Bone marrow fat as an indicator of condition in roe deer

A method for the estimation of bone marrow fat levels described by Neiland (1970) gave high correlations with results obtained by an organic solvent extraction. The method was used to indicate body condition in roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) culled from two populations over four winters and from animals considered to be in poor condition at the time of death.
