AbstractThe age composition of a sample of a Stoat population from the Netherlands was studied. Various relative age criteria were tested on their validity in separating age groups. The study of the layered cemental deposits contributed the most important part to the final conclusions. By using also the data on the sexual cycle of the Stoat, a theoretically expected age pyramid was calculated, which was compared with the actually found age composition.
