 Cuvier's gazelle, Edmi gazelle
The Algerian population of Cuvier's gazelle studied by Sellami and Bouredjli (1991) was predominated by adult females (58.24%), while adult males (20.87%), young (15.92%), and subadults (5.05%) existed in significantly lower numbers.
This gazelle is threatened by a highly fragmented population, hindering genetic migration and increasing the risk of localized extinction.
Accurate population censuses are difficult to perform in the forested areas of the range of Cuvier's gazelle, although de Smet (1991) estimated the Algerian population at 560, with the caveat that this may be an underestimate.

 Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens: Soemmerring’s Gazelle
All gazelles are especially adapted for arid conditions, which enables them to exploit food resources beyond the range of water dependent herbivores and too meager to support large competitors, e.g., addax and oryx.
Gazelles also move seasonally into subdesert and desert to eat the highly nutritious herbage that grows during the brief rainy season, and back to better-watered savannas in the prolonged dry season.
Historically, Soemmerring’s gazelles have been known to be migratory, aggregating and moving in herds of hundreds or thousands of animals.
