Waterfowl Management Handbook

January 1, 1988

The North American Waterfowl Management Plan, the Service's most recent mandate for management of migratory waterfowl, and recent legislation such as the Farm Bill all underscore the need for a single source of information about the management of waterfowl and their habitat. Much of this information exists in scientific papers, unpublished reports, or has never been recorded, and thus is not readily accessible by waterfowl managers. A prototype handbook was developed in 1987 and critiqued by 38 reviewers who provided suggestions on style and substance as well as topics for inclusion. The assistance of these reviewers, who included Federal and State wildlife managers, Federal and State biologists, and scientists in the United States and Canada, is most gratefully acknowledged. This product differs from most Fish and Wildlife Leaflets. It will be issued as a series of chapters over the next several years, each with a unique number, designed to be inserted in an accompanying looseleaf binder.
