My purpose in this paper is to outline a research and management manifesto for the northern bobwhite in the 1990's. My objectives are to (1) describe the probable causes for the northern bobwhite population decline, (2) outline the research agenda that will be required to solve northern bobwhite habitat management problems, and (3) describe some strategies that extension services and private interest groups can use to educate the public about bobwhite habitat and population management techniques.┬ęThe Wildlife Society.
