From the text ... 'This long awaited book is the product of a joint effort by the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) and the USDA Forest Service (USFS). Another in an impressive list of definitive species accounts published by Stackpole Books, The Wild Turkey: Biology and Management is destined to become as highly regarded as some of the others. The last complete treatment on the subject was The Wild Turkey and Its Management, edited by O.H. Hewitt and published by The Wildlife Society in 1967, Since that time, monumental restoration efforts and improved research technology have increased both the range of the species and the volume of knowledge concerning them. A completely new account was both justified and badly needed.' © 1993 The Wildlife Society. Abstract reproduced by permission.
