We collected information from Oklahoma hunters during a telephone survey conducted in February 1997, to compare demographics of scaled quail (Callipepla squamata) and northern bobwhite quail (Colinus virginianus) hunters to other hunters. Eight hundred...
Aware of the time lag that frequently exists between declines in biodiversity and effective conservation to correct and reverse the declines, I examine some reasons behind this problem. Experience with species as diverse as the shag (Phalacrocorax...
An experimental habitat management program was initiated to improve the carrying capacity for northern bobwhites (Colinus virginianus) on private lands by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) in 1974. During 1975-80, extensive habitat...
Understanding terrestrial carbon metabolism is critical because terrestrial ecosystems play a major role in the global carbon cycle. Furthermore, humans have severely disrupted the carbon cycle in ways that will alter the climate system and directly...
With changing demographic, socio-cultural, and economic conditions in the last 2 3 decades, wildland fire regimes are undergoing rapid changes worldwide. Increasing fire pressure on some regions and reduction of fire in others are noted. While perhumid...
Today's prescribed fire program manager is confronted with an increasingly complex dilemma. On the one hand, the science, knowledge, and commitment of managers regarding the role of prescribed fire across the landscape have grown appreciatively,...
