This new text presents a balanced introduction to natural resource management for courses that cover wildlife management and fisheries extensively. Early chapters cover the development of wildlife management in both natural and recreational contexts (such as wildlife history, conservation, administration, habitat, endangered species, and interactions with humans); later sections help students identify individual species, including large and small mammals, game birds, ducks, geese, swans, avian predators, and more. Listings of key terms clearly introduce the scientific and technical language of resource management to provide students an engaging and understandable presentation of the issues facing our fish and wildlife natural resources today.
