This new book represents a major revision of the first edition and addresses all aspects of waterfowl ecology and management under one cover. The second edition is expanded to 2,800 references arrayed across 11 chapters such as classification, courtship behavior and pair-bond formation, reproduction, feeding ecology, breeding and winter periods, mortality and harvest management, wetlands and wetland management, major waterfowl habitats, and policy and administration. The new edition also includes 16 “infoboxes,” which are stand-alone inserts in the various chapters. The infoboxes present information on important waterfowl people, places, and issues. Coverage also has been expanded to address important waterfowl habitats around the globe and address a broad array of issues and examples of waterfowl ecology from the international literature.

A contemporary, in-depth account on the basic biological and ecological principles regulating population dynamics from courtship and pair formation activities through breeding and wintering biology to molting and feeding ecology. Delves into pertinent problems facing waterfowl managers such as prioritizing the importance of wetlands habitats commensurate with the inroads of urbanization and agriculture.From the Inside Flap:
"This remarkably lucid textbook...is a tribute to the authors’ organizational and writing skills. Guy Baldassarre and Eric Bolen make complex findings understandable, a difficult task given the ‘avalanche’ of research papers that have emanated from university research centers, biological stations, and conservation agencies over the last three decades." —from the Foreword by Professor Frank C. Bellrose "We used Waterfowl Ecology and Management in a graduate waterfowl ecology class at the University of Maine. The text covers a wide variety of topics in depth and is timely. I recommend it highly." —Prof. Ray B. Owen, Jr. University of Maine This extremely well-written, exquisitely illustrated book offers students and professional conservationists alike the first exhaustive treatment of contemporary waterfowl ecology and management. Its comprehensive treatment reflects the collaborative effort of two of North America’s most active waterfowl researchers and educators, Guy Baldassarre and Eric G. Bolen. Unlike books that deal largely with aspects of the natural history of waterfowl, this unique text provides a unified treatment of all essential aspects of waterfowl ecology coupled with a critical investigation of the general principles of waterfowl habitats and their direct and indirect management. The distillation of more than 1,600 scientific papers and reports garnered from sources around the world, as well as the authors’ original research, this compendium summarizes virtually all that is currently known about North American waterfowl—feeding ecology, mortality, courtship, reproduction, and much more. Just as importantly, the authors never lose sight of crucial issues surrounding waterfowl management, both from the standpoints of habitat and official policy. Coming at what may be the most critical time in history for waterfowl, this important text is an invaluable reference for students, practicing conservationists, environmentalists, government policy makers, and all those concerned with the future of this group of wildlife and their habitats. Featuring more than 100 beautiful photographs and the elegant drawings of artist D. Andrew Saunders, Waterfowl Ecology and Management is as esthetically enriching as it is scientifically rigorous.
