For agricultural extension professionals, nature conservatory staff and others, this book offers complete coverage of a very complex subject. Wildlife and Natural Resource Management provides detailed, in-depth looks at many subjects such as: the history of wildlife conservation in America, the history of modern wildlife and fisheries management, the various federal and state agencies responsible for wildlife and fisheries management, the financing of wildlife conservation in America, and the numerous private conservation organizations are all discussed in detail. Wildlife and Natural Resource Management also provides a look at fossil fuels, their role in our society and their conservation, as well as discussing soil, forest, and water management and conservation. The habitat requirements, feeding and breeding habits of most species of native fauna are discussed. Descriptions and ranges are covered with photos where possible. Endangered species and the Endangered Species Act and its effect of endangered species are also covered. The glossary and appendices are complete to be useful to the student. While a tremendous amount of information is presented between the covers, it is written in such a way as to be easy to read and hold the reader's attention.
