Description - Wildlife Science by Joseph P. Sands

Despite the potential synergy that can result from basing management applications on results from research, there is a polarization of cultures between wildlife managers and wildlife researchers. Wildlife Science: Connecting Research with Management provides strategies for bridging cultural and communication gaps between these groups.

Contributors present case studies highlighting the role of state and federal agencies and private organizations in management and research; the lingering disconnects between grassland birds, quail, and deer research and management; as well as the development of management techniques from field research, rangelands management, and ranch management.

Case Studies:

  • The Disconnect between Quail Research and Quail Management

  • Sage-Grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) and the Disconnect between Research and Management on Public Lands in the American West

  • Ecological Goals, not Standardized Methods, are needed to Create and Maintain Habitat for Grassland Birds

  • A Historic Perspective of the Connectivity between Waterfowl Research and Management

  • Deer in the Western United States

  • Whitetail deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in the Eastern United States

  • Impacts of Wind Energy Development on Wildlife: Challenges and Opportunities for Integrated Science, Management, and Policy

  • The Role of Joint Ventures in Bridging the Gap between Research and Management

  • Developing Management Strategies from Research: the Pushmataha Forest
