The Effects of Management Practices on Grassland Birds

Professional Paper 1842
Edited by: Douglas H. JohnsonLawrence D. IglJill A. Shaffer, and John P. DeLong



Populations of grassland birds have been declining more precipitously than any other group of North American birds. These declines highlight the need to understand the habitat requirements of grassland birds and how management practices affect grassland birds and their habitats. The demand for information on management and its effects on grassland birds led to the writing of this multichapter compendium. This document includes front matter for the entire compendium, including the foreword, the preface, and an index to all of the chapters.
