For more than a half century, breeding grounds have been the foci of attention in waterfowl management and research. Only during the last decade, however, have researchers begun to analyze how winter and migration habitats affect the birds' survival.

Addressing the needs of managers, researchers, ecologists, and students, "Habitat Management for Wintering and Migrating Waterfowl in North America" represents the first comprehensive overview of management strategies for nonbreeding waterfowl throughout North America.

Each contribution comprises incisive review, previously unpublished reports, and heretofore undocumented strategies for habitat management. Twenty chapters focus on the ecology and management of key habitats along the four North American flyways. The concluding chapter is devoted to biopolitical strategies for ensuring the preservation of waterfowl habitat.
