The Technology of Bobwhite Management: The Theory Behind the Practice is of general interest to biologists concerned with theories of management for upland game birds and of specific interest to those who study or manage bobwhites.
Author: Fred Guthery
Declines in populations of bobwhite quail that began over a hundred years ago are being exacerbated by lingering misconceptions of the bird's biology and management. Many of the principles upon which wildlife ecologists and managers rely have long ago been shown to be incomplete or simply incorrect. Historically accepted traditions of management stand ready for amendment. In light of history and present circumstances, Dr. Guthery looks at bobwhites and their management from a fresh perspective. While stressing theory-based management, the author integrates recent research findings into current concepts of biology and management, and critically examines the historical concepts upon which managers base their decisions. The Technology of Bobwhite Management represents the author's formulation of a theoretical basis that takes bobwhite management forward without the encumbrance of false and outdated principles. Dr. Guthery offers wildlife ecologists and quail managers an opportunity to revise their thinking about bobwhites in light of protocols, processes and research that take management decisions into the realm of science and technology.

Consciously or not, wildlife managers generally act from a theoretical basis, although they may not be fully versed in the details or ramifications of that theory. In practice, the predictions of the practitioners sometimes prove more accurate than those of the theoreticians. Practitioners and theoreticians need to work together, but this proves difficult when new management ideas and cutting-edge ecological theory are often published in separate scientific outlets with distinctly different readerships. A compilation of the scientific papers presented at the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute's 25th Anniversary Conference of April 2006, Wildlife Science: Linking Ecological Theory and Management Applications brings together these two often separate approaches to elucidate the theoretical underpinnings of wildlife management and to apply evolving ecological concepts to changes and adaptations in management practices. Gathering many of the best and greatest minds in wildlife science, this volume addresses the critically important theme of linking ecological theory and management applications. Divided into five parts, the first two parts deal with the landscape ecology of birds and mammals respectively, demonstrating the need for applied theory in gamebird management and the preservation of the cougar. Part three highlights the role of climate when applying ecological theory to habitat management and discusses the emergence of ecosystem management in managing wildlife at the ecosystem scale. Part four considers the management of wildlife disease and reveals the increasing importance of genetics in conservation and ecology. Finally, the economic and social issues affecting wildlife science round out the coverage in part five. Applying emerging ecological theory for the advancement of wildlife management, Wildlife Science: Linking Ecological Theory and Management Applications provides a long awaited cooperative look at the future of ecosystem management.

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 p

Excerpt from The Bobwhite Quail and Its Management in Florida This bulletin is written for all who have an interest in Florida's most im portant upland game bird, the bobwhite quail. The landowner, hunter, and nature lover will find here discussed the factors which control our quail p0pu1a tions and explanations of the ways by which these populations may be main tained and increased. We strongly feel that the information here summarized and presented can enable all of us to have a better understanding of this excellent game bird. All game species produced in the wild are products of the land, their welfare dependent on general land use practices. Fortunately, the bob white quail responds well to favorable land management and habitat improve ment. Perhaps more than in the case of any other game bird, the status of our quail population depends upon the individual landowners, and upon their pro grams of land management.

"Until recently, inferring identities of predators and monitoring cryptic behaviors at the nest was time-consuming, often with anecdotal results. No more. Video nest surveillance, so aptly revealed in this volume, has ushered in a new era of data collection that allows field workers to link environmental factors with such aspects as the temporal dynamics of predator communities in relation to what the birds are doing at their nests, thus removing much of the guesswork of earlier studies."--Spencer G. Sealy, University of Manitoba ""Video Surveillance of Nesting Birds" shatters earlier beliefs about how birds interact with nest predators. Much of what we thought we knew about nesting and its hazards was flat-out wrong, as authors in this book discovered by using modern technology in the field. As simple as we would like our models of animal behavior to be, this book shows that reality is far more complex and nuanced."--Douglas H. Johnson, University of Minnesota

Northern bobwhites are one of the most popular game birds in the United States. In Texas alone, nearly 100,000 hunters take to the field each fall and winter to pursue wild bobwhite quail. Texas is arguably the last remaining state with sufficient habitat to provide quail-hunting opportunities on a grand scale, and Texas ranchers with good bobwhite habitat often generate a greater proportion of their income from fees paid by quail hunters than from livestock production. Managing and expanding bobwhite habitat makes good sense economically, and it benefits the environment as well. The rangelands and woodlands of Texas that produce quail also support scores of other species of wildlife. Texas Bobwhites is a field guide to the seeds commonly eaten by northern bobwhites, as well as a handbook for conserving and improving northern bobwhite habitat. It provides identifying characteristics for the seeds of 91 species of grasses, forbs, woody plants, and succulents. Each seed description includes a close-up and a scale photo of the seed and the plant that produces it, along with a range map. Using this information, hunters can readily identify concentrations of plants that are most likely to attract quail. Landowners and rangeland managers will greatly benefit from the book's state-of-the-art guidance for habitat management and restoration, including improving habitat dominated by invasive and nonnative grasses.
