Wildlife Research Challenges Of The 80'S: Focus On The Southeast

An overview of the wildlife technical papers published in the proceedings of the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies during the period 1971 through 1980 was presented. Over 64 percent (N =404) of the papers dealt with game animals while only 13 percent considered nonharvested species. In terms of subject matter, 48 percent of the papers dealt with species ecology with greater emphasis on aspects of status, habitat utilization and food habits than on characteristics of populations, physiology or behavior. Factors limiting the productivity, effectiveness, and application of wildlife research to resource management problems, as well as thoughts about the direction of future wildlife research were presented.
