Game Surveys and Studies, 1952-1980, 1952 - 1980

Identifier: ACC 85-081:

Scope and Contents

Consists of project reports for wildlife surveys and studies conducted by the Department of Game, Fish, and Parks - Division of Wildlife (formerly, the Division of Game and Fish) between 1952 and 1980. Most of the reports concern avian wildlife issues such as nesting cover, brooding, reproduction, survival, and the effects of diseases and other environmental factors on quail, pheasant, gray partridge, grouse, prairie chicken, and waterfowl.

These surveys and studies were funded as Pittman-Robertson Federal Aid projects. The Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act of 1937 (16 U.S.C. 669), also known as the Pittman-Robertson Act, provides federal assistance to the fifty states, the commonwealths of Puerto Rico and the Northern Mariana Islands, and the territories of American Samoa, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands for projects to restore, enhance, and manage wildlife resources, and to conduct state hunter education programs.
