Return to Research Introduction

This 25 page summary includes 340 publications known to have directly resulted from the 1967-1982 Accelerated Research Program (ARP). The publications are listed by three regions' Eastern, Central, and Western and by state within each region (ed. note: then by year within state). Publications resulting from group efforts among states (e.g. Four-Corners Bandtail Study and the book "Management of Migratory Shore and Upland Game Bird Species in North America") were listed by state of the senior author or editor. A section on U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service publications is also enclosed.
