Biographical Note for Wildlife Research :

Scientists in the Section of Wildlife Research study the biological principles that influence wildlife resources in Illinois, with the objective of developing management practices that will assure the best use of these resources.1 The staff includes specialists in mammalogy, ornithology, nongame birds, wildlife population and ecology, and environmental quality. One specialist also acts as Head of the section.2

In 1934, wildlife research was recognized by the establishment of the Section of Game Research and Management. In 1950, the Survey transferred the personnel and administrative responsibilities of the Cooperative Wildlife Research program, embracing Federal Aid research, to the Section. Four years later, the Section of Forestry was abolished, and its wildlife activities and personnel transferred to the Section of Game Research and Management.3 In 1956, the name of the section was changed to Wildlife Research.4
