Example text

It superficially resembles that of the pinon jay, but the music of the pinoneros is soft and nostalgic as the haze hanging in their native canyons, while that of the Guacamaja is louder and full of the salty enthusiasm of high comedy" (Leopold 19370, 10). Leopold later included the essay, in revised form, in A Sand County Almanac under the tide "Guacamaja" (the native name for the thickbilled parrot). It was, in essence, the first installment in the collection of essays to come. (See table I. ) Emboldened perhaps by The Condor's publication of his rather unorthodox essay, Leopold followed it up with "Marshland Elegy," his haunting ode to cranes and their wetland homes (Leopold 1937a), published in American Forests in October of 1937.

But there are encouraging signs today in America regarding public and private lands. Public land management has evolved from the concept of multiple use to ecosystem management (Grumbine 1992). Although not very different in principle, these two approaches are radically different in practice. Under multiple use, we overused our lands. Under ecosystem management, we have another chance to rediscover our stewardship responsibilities. Stewardship is defined by our capacity to place land health above the land's many uses.

The field was expanding to encompass not only game species, but also nongame animals and (at least for some managers) wild plants. At the same time, concern for threatened species and biotic communities was increasing (Leopold 1936). Wildlife management was securing an academic foothold in both basic and applied sciences, particularly in field ecology (Leopold 1939). Its practitioners were beginning to explore methods of restoring native species and communities. Its theoreticians were beginning to develop more sophisticated connections with colleagues in education, the agricultural sciences, economics, and public policy.
