Conservation and management recommendations for imperiled Alabama wildlife
 
Alabama is blessed with tremendous natural wealth that spans aquatic and terrestrial habitats from the Gulf beaches to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. This great physical diversity produces numerous habitat types and the abundant wildlife species they support. Yet many vertebrate and invertebrate population sin the state are struggling against serious threats, such as habitat loss, dam construction, environmental contaminants, siltation, disease, invasive species, and overcollecting.
 
This volume builds on Volumes 1–3 of the four-volume set by providing detailed information on the general and specific research and management needs of the species within the state that are rated at the highest level of conservation concern. Its message is directed to the professional wildlife researches and managers, planners, consultants, and teachers involved in the study, assessment, and protection of endangered populations of the state.
 
Ralph E. Mirarchi is former William R. and Fay Ireland Distinguished Professor of Wildlife Ecology and Management at Auburn University.
“Regardless of their abundance, each species is part of the gift that has been bestowed upon us. Each has its place, role, and function. As the most intelligent beings on this planet, and those capable of impacting it the most, we have been given the responsibility to allow other organisms their space and to understand their roles and functions as best we can.”
—from the foreword by Gary H. Moody, Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries
