Wildlife Publication Awards

The Society’s Wildlife Publication Awards recognize excellence in scientific literature of wildlife biology and management issued within the last three years. The publications selected are characterized by originality of research or thought and a high scholastic standard in the manner of presentation.  Four categories of research or management-oriented publications are eligible for awards: book, edited book, article/journal paper and monograph. Fishery publications are excluded since these are the prerogative of the American Fisheries Society.

The first Wildlife Publication Award was presented in 1940, just three years after the founding of The Wildlife Society.
