Assessment of a Mallard Model in
Minnesota's Prairie Coteau


We thank R. Greenwood and W. Mulvaney for project advice and for specifications for various equipment. Discussions with M. Riggs regarding project design and statistical analysis were enlightening as were his comments regarding the manuscript. R. Meyer, P. Loegering, R. Peterson, S. Kallin, and R. Markl were helpful with landowner contacts and field logistics. J. Olson and T. Barber generously housed decoy hens at their farms. M. Aili, J. DiMatteo, B. Engles, D. Headbird, J. Heggeness, K. Koski, M. Moeller, S. Missahgi, R. Schons, K. Stramer, and T. Turner conducted much of the field work. A. Grewe lent us a radioreceiver during April 1990. Discussions with L. Cowardin, T. Shaffer, and P. Arnold regarding data strengths and shortcomings have been valuable. D. Hertel helped with descriptions of the habitat mapping. A. Berner, M. Hanson, R. Kimmel, R. Lake, J. Lawrence, J. Lokemoen, S. Maxson, and T. Shaffer also provided helpful comments on the manuscript. The study was funded in a large part by the Reinvest In Minnesota program.
