Fire in North American Wetland Ecosystems and Fire-Wildlife Relations: An Annotated Bibliography

Appendix A

The Literature on Fire Indexed in Wildlife Review
1935 through September 1987.

(Numbers 1-206)

Introduction

Wildlife Review has compiled the literature on wildlife management and research for more than 50 years. Coverage has expanded over time with the current volumes addressing substantially more topics, greater numbers of publications, and greater numbers of key words for each citation. Originally hand-collected, the texts are now computer-generated and form an interactive data base used by both the national and international research and management communities.

Titles included in Wildlife Review address some aspect of the life history or management of a "wildlife species." "Wildlife" in this context generally includes all terrestrial vertebrates, marine mammals, and nonobligate aquatic species. Fish and other aquatic species are not addressed; invertebrates are addressed only in the context of their relationship to vertebrate species as prey, parasites, etc.; and publications that discuss habitat per se, for example, without discussing its relevance to or interaction with wildlife, do not appear. This bibliography on fire-wildlife relationships is thus unlike a bibliography that would be formed if one generally searched the literature for titles on fire-wildlife relationships. It is therefore a unique review, with a purposefully narrow focus despite its broad coverage of literature and topics.
