Abstract:In this meaty article the author, well known as a forester and authority on game management, calls attention to the environmental requirements of game to assure their thrift and welfare. He emphasizes the variation of needs according to species, season and circumstance, and the necessity of balancing the dispersion of the elements making up each environmental type for each species. The article plainly indicates the reason for the differences in game population in specific areas and suggests how the productivity of a game range may be enhanced.
