Conservation has made amazing progress in New York state. Beginning over fifty years ago, when forestry alone was given consideration, the concept of conservation has gradually broadened to include not only forests but lands, fish, game, inland waters, and recreational values. Dr. Illick has made a detailed study of this metamorphosis of the conservation idea in New York state. Everyone interested in state conservation activities will find this study of unusual interest. It also contributes to a better understanding of recent trends in national conservation activities.
