  Waterfowl Ecology

 

In recognition of the importance of waterfowl to Illinois, the Survey employed Arthur S. Hawkins and Frank C. Bellrose to initiate a waterfowl research program in 1938. They began studies on studies of duck food availability and launched the fall migration waterfowl inventory that continues to this day at the Stephen A. Forbes Biological Field Station and Frank C. Bellrose Waterfowl Research CenterFor more on the history of waterfowl research, download INHS SP 10 - The Forbes Biological Station.
