The Waterfowl Management Handbook is organized in four sections:
- Waterfowl Ecology
- Population Management
- Wetlands Ecology
- Habitat Management
The handbook was originally produced as Fish and Wildlife Leaflet 13; that is why the sections are numbered 13.1, 13.2, 13.3, and 13.4. Each chapter here is a separate file in Portable Document Format (PDF). These PDF files can be viewed and printed across all major computing platforms using the Adobe® Acrobat® Reader, which can be downloaded free of charge from http://www.adobe.com/prodindex/acrobat/readstep.html.
The original handbook was produced by Diana Cross and the CD-ROM version by Paul Vohs, Office of Information Transfer, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. However, that office has been closed and print and CD-ROM versions of the handbook are no longer available.
