The National Audubon Society has just released its annual Wildlife Report, the latest in an extraordinarily valuable series that began in 1985. Each volume has an extensive profile of a federal conservation agency (this year's is the National Marine Fisheries Service), a flock of chapters on the natural history and status of various species, a couple hundred pages on selected programs of various federal agencies, another series of articles on "conservation challenges" and, finally, a handy series of appendices with addresses and phone numbers. It is an amazing job and an invaluable resource. Audubon Wildlife Report 1988/89, Academic Press (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich), 1988, 817 pages, $49.95 hardback, $24.95 paperback. Previous editions are still available.
