Abstract: Land-use changes and wetland drainage have adversely affected duck production in the prairie pothole region. Maintenance of waterfowl populations in the future will depend increasingly on areas managed for waterfowl production, such as those purchased under the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) Waterfowl Production Area (WPA) program. Management of upland habitats to provide attractive and secure nesting cover for dabbling ducks is a high priority activity on WPAs.
