Symposia and workshops on the American Woodcock have been held periodically since 1966. The Ninth Woodcock Symposium was held January 26-28, 1997 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This was the second symposium held during the 1990s. These meetings bring together researchers, managers, and administrators to discuss and report current information on the ecology and management of this fine species. Papers presented at the Ninth Symposium ranged from philosophical and descriptive to highly technical and included several presentations by colleagues from Europe on scolopax rusticola. Habitat use and factors affecting woodcock survival continue to be a research priority and this is reflected by the number of papers dealing with these issues. Continuing the precedent set by the Sixth Woodcock Symposium, manuscripts published in this proceedings went through a formal peer review process before being accepted.
