The rice agriculture and conservation communities have a mutually beneficial and long-lasting relationship with shared interests in habitat management for wetland-dependent birds, sustainable rice production and conservation of natural resources such as soil and water. The fact that the rice industry holds great conservation potential is documented throughout scientific literature. It is our hope that these research publications will serve rice producers, agriculture and wildlife researchers, extension agents, students and outdoor enthusiasts alike to foster an understanding of conservation in ricelands, and make additional positive strides for our future.
