The purposes of this style manual for technical publications are: (1). to provide guidelines for authors preparing scientific or technical documents in the Wildlife Program, and (2). to summarize the review and production procedures and identify areas of responsibility for all persons involved in the production of such documents. It consists of three parts: the format and production of wildlife technical documents, a style guide to scientific writing, and style notes for good writing. This publication uses selected guidelines from several sources, which, in combination, fit the publication needs of the Wildlife Program.
