Chestnut Blight

Description: "Chestnut blight, caused by a fungus brought into this country from Asia before 1904, is responsible for the death of millions of acres of chestnut growth in New England and the Middle Atlantic States. The disease spread rapidly to nearly all parts of the range of the native chestnut, and the remaining stands of the southern Appalachians face certain destruction. The present known distribution, its symptoms, and the fungus that causes the disease are described. The blight fungus itself does not have any effect upon the strength of chestnut timber, and blight-killed trees can be utilized for poles, posts, cordwood, lumber, and extract wood. Search is being made for native and foreign chestnuts resistant to the disease in the hope of finding a tree suitable for replacing the rapidly disappearing stands. Seedlings of Asiatic chestnuts, which have considerable natural resistance even though not immune, are being tested in the United States." -- p. ii

Propagation of Aquatic Game Birds

Description: "A surprisingly large number (nearly 50 species) of the ducks, geese, and swans of North America have been bred in captivity, most of them, however, upon only a small scale. About 20 species have been bred rather frequently either in this country or abroad, and at least one of them, the common mallard duck, can be propagated as readily as, if not more readily than, the ring-necked pheasant of the group of upland game birds. The directions for propagating here given apply primarily to the mallard and the Canada goose, the most frequently reared birds of their groups. These directions summarize the experience of the most successful breeders both in the United States and in Europe. Exceptional treatment found desirable in the care of other species is noted." -- p. 1
