ALDO STARKER LEOPOLD October22, 1913August23, 1983 BY ROBERT A. McCABE WHEN A CREATIVE, innovative, talented, and intelligent colleague cries, we mourn his loss and honor his accom- plishments in print, and doing so honor him no less than clid the ancient Egyptians who carver! pictures of their noble dead on the walls of tombs. Such a colleague was A. Starker Leopold, who died of a heart attack in his home in Berkeley, California, on August 23, 1983. A. Starker Leopold was born in Burlington, Iowa, on October 22, 19 ~ 3, the oldest son of Aldo Leopold and EstelIa Bergere Leopold. Both his father and grandfather were out- doorsmen in the tradition of the early Midwest, and Starker in his turn was schooled in natural history and imbued with a sense of responsibility for the wild and free. While he was still a young boy, the family moved to Madison, Wisconsin, where Starker grew up. In 1936 he graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a B.S. de- gree in agriculture and went on to Yale, then to the University of California at Berkeley for graduate study. In 1944 he re- ceived his Ph.D. from Berkeley, where the eminent ornithol- ogist Alden H. Miller guided his zoological studies. His doc- toral thesis, The Nature of Heritable Witness in Turkeys, was perhaps the first attempt to acIdress the subject of wildness in birds. 237
238 BIOGRAPHICAL MEMOIRS "The objectives of the study have been to determine insofar as possible the fundamental, heritable differences between wild and domestic turkeys and to compare the ecological relationships and general productivity of exist- ing turkey populations which differ in degree of 'wildness.' The problem is of practical importance in wild turkey management because the inter- mixing of the domestic strain with wild populations has had certain ad- verse effects upon the hardiness of the native turkeys of Missouri. It is of theoretical importance in offering an opportunity better to understand the nature of wildness in a locally adapted, indigenous race of birds." ( 1945,1, p. 133) Leopold's results were commensurate with these stated ob- jectives, and his paper, with its insights into the biology and behavior of turkeys, stands as a major contribution to the understanding of avian hilliness. Though Starker LeopoIc! functioned well as a lone scien- tist dealing with an ecological problem, he was also an excel- lent team worker. He listener! to and understood the opinions of others, appreciated skills he himself did not possess, and was tolerant of the shortcomings of his associates. In 1952 he teamed with an ecologist who had few (if any) shortcomings: F. Fraser (Frank) Darling, then of the University of Edin- burgh. The two undertook an ecological reconnaissance of Alaska to assess the current and potential impact of economic growth and technology on the natural resources of that ter- ritory, with particular reference to big game. Together they spent four months traveling, observing, and conducting in- terviews sponsored by the New York Zoological Society and the Conservation Foundation. Their efforts resulted in a clear, concise book unencumbered! by jargon: "At the outset we stated that ideally a program of conservation and of land use should be devised before a new country is developed. Unfortunately the motive for conservation usually is impending shortage, which leads us to trim the resource boat after it is half full of water. But in Alaska, despite some buffeting about, the land resources are still largely intact, and what is more, they are still in government rather than private hands. The prob-
ALDO STARKER LEOPOLD 239 lem of planning and executing the best possible development of the Territory is therefore squarely up to the government. " . . . fif] mechanical and administrative difficulties can be overcome, we visualize an unusual opportunity for application of the principles of conservation to a fascinating and magnificent stretch of country." (1953,7, pp. 1 14-1 15) It is difficult to evaluate the impact of that report on a state that has had more reports on its welfare and its resources than any other, but what could be said was perhaps best stated by Fairfield Osborn: "We could not have been more fortunate in the selection of the reconnais- sance team for this study. Two eminent naturalists, one from the Old World and one from the New, have pooled their knowledge and experience to produce this report. On behalf of the two sponsoring organizations, it is a deep pleasure to commend and thank Dr. A. Starker Leopold and Dr. F. Fraser Darling for their accomplishment." (1953,7, Foreword) Realizing the plight of our natural resources, S. Udall sought to achieve adequate stewardship of the land through science ant! education. He called on Starker Leopold to chair the Department of Interior Advisory Board on Wildlife Man- agement.i LeopoIct's Boars! first addressed the problem of wilcIlife management in the national parks, examining goals, policies, and methods of national wildlife management: "The goal of managing the national parks and monuments should be to preserve, or where necessary to recreate, the ecological scene as viewed by the first European visitors. As part of this scene, native species of wild animals should be present in maximum variety and reasonable abundance. Protection alone, which has been the core of Park Service wildlife policy, is not adequate to achieve this goal. Habitat manipulation is helpful and often essential to restore or maintain animal numbers. Likewise, popula- tions of the animals themselves must sometimes be regulated to prevent habitat damage; this is especially true of ungulates." (1963,1, p. 43) ' Stewart L. Udall, The Quiet Crisis (New York: Halt, Rinehart and Winston, 1953), p. 209.
240 BIOGRAPHICAL MEMOIRS Ungulate excess within the National Parks became a core issue, exciting the hunting public, but the Committee con- cluclec! that: "Direct removal by killing is the most economical and elective way of regulating ungulates within a park. Game removal by shooting should be conducted under the complete jurisdiction of qualified park personnel and solely for the purpose of reducing animals to preserve park values. Rec- reational hunting is an inappropriate and nonconforming use of the na- tional parks and monuments." (1963,1, p. 43) This forthright position in the face of opposition was a cor- nerstone in National Park programs for wildlife manage- ment. The Advisory Board then investigated unnecessary cle- struction of animals by the Branch of Predator and Rodent Control of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service ~c. . . augmented by state, county, and inclivid~ual endeavor," ant! recommended: ". . . a complete reassessment of the goals, policies, and field operations of the Branch of Predator and Rodent Control with a view to limiting the killing program strictly to cases of proven need, as determined by rigidly prescribed criteria." (1964,1, p. 47) The Board's report was and still is- the most penetrating assessment of Unitecl States government control of animals, and it put the responsibility for correcting the unwarranted destruction of animals on the Fish and Wildlife Service. Its appearance was followed by a series of rebuttals and expla- nations in defense of existing programs, but changes also resulted. Finally, the Board LeopoIc! chaired evaluated the National WilcIlife Refuge System to "appraise the significance of the national refuges in migratory biro} conservation, with em- phasis on waterfowl." Their report recommended the estab- lishment of eleven more refuges, better financial support for
ALDO STARKER LEOPOLD 241 existing refuges, and detailed long-range and multiple-use planning. Perhaps the most significant recommendation was that: "National wildlife refuges should be extensively used for research and teaching by qualified scientists and naturalists. In many localities refuges are the only land units devoted solely to wildlife preservation, and thus offer unique possibilities for continuous research and ecologic education." (1968,4, p. 52) The Advisory Board's evaluations of wildlife manage- mentor, as they are universally known, the "Leopold Re- ports" are outstanding for their concision and depth of understanding. Though not everything they recommended came to fruition, the reports themselves are benchmarks in national conservation. Written with Riney, McCain, and Tevis, Leopold's ecological evaluation of the California jaw- bone deer herd (1951,2) was another significant contribution to the assessment of our natural resources. Though now nearly forty years old, both the data and narrative portions of this bulletin could serve as patterns for modern big game · · Investigations. In 196 ~ Leopold produced a book on the desert for TIME- 1~IFE'S Fife Nature Library series (196l,1), a testimony to his intellectual versatility. In keeping with the format of that se- ries he traced the work of wind and water as well as the ecol- ogy of men and animals living in the arid environments of the world. His chapters six, "Life Patterns in Arid Lands," and seven, "Man Against Desert," are particularly enlight- en~ng. But Starker Leopold's magnum opus was his survey, Wildlife of Mexico: The Game Birds and Mammals (1959,31. A skilled and astute field scientist, he began fieldwork for this impressive work in 1944 and ended it only with the book's publication in 1959. He followed up an initial two years in the field with
242 BIOGRAPHICAL MEMOIRS a variety of short trips, and in the summer of 1948 ~ accom- panied him on one of these expeditions. Little escaped Starker's attention, as he recorded all facets of the ecology and natural history of his fifty-one camp study sites extend- ing from the northern Sonoran border to the Yucatan. His fluent Spanish helped him in getting both official sanction from comasarios (officials) and guidance and information from landowners ant! campesinos (farmers). Well written, easy to understand, and vital to Latin Amer- . scan conservationists, Wildlife of Mexico won the WilcIlife So- ciety's 1959 publication of the year award. As one reviewer aptly put it: "This publication is not only indispensable to any serious student of Mexican game birds and mammals, but it is also a guide to all thirsting Mexican citizens who are interested in managing a valuable resource through wise use. It sets a pattern that other Latin American countries might well strive to emulate."2 In order that it could be used in Latin America, Leopold's book was translated into Spanish in 1965 by Luis Macias ArelIano and Ambrosio Gonzales Cortes. It is a landmark publication for conservation in Mexico and Latin America. In 1979, Leopold again won the Wildlife Society's publi- cation award for his book on the California quad! (1977,1~. One of the finest monographs on single species in the field of wildlife ecology, it contains not only insights into the ecol- ogy and life history of the species but also exemplary sug- gestions for the management of western quails. On his last hart/cover book, Leopold collaborated with Gutierrez and Bronson to provide information on the life histories of 135 game species of the Uniter! States, Canada, and northern Mexico.

ALDO STARKER LEOPOLD 243 that are hunted or trapped, North American Game Birds and Mammals (1981,1) is a valuable and accessible source of in- formation for wildlife students and administrators. Choosing the right hypothesis to test and the too! most likely to solve a problem is an art. Starker Leopold's investi- gative choices were inspired, and he applied himself untir- ingly to follow them through to make worthy contributions to science. Excelling as a field ecologist, he was not parochial and in the field often found time to collect and prepare mu- seum specimens for colleagues interested in classification and evolution. Nor did he limit himself to any particular species or group, as his many and varied Published naners amolv testify. 1 1 1 1 ~ Though dedicated, he did not sacrifice everything to his science. Throughout his life he divided his time among work, family, and hobbies (particularly hunting and fishing) and managed to do justice to all. Starker was a quiet and dignified man who was always neat and well groomed. He was jovial and fun loving without being boisterous. He was at ease among friends, with stran- gers, or on a lecture platform. Polite and well mannered, he gave special consideration to others. He had friends in all walks of life from a member of the President's cabinet to a Mexican farmer eking out a living on the mountain slopes of Hidaigo and a sheepherder in the Australian outback. He also came from a remarkable family, and both his brother, I.una, and his sister, EstelIa, were elected to mem- bership in the Academy a unique occurrence in the Acad- emy's history. Although his father, AIdo Leopold, was a leader of considerable prominence in the field of wildlife ecology, Starker did not seek to trade on his father's name. Earning his own achievements and honors, he yet benefitted considerably from the education he received from his father,
244 BIOGRAPHICAL MEMOIRS and both men held to the credo that "good land use is good wildlife management." Today we know that good land use is imperative for the salvation of civilization itself. Starker's wife, Elizabeth Weiskotten Leopold, and his chil- dren, Frederic S. and Sarah Leopold, survive him. Ecologists anct wildlife scientists universally and partic- ularly his fellow members of the National Academy hon- orec} Starker LeopoIcI, the kind of scientist who enhances the credibility of science. We all share in the loss of this outstand- ing colleague.
