Abstract

The 50th anniversary of the publication of Paul Errington's Of Men and Marshes will occur in 2007. Using “landscape” in a figurative as well as a physical sense, we examine Errington's life in wildlife science as well as the places where he conducted his research. While Errington's scientific work on predation has received acclaim, we argue his research also contributed to fundamental changes in cultural and popular views of wetlands. Similar to Aldo Leopold, Errington's writings transcended science and ethics as he wrote about the intrinsic values of marshes. Errington's attempts to translate his scientific experience for a wider audience ultimately contributed to public understanding of the importance of restoring wetlands. As we reflect on the public roles of wildlife professionals, Paul Errington's work provides a visible road map to follow.
