Aldo Leopold's Report on a Game Survey of the North Central States received nearly universally positive reviews. He followed it up with Game Management, a larger book detailing the history, theory, and practice of game management. Later in 1931, the Sporting Arms and Ammunitions Manufacturers' Institute “loaned” Leopold to the State of Iowa, as Iowa sought to pull together a comprehensive, twenty-five-year plan to guide its newly formed Fish and Game Commission. In December 1931, Charles Scribner's Sons agreed to publish Game Management. In one of the book's three sections entitled “Management Technique,” Leopold outlined the tools available to the game manager, from the creation of refuges to the control of habitat, hunting, and predation. With the publication of Game Management, Leopold invented the field of wildlife biology.
