    This collection of 22 papers summarizes the current state of knowledge on Northern Goshawks (Accipiter gentilis) within the scientific and management communities. The proceedings are presented in three sections. Research Approaches and Management Concepts contains overviews of research and management for goshawks, forest management to provide goshawk habitat, and field techniques. Resource Ecology focuses largely on habitat use at spatial scales ranging from landscapes to microhabitats. Also included are food habits papers. The section on Population Ecology includes papers on reproductive rates, survival rates, turnover, and numerical responses of goshawks to prey abundance. Our intent is for these proceedings to serve as a springboard from which researchers will critically evaluate their work and that of others, and provide direction for future research.
