A. Starker Leopold, the oldest son of famed ecologist Aldo Leopold, was a conservationist, naturalist, wildlife biologist and educator. Like his brothers and sisters, he followed in his father’s footsteps as an advocate for conservation.

Starker may be best known for the Leopold Report, a series of recommendations he produced with colleagues on ecosystem management that were presented in 1963 to the Secretary of the Interior, outlining the steps needed for managing national park visitors while also protecting natural resources. The recommendations proved to be a landmark publication for the National Park Service.
