Some species can likely avoid some of the greatest impacts of climate change by dispersing into areas where can better survive. Reptiles and amphibians, however, have less ability to move out, raising concerns for how well North American desert dwellers will be able to survive changing climate conditions. In the January issue of the Journal of Wildlife Management, researchers studied 23 desert reptiles and amphibians and found that even in the most optimistic scenario, 24% of their habitat would be lost.

Other articles look at vital rates of fishers in British Columbia, Piping plover chick ecology following landscape‐level disturbance, urban coyote den selection and more.
