To understand the population dynamics of large mammals, biologists need to understand adult survival rates. In a study in the January edition of the Journal of Wildlife Management, researchers used date from seven separate studies to quantify how a variety of factors, including weather conditions associated with climate change, are affecting mountain goat survival in Washington state.
