Wolverines often inhabit remote areas in North America, with low population densities and vast home ranges. That can make it difficult for biologists to get a good understanding of the size of their populations and whether they are increasing or decreasing. In the featured issue of the July issue of the Journal of Wildlife Management, researchers estimated wolverine density across two boreal forest study areas in Red Lake, Ontario, and Rainbow Lake, Alberta.

Other articles look at eastern pinesnake conservation, barn owl nest occupancy, disease in desert bighorn sheep, fencing out wild pigs, and more.
