Habitat loss is the greatest contributor to the decline of species globally, but understanding what that looks like for imperiled species can be difficult. Resource availability can look different at different scales. In the featured article of the July issue of the Journal of Wildlife Management, the authors examine habitat selection by eastern hog-nosed snakes — a species at risk in Canada — at multiple scales, from the fields and sand barrens of their home ranges to the woody debris and vegetation coverage of their microhabitats.

Other articles look at strategies for managing wildlife harvest under system change, mule deer migration and highway underpass usage in California and demographic variation in a metapopulation of giraffes.
