Once extirpated from the American West, wolverine populations have been on the rise, but no coordinated program has monitored their recovery. Wolverines occur at high elevations in remote areas, making it difficult for biologists to gauge where they are and how their populations are faring. In the featured article of the July issue of the Journal of Wildlife Management, the authors used remote cameras and hair snares to detect wolverines in Idaho, Montana, Washington and Wyoming to define the limits of their distribution, identify potential gaps in their distribution and provide a baseline for future monitoring. Other articles look at using detection dogs to find bird and bat mortalities at wind farms, the future of hairy-nosed wombats under climate change, elk habitat selection during Minnesota’s agriculture season and greater sage-grouse’s response to energy development.
