New issue published: vol 125 issue 4

We just published the latest issue of The Canadian Field-Naturalist.  Vol 125 issue 4 is the final issue of our 2011 volume, and we're getting set to publish our first issue of our 2012 volume shortly.  It feels great to be catching up our publication lag; big thanks to former and current Editors-in-Chief Francis Cook and Carolyn Callaghan, respectively, for their work catching us up.  The issue just published has lots of great research, book reviews, and a couple of tributes.  Owls, bees, invasive plants, wolves, and a note and cover photo featuring the eeriest salamanders you've ever seen.
