New issue published: vol 126 issue 3

We have published a new issue!  Actually we published it a couple of weeks ago, but I was busy finishing my PhD thesis revisions (my PhD is finally over), so this blog post had to wait on a back burner temporarily.  I apologize for the delay.

Volume 126 issue 3 covers a variety of taxa, regions, and topics, as you've come to expect from CFN.  Predictors of snake roadkill? Check.  Caribou crossing sea ice? Check.  Plus some of the most bad-ass animals are featured in all their bad-ass glory: badgers, fishers, wolves, and lamprey.  And orchids and willows, which I will also call bad-ass just so my botanist friends do not flog me with poison ivy.  Enjoy the issue!
