New issue: vol 126 issue 4 - with video accompaniment!

Our latest issue has an albino snake cover, but a cougar theme with three articles on cougar behaviour, distribution, and parasites.  Coyotes, red fox, fishers, and hares are also featured animals, along with purple loosestrife representing plants, and a sleuthing study of historic reddish egret collections in Nova Scotia.

This issue marks our first issue with a video supplement!  Mark Elbroch and Howard Quigley published an article with the word "kittens" in the title, but the video is not cute and cuddly.  The article and video show how cougar kittens may look big and strong, but their inexperience at killing prey seems to inhibit their hunting ability.  The video is embedded on our journal's website, associated with the article.  We look forward to publishing more articles with video supplements in the future.
