I recommend you read some of the book reviews, including Roy John's assessment of the latest field guide to birds of North America.
I'll write another post soon highlighting a research article or two in this new issue. There are plenty of good ones to browse through, from a review of conservation threats to mammals in Canada, to the use of remote camera traps to photograph animals in Ontario, and of course the note associated with our front cover's enticing photo: white-nose syndrome in bats (and how raccoons eating dead bats can lead to underestimates of bat mortality).
