New issue: vol 128 issue 1 (on time!)

We published our Jan-March 2014 issue IN JAN-MARCH 2014!!!  It's like we're in a time portal ... but the opposite ... so I guess it's like we're living in real time.  Trippy.

This issue has great breadth of topics and taxa, including:
-Illustrated key to small mammals' jaws (great for figuring out diet from predators' scat)
-Varied (and beautiful) pigmentation patterns among Nova Scotia's Maritime Gartersnakes (see our cover photo below)
-A tropical moth in northern Manitoba
-Eggshell thickness in the context of natural history for Common Murres
-Tough-as-nails lynx crossing frigid glacial rivers, repeatedly
