All wildlife professionals want to write that killer paper that uses iron-clad data to make a novel point that spans field and schools of thought. When this happens, the ACTWS steps up and acknowledges this achievement.
Anne Loosen, with her co-authors Andrea Morehouse and Mark Boyce has done this. Her paper, “Land tenure shapes black bear density and abundance on a multi-use landscape” published in the journal Ecology and Evolution shows how landscapes drive black bear density and abundance. Soon to be a classic.
