COVER PHOTO: Wolves and coyotes, such as the eastern wolf (Canis lycaon) pups pictured here in Ontario, Canada, give birth and begin raising off spring in dens that are critical to successful reproduction. Oliveira et al. (Ecosphere, Volume 11, Issue 12, Article e03320; doi: https://doi.org.10.1002/ecs2.3320) modeled resource selection by wolves, coyotes, and admixed canids at dens and other pup-rearing sites in a hybrid zone where canids were legally shot and trapped by humans. The authors found that wolves and coyotes exhibited different patterns of resource selection, but that all canids strongly avoided roads, presumably to reduce human-caused mortality. Importantly, pups survived better in packs that selected habitat types associated with abundant prey. Photo credit: John Benson.
