  • Abstract Delineating a species' geographic range using the spatial distribution of museum specimens or even contemporary detection–non-detection data can be difficult. This is particularly true at the periphery of a species range where species' distributions are often disjunct. Wolverines (Gulo gulo) are wide-ranging mammals with discontinuous and potentially isolated populations at the periphery of their range. One potentially disjunct population occurred in the Sierra Nevada Mountains… CONTINUE READING
