Complexities tackled

Document Actions

The Alaska predator control issue was an excellent one (HCN, 2/21/11). It offered information that I likely wouldn't come across in the newspapers or journals I read -- about the possible relationship between increasing salmon runs and declining ungulate populations, for example. It tackled complex matters in a way this non-wildlife biologist could grasp. And it included points of view that ran against the grain for me, but which now have me rethinking some of my own assumptions and opinions.
