Continuing a tradition of 70 years, the Western North American Naturalist offers meaningful insights, timely data, and useful research aids to those studying the fascinating and complex field of biological natural history. The geographic coverage of Western North American Naturalist, from northernmost Canada and Alaska to southern Mexico, and from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean, encompasses land of incomparable diversity: hot deserts and cold deserts, lush valleys, towering mountains, rivers and streams, sandy beaches, frozen tundra, windswept ridges, alkali flats, tranquil forests, and seemingly endless space. Over the years the journal, including its predecessor The Great Basin Naturalist, has firmly established itself as a forum for reporting peer-reviewed research, both descriptive and analytical, on natural history topics. Our goal is not only to continue but to expand this publishing tradition. The Western North American Naturalist places neither restriction nor preference on manuscripts within the disciplines of the biological sciences. Ideally, each issue of the journal will feature articles, notes, and book reviews covering diverse topics: plants, vertebrates, invertebrates, insects, ecology, and genetics, for example. The Western North American Naturalist is published quarterly by the Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum at Brigham Young University.
