Harris (1990) found that many mammals now occurring in the southern Rocky Mountains ranged south into the Chihuahuan desert in the late Wisconsin. The present ranges of many taxa were probably reached in the early Holocene epoch, but some survived in refugia until the late Holocene (Elias 1992). Ecological Compromises Patterns of migration and seasonal changes in habitat use have ramifications for our attempts to determine why animals occupy the areas they do and complicate our attempts to predict the response of animals to environmental changes.

Similar shifts in thinking motivated this third edition. However, our ideas about dealing with changes in the world remain the same. We hope that, no matter what changes occur, our readers—current or future conservationists in the broadest sense— remain tied to an ecological land ethic and continue the pursuit of providing vital, productive habitats for wildlife and humans alike.
