This issue represents the final one in volume 76 of Journal of Wildlife Management. As this one is pretty much in the books, one cannot help but wonder what the future holds for the journal. Lenny Brennan is putting together a piece for Wildlife Society Bulletin to examine how The Wildlife Society publications have changed through time. He solicited input from past and present Editor-In-Chiefs, including me. In my contribution, I contrasted topics of papers published in volume 31 of the journal (1967) with those published in volume 75 (2011). Over this span of nearly 35 years, papers transitioned from a primary focus on game species to focus on a broader array of species, most of which were nongame. Details on the analysis are in the Bulletin. Surely many factors - social, economic, political, scientific - underlie this shift in focus. I will not even try to explain here how this change happened, but invite somebody so inclined to develop a paper on the topic. I would gladly consider including it in the Journal.
