Hi Ed,
Interesting... as a 4th year biology student I understand the reasons for taking specimens like this, but I wonder if a case like this might question the validity of it. That is, the taking of a number of animals from a small population in a small and delicate ecosysetem - possibly (reaching a bit) contributing to thier extinction.

Of course, if the team had arrived one year later (after the clearcut), perhaps this species would never be known to science at all...
