Wolverines, Indicative Of A Cool Place

In Doug Chadwick’s, The Wolverine Way, he writes that ecologists (Chadwick by training is an ecologist) call the wolverine an obligate species of snow and winter, probably more so than the better known polar bear. The wolverine, unfortunately, is a Keystone Species of a cool planet and may die out with a warming planet. Chadwick refers to warm temperatures as swimsuit temperatures for the wolverine.
