Link to the article "The Canadian Field-Naturalist" Characteristics of Wolverine dens in the lowland boreal forest of north-central Alberta.

“Our study detected a wolverine denning strategy that is largely undescribed. We documented wolverine dens in low elevation forests lacking boulders and deep or persistent spring snow, where a core, resident population has supported wolverine harvests for over 30 years.”– text from above paper
