    In this issue, I feature an invited paper by Michael Morrison titled ''The Habitat Sampling and Analysis Paradigm has Limited Value in Animal Conservation: a Prequel.'' As many of you know, Dr. Morrison was a former Editor-in-Chief for Journal of Wildlife Management and established himself as one of the leaders in the field of wildlife-habitat ecology. Here, he takes an introspective look at the many wildlife-habitat relations studies he/we have done in the past and questions how much progress we gained by them. Indeed, science is a process whereby we evolve our approaches and foci. That evolution cannot move forward without critically evaluating the past and proposing where to go in the future. Publishing this article does not imply that I wholeheartedly agree with his thesis. I promote, however, the need for our science to move forward and Dr. Morrison provides food for thought.
