Cover illustration. Collared pika (Ochotona collaris) is caught mid-leap on a foraging bout by wildlife photographer Moose Peterson. In this issue of the Journal of Morphology Reese, Lanier, and Sargis study whether postcranial features related to burrowing are present in meadow-dwelling species and whether talus-dwelling species (like the one on the cover) exhibit postcranial modifications related to frequent leaping between rocks (pages 585–602).
