(Heffelfinger, Nowak, Paetkau, 2017). The species once coexisted with Native Americans, then with small Spanish populations until Anglo settlers from the United States began to migrate into the region after the Mexican-American War.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
