This report provides a narrative summary of the biological and social factors that seem most clearly to relate to the subject of a wolverine management strategy for British Columbia. It is primarily a literature review based on 180 references. The general approach in this review is to proceed systematically through a list of subject headings and keywords generated in the bibliography (Part 3) and to briefly discuss each in terms of its known or potential relevance to management. To provide an overall perspective, initial sections characterize the body of literature available and describe the history and status of wolverine management and research in British Columbia. The operative term is management - the collective actions both by trappers and by professional wildlife and habitat managers to sustain and/or enhance populations of the species.
