Abstract: A systematic study of wolverine was carried out using cranial measurements from samples collected from the British Columbia mainland, Vancouver Island and Yukon Territory. Distribution of wolverine was established from trapping locations of specimens and sighting reports. Interviews with people on Vancouver Island aided in determining distribution for the Island. Correlations between cranial parameters and absolute and relative age were used to examine the effect of age on skull dimensions. No significant correlations between cranial dimensions and absolute age were evident, hence division according to age was unnecessary. For age class comparisons, several measurements distinguished juveniles from adults in pooled samples although variability was high. The value of a relatively new aging method, the enamal-line technique, was examined. Juveniles were distinguished from adults in pooled samples but the method is not recommended for aging wolverine due to high variability and difficulty in application. The va
