Was the study peer-reviewed?

Both the USGS and the journal, Wildlife Society Bulletin, require independent scientific review for every publication. In the USGS, peer reviewers are selected from experts with no close professional ties to the authors. Standards for journal articles such as this paper require one internal review, while journal editors typically solicit two or more independent reviews. After receiving the internal and journal reviews, the USGS author must provide a detailed response that explicitly states how comments from each reviewer were addressed. For this paper, the authors additionally solicited reviews from four additional subject-matter experts prior to the internal and journal reviews.
