Grizzly bears are not travelling between the southern Selkirk Mountains and adjacent populations, rendering this 70-100 bear population as genetically isolated.
Grizzly bears and black bears sharing the mountains and forests of British Columbia's upper Columbia river basin keep to different types of vegetation and terrain.
The greater proportion of salmon in a grizzly bear's diet, the bigger the bear grows.
Salmon escapement at Owikeno Lake dropped too low, during a five year study, to sustain the watershed's grizzly bear population.
The types of habitat that grizzly bears frequent depends upon the scale measured.
Scientists have linked a recent twenty percent decline in the number of polar bears living near the southern edge of their range to the earlier breakup of sea ice in spring.
The Arctic's warming climate has prompted Alaskan polar bears to avoid using pack ice for maternal winter dens.
As dwindling sea ice makes it harder for polar bears to hunt seals, the carcasses of bowhead whales left over from traditional Inupiat harvests may help sustain the endangered predators.
