Reproductive Maturation and Senescence in the Female Brown Bear

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Changes in age-specific reproductive rates can have important implications for managing populations, but the number of female brown (grizzly) bears (Ursus arctos) observed in any one study is usually inadequate to quantify such patterns, especially for older females and in hunted areas. We examined patterns of reproductive maturation and senescence in female brown bears by combining data from 20 ... View entire text
