Geographic distribution of American black bears in North America
Abstract American black bears (Ursus americanus) historically inhabited every province and territory in Canada, all continental states in the United States (U.S.), and northern states of Mexico. WeExpand

Consequences of severe habitat fragmentation on density, genetics, and spatial capture-recapture analysis of a small bear population
Loss and fragmentation of natural habitats caused by human land uses have subdivided several formerly contiguous large carnivore populations into multiple small and often isolated subpopulations,Expand

DETERMINING THE POTENTIAL MITIGATION EFFECTS OF WILDLIFE PASSAGEWAYS ON BLACK BEARS
North Carolina’s U.S. Highway 64 is currently being expanded from a two-lane road to a four-lane divided highway from Raleigh to the Outer Banks. Concerns exist that collisions with vehicles mayExpand

Spatially explicit population estimates for black bears based on cluster sampling
We estimated abundance and density of the 5 major black bear (Ursus americanus) subpopulations (i.e., Eglin, Apalachicola, Osceola, Ocala-St. Johns, Big Cypress) in Florida, USA with spatiallyExpand

Incorporating movement patterns to discern habitat selection: black bears as a case study
Context Animals’ use of space and habitat selection emerges from their movement patterns, which are, in turn, determined by their behavioural or physiological states and extrinsic factors. Aim TheExpand

Microhabitat features influencing habitat use by Florida black bears
Abstract Understanding fine-scale habitat needs of species and the factors influencing heterogeneous use of habitat within home range would help identify limiting resources and inform habitatExpand

Multiscale consensus habitat modeling for landscape level conservation prioritization
Globally, wide-ranging carnivore populations are imperiled due to human-caused habitat fragmentation. Where populations are fragmented, habitat quantification is often the first step in conservation.Expand
