Designing scientifically-grounded paleoart for augmented reality at La Brea Tar Pits

Paleoart is an important medium that communicates scientific understanding about prehistoric life to both the public and researchers. However, despite its broad influence, the scientific and



Body size and metabolism

In spite of the theoretical weakness of the surface law, the computation of basal metabolism to the unit of the body surface seems at present the most satisfactory method available of equalizing experimental results for differences in the size of experimental animals.

Denning of Brown Bears in Croatia

Twenty-eight dens of 15 different European brown bears (Ursus arctos) were located, monitored and measured during 1981-92. Ten of them were used by females with cubs, 9 by single females, 5 by males,

Giant Short-faced Bears (Arctodus simus) in Pleistocene Florida USA, a Substantial Range Extension

Abstract Fossils of the giant short-faced bear, Arctodus simus (Cope, 1879), have been recovered from over 100 localities in North America, extending from Mexico to Alaska and California to Virginia.

Extinction chronology and palaeobiology of the cave bear (Ursus spelaeus)

The cave bear (Ursus spelaeus) was one of several spectacular megafaunal species that became extinct in northern Eurasia during the late Quaternary. Vast numbers of their remains have been recovered

Body Size and Blood Characteristics as Indicators of Condition and Reproductive Performance in Black Bears

Examination of relationships between reproductive performance of female Minnesota black bears and various potential indicators of nutritional condition during late hibernation found litter size was influenced more by litter order than by maternal condition, and weight and growth of cubs and yearlings were closely related to mother's ize.
