Seasonal fidelity to relatively local areas and natural obstacles to movements allow the range of polar bears ( Ursus maritimus ) in Canada to be divided into 12 relatively distinct populations. These divisions are not the only ones possible, and may not be the best ones; however, they were consistent with observed movements of marked bears.
