We determined the relationships between Grizzly Bear density and ultimate measures of ecosystem productivity and mortality at a landscape scale using multiple linear regression and field based density estimates from Grizzly Bear populations across western North America. We found that Grizzly Bear densities in non-coastal environments were positively related to the mean annual rainfall, to the presence of salmon, and to the proportion of the population's perimeter that was contiguous with other… CONTINUE READING
