Record #157627:

Body size variation of brown bear in Finlamd / Ilpo Kojola, Hanna-Mari Laitala.

Title: Body size variation of brown bear in Finlamd / Ilpo Kojola, Hanna-Mari Laitala.
Author(s): Kojola, Ilpo.
Laitala, Hanna-Mari.
Date: 2001.
In: Annales Zoologici Fennici. (2001.), Vol. 38(2) (2001)
Abstract: 226 bears killed by hunters in 1996-1999 between latitudes of 60 and 68 deg.N were studied. Asymptotic body mass could not be assessed for southern males, as age and mass were almost linear. Results were that size of males decreased significantly towards north, while females showed no trend. These contradict Bergmann's rule, but brown bear sleep in winter, so are not exposed to harshest weather, and intake of omnivore may not be affected by green forage quality.
Notes:
