Record #180278:

Observations of mortality associated with extended open-water swimming by polar bears in the Alaskan Beaufort Sea / Charles Monnett, Jeffrey S. Gleason.

Title: Observations of mortality associated with extended open-water swimming by polar bears in the Alaskan Beaufort Sea / Charles Monnett, Jeffrey S. Gleason.
Author(s): Monnett, Charles.
Gleason, Jeffrey S.
Date: 2006.
In: Polar Biology. (2006.), Vol. 29(8) (2006)
Abstract: Compares aerial surveys of polar bears (Ursus maritimus) during 1978-2003, with surveys in early 2004. Notes appearance of four polar bear carcasses in open water in later survey. Speculates that bears have drowned and that mortalities owing to off-shore swimming during late-ice years may be important and unaccounted source of natural mortality, given energetic demands placed on individual bears engaged in long-distance swimming.
