Record #180408:

The effects of forest fires on polar bear maternity denning habitat in western Hudson Bay / E. Richardson, I. Stirling, B. Kochtubajda.

Title: The effects of forest fires on polar bear maternity denning habitat in western Hudson Bay / E. Richardson, I. Stirling, B. Kochtubajda.
Author(s): Richardson, E.
Stirling, I.
Kochtubajda, B.
Date: 2007.
In: Polar Biology. (2007.), Vol. 30(3) (2007)
Abstract: Examines effects of forest fires on polar bear (Ursus maritimus) maternity denning habitat by comparing characteristics of 48 burned and 101 unburned maternity den sites from September 2001-October 2003. Fire significantly alters vegetation composition and increases depth of active layer, resulting in decrease in stability of den sites, collapses of dens, and degradation of surrounding habitat.
