Record #188034:

Estimating the energetic contribution of polar bear (Ursus maritimus) summer diets to the total energy budget / Markus G. Dyck, Ermias Kebreab.

Title: Estimating the energetic contribution of polar bear (Ursus maritimus) summer diets to the total energy budget / Markus G. Dyck, Ermias Kebreab.
Author(s): Dyck, Markus G.
Kebreab, Ermias.
Date: 2009.
In: Journal of Mammalogy. (2009.), Vol. 90(3) (2009)
Abstract: Examines whether observed summer diet (Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus), ringed seal (Pusa hispida) blubber, and berries) can contribute sufficient energy to offset daily body mass loss. Analysis indicates that it is possible for bears to maintain body mass while on shore by feeding on Arctic charr and seal blubber. Bears of body mass up to 280 kg could gain sufficient energy from blueberries to match daily energy loss.
