Using non-invasive techniques to examine black bear (Ursus americanus) abundance in the North Cascades Ecosystem, Washington State
Recent advances in non-invasive research methods have facilitated less costly evaluations of bear populations across wide geographic ranges. Non-invasive hair-snagging and genetic tagging allow identification of species, sex, and individual bears without necessitating direct capture or observation. From 2008 to 2011 a large, ...
