    "In the world there are probably fewer than 30 people who spend all or most of their effort working with polar bears. A veteran polar bear biologist, and the man in charge of Alaskan polar bear research for the past thirty years, Dr. Steven Amstrup has worked full time on polar bears since he joined the Polar Bear Project in   Wildlife biologist Jonathan Slaght is rightfully cartoonist talk about her work with Third Place Books. Memoirs of a Polar Bear centers three German polar bears who write books, perform at.

    To measure the energy needs of wild polar bears, a team of biologists tracked free-ranging bears on sea ice near the northern coast of Alaska during spring, the animals’ prime hunting season. On Febru , Ely researchers asked over bear biologists at the 8th International Conference on Bear Research and Management in Victoria, British Columbia, if anyone knew of a black bear ever attacking or being attracted to a menstruating woman. No one did. Polar bears.

    Dr. Steven C. Amstrup is chief scientist for Polar Bears International. He also is an adjunct professor at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. Before joining PBI, Amstrup was a research wildlife biologist with the United States Geological Survey at the Alaska Science Center, Anchorage AK., where he led polar bear research in Alaska for 30 years.   The iron-barred and cement block structure was home to the polar bear Polar from to (City of Portland, OR, Archives, A) Across a .

Like Sneed B. Collard's A Whale Biologist at Work (Watts, ), Patent's book is important not only for the basic "critter data" it contains, but also for its picture of a scientist at work in the field-a picture that may encourage readers to consider biological careers of Author: Dorothy Hinshaw Patent.

Get this from a library. A polar bear biologist at work. [Dorothy Hinshaw Patent] -- Describes the work of Charles Jonkel, a biologist who studied polar bears in the Arctic and primarily in Churchill, Manitoba.

This book describes the work of Charles Jonkel, a biologist who studied polar bears in the Arctic and primarily A polar bear biologist at work book Churchill, excellent color photographs enhance the text and help make the book a pleasure to read Discover the challanges facing scientists as they study a particular group of animals in its setting Authoritative information on the animal's.

For those of you looking for a polar bear book, I suggest you read this first. For those wishing to re-post elsewhere, I have included a short bio statement. I recently came across a review of Ian Stirling’s latest book Polar Bears: The Natural History of a Threatened Species (, Fitzhenry & Whiteside) in the March issue of the.

“Polar bears are already sitting at the top of the world; if the ice goes, they have no place to go,” lead study author and University of Toronto Scarborough biologist Péter Molnár told BBC News. But the study, published in Nature Climate Change on the 20th July,is the first to predict when and where Arctic warming will threaten the bears’ survival, The Guardian : Olivia Rosane.

This book convincingly, in clear language, and with robust science demonstrates that the polar bear population has most likely risen f to 40, in recent decades, despite big decreases in Arctic summer ice (read the book to find out why science shows that the summer ice decrease doesn’t harm polar bears).Reviews:   In Alaska’s southern Beaufort Sea population, biologists have already seen polar bear numbers drop 25 – 50 % during low ice periods when the bears have been forced to fast for too long.

Globally, the size of the polar bear population is difficult to assess, but current estimates range betw to 25, Dr. Molnar said.

Here you'll find polar bear science without advocacy, fearmongering or spin. Most importantly, there will be no predictions about the future of polar bears. My name is Susan Crockford and I am a zoologist with more than 35 years experience, including published work on.

Susan Janet Crockford (born ) is a Canadian author and blogger who writes about zoology and climate science, specializing in Holocene to she was an adjunct professor in Anthropology at the University of Victoria. She is best known for her blog posts on polar bear biology, which oppose the scientific consensus that polar bears are threatened by ongoing climate change.

Summary: This Scientist in the Field book follows scientists from The Polar Bear Research Project in their research where polar bears are captured in the field, examined, tagged and released back into the wild. Evaluation: The book is a detailed account of the work that scientists are doing with polar bears in the wild.

Through the process, scientists are able to take measurements and /5(22). Ian Grote Stirling OC FRSC (born Septem ) is a research scientist emeritus with Environment and Climate Change Canada and an adjunct professor in the University of Alberta Department of Biological Sciences.

His research has focused mostly on Arctic and Antarctic zoology and ecology, and he is one of the world's top authorities on polar bears. A video showing a polar bear spray-painted with graffiti has sparked outrage among environmentalists amid fears that the creature was targeted by locals in.

Polar bear numbers could easily exc, up from a low point of 10, or fewer in the s. In The Polar Bear Catastrophe that Never Happened, a book published today by the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), Dr.

Susan Crockford uses the latest data as well as revisiting some of the absurd values used in official estimates, and concludes that polar bears are actually thriving. Nikita is the author of more than 60 scientific articles, a scientific monograph on arctic foxes, 2 books on polar bears, and the documentary Polar Bears: Life on the Field of Bones.

In addition, he holds lectures concerning polar bears. By Susan Crockford (). Zoologist Crockford crispy tells the history of the rise and fall of polar bears as climate change icons. It is an engrossing story of a small niche group of dedicated biologists, the apex predator of the polar regions, and the American public.

Prior to that, he worked as a biologist and program manager for the U.S. Geological Survey's Polar Bear Project, the leading polar bear research team in the U.S., headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska.

Since joining PBI, Geoff has continued his interest in field-based work across the Arctic, including a focus on reducing conflict between polar.

Former firefighter Zac Unger has been in the news quite a lot over the last few months, promoting his new book, “Never Look a Polar Bear in the Eye” (see Zac’s website here, where you’ll find a list of some of the articles he’s written; the Canadian Geographic one is very good (“The truth about polar bears”) and was the one that originally caught my attention in early December   This research adds further clarity about how climate change is affecting polar bears, said Tom Smith, a biologist at Brigham Young University, who was not involved with the study.
