Population ecology

Black bear population ecology in Ontario

This project is focused on understanding what factors influence variation in black bear population density across the province of Ontario. We are using non-invasive sampling and spatial capture-recapture models to estimate black bear population density and relate variation in density to factors such as harvest, habitat fragmentation and climate.
