• Chewing lice Trichodectes pinguis pinguis in Scandinavian brown bears (Ursus arctos) 

      Esteruelas, Nuria Fandos; Malmsten, Jonas; Bröjer, Caroline; Grandi, Giulio; Lindström, Anders; Brown, Paul; Swenson, Jon; Evans, Alina; Arnemo, Jon Martin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      In April 2014 and 2015, we noted localized alopecia (neck, forelimbs, and chest) and hyperpigmentation on two adult brown bears (Ursus arctos) captured in central-south Sweden for ecological studies under the Scandinavian ...
    • Drivers of hibernation in the brown bear 

      Evans, Alina; Singh, Navinder J.; Friebe, Andrea; Arnemo, Jon Martin; Laske, Timothy; Fröbert, O.; Swenson, Jon; Blanc, S (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Background: Hibernation has been a key area of research for several decades, essentially in small mammals in the laboratory, yet we know very little about what triggers or ends it in the wild. Do climatic factors, an ...

    • Leukocyte coping capacity as a tool to assess capture- and handling-induced stress in Scandinavian brown bears (Ursus arctos) 

      Esteruelas, Nuria Fandos; Huber, Nikolaus; Evans, Alina; Zedrosser, Andreas; Cattet, Marc; Palomares, Francisco; Angel, Martine; Swenson, Jon; Arnemo, Jon Martin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Brown bears (Ursus arctos) are often captured and handled for research and management purposes. Although the techniques used are potentially stressful for the animals and might have detrimental and long-lasting consequences, ...
    • Movement and heart rate in the Scandinavian brown bear (Ursus arctos) 

      Blanchet, Leslie; Fuchs, Boris; Støen, Ole-Gunnar; Ordiz, Andre; Laske, Timothy G.; Arnemo, Jon Martin; Evans, Alina (Journal article, 2019)
      Background: Understanding animal movement facilitates better management and conservation. The link between movement and physiology holds clues to the basic drivers of animal behaviours. In bears, heart rate increases with ...
