EFFECTS OF REDUCING BROWN BEAR DENSITY ON MOOSE CALF SURVIVAL IN SOUTHCENTRAL ALASKA
During 1979 brown bear (Ursus arctos) density within a 3,346 km2 study area in southcentral Alaska was lowered by 60% by capturing and translocating 47 bears away from the study area. The reduction resulted in a significant (P < 0.05) increase in the numbers of moose (Alces alces) calves surviving from birth to November.
