Dispersal rates, timing, and distances of Pennsylvania black bears
July 2008 - June 2011
- Pennsylvania Game Commission
This project was developed to document dispersal timing, rates and distances for juvenile black bears from tagging and recovery information gathered in Pennsylvania from 1980-2008. Data have been gathered by the Pennsylvania Game Commission with bears being marked using individually numbered ear tags. Bears tagged as cubs or yearlings <15 months of age will be used for analysis and >1400 individual bears have been identified.
