• A "clearcut" case? Brown bear selection of coarse woody debris and carpenter ants on clearcuts 

      Frank, Shane C.; Steyaert, Sam; Swenson, Jon; Storch, Ilse; Kindberg, Jonas; Barck, Hanna; Zedrosser, Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-07-05)
      Forest management alters habitat characteristics, resulting in various effects among and within species. It is crucial to understand how habitat alteration through forest management (e.g. clearcutting) affects animal ...
    • Bears and berries: species-specific selective foraging on a patchily distributed food resource in a human-altered landscape 

      Hertel, Anne Gabriela; Steyaert, Sam; Zedrosser, Andreas; Mysterud, Atle; Lodberg-Holm, Hanna Kavli; Gelink, Henriette Wathne; Kindberg, Jonas; Swenson, Jon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      When animals are faced with extraordinary energyconsuming events, like hibernation, finding abundant, energy-rich food resources becomes particularly important. The profitability of food resources can vary spatially, ...
    • Behavioral correlates of supplementary feeding of wildlife: Can general conclusions be drawn? 

      Steyaert, Sam; Kindberg, Jonas; Jerina, Klemen; Krofel, Miha; Stergar, Matija; Swenson, Jon; Zedrosser, Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014-10-12)
      Supplementary feeding is a common, but controversial, tool in wildlife management, because it can benefit both humans and wildlife (e.g., increased wildlife densities), but has certain downsides (e.g., increased disease ...
    • Berry production drives bottom – up effects on body mass and reproductive success in an omnivore 

      Hertel, Anne Gabriela; Bischof, Richard; Langval, Ola; Mysterud, Atle; Kindberg, Jonas; Swenson, Jon; Zedrosser, Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Obligate herbivores dominate studies of the eff ects of climate change on mammals, however there is limited empirical evidence for how changes in the abundance or quality of plant food aff ect mammalian omnivores. Omnivores ...
    • Caught in the mesh : roads and their network-scale impediment to animal movement 

      Bischof, Richard; Steyaert, Sam; Kindberg, Jonas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Roads have a pervasive multi-faceted influence on ecosystems, including pronounced impacts on wildlife movements. In recognition of the scale-transcending impacts of transportation infrastructure, ecologists have been ...
    • Challenges of managing a European brown bear population; lessons from Sweden, 1943–2013 

      Swenson, Jon; Schneider, Michael; Zedrosser, Andreas; Söderberg, Arne; Franzén, Robert; Kindberg, Jonas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Adaptive management’, which has been defined as the repeated iteration between management action, scientific assessment and revised management action, leading to a strengthened foundation for management, is required by ...
    • Does despotic behavior or food search explain the occurrence of problem brown bears in Europe? 

      Elfström, Marcus; Zedrosser, Andreas; Jerina, Klemen; Støen, Ole-Gunnar; Kindberg, Jonas; Budic, Lara; Jonozovic, Marko; Swenson, Jon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Bears foraging near human developments are often presumed to be responding to food shortage, but this explanation ignores social factors, in particular despotism in bears. We analyzed the age distribution and body condition ...
    • Ecological implications from spatial patterns in human-caused brown bear mortality 

      Steyaert, Sam; Zedrosser, Andreas; Elfström, Marcus; Ordiz Fernandez, Andres Avelino; Leclerc, Martin; Frank, Shane C.; Kindberg, Jonas; Støen, Ole-Gunnar; Brunberg, Sven; Swenson, Jon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Humans are important agents of wildlife mortality, and understanding such mortality is paramount for effective population management and conservation. However, the spatial mechanisms behind wildlife mortality are often ...
    • Sociodemographic factors modulate the spatial response of brown bears to vacancies created by hunting 

      Frank, Shane C.; Leclerc, Martin; Pelletier, Fanie; Rosell, Frank; Swenson, Jon; Bischof, Richard; Kindberg, Jonas; Eiken, Hans Geir; Hagen, Snorre; Zedrosser, Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      1. There is a growing recognition of the importance of indirect effects from hunting on wildlife populations, e.g. social and behavioural changes due to harvest, which occur after the initial offtake. Nonetheless, little ...
