Study Predicts Decreasing Brown Bear Habitat Due to Climate Change

A recent analysis of data related to the brown bear (Ursus arctos) estimates that suitable habitat will be reduced by 11 percent across Central Asia and the Asian Highlands by 2050 due to climate change, predominantly due to the changes in temperature and precipitation. The findings are published in Ecology and Evolution.

A recent analysis of data related to the brown bear (Ursus arctos) estimates that suitable habitat will be reduced by 11 percent across Central Asia and the Asian Highlands by 2050 due to climate change, predominantly due to the changes in temperature and precipitation. The findings are published in Ecology and Evolution.

Future loss of suitable habitats inside protected areas may force brown bears to move outside these areas. Therefore, more protected areas should be established in suitable brown bear habitats, and “corridors” are needed to connect habitats between protected areas of different countries in Central Asia.

About Journal


 Ecology and Evolution is intended to be a bit different. Our overriding philosophy is to be “author friendly”. We intend to provide a forum for authors to present their evidence-based views, as long as they are not factually incorrect (or, you know, wacky). In practice, this means that we allow authors to disagree with reviewers but we expect them to acknowledge and address disagreements in the manuscript. We think this will lead to dialogues within the research community. Impact comes in many forms. We are not chasing an Impact Factor; we are looking to have research read and commented upon.
