    Wildlife Wednesday Lecture: Brown Bear Diet
    By controlling the diet of brown bears at the Alaska Zoo, researchers are hoping to better understand how different foods are incorporated in the tissues of a bear, and how roads or other human developments might affect how bears forage for food. Matt Rogers, with UAA, discusses a collaborative research project with the Alaska Zoo that combines field studies, controlled feeding and ecological modeling to better understand the foraging ecology of Alaskan brown bears through stable isotope analysis.
