Journals and Publications
Black bears (Ursus americanus) often forage in dumpsters but in the early to mid-20th century, bears in Yosemite National Park were fed deliberately, mainly to promote tourism. In the March issue of Frontiers, Hopkins et al. use isotopic analysis of historical and modern tissues to show how black bear diets have changed in Yosemite over the past 100 years.
