Sean is studying the nutritional ecology of grizzly bears in the Hinton area with a focus on understanding and predicting the spatial and temporal patterns in total available energy, the importance of a mixed carbohydrate and protein diet, and finally how these patterns shape differences in body mass/condition among bears. This research is part of the Foothills Research Institute's Grizzly Bear Project.
