Summary

Fragmentation is a growing threat to wildlife worldwide and managers need solutions to reverseits impacts on species’ populations. Populations of grizzly bears (Ursus arctos), often considered an umbrellaand focal species for largemammal conservation, are fragmented by human settlement and major highways inthe trans-border region of southern British Columbia, northern Montana, Idaho, and northeasternWashington. To improve prospects for bear movement among 5 small fragmented grizzly bearsubpopulations, we asked 2 inter-related questions: Are there preferred linkage habitats for grizzly bearsacross settled valleys with major highways in the fragmented trans-border region, and if so, could we predictthem using a combination of resource [...]
