Black bear habitat management guidelines for Florida Book 1 edition published in in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide The fragmented and patchy arrangement of black bear Ursus americanus floridanus populations throughout Florida is a daunting management challenge in this developed state. Successful management prescriptions must consider highly variable food habits as well as the effects of fire, timber management, and expanding development on this threatened species.
Saw palmetto Serenoa repens appears to be the single-most important food that is also common in all of the species' subpopulations.
Fire may be the most important abiotic influence on bear nutrition, reproduction, and mortality. Winter burns have the potential to alter the fruiting phenology of important food plants and can cause direct mortality on neonatal cubs.
Highways are problematic because they isolate bear populations, create travel barriers, and cause direct mortality. Opportunities for secure den sites and escape cover are likely more numerous in large patches of older forests.
The limited use of hollow trees as den sites in Florida is likely linked to the relatively young age of most of Florida's forests. Noss , and Jeffery L. Larkin ; Foreword by Melvin E.

Evidence is mounting that top carnivores and other large mammals play a pivotal role in regulating ecosystem health and function, yet those are the species that are most likely to have been eliminated by past human activities. In recent decades, numerous efforts have been undertaken to return some of the species that were previously extirpated on local or regional scales. Large Mammal Restoration brings together for the first time detailed case studies of those efforts, from restoring elk in Appalachia to returning bison herds to the Great Plains to the much-publicized effort to bring back the gray wolf to Yellowstone National Park.
Together these case studies offer important lessons and new ways of thinking for wildlife managers and conservation biologists involved with restoration programs.
