I vecka 8 har vi fångat fem ungbjörnar i sina iden, för att ta blodprover till vårt samarbetsprojekt med Örebro Universitetssjukhus om fysiologin hos vintersovande björnar (se tidigare nyheter). Två 2-åriga björnar som är kullsyskon låg i samma idet – det är väldigt ovanligt. Deras mamma hade blivit skjuten förra hösten under björnjakten. Idesmärkningen gick bra och under midsommarveckan ska dessa björnar sövas åter en gång för att jämföra blodproverna.
This week we have been capturing subadult bears in their dens, to collect blood samples for our collaborative hibernation/physiology study (collaboration with Örebro University Hospital, see earlier news). With us on the captures was a reporting team from SVT’s program “Vetenskapens Värld” (“The World of Science, roughly translated). You can find more information on SVT’s website (in Swedish).

During spring of 2009 we started collaboration with doctors from Örebro University Hospital (link here). The initial results, which have recently been published (link to pdf here) were very interesting, and based on these it was decided that the collaboration should continue.
In February 2010 we carried out captures and blood sampling of seven subadult bears, while they were still in the den. ON June 21st and 22nd all of these seven bears were recaptured in order to do a follow-up of the blood samples taken in February. Everything looks good and now we are awaiting the results with great anticipation!
After a longer wait than intended, Jodie’s thesis is now available here.
