Here you’ll find polar bear science without advocacy, fearmongering or spin. Most importantly, there will be no predictions about the future of polar bears!
I am a zoologist with more than 35 years experience, including published work on the Holocene history of Arctic animals. I am currently an adjunct professor at the University of Victoria, British Columbia.
Like Ian Stirling, grand-daddy of all polar bear biologists, I earned my undergraduate degree in zoology at the University of British Columbia. Polar bear evolution is one of my professional interests, which I discuss in my 2006 book, Rhythms of Life: Thyroid Hormone and the Origin of Species, which is based on my Ph.D. dissertation earned in 2004 at the University of Victoria, B.C. Canada (see www.rhythmsoflife.ca).
And as polar Ian Stirling states in the introduction to his new book, the opinions expressed here are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of any of the agencies that have supported my research or the University of Victoria.
