Polar Bears: Body temperature
A subset of captured polar bears was surgically implanted with subcutaneous temperature loggers in the rump, or in the abdominal cavity. Subcutaneous loggers recorded temperature every 10 minutes. Abdominal loggers recorded temperature every 60 minutes. Information on bear IDs and dates of capture is not available because of the threatened species status of the subjects.
