Polar Bears: Morphological measurements and body condition at capture

Summary

This dataset contains measurements of individual polar bears using rope, calipers and measuring tape. Weight was determined using a tripod hoist. A visual assessment of body condition was also recorded on a scale of 1-5. Information on bear IDs and dates of capture is not available because of the threatened species status of the subjects.
