These proceedings provide an overview of the ongoing research and management activities on polar bears in the circumpolar Arctic. They address more recent concerns of threats arising as a consequence of increased human activities in both the Arctic and in regions far beyond the Arctic. They also provide a more comprehensive assessment of all threats to the status of each polar bear subpopulation.
