Polar Bears: Blood analyses

Blood collected from captured polar bears was analyzed for blood chemistry, hematology, stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen, free fatty-acid and amino-acid profiles, and serum hormone levels. Information on bear IDs and dates of capture is not available on account of the threatened species status of the subjects.
