In brown bears, males and females behave differently. While males move away from their natal home once they become adults, females continue to stay close to their mothers. This webinar will give a short introduction into the sex-specific differences in brown bears and will then explain how these differences may influence a whole bear population. I will also give an introduction to how we consider these sex-specific differences in scientific research, specifically population and conservation genetic research including a short overview about the results from my own studies in the Scandinavian brown bear population. I will end with a short consideration of what these results may mean for brown bear management.
