Geographic distribution bears in North America

Bears are carnivoran mammals of the family Ursidae. Only eight species of bears are living on our planet. But they are widespread in the Northern Hemisphere and partially in the Southern Hemisphere.

Geographic distribution bears in North America

There are three species of bears inhabit North America. The most regular is the American black bear (Ursus americanus). It can be observed in all provinces and territories in Canada except Prince Edward Island and 40 of the 50 states of the USA. There are about 900 000 black bears lives in North America.

The grizzly or brown bear (Ursus arctos), lives in British Columbia, Alberta, the Yukon and Northwest territories as well as in the states of Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho. In North America, approximately 57 000 bears live.

Due to low human activity in its remote Arctic ecosystems, the polar bear (Ursus maritimus) conserves more of its original region than any other persisting large carnivore. About 25 000 polar bears live in the northern areas of Canada, American Alaska, Russia, Greenland and Norway.

Brown bear was previously distributed almost throughout North America.

Presently only approximately 1 500 brown bears are left in the lower 48 states of the United States. Of these, about 800 live in Montana. About 600 more live in Wyoming, in the Yellowstone-Teton area. There are an estimated 70–100 grizzly bears living in northern and eastern Idaho.

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
