Historical range of Brown bear

The brown bear (Ursus arctos) is a large mammal belonging to the bear family Ursidae. It is found in various habitats across the Northern Hemisphere, including North America, Europe, and Asia. Brown bears are known for their distinctive hump on their shoulders, which is a muscle mass used for digging. They have a wide range of fur colors, including shades of brown, black, and even white.

These bears are omnivorous, with diets varying based on their location and the season. They consume a mix of plant matter, berries, insects, and, in some cases, small mammals or fish. Brown bears are solitary animals, except for mothers with cubs, and they are known for their hibernation during the winter months.

The brown bear is a bear that is found across much of northern Eurasia (Europe [Russia, Scandinavia, Caucasus, Romania, Anatolia], Central Asia, China) and North America (United States, Canada).

Notable subspecies of brown bears include the grizzly bear in North America, the Kodiak bear in Alaska, and the Eurasian brown bear in Europe and Asia. Despite their size and strength, brown bears play a crucial role in ecosystems, contributing to seed dispersal and nutrient cycling. Conservation efforts are underway to protect these iconic species and their habitats.

Brown bears were once native to much of Asia, some parts of the Atlas Mountains of Africa, and most of Europe and North America, but are now extinct in some areas and their populations have greatly decreased in other areas. Currently, the brown bear population is approximately 200 thousand individuals.

The largest populations are in Russia with 120 thousand, the U.S. with 32 thousand, Canada with around 25 thousand, and Romania with around 5 thousand.

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
