Give students a brilliantly enlightening example of how polar bear scientists research their animals, what tools they use, where they go, and about the behavior and long-range changes they're so interested in. Learn about how polar bear studies can not only teach us about how individual polar bears are faring, but also about how conditions in the arctic are affecting them. Scientists Dr. Steven Amstrup, Dr. George Durner, field biology Kristin Simac, and "helo" operator Joe Fieldman have the exciting job of "chasing" polar bears to tag them, take samples, and analyze their data in order to uncover patterns; discover how their important work directly led to placing polar bears on the endangered species list, and how people can help them to stable levels once more. 80 pages, indexed, hardcover with dust jacket.
