This work analyzes morphogenetic variations in populations of Canada lynx, wolf, brown bear and polar bear. Clear definition of the morphometric and genetic characteristics of different populations will help elucidate their mechanisms of adaptation and evolution. The research will also help to identify evolutionary significant units, and ultimately to better understand the ecology of these species.

Principal investigator: Kamal Khidas.
