Hello MARMAM community:

I am looking for information related to polar bear (Ursus maritimus) diving physiology; specifically information, data, and literature having to do with breathhold ability, duration submerged, and lengths of time swimming/diving.

I have already found the following papers:
-Stirling and van Meurs 2015 "Longest recorded underwater dive by a polar bear"
-Lone et al. 2018 "Aquatic behaviour of polar bears (Ursus maritimus) in an increasingly ice-free Arctic"

Any other information, unpublished work, or information would be welcome! Please email kelsey_potlock at fws.gov if you are able to assist!


Thank you,
