In order to enable their coexistence with humans, new strategies are crucial to ensure their survival, such as identifying areas they could potentially inhabit, exploring their behavior, or delving into possible future changes to their environment. Some studies of brown bears in human-modified landscapes have been recently developed by a research group located in the north of Spain (Research Unit of...
