Abstract

This article examines oil and gas infrastructure and the spatial pattern of grizzly bear habitat selection in the Kakwa region of Alberta, Canada. The results indicate that bears are generally observed closer to oil and gas features during spring. Adult males are farther than expected to all features during the summer season. During fall, adult females show avoidance of all oil and gas features during the day, but were closer at night. Active well sites are avoided by all bears in the fall, and roads are avoided more than pipelines. Spatial analysis and geographic information science are ideal tools for examining the influence of landscape features on wildlife
