Data from: Linking genotype, ecotype, and phenotype in an intensively managed large carnivore

Aaron B. A. Shafer, Scott E. Nielsen, Joseph M. Northrup & Gordon B. Stenhouse
Numerous factors influence fitness of free-ranging animals, yet often these are uncharacterized. We integrated GPS habitat use data and genetic profiling to determine their influence on fitness proxies (mass, length, and body condition) in a threatened population of grizzly bears (Ursus arctos) in Alberta, Canada. We detected distinct genetic and habitat use (ecotype) clusters, with individual cluster assignments, or genotype/ecotype, being correlated (Pearson r = 0.34, P < 0.01). Related individuals showed evidence of similar...
