North Carolina's black bears were once a threatened species, but now their numbers are rising in and around Asheville. But what happens when conservation efforts for a species are so successful that there’s a boom in the population? Can humans and bears live compatibly? What are the long-term effects for the bears? Author Amy Cherrix follows the scientists who, in cooperation with local citizen scientists, are trying to answer to these questions and more. Part field science, part conservation science,Backyard Bears looks at black bears—and other animals around the globe—who are rapidly becoming our neighbors in urban and suburban areas.

"Another inviting example of scientific field work in a consistently appealing series."--Kirkus, STARRED review

"The book capably combines the you-are-there immediacy of charting bear behaviors with surprising facts about bears (NC bears don’t do full hibernation; bear pregnancy involves “delayed implantation,” which means months between the conception and the implantation of the embryo) and illuminating information about how humans can best coexist with bears."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Booksâ??

"[An] encouraging case study of efforts to manage black bear populations."--The Horn Book Magazine

"Useful introduction to a field of scientific study that will only grow in importance."--School Library Journal
