I wanted to create a thread whereby from time to time I can directly communicate/update forum members. Sometimes there are extended or decreased periods of forum inactivity from me. Like many, our personal lives can keep us busy. I am no exception. Regrettably, at least for the immediate future, my schedule remains busy but I will try harder to be more active. One consequence of a busy schedule is that many forum related tasks including follow up posts are neglected but they are not ignored. Some posts require a deeper review of the literature for adequate reply. This is also true for certain threads and topics which remain incomplete. Through it all the scholarly efforts of certain forum members are greatly/always appreciated. On my end, even during periods of low forum activity the collection/processing of the professional literature continues (trust me when I tell you, the literature inventory is of large proportions [foreign, morphometric, etc - think of a kid at a candy store] of which A LOT has not been shared). All of these efforts are made on your behalf. There is no monopoly on information to bears. Let me be clear: forum members, this is YOUR forum for scholarly examination and support of everything relating to bears. My goal for this forum is that it is place where answers relating to bears are found to the best of all of our abilities. I can not heap enough praise for the scholarly efforts made and thus so I felt I owed it to all of you to write this post/update. Thank you.
