IBA Publications

The primary scholarly publication of the IBA is Ursus.

This semi-annual series (published in May and November of each year) continues the series "Bears - their biology and management." Most of the papers in Ursus originate as presentations at IBA conferences, although papers submitted independently are also published.  All articles in Ursus are peer-reviewed.  

Go to Ursus for more details.

Other publications are also available for sale through the IBA.  See the complete list below.

Out of print volumes are available at research libraries and through inter-library loan.  Complete collections are available at the University of Montana and the University of Tennessee libraries.
