Abstract

We reply to the critique from Fernández-Gil et al. (2010) regarding our study on trends in female brown bears with cubs (FCUB) in the Cantabrian Mountains, Spain (Palomero et al. 2007). We discuss the relationship between sampling effort and the number of FCUB, the methods used to collect the data, and the relationship between the FCUB and the whole bear population.
