Asiatic black bear’s conservation

The Iranian black bear (Ursus thibetanus gedrosianus) suffers mainly from habitat destruction, conflicts with locals (and some traditional beliefs), habitat fragmentation, and severe isolation of the populations in the southern part of the country. This study has been designed mainly relying on two basics including ecosystem and community. In the first base, we are looking for landscape features to improve the ecosystem conditions for the target species which act as an umbrella species.
