An analysis of blood samples from bears and dormice.
Blood samples were taken from 11 free-ranging sub-adult 2-to 3-yr-old Eurasian brown bears equipped with a Global Positioning System (GPS) collar in Dalarna and Gävleborg´s Counties, Sweden during 2012-2014.
In total 56 garden dormice obtained from a breeding colony kept at the Research Institute of Wildlife Ecology (Vienna, Austria) were included in these experiments. The dormice presented in this study were part of a large experiment conducted over 3 consecutive years where animals had to be sacrificed at different time-points during hibernation (torpor and euthermic) to assess to various tissues, including the heart and other organs of interest.
A variable lists with descriptions for each table are included in the documentation files
