A partial short-faced bear skeleton from an Ozark cave with comments on the paleobiology of the species, 2003, Schubert, B. W. , Kaufmann, J. E.
Portions of an extinct giant short-faced bear, Arctodus simus, were recovered from a remote area within an Ozark cave, herein named Big Bear Cave. The partially articulated skeleton was found in banded silt and clay sediments near a small entrenched stream. The sediment covered and preserved skeletal elements of low vertical relief (e.g., feet) in articulation. Examination of a thin layer of manganese and clay under and adjacent to some skeletal remains revealed fossilized hair. The manganese in this layer is considered to be a by-product of microorganisms feeding on the bear carcass. Although the skeleton was incomplete, the recovered material represents one of the more complete skeletons for this species. The stage of epiphyseal fusion in the skeleton indicates an osteologically immature individual. The specimen is considered to be a female because measurements of teeth and fused postcranial elements lie at the small end of the size range for A. simus. Like all other bears, the giant short-faced bear is sexually dimorphic. A review of A. simus records revealed that only small individuals have been recovered from cave deposits. This association of small A. simus specimens with caves suggests that females used these subterranean shelters for denning.

Neue palontologische Daten von der Brenhhle im Hartelsgraben (1714/1), Gesuseberge, Steiermark., 2005, Rabeder, G.
Fossil ursid remains excavated in 1986 in the Alpine bear cave Brenhhle im Hartelsgraben are analysed by modern morphological methods. According to metric and morphodynamic datings this cave was inhabitated by a large cave bear form closely related to Ursus ingressus Rabeder & al., 2004.

INVESTIGATIONS REGARDING BEAR CAVE MASSIF (LOWER SILESIA) LONG-TERM STABILITy, 2008, M?kolski Krzysztof, Caco? Stefan Jamroz, Olgierd, Ko?k Blahoslav & Kacza?ek Miros?aw
Bear Cave under Mt nienik is located near the Lower Silesian Village of Kletno in a wider tectonic fault zone of Sudeten, Klodzko Valley, South Poland. Stability requirements along the visitors path in the cave called for permanent checks of possible rock movements in the massif, while mining operations in the neighbouring marble quarry represented major threat to cave stability. Precise levelling network for vertical movements in the cave and its vicinity was established about 20 years ago. Outside the cave in the Klenica River valley levelling traverses were crossing tectonic faults. Periodical measurements have been repeated since 1984. In the cave two fault zones of major risk have been checked also with TM-71 crack gauges and records have been taken with a month frequency. These two were the tectonic crack zones of the Water Corridor and the main fault structure of the cave found in the Cascade Alley. Fourteen years ago after finding that quarry blasts induced increased movements in the cave, quarry operations were stopped. Recently, gradual subsidence of some levelling bench-marks was observed, as well as some periods of increased micro-displacements on the tectonic crack zones. Such observations are discussed.

Bericht ber die Probegrabung (2011) in der Pendling-Brenhhle bei Kufstein (Nordtirol; 1266/21), 2012, Frischauf C. , Mazelis E. , Rabeder G.
A recent excavation in the Pendling cave (Rauberloch) has yielded identifiable remains of brown bears and cave bears. A radiometric dating attempt of a fossilized cave bear bone (Astragalus) failed due to the lack of collagen.
