I Polar Bears in Northwest Greenland præsenteres resultaterne af en omfattende undersøgelse af isbjørnefangsten i Nordvestgrønland fra 1952 til 2005. Undersøgelsen blev foretaget i 2006 af Grønlands Naturinstitut, og resultaterne giver indsigt i blandt andet isbjørnejægernes store viden om isbjørne.

Bogen, der således er baseret på udførlige interviews med 72 erfarne fangere med bopæl i i Qaanaaq-og Upernavik-områderne, giver indgående beskrivelser af 588 isbjørnefangster. Undersøgelsen blev iværksat, fordi jagtstatistikker pegede på, at fangsten af isbjørne i Nordvestgrønland var steget markant siden begyndelsen af 1990’erne. Denne ændring var sammenfaldende med væsentlige forandringer i både vejrforhold og havisen i Nordvestgrønland.

De indsamlede oplysninger danner grundlag for en detaljeret og enestående beretning om isbjørnejagt, isbjørnens biologi, klimaændringer og disse ændringers indvirkning på både arterne og subsistensjagten.

Pressen skrev

"Overall, this impressive volume is an important contribution to our knowledge of polar bear ecology and distribution. It is well-written and edited and free of jargon, and the printing and reproduction quality are excellent. I found no errors of fact or omissions of important material. The book is well documented, with 93 references (English, Danish, and Greenlandic) on a variety of relevant subjects, including polar bear ecology and status, use of local knowledge in research and management, Greenlandic culture and harvesting techniques, and climate change. There are a total of 119 tables and 37 figures (charts and maps) in addition to a number of high-quality colour photos of bears, hunting techniques, local landscapes and communities, prey items (e.g., pagophilic seals, walruses) and successful predation events.

Born et al. provide a detailed and informative account of the distribution, biology, and harvesting of polar bears and the effects of recent climate changes on the species and the subsistence hunt. I highly recommend this book for researchers and managers involved with polar bear conservation. The information contained here is also of value to many other interested parties and is not limited to those with an interest in polar bears or Inuit harvesting. For example, the reports on climate change observations are of general interest and valuable both to researchers in a wide range of disciplines and to laypersons."
- Jeff W. Higdon, Arctic, Vol. 64, Sept. 2011.

"In conclusion, this is an important book. It provided a significant opportunity for the hunters themselves to contribute to ongoing discussions about polar bear conservation. In the process, a wealth of well-documented information was obtained, mapped, and preserved for future use. Importantly, it also clearly illustrated some of both the strengths and the clear limitations of local ecological knowledge, thus underlining that our best overall understanding of arctic animals will be obtained when both traditional and scientific approaches supplement each other."
- Ian Stirling, Polar Biology 35, 2011.

"Polar bears is volume 351 in the Meddelelser om Grønland (Monographs on Greenland) series, which was established in 1878. This volume builds on the Greenlandic and Danish tradition of sound documentation in all fields of Arctic research. Too often, inclusion of traditional ecological knowledge in management is hampered by anecdotal observations and a lack of thorough documentation. As a contribution to polar bear management, this is a first-rate example of how important documenting traditional ecological knowledge can be. ...
More than anything else, this book provides a solid template on how to conduct and present traditional ecological knowledge surveys. Recommendations on how to improve upon such surveys are most helpful. The text is well referenced and the literature cited includes several lesser known reports, which makes the reference list a valuable resource. The volume is a valuable addition to the polar bear literature."
