How does a bears' hibernation affect the rest of it's ecosystem?
I don't mean to sound rude but as this would have inevitably happened if I hadn't said anything, I have the following request: please don't tell me what hibernation is and how it affects the bear. I'm a bit more interested in knowing how it's hibernation affects the rest of it's ecosystem. This question stems from an article i read recently which states that the bears in Spain have not entered their hibernating stage as they normally do at this time of year.

Bears are near the top of the food chain, so I would imagine it would give their pray time to reproduce so the bear will have plenty of food choices when he wakes up.
