TL;DR: The greater prevalence and diversity of tetracycline resistance elements among bear-derived non-pathogenic Listeria strains suggest the potential of the latter to serve as reservoirs for retention and diversification of AMR determinants in this wildlife host and warrant their further monitoring and study.
