    Skylstad, Viljar Alain (Biologisk institutt) This thesis examines the phytoplankton diversity in the Oslo Fjord and the seasonality of the size, shape and abundance of the genus Dinophysis Ehrenberg. The genus, which contains several toxin-produ...
  3. Fine- and broad-scale premating isolation between two closely related species, the house sparrow (Passer domesticus) and the Spanish sparrow (P. hispaniolensis) (2013) Masteroppgave
    Tu, My Hanh (Biologisk institutt) Speciation involves the evolution of reproductive barriers that maintain the genetic integrity of species. Premating barriers, in particular, have been referred to as one of the most important mechani...
  4. Marine bentosalger ved 6 stasjoner langs sør-øst kysten av Norge (2013) Masteroppgave
    Minchin, Tanya (Biologisk institutt)
  5. Allopatric speciation and multi-trait variation in the common chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs) complex (2013) Masteroppgave
    Stensrud, Even (Biologisk institutt) The common chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs) is a widespread passerine species in the West Palearctic, and is a common breeder in most of Europe, western Asia, northern Africa, and the Macaronesian island...
  6. Pro-inflammatory responses by diesel exhaust particles in epithelial lung cells: (2013) Masteroppgave
    Bach, Nicolai Skoglund (Biologisk institutt)
  7. Do polychaete digestive fluids affect the bioavailability of sediment-bound PAHs? (2013) Masteroppgave
    Olaussen, Hanne Fostveit (Biologisk institutt) Marine organisms are exposed to a wide range of potentially hazardous substances, from natural and/or anthropogenic sources. Organisms in polluted sediments may accumulate high amounts of chemical con...
  8. Low host specificity among arctic ectomycorrhizal fungi (2013) Masteroppgave
    Botnen, Synnøve (Biologisk institutt) Host specificity among ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungi seems to vary among different habitats, and it is difficult to draw general conclusions across environments. Little is known about the host specifici...
  9. Genetic structure and diversity of Sorghum bicolor at three geographical scales in Africa (2013) Masteroppgave
    Khalsa, Siri-Dharma Kaur (Biologisk institutt) Sorghum is ranked the fifth most produced food crop in the world, and is a dietary staple for over 500 million people in over 30 countries. It is the second most produced food crop in Africa, where cu...
  10. Description of a new Upper Jurassic ophthalmosaurid ichthyosaur from the Slottsmøya Member, Agardhfjellet Formation of central Spitsbergen (2013) Masteroppgave
    Roberts, Aubrey Jane (Biologisk institutt) Ichthyosaurs were a group of marine reptiles that thrived in the Mesozoic seas. They evolved to be highly specialized marine predators, and were the first reptilian group to be entirely aquatic. This ...
  11. Passive dosing in a Skeletonema costatum toxicity test (2013) Masteroppgave
    Kaarstad, Erlend (Biologisk institutt) Precise estimation of toxicity is essential in the risk assessment of hydrophobic organic compounds (HOCs). Toxicity testing of HOCs in aquatic bioassays is particularly challenging due to loss of sub...
  12. The role of sex-ratio on male reproductive investment of Calanoid copepod Temora longicornis (2013) Masteroppgave
    Nordbotten, Marius (Biologisk institutt) Copepods are said to be the key link between the primary producers and higher trophic levels. They inhabit all oceans and are found in almost all marine communities. In the ocean, it is common to obse...
  13. Effects of environmental contaminants on Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) from the inner Oslofjord (2013) Masteroppgave
    Fredriksen, Lene (Biologisk institutt) The present study is part of an ongoing effort to monitor the pollution situation in the inner Oslofjord. The purpose of the study was to investigate effects of pollutants on the resident cod populati...
  14. Life history and spatial ecology of Skagerrak coastal cod (Gadus morhua) (2013) Masteroppgave
    Aalvik, Ida Margrethe (Biologisk institutt) Practically every Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) stock have suffered from depletion and overfishing, placing the fish on IUCN’s Red List as ‘Vulnerable’. The Skagerrak Coastal Cod stock...
  15. VARIATION IN EPIPHYTIC BRYOPHYTE COMPOSITION WITHIN AND BETWEEN ASH TREES AT TUNGESVIK, ETNE, W. NORWAY (2013) Masteroppgave
    Hovden, Hanne (Biologisk institutt) The epiphytic bryophyte composition between and within 73 ash trees (minimum stem diameter at breast height 20 cm) at Tungesvik, Etne, West Norway was investigated. The main aim of the study was to in...
  16. Density Dependence in the Host-Parasite Dynamic of Gyrodactylus salaris on Different Stocks of Salmon, Salmo salar (2013) Masteroppgave
