    Large herbivores such as sheep affect plants directly and indirectly through selective foraging, trampling, urination and defecation, thereby modifying intra- and interspecific interactions and altering resource availability ...

    House sparrows (Passer domesticus) are a hugely successful anthrodependent species; occurring on nearly every continent. Yet, despite their ubiquity and familiarity to humans, surprisingly little is known about their ...

    Intraspecific competition for food is expected to increase the trophic niche width of consumers, defined here as their diet diversity, but this process has been little studied in herbivores. Population densities of small ...

    Domestic dogs have been central to life in the North American Arctic for millennia. The ancestors of the Inuit were the first to introduce the widespread usage of dog sledge transportation technology to the Americas, but ...
  • Gustafsson, A. Lovisa S. (Doctoral thesis / Doktoravhandling, 2013)
    The main objectives of this thesis are to study patterns and processes of plant speciation in arctic and alpine diploid plants. Cryptic species are here referred to as morphologically similar individuals belonging to the ...

    Background One of the biggest challenges in avian taxonomy is the delimitation of allopatric species because their reproductive incompatibility cannot be directly studied in the wild. Instead, reproductive ...
  • Støstad, Hanna Nyborg; Johnsen, Arild; Lifjeld, Jan Terje; Rowe, Melissah (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Sperm exhibit extraordinary levels of morphological diversification across the animal kingdom. In songbirds, sperm have a helically shaped head incorporating a distinct acrosomal membrane or “helical keel,” the form and ...
  • Laskemoen, Terje (Doctoral thesis / Doktoravhandling, 2010)
    Sperm cells are the most variable animal cells, and a tremendous variation in sperm phenotypes exists among species, from minute amoeboid sperm to giant sperm in some species of fruit flies. Much effort has been devoted ...
  • Sætre, Camilla Lo Cascio; Johnsen, Arild; Stensrud, Even; Cramer, Emily Rebecca A (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Postcopulatory sexual selection may select for male primary sexual characteristics like sperm morphology and sperm motility, through sperm competition or cryptic female choice. However, how such characteristics influence ...
