    The extensive spatial and temporal coverage of many citizen science datasets (CSD) makes them appealing for use in species distribution modeling and forecasting. However, a frequent limitation is the inability to validate ...
  • Støstad, Hanna Nyborg (Doctoral thesis / Doktoravhandling, 2018)
    Despite the similar function of all sperm cells – to fertilise the egg – there is extraordinary diversity in sperm shape and length across taxa. This thesis aims to improve our understanding of how this diversity has ...

  • Anmarkrud, Jarl Andreas (Doctoral thesis / Doktoravhandling, 2011)
    Genetic variation is a prerequisite for evolution. The present thesis examines how genetic diversity arises and is maintained. The thesis can be divided into two subprojects, addressing neutral and functional genetic ...
