  • Reitan, Trond; Nielsen, Anders (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2016)
    Studies in ecology are often describing observed variations in a certain ecological phenomenon by use of environmental explanatory variables. A common problem is that the numerical nature of the ecological phenomenon does ...
  • Olaussen, Hanne Fostveit (Master thesis / Masteroppgave, 2013)
    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 contaminants and transfer ...
  • Elfström, Marcus; Davey, Marie Louise; Zedrosser, Andreas; Müller, Martin; De Barba, Marta; Støen, Ole-Gunnar; Miquel, Christian; Taberlet, Pierre; Hackländer, Klaus; Swenson, Jon (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2014)
    Large carnivores that approach human settlements are usually considered a threat to human property and safety. The prevailing paradigm, that such ‘problem’ animals approach settlements in search of food, ignores their ...
  • Haugen, Øyvind Pernell (Master thesis / Masteroppgave, 2014)
    It is known that elderly people suffering from heart disease can have memory problems. The hippocampus is the part of the brain that is essential for memory formation and is one of the areas that is most vulnerable to ...
  • Cudlin, Pavel; Klopcic, Matija; Tognetti, Roberto; Mális, Frantisek; Alados, Concepcion L.; Bebi, Peter; Grunewald, Karsten; Zhiyanski, Miglena; Andonowski, Vlatko; La Porta, Nicola; Bratanova-Doncheva, Svetlana; Kachaunova, Eli; Edwards-Jonášová, Magda; Ninot, Josep Maria; Rigling, Andreas; Hofgaard, Annika; Hlásny, Tomáš; Skalák, Petr; Wielgolaski, Frans Emil (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    A growing body of evidence suggests that processes of upward treeline expansion and shifts in vegetation zones may occur in response to climate change. However, such shifts can be limited by a variety of non-climatic ...
  • Volden, Inger Kristine Følling (Master thesis / Masteroppgave, 2018)
  • K, Supriya; Rowe, Melissah; Laskemoen, Terje; Mohan, Dhananjai; Price, Trevor; Lifjeld, Jan Terje (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / SubmittedVersion, 2016)
    Sperm morphological traits are highly variable among species and are commonly thought to evolve by post-copulatory sexual selection. However, little is known about the evolutionary dynamics of sperm morphology, and whether ...
  • Bonachela, Juan; Wortel, Meike Tessa; Stenseth, Nils Christian (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    The Red Queen Hypothesis proposes that perpetual co-evolution among organisms can result from purely biotic drivers. After more than four decades, there is no satisfactory understanding as to which mechanisms trigger Red ...
  • Supraha, Luka; Gerecht, Andrea Cornelia; Probert, Ian; Henderiks, Jorijntje (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2015)
    The steady increase in global ocean temperature will most likely lead to nutrient limitation in the photic zone. This will impact the physiology of marine algae, including the globally important calcifying coccolithophores. ...
  • Rindal, Valentina Lucia D'Adamo (Master thesis / Masteroppgave, 2016)
    Primates habitats are being increasingly fragmented by human activities worldwide. The behavioural flexibility exhibited by vervet monkeys (Chlorocebus pygerythrus) is assumed to be crucial in the species ability to persist ...
  • Nordbotten, Jan Martin; Levin, Simon A.; Szathmáry, Eörs; Stenseth, Nils Christian (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    In this contribution, we develop a theoretical framework for linking microprocesses (i.e., population dynamics and evolution through natural selection) with macrophenomena (such as interconnectedness and modularity within ...
  • Trosvik, Pål; Rueness, Eli Knispel; de Muinck, Eric; Moges, Amera; Mekonnen, Addisu (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Human activities can cause habitat degradation that may alter the types and quality of available food resources and thus influence the microbiomes of wild animal populations. Furthermore, seasonal shifts in food availability ...
  • Spears, Bryan; Futter, Martyn N.; Jeppesen, Erik; Huser, Brian J; Ives, Stephen; Davidson, Thomas A; Adrian, Rita; Angeler, David G.; Burthe, Sarah J; Carvalho, Laurence; Daunt, Francis; Gsell, Alena S; Hessen, Dag Olav; Janssen, Annette B G; MacKay, Eleanor B; May, Linda; Moorhouse, Heather; Olsen, Saara; Søndergaard, Martin; Woods, Helen; Thackeray, Stephen J. (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    There is a pressing need to apply stability and resilience theory to environmental management to restore degraded ecosystems effectively and to mitigate the effects of impending environmental change. Lakes represent excellent ...
  • Trosvik, Pål; de Muinck, Eric J (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2015)
    Background Determining ecological roles of community members and the impact of specific taxa on overall biodiversity in the gastrointestinal (GI) microbiota is of fundamental importance. A step towards a ...
  • Solberg, Ingrid; Røstad, Anders; Kaartvedt, Stein (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2015)
    We used moored upward-facing echosounders in combination with field campaigns to address the overwintering ecology of the clupeid sprat (Sprattus sprattus) throughout four separate winters in a Norwegian fjord. The stationary ...
  • Thoemmes, Megan S.; Stewart, Fiona A; Hernandez-Aguilar, Raquel Adriana; Bertone, Matthew A.; Baltzegar, David A.; Borski, Russell J.; Cohen, Naomi; Coyle, Kaitlin P.; Piel, Alexander K.; Dunn, Robert R. (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    The indoor environment created by the construction of homes and other buildings is often considered to be uniquely different from other environments. It is composed of organisms that are less diverse than those of the ...
