    Mennesker har i lang tid forvaltet hjortevilt for ulike formål som mat, troféer eller bestandsregulering. Forvaltningen foregår gjennom ulike former for selektiv jakt. Pga. alders- og kjønnsspesifikke kvoter og jegernes ...
  • Qviller, Lars; Olsen, Nina Risnes; Bærum, Kim Magnus; Meisingset, Erling L.; Loe, Leif Egil; Ytrehus, Bjørnar; Viljugrein, Hildegunn; Mysterud, Atle (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    Partial migration is common among northern ungulates, typically involving an altitudinal movement for seasonally migratory individuals. The main driving force behind migration is the benefit of an extended period of access ...

    Next generation sequencing of ribosomal DNA is increasingly used to assess the diversity and structure of microbial communities. Here we test the ability of 454 pyrosequencing to detect the number of species present, and ...
  • Wilschut, Liesbeth I; Addink, Elisabeth A; Heesterbeek, Hans; Heier, Lise; Laudisoit, Anne; Begon, Mike; Davis, Stephen; Dubyanskiy, Vladimir M; Burdelov, Leonid A; de Jong, Steven M (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    Background Plague (Yersinia pestis infection) is a vector-borne disease which caused millions of human deaths in the Middle Ages. The hosts of plague are mostly rodents, and the disease is spread by the ...
  • Eikeset, Anne Marie; Richter, Andries Peter; Dankel, Dorothy; Dunlop, Erin; Heino, Mikko Petteri; Dieckmann, Ulf; Stenseth, Nils Christian (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    Harvest control rules (HCRs) have been implemented for many fisheries worldwide. However, in most instances, those HCRs are not based on the explicit feedbacks between stock properties and economic considerations. This ...
  • Durant, Joel Marcel; Ottersen, Geir; Stenseth, Nils Christian (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    Understanding the drivers (internal and external) that determine the productivity of marine ecosystems is challenging. For example, the correct estimate of recruitment is essential to estimate fish stock abundance. In this ...
  • Stige, Leif Christian; Hunsicker, Mary E.; Bailey, Kevin M.; Yaragina, Natalia A.; Hunt, George L Jr (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    Prediction of year-class strength is a critical challenge for fisheries managers. Theoretically, predictions of recruitment should be better when they are based on estimates of cohort size taken close to the age of recruitment ...
  • Durant, Joel Marcel; Hjermann, Dag Øystein; Falkenhaug, Tone; Gifford, Dian; Naustvoll, Lars Johan; Sullivan, Barbara; Beaugrand, Grégory; Stenseth, Nils Christian (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    Differential change in the phenology of predators and prey is a potentially important climate-mediated mechanism influencing populations. The match-mismatch hypothesis describes the effect of predator-prey population ...
  • Chambers, Lynda E.; Altwegg, Res; Barbraud, Christophe; Barnard, Phoebe; Beaumont, Linda J.; Crawford, Robert J. M.; Durant, Joel Marcel; Hughes, Lesley; Keatley, Marie R.; Low, Matt; Morellato, Patricia C.; Poloczanska, Elvira S.; Ruoppolo, Valeria; Vanstreels, Ralph E.T.; Woehler, Eric J.; Wolfaardt, Anton C. (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    Current evidence of phenological responses to recent climate change is substantially biased towards northern hemisphere temperate regions. Given regional differences in climate change, shifts in phenology will not be uniform ...
  • Durant, Joel Marcel; Hidalgo, Manuel; Rouyer, Tristan Alexander; Hjermann, Dag Øystein; Ciannelli, Lorenzo; Eikeset, Anne Marie; Yaragina, Natalia A.; Stenseth, Nils Christian (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    Population growth is affected by several factors such as climate, species interaction and harvesting pressure. However, additional complexity can arise if fishing increases the sensitivity to environmental variability. To ...
  • Iversen, Rasmus; Di Niro, Roberto; Stamnæs, Jorunn; Lundin, Knut E A; Wilson, Patric C.; Sollid, Ludvig Magne (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    The gluten-sensitive enteropathy celiac disease is tightly associated with the production of autoantibodies specific for the enzyme transglutaminase 2 (TG2)5 . The mechanisms underlying the activation of autoreactive B ...
  • Seidl, Sebastian (Doctoral thesis / Doktoravhandling, 2013)
    We investigated two proteins. PKC iota and zeta, that are involved in cancer development and metastasis of tumors. I was able to show that both proteins underly different regulation regarding their nuclear import in cells. ...
  • Meshesha, Anagaw Atickem (Doctoral thesis / Doktoravhandling, 2013)
    Many African wildlife species are at risk of extinction as a result of habitat loss and fragmentation associated with human influence. Among these is the endangered antelope, mountain nyala (Tragelaphus buxtoni), endemic ...
