• A multiple risk factor program is associated with decreased risk of cardiovascular disease in 70-year-olds: A cohort study from Sweden 

    Nordström, Anna; Bergman, Jonathan; Björk, Sabine; Carlberg, Bo; Johansson, Jonas; Hult, Andreas; Nordström, Peter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-06-11)
    <i>Background</i> - In individuals below 65 years of age, primary prevention programs have not been successful in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and death. However, no large study to our knowledge has previously evaluated the effects of prevention programs in individuals aged 65 years or older. The present cohort study evaluated the risk of CVD in a primary prevention program for ...
  • Temperature-dependent egg production and egg hatching rates of small egg-carrying and broadcast-spawning copepods Oithona similis, Microsetella norvegica and Microcalanus pusillus 

    Barth-Jensen, Coralie; Koski, Marja; Varpe, Øystein; Glad, Peter; Wangensteen, Owen S.; Præbel, Kim; Svensen, Camilla (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-09-07)
    Reproductive rates of copepods are temperature-dependent, but poorly known for small copepods at low temperatures, hindering the predictions of population dynamics and secondary production in high-latitude ecosystems. We investigated egg hatching rates, hatching success and egg production of the small copepods <i>Oithona similis</i> and <i>Microsetella norvegica</i> (sac spawners) and <i>Microcalanus ...
  • The Atlantic Salmon Gill Transcriptome Response in a Natural Outbreak of Salmon Gill Pox Virus Infection Reveals New Biomarkers of Gill Pathology and Suppression of Mucosal Defense 

    Gjessing, Mona Cecilie; Krasnov, Aleksei; Timmerhaus, Gerrit; Brun, Svante; Afanasyev, Sergey; Dale, Ole Bendik; Dahle, Maria K (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-09-04)
    The salmon gill poxvirus (SGPV) is a large DNA virus that infects gill epithelial cells in Atlantic salmon and is associated with acute high mortality disease outbreaks in aquaculture. The pathological effects of SGPV infection include gill epithelial apoptosis in the acute phase of the disease and hyperplasia of gill epithelial cells in surviving fish, causing damage to the gill respiratory surface. ...
  • The last two millennia: climate, ocean circulation and paleoproductivity inferred from planktic foraminifera, south-western Svalbard margin 

    Zamelczyk, Katarzyna; Rasmussen, Tine Lander; Raitzsch, Markus; Chierici, Melissa (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-10-20)
    We reconstruct climate and changes in water-mass properties in relation to variations in palaeoproductivity at the south-western Svalbard margin throughout the last 2000 years. Environmental conditions in subsurface (ca. 250–75 m) and near-surface to surface water (75–0 m) were studied on the basis of the distribution patterns and fluxes of planktic foraminiferal faunas. Stable isotopes in three ...
  • Ocean-rafted pumice constrains postglacial relative sea-level and supports Holocene ice cap survival 

    Farnsworth, Wesley Randall; Blake Jr., Wesley; Gudmundsdottir, Esther Ruth; Ingólfsson, Ólafur; Larsen, Gudrún; Óladóttir, Bergrún Arna; Schomacker, Anders (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-10-24)
    Distally deposited tephra from explosive volcanic eruptions can be a powerful tool for precise dating and correlation of sedimentary archives and landforms. However, the morphostratigraphic and chronological potential of ocean-rafted pumice has been under-utilized considering its long observational history and widespread distribution on modern and palaeo-shorelines around the world. Here we analyze ...
