What Happened in Northern Norway? - A comparative and quantitative analysis of political and demographic development in Northern Norway from 1950 to 2015

  • Experiencing the Arctic in the Past: French Visitors to Finnmark in the Late 1700s and Early 1800s 

    Guissard, Isabelle; Lee, Young-Sook (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2017)
    This chapter traces three elite French visitors to northern Norway who travelled there long before the area began receiving attention as a tourist destination per se. Drawing on archival records and relevant literature, it recounts the travel experiences of the three visitors, who showed interest in the Arctic environment and its people in the late 1700s and early 1800s. The first story comes ...
  • The role of gill raker number variability in adaptive radiation of coregonid fish 

    Kahilainen, Kimmo; Siwertsson, Anna; Gjelland, Karl Øystein; Knudsen, Rune; Bøhn, Thomas; Amundsen, Per-Arne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2010-07-27)
    Gill raker divergence is a general pattern in adaptive radiations of postglacial fish, but few studies have addressed the adaptive significance of this morphological trait in foraging and eco-evolutionary interactions among predator and prey. Here, a set of subarctic lakes along a diversifying gradient of coregonids was used as the natural setting to explore correlations between gill raker numbers ...
  • Prevalence of antibodies against Brucella spp. in West Greenland polar bears (Ursus maritimus) and East Greenland muskoxen (Ovibos moschatus) 

    Sonne, Christian; Andersen-Ranberg, Emilie; Rajala, Elisabeth; Agerholm, Jørgen S.; Bonefeld-Jørgensen, Eva; Desforges, Jean-Pierre; Eulaers, Igor; Gustavson, Kim; Jenssen, Bjørn Munro; Koch, Anders; Rosing-Asvid, Aqqalu; Schmidt, Nils Martin; Grøndahl, Carsten; Mosbacher, Jesper Bruun; Siebert, Ursula; Tryland, Morten; Mulvad, Gert; Born, Erik W; Laidre, Kristin; Wiig, Øystein; Dietz, Rune; Magnusson, Ulf (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-19)
    Zoonotic infections transmitted from terrestrial and marine mammals to humans in European Arctic are of unknown significance, despite considerable potential for transmission due to local hunt and a rapidly changing environment. As an example, infection with <i>Brucella</i> bacteria may have significant impact on human health due to consumption of raw meat or otherwise contact with tissues and fluids ...
  • Is coexistence mediated by microhabitat segregation? An in-depth exploration of a fish invasion 

    Gjelland, Karl Øystein; Bøhn, Thomas; Amundsen, Per-Arne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2007)
    Vendace <i>Coregonus albula</i> has invaded the subarctic Pasvik hydrosystem, northern Norway and Russia, after being translocated from its native Finnish range into Lake Inari (Finland), upstream of Pasvik. The development of the invader and the effects on two native lake communities in the upstream and downstream part of the hydrosystem, respectively, have been monitored since 1991. In the upstream ...
  • Low expression levels of ATM may substitute for CHEK2/TP53 mutations predicting resistance towards anthracycline and mitomycin chemotherapy in breast cancer 

    Knappskog, Stian; Chrisanthar, Ranjan; Løkkevik, Erik; Anker, Gun Birgitta; Østenstad, Bjørn; Lundgren, Steinar; Risberg, Terje; Mjaaland, Ingvil; Leirvaag, Beryl; Miletic, Hrvoje; Lønning, Per Eystein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012-03-15)
    <i>Introduction</i>: Mutations affecting p53 or its upstream activator Chk2 are associated with resistance to DNA-damaging chemotherapy in breast cancer. ATM (Ataxia Telangiectasia Mutated protein) is the key activator of p53 and Chk2 in response to genotoxic stress. Here, we sought to evaluate ATM's potential role in resistance to chemotherapy.<p> <p><i>Methods</i>: We sequenced <i>ATM</i> and ...
