Sámi reindeer governance in Norway as competing knowledge systems: a participatory study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
Using a participatory research approach, we assess the knowledge systems and political ontology of reindeer husbandry. The study was conducted by a mixed team of scientists and Sámi reindeer herders who practiced reindeer husbandry in West Finnmark, northern Norway, both prior to and during the state-led “rationalization” of Sámi reindeer husbandry since the late 1970s. The analysis is based on the ...
Assessing impacts of simulated oil spills on the Northeast Arctic cod fishery
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-04)
We simulate oil spills of 1500 and 4500 m<sup>3</sup>/day lasting 14, 45, and 90 days in the spawning grounds of the commercial fish species, Northeast Arctic cod. Modeling the life history of individual fish eggs and larvae, we predict deviations from the historical pattern of recruitment to the adult population due to toxic oil exposures. Reductions in survival for pelagic stages of cod were 0–10%, ...
Synthesis and biological evaluations of marine oxohexadecenoic acids: PPARα/γ dual agonism and anti-diabetic target gene effects
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-18)
Obesity and associated disorders such as metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes (T2D) have reached epidemic proportions. Several natural products have been reported as Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor (PPAR) agonists, functioning as lead compounds towards developing new anti-diabetic drugs due to adverse side effects of existing PPAR drugs. We recently isolated and identified (7E)-9-oxoh ...
