    • Paleoekolgiska undersökningar i samband med utvidgelse av E8 i Lavangsdalen 

      Sjøgren, Per Johan E (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2013)
      Inför utvidgelsen av E8 i Lavangsdalen identifierades två fredade samiska kulturminneslokaliteter (Sametinget 2011) vilka delvis eller helt skulle förstöras i samband med utbyggningen och krävde vidare undersökningar. Det rörde sig om kulturspår från samisk renskötsel vilket i första hand gav sig uttryck som förändringar i dagens vegetation. För att få en förståelse av hur långt tillbaka i tiden den ...
    • Pannaria pyxinoides comb. nov., an overlooked lichen from Northern New Zealand 

      Elvebakk, Arve (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2018-07)
      The name <i>Psoroma pyxinoides</i>, which has been considered to be a synonym of <i>Pannaria sphinctrina</i>, is shown here to represent a distinct species, differing from <i>P. sphinctrina</i> by thallus characters and in spore and pycnidium morphology. Those characters indicate a relationship with <i>Pannaria allorhiza</i>. Like the latter species, <i>P. pyxinoides</i> is endemic to northern New ...
    • Paradulichia spinifera gurjanova, 1946 (Amphipoda, dulichiidae), a valid species? 

      Johansen, Per-Otto; Vader, Wim (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-07-11)
      Examination of Paradulichia-material collected from the Barents Sea during the Mareano cruises indicated that there are clear morphological differences between Paradulichia typica Boeck, 1871 from the Hardangerfjord, W. Norway and Paradulichia spinifera Gurjanova, 1946 from the Arctic. Based on our material and the original descriptions, these differences are the acute ventral parts of the body ...
    • Past Arctic aliens have passed away, current ones may stay 

      Alsos, Inger Greve; Ware, Christopher; Elven, Reidar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-07-04)
      Increased human activity and climate change are expected to increase the numbers and impact of alien species in the Arctic, but knowledge of alien species is poor in most Arctic regions. Through field investigations over the last 10 years, and review of alien vascular plant records for the high Arctic Archipelago Svalbard over the past 130 years, we explored long term trends in persistence and ...

    • Pestplanten tromsøsvineblom Jacobaea alpina x subalpina i Norge - opphav og status 

      Alm, Torbjørn; Deschamps, Amandine Maria; Often, Anders (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Jacobaea alpina (syn. Senecio alpinus, S. cordatus ) and J. subalpina (syn. Senecio subalpinus ) are native to the mountains of Central Europe. Both were cultivated as ornamentals in late 19th century Tromsø. From the early 1990’s onwards, numerous Jacobaea stands have been noticed outside gardens, in particular at Tromsø, but extending from Lenvik in central Troms northwards ...

    • Plant DNA in sediments: to which degree do they represent the flora? 

      Alsos, Inger Greve; Coissac, Eric; Edwards, Mary E.; Merkel, Marie Kristine Føreid; Gielly, Ludovic; Sjögren, Per; Taberlet, Pierre; Yoccoz, Nigel Gilles (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2015-05)
    • Plant DNA metabarcoding of lake sediments: How does it represent the contemporary vegetation 

      Alsos, Inger Greve; Lammers, Youri; Yoccoz, Nigel Gilles; Jørgensen, Tina; Sjögren, Per; Gielly, Ludovic; Edwards, Mary E. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-04-17)
      Metabarcoding of lake sediments have been shown to reveal current and past biodiversity, but little is known about the degree to which taxa growing in the vegetation are represented in environmental DNA (eDNA) records. We analysed composition of lake and catchment vegetation and vascular plant eDNA at 11 lakes in northern Norway. Out of 489 records of taxa growing within 2 m from the lake shore, ...
    • Plant species introduced by foreigners according to folk tradition in Norway and some other European countries: Xenophobic tales or not? 

      Alm, Torbjørn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-10-05)
      Background In their quest to understand and interpret nature, people have frequently sought religious or divine origins for plant species and their characteristics. Less often, historical events or persons are involved. This study comprises eleven cases of the latter kind, all claiming that plant species have been introduced by foreigners or at least from foreign lands. Methods Based on literature ...
    • Polare maskuliniteter 

      Hauan, Marit Anne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      In this paper my aim is to read and understand the journal of Gerrit de Veer from the last journey of William Barents to the Arctic Regions in 1596 and the journal of captain Junge on his hunting trip from Tromsø to Svalbard in 1834.It is nearly 240 years between this to voyages. The first journal is known as the earliest report from the arctic era. Gerrit de Veer adds instructive copper engravings ...

      Günther, Torsten; Malmström, Helena; Svensson, Emma M.; Omrak, Ayça; Sánchez-Quinto, Frederico; Kılınç, Gülşah M.; Krzewinska, Maja; Eriksson, Gunilla; Fraser, Magdalena; Edlund, Hanna; Munteres, Arielle R.; Coutinho, Alexandra; Simões, Luciana G.; Vicente, Mário; Sjölander, Anders; Sellevold, Berit J.; Jørgensen, Roger; Claes, Peter; Shriver, Mark D.; Valdiosera, Cristina; Netea, Mihai G.; Apel, Jan; Lidén, Kerstin Birgitta; Skar, Birgitte; Storå, Jan; Götherström, Anders; Jakobsson, Mattias (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-09)
      Scandinavia was one of the last geographic areas in Europe to become habitable for humans after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). However, the routes and genetic composition of these postglacial migrants remain unclear. We sequenced the genomes, up to 57× coverage, of seven hunter-gatherers excavated across Scandinavia and dated from 9,500–6,000 years before present (BP). Surprisingly, among the ...
    • The potential of shoreline and shallow submerged Iron Age and Medieval archaeological sites in the Lofoten Islands, northern Norway 

      Wickler, Stephen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      The Lofoten-Vesterålen archipelago (67°30’ - 69°30’N) is a chain of mountainous islands dissected by cirques, glacial valleys, and fjords that extends from northeast to southwest into the Norwegian Sea (Figure 1). Vesterålen is the northerly chain of islands and the seven islands of Lofoten lie to the south. The climate of Lofoten is mild despite this high latitude location. Temperatures ...
    • Potential of the Gap 

      Torell, Lisa (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2018-05-28)
      Potential of the Gap has been about method and place. In site-specific, contextual or relational art, the relationships between and relationships to are critical to the critical artistic licence. That is, relations between or to man, object, situation and context. I have engaged with the relationship between place, language and identity in relation to systems and logic. Convention and function. It ...
    • Prestasjonsangst i gehørtrening. Faktorer som kan påvirke prestasjonsangst - En observasjons- og intervjustudie 

      Primberg, Christian (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-08)
      Denne kvalitative forskningsstudien undersøker: Hvilke faktorer kan påvirke prestasjonsangst i gehørtreningsfaget. Tidligere forskning tyder på at en del elever og studenter har prestasjonsangst som kan være til hinder for læring. Jeg var derfor interessert i å utforske hvilke tanker lærere i gehørtrening har om arbeidsmåter som påvirker prestasjonsangst. Metoden i studien var en kombinasjon av ...
    • Prevailing weather conditions and diet composition affect chick growth and survival in the black-legged kittiwake 

      Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; May, Roel F.; Barrett, Robert T.; Langset, Magdalene; Sandercock, Brett K.; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-04)
      To identify priorities for management of seabirds during the breeding season, it is important to understand the ecological mechanisms driving chick growth and survival. In this study, we examined the effects of diet and prevailing weather on the growth and survival of chicks of black-legged kittiwakes Rissa tridactyla over a 10 yr period at Anda, a seabird colony in northern Norway. We show that ...
    • Prevention of microbial species introductions to the arctic: The efficacy of footwear disinfection measures on cruise ships 

      Rumpf, Sabine Bettina; Alsos, Inger Greve; Ware, Christopher (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-06)
      Biosecurity measures are commonly used to prevent the introduction of non-native species to natural environments globally, yet the efficacy of practices is rarely tested under operational conditions. A voluntary biosecurity measure was trialled in the Norwegian high Arctic following concern that non-native species might be transferred to the region on the footwear of travellers. Passengers aboard ...
