    • Dissensus og subjektivering: Refleksjoner rundt kvalitet i kunstnerutdanning 

      Hansen, Hanna Horsberg (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-05-24)
      Denne teksten reflekterer over kvalitet i høyere utdanning av kunstnere. I kjernen av utforskningen bruker forfatteren sine egne erfaringer fra undervisning av kunststudenter. Ved å koble egne erfaringer med ulike kontekster og teorier om utdanning og læring, historisk så vel som samtidig, hevder forfatteren at en kunstnerutdanning må forberede studentene på det uforutsigbare og uforutsette. Derfor ...
    • «Tore Hunds čehporis» – en samifiseringsfortelling i «Nasjonaljubileet 2030 – Norge i tusen år» 

      Schøning, Eli-Anita Øivand (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2023-09-14)
      Det samiske senteret Várdobáiki sámi guovddáš har i jubileet «Nasjonaljubileet 2030 – Norge i tusen år» som mål å fremme kunnskap om samenes rolle og posisjon i middelalderen. I denne artikkelen presenterer jeg hvordan de gjennom prosjektet «Tore Hunds čehporis» og ved aktivering av duodji (samisk håndverkstradisjon) åpner for nye blikk på nasjonale fortellinger. Jeg diskuterer hvordan «Tore Hunds ...
    • A New Diving Pliocene Ardenna Shearwater (Aves: Procellariidae) from New Zealand 

      Tennyson, Alan J. D.; Salvador, Rodrigo Brincalepe; Tomotani, Barbara mizumo; Marx, Felix G. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2024-04-06)
      We report a new species of shearwater, Ardenna buchananbrowni sp. nov., from the Pliocene of New Zealand. It is both the smallest and oldest known diving member of the genus, demonstrating that this now abundant form of shearwater has had a long presence in southern oceans. Ardenna buchananbrowni sp. nov. is among the few extinct shearwaters described from the Southern Hemisphere and adds to an ...

    • Northern Norway paleofire records reveal two distinct phases of early human impacts on fire activity 

      Topness, Rebecca G; Vachula, Richard S; Balascio, Nicholas L; D’Andrea, William J; Pugsley, Genevieve; Dia, Moussa; Tingley, Martina; Curtin, Lorelei; Wickler, Stephen Kent; Anderson, R Scott (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-07-31)
      Paleofire records document fire’s response to climate, ecosystem changes, and human-activity, offering insights into climate-fire-human relationships and the potential response of fire to anthropogenic climate change. We present three new lake sediment PAH records and a charcoal record from the Lofoten Islands, Norway to evaluate the Holocene fire history of northern Norway and examine human impacts ...
    • The process of recording the Sámi place names at Stuorgieddi in the region of southern Troms, Northern Norway 

      Storm, Dikka (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
      Studies from a Sámi settlement on the island of Iinnasuolu in the region of Southern Troms, Northern Norway, where a large number of traces in the outlying fields from earlier settlements are localised, were the point of departure for several studies on the past and present of the composite history of this settlement. A study of how the local Sámi place names were established locally, and on the ...
    • Fotografisk samtidsdokumentasjon i museene: behov for nye praksiser? 

      Fjellestad, Marthe Tolnes; Stien, Hanne Hammer (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023)
      The starting point for this paper is the practice, in Norwegian cultural historical museums, of documenting contemporary daily life: more specifically, through photography. We outline various reasons for and methods of such documentation, focusing on three specific case studies, dating from 1999 to the present day, and particularly on the various collection management practices in these cases. Our ...
    • Why avoid naming diseases after animals? The case of “Molluscum contagiosum” 

      Machado, Fabrizio M.; Salvador, Rodrigo Brincalepe (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-03-06)
      For over 200 years, the name molluscum contagiosum—a dermatological disease—has unfairly associated molluscs (the second largest group of animals on the planet) with this highly contagious infectious disease. Herein, arguments are presented demonstrating the serious problem of continuing to use this name, including animal welfare concerns. Thus, to minimize any unnecessary impacts on the biodiversity ...
    • The sedimentary ancient DNA workflow 

      Heintzman, Peter D.; Nota, Kevin; Rouillard, Alexandra; Lammers, Youri; Murchie, Tyler; Armbrecht, Linda; Garcés-Pastor, Sandra; Vernot, Benjamin (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
      Sedimentary ancient DNA (sedaDNA) is continuing to revolutionise our understanding of past biological and geological processes by retrieving and analysing the ancient DNA preserved in lake, cave, open terrestrial, midden, permafrozen, and marine environments (Crump, 2021). The study of sedaDNA began in the late 1990s (Coolen and Overmann, 1998) with the first reports of extinct animal sedaDNA in ...
    • Phylogenetic position of Canaridiscus and reestablishment of Gonyodiscus (Gastropoda, Discidae) 

      Salvador, Rodrigo Brincalepe; Ravalo, Lorenzo G. O.; de Winter, A.J. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-13)
      The genus Canaridiscus M. R. Alonso & Ibáñez, 2011, endemic to the Canary Islands, has a curious taxonomic history and is currently defined based only on the peculiar anatomy of its genital organs. Its relationship to European Discus species and other members of the family Discidae is unclear and its status as a distinct genus remains tentative. In the present study we include a species of Canaridiscus, ...
    • How many species of Mollusca are there in Brazil? A collective taxonomic effort to reveal this still unknown diversity 

      Machado, Fabrizio M.; Miranda, Marcel S.; Salvador, Rodrigo Brincalepe; Pimenta, Alexandre D. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-11)
      The expression ‘you need to know to conserve’ is a well-known cliche among biologists. Documenting the richness of a group of organisms is the first step towards understanding biodiversity and preparing efficient conservation plans. In this context, many efforts have been made to quantify the number of species on Earth and estimate the number of species still unknown to science. A few countries have ...
    • The snails of Super Mario Bros 

      Salvador, Rodrigo Brincalepe (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-11)
      Nintendo has recently released a new Mario game, Super Mario Bros. Wonder, a multiplayer platformer involving a good dose of mushrooms, both in-game and presumably during development. But psychedelic trips aside, in the first few stages of the game we are introduced to a completely new (and arguably the best) “enemy” in Mario games: a snail with a fabulous pink shell. Figure 1. Snail (©Nintendo, ...

    • Exotic pollen in sediments from the high Arctic Lake Tenndammen, Svalbard archipelago: diversity, sources, and transport pathways 

      Poliakova, Anastasia; Brown, Antony Gavin; Alsos, Inger Greve (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-01-18)
      We analysed the pollen and spores extracted from 73 samples of lacustrine sediments from Colesdalen in Svalbard (Lake Tenndammen) as well as 10 soil samples collected from the lake’s shores. In total, 56 pollen taxa were recorded from the sediments spanning the last 800 years, whilst 35 pollen types were found in the soil samples. Pollen was categorised as (i) regional (from Svalbard); (ii) ...
    • A FLexible musical instrument Augmentation that is Programmable, Integrated in a Box (FLAPIBox) 

      Stifjell, Erik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023)
      Most musical instrument augmentations aim to only fit one specific instrument and depend on an external sound system to work as intended. In a more acoustic concert setting this often alienates the electronic sound component. The FLAPIBox is an integrated solution that fits most acoustic instruments and use its own resonance for playing electronic sound in a more organic way—through the instrument ...
    • When details matter: Integrative revision of Holarctic Coelophthinia Edwards (Diptera, Mycetophilidae), including mapping of its mitogenome, leads to the description of four new pseudocryptic species 

      Kjærandsen, Jostein; Kerr, Peter H.; Lindemann, Jon Peder; Kurina, Olavi (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-02-14)
      Background - The small genus Coelophthinia Edwards, 1941 of the subfamily Gnoristinae (Diptera, Mycetophilidae) is so far known to harbour four species from the Palaearctic, Nearctic and Neotropical Regions. Extensive DNA barcoding of fungus gnats of the family Mycetophilidae through the International Barcode of Life project (iBOL) have initiated integrative studies resulting in taxonomic upgrades ...
    • The Ervika Runestone and Other Evidence for the Early Christianization of Northern Norway 

      Spangen, Marte; Henriksen, Jørn Erik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024)
      In the early 1980s, a runestone fragment with a Christian inscription from the early eleventh century was discovered in Harstad town, northern Norway, in excavated masses originating from the farm Ervika. Runestones are very rare archaeological finds in this region, but, despite being included in runological overviews, the Ervika stone has not been studied or published by archaeologists or historians. ...
    • Individual genotypes from environmental DNA: Fingerprinting snow tracks of three large carnivore species 

      De Barba, Marta; Baur, Molly; Boyer, Frédéric; Fumagalli, Luca; Konec, Marjeta; Miquel, Christian; Pazhenkova, Elena; Remollino, Nadège; Skrbinšek, Tomaž; Stoffel, Céline; Taberlet, Pierre Robert Michel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-15)
      Continued advancements in environmental DNA (eDNA) research have made it possible to access intraspecific variation from eDNA samples, opening new opportunities to expand non-invasive genetic studies of wildlife populations. However, the use of eDNA samples for individual genotyping, as typically performed in non-invasive genetics, still remains elusive. We present successful individual genotyping ...
    • The Domestic Turn in Postpandemic Indigenous Arctic Tourism: Emerging Stories of Self and Other 

      Brattland, Camilla; Ren, Carina; Bembom, Elsbeth; Bruin, Randy (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023)
      In this article, we explore how the lockdowns followed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent rise in domestic tourism impacted the ways in which Arctic tourism businesses sold and shared their experiences and stories to the domestic tourist–for many, a new and unusual guest. In exploring cases from Greenland and Northern Norway, we are interested in describing tourism marketing and product ...
    • Young and burned out–the dilemma of women’s elite football. Early termination of the football career for elite women footballers in Norway caused by a high degree of emotional and interpersonal stressors 

      Wilhelmsen, Linda (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-09-30)
      Early termination of football careers is a challenge for elite women footballers. They quit their careers before experience, competence, and performance are fully developed, and women’s football is deprived of the opportunity to develop to the highest optimal quality. Women’s elite football is mostly semi-professional, with athletes juggling between football, work, and education. This qualitative ...
