    • Small shrubs with large importance? Smaller deer may increase the moose-forestry conflict through feeding competition over Vaccinium shrubs in the field layer 

      Spitzer, Robert; Coissac, Eric; Felton, Annika M.; Fohringer, Christian; Juvany, Laura; Landman, Marietjie; Singh, Navinder J.; Taberlet, Pierre Robert Michel; Widemo, Fredrik; Cromsigt, Joris P. G. M. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-11-18)
      The moose (Alces alces) is a dominant large mammalian herbivore in the world’s boreal zones. Moose exert significant browsing impacts on forest vegetation and are therefore often at the centre of wildlife-forestry conflicts. Consequently, understanding the drivers of their foraging behaviour is crucial for mitigating such conflicts. Management of moose in large parts of its range currently largely ...
    • Volume estimation of soil stored in agricultural terrace systems: a geomorphometric approach 

      Cucchiaro, Sara; Paliaga, G; Fallu, Daniel; Pears, Ben; Walsh, Kevin; Zhao, P; Van Oost, Kristof; Snape, Lisa; Lang, Andreas; Brown, Antony; Tarolli, Paolo (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-09-06)
      High-resolution topographic (HRT) techniques allow the mapping and characterization of geomorphological features with wide-ranging perspectives at multiple scales. We can exploit geomorphometric information in the study of the most extensive and common landforms that humans have ever produced: agricultural terraces. We can only develop an understanding of these historical landform through in-depth ...
    • Gibbosporina cyanea (Pannariaceae), a new bipartite cyanolichen from Sri Lanka with comparisons to related palaeotropical cyanogenera. 

      Elvebakk, Arve (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-07-30)
      Gibbosporina cyanea is described here as new to science, based on its holotype collected in Sri Lanka in the 1860s. The species is a bipartite cyanolichen in contrast to all other known Gibbosporina species, which are tripartites. The species appears to have evolved through cephalodia emancipation followed by divergence. Phyllidia indicate a cephalodiate evolutionary origin with a continued function ...
    • Assessing environmental DNA metabarcoding and camera trap surveys as complementary tools for biomonitoring of remote desert water bodies 

      Mas-Carrió, Eduard; Schneider, Judith; Nasanbat, Battogtokh; Ravchig, Samiya; Buxton, Mmabaledi; Nyamukondiwa, Casper; Stoffel, Céline; Augugliaro, Claudio; Ceacero, Francisco; Taberlet, Pierre Robert Michel; Glaizot, Olivier; Christe, Philippe; Fumagalli, Luca (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-12-29)
      Biodiversity assessments are indispensable tools for planning and monitoring conservation strategies. Camera traps (CT) are widely used to monitor wildlife and have proven their usefulness. Environmental DNA (eDNA)-based approaches are increasingly implemented for biomonitoring, combining sensitivity, high taxonomic coverage and resolution, non-invasiveness and easiness of sampling, but remain ...

    • The bear-berry connection: Ecological and management implications of brown bears' food habits in a highly touristic protected area 

      García-Rodríguez, Alberto; Selva, Nuria; Zwijacz-Kozica, Tomasz; Albrecht, Jörg; Lionnet, Clement; Rioux, Delphine; Taberlet, Pierre Robert Michel; De Barba, Marta (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-11-08)
      Diet studies are essential to understand animal ecology and ecosystem dynamics, especially in the case of large omnivores. These studies are particularly relevant in areas where human disturbance is intense and, thus, species dietary patterns might change due to the easy accessibility of food resources of human origin, which may hinder the ecosystem services these species provide. We assessed the ...

    • Ancient DNA, Lipid Biomarkers and Palaeoecological Evidence Reveals Construction and Life on early Medieval Lake Settlements 

      Brown, Antony; van Hardenbroek, Maarten; Fonville, Thierry; Davies, Kimberley L.; Mackay, Helen; Murray, E; Head, Katie; Barratt, Phil; McCormick, F; Ficetola, Fransesco Gentil; Henderson, Andrew; Crone, Anne; Cavers, G; Langdon, Peter G.; Whitehouse, Nicki J.; Pirrie, Duncan; Alsos, Inger Greve; Gielly, L (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-06-03)
      Direct evidence of ancient human occupation is typically established through archaeological excavation. Excavations are costly and destructive, and practically impossible in some lake and wetland environments. We present here an alternative approach, providing direct evidence from lake sediments using DNA metabarcoding, steroid lipid biomarkers (bile acids) and from traditional environmental analyses. ...
    • Soil organic carbon stabilization mechanisms and temperature sensitivity in old terraced soils 

      Zhao, Pengzhi; Fallu, Daniel; Cucchiaro, Sara; Tarolli, Paolo; Waddington, Clive; Cockroft, David; Snape, Lisa; Lang, Andreas; Dötterl, Sebastian; Brown, Antony; Van Oost, Kristof (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-12-08)
      Being the most common human-created landforms, terrace construction has resulted in an extensive perturbation of the land surface. However, our mechanistic understanding of soil organic carbon (SOC) (de-)stabilization mechanisms and the persistence of SOC stored in terraced soils is far from complete. Here we explored the factors controlling SOC stability and the temperature sensitivity (<i>Q</i>< ...

    • Stone Age dwellings, sites and environment in coastal northern Norway: surveys and documentation of house-pit sites 

      Skandfer, Marianne; Damm, Charlotte Brysting; Gjerde, Jan Magne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The northernmost parts of Europe has a large number of sites with Stone Age house-pits, the majority of which date from c. 5000 BC onwards. Remarkably, the remains of these dwellings are many places still visible on the surface. In northern Norway, such dwellings concentrate in the coastal areas, with a more limited number found on inland sites. In order to use these in analyses of settlement duration, ...
    • The medieval stockfish trade: a maritime perspective from northern Norway 

      Wickler, Stephen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Life in northern Norway has been dependent on the sea and marine resources since initial settlement following the retreating ice at least 11,500 years ago. Small islands have played a significant role for maritime communities since the Mesolithic when occupation of offshore islands reflected the maritime orientation of hunter‑gatherer settlement. Although settlement along the coast, including ...
    • Twilight foraging enables European shags to survive the winter across their latitudinal range 

      Moe, Børge; Daunt, Francis; Bråthen, Vegard Sandøy; Barrett, Robert; Ballesteros, Manuel; Bjørnstad, Oskar; Bogdanova, Maria I.; Dehnhard, Nina; Erikstad, Kjell E.; Follestad, Arne; Gíslason, Sindri; Hallgrimsson, Gunnar Thor; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon; Newell, Mark; Petersen, Aevar; Phillips, Richard A.; Ragnarsdóttir, Sunna Björk; Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Åström, Jens; Wanless, Sarah; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-14)
      Species breeding at high latitudes face a significant challenge of surviving the winter. Such conditions are particularly severe for diurnal marine endotherms such as seabirds. A critical question is therefore what behavioural strategies such species adopt to maximise survival probability. We tested 3 hypotheses: (1) they migrate to lower latitudes to exploit longer day length (‘sun-chasing’), (2) ...

    • Hemispheric asymmetry in ocean change and the productivity of ecosystem sentinels 

      Sydeman, William J.; Schoeman, David S.; Thompson, Sarah Ann; Hoover, Brian A.; García-Reyes, Marisol; Daunt, Francis; Agnew, Philippa; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Barbraud, Christophe; Barrett, Robert; Becker, Peter H.; Bell, Elisabeth; Boersma, P. Dee; Bouwhuis, Sandra; Cannell, Belinda; Crawford, Robert J. M.; Dann, Peter; Delord, Karine; Elliot, Graeme; Erikstad, Kjell E.; Flint, Elizabeth; Furness, Robert W.; Harris, Michael P.; Hatch, Scott; Hilwig, Kara; Hinke, Jefferson T.; Jahncke, Jaime; Mills, James A.; Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Renner, Heather; Sherley, Richard B.; Surman, Christopher; Taylor, Graeme; Thayer, Julie A.; Trathan, Phil N.; Velarde, Enriqueta; Walker, Kath; Wanless, Sarah; Warzybok, Pete; Watanuki, Yutaka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-05-28)
      Climate change and other human activities are causing profound effects on marine ecosystem productivity. We show that the breeding success of seabirds is tracking hemispheric differences in ocean warming and human impacts, with the strongest effects on fish-eating, surface-foraging species in the north. Hemispheric asymmetry suggests the need for ocean management at hemispheric scales. For the north, ...
    • Bristling at windows: Subversion through heterodox mythology 

      Suyono, Jillian Toshie (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-11-26)
      This thesis is a narrative of an artistic development, drawing on the intersections of meaninglessness and meaning, as well as strategies to resist capitalist recuperation. The narrative moves from the absurd in art to the society of the spectacle through the philosophies of Albert Camus and Guy Debord, then proceeds to examine the works of Scott Walker, Tetsuya Ishida, Michio Fukuoka and Lawrence ...
