  • Whose Settler Colonial State? Arctic Railway, Changing State Space and Settler Self-Indigenization in Northern Finland 

    Junka-Aikio, Laura (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-08-01)
    Settler colonial theory has effectively highlighted the continuity of colonial structures, but less attention has been paid on how also the settler state has transformed over time, and how such changes have affected the manifold relationships between the state, the settlers and the natives. This article addresses trajectories of settler colonial change in Finland, building on theories of state ...
  • Frame Alignment Between Environmentalists and the Sámi in the Forest Dispute in Inari, Finland Until the 2000s—Competing Conservation Needs and Obstacles for Co-Living With the Non-Human 

    Nyyssönen, Jukka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-07-12)
    The cooperation between Sá mi actors and environmentalists in the resistance of loggings in the conflict over forestry in Inari, in Finnish Sá pmi, in the 2000s has been presented as a cohesive alliance, innovative in creating new political space and channels of influence. Looking more closely, there were foundational non-aligning factors causing friction to the alliance, relating to the legitimacy ...

  • When Older Males Sire More Ofspring—Increased Attractiveness or Higher Fertility? 

    Lifjeld, Jan Terje; Kleven, Oddmund; Fossøy, Frode; Jacobsen, Frode F.; Laskemoen, Terje; Rudolfsen, Geir; Robertson, Raleigh J. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-04-23)
    In birds with extrapair mating, older males usually have higher fertilization success than younger males. Two hypotheses can potentially explain this pattern: 1) females prefer older, and often more ornamented males, or 2) older males invest more in reproduction and fertility than younger males. Here we studied factors associated with age-related male fertilization success in a population of barn ...
  • Barrmaelia pseudobombarda (Ascomycota), a rare European species with a peculiar disjunct distribution 

    Mathiassen, Geir Harald; Granmo, Alfred; Rämä, Teppo (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-01-01)

  • "Kle av serken og dans spille naken". Betydninga av kjønn i tradisjonsmusikken. 

    Graff, Ola (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-07)
    This article attempts to investigate how Norwegian traditional music is gendered. There have been few such investigations in the past. Some songs are work songs and function as a tool to lighten the work itself. Each song is created for either men's work, or women's. Other songs describe the actual conditions for men or women. There exist, for example, some songs which illustrate how women had to ...
  • Psoroma nigropunctatum sp. nov., an alpine lichen in south-eastern Australia related to P. buchananii 

    Elvebakk, Arve; Elix, J.A. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-07)
    <i>Psoroma nigropunctatum</i> is described as new to science, based on collections from alpine and subalpine areas of the Australian Capital Territory, Victoria and New South Wales. It grows on soil or mosses on rock outcrops and in tussock grasslands. It had previously been misidentified as <i>Psoroma hypnorum</i>, but it is more closely related to <i>P. buchananii</i>. The two species have large ...
  • Psoroma inflatum, a new alpine lichen from New Zealand 

    Elvebakk, Arve (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-07)
    <i>Psoroma inflatum</i> sp. nov. is described from mountains in Canterbury and Otago in New Zealand’s South Island. It is related to <i>P. hypnorum</i>, but differs in having a strongly inflated and glossy thallus. The squamules are prostrate, ascending or erect, and form brown, coarsely coralloid patches. They lack a dorsiventral morphology and anatomy, in contrast to other Psoroma species, except ...
  • Den samiske bjørnekultuen - arkeologiske spor til samisk historie og religion. 

    Sommerseth, Ingrid (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021)
    This paper aims to present an ongoing research project about the Sámi bear graves in Norway. The paper focuses on bear graves related to burial customs and rituals associated with cavities. It also addresses the fact that, as can be seen from the many Rock carvings, dated from 8000–2000 BCE, the bear was often portrayed as a vital and significant animal to people in prehistoric times. The background ...

    van der Valk, Tom; Pečnerová, Patrícia; Díez-del-Molino, David; Bergström, Anders; Oppenheimer, Jonas; Hartmann, Stefanie; Xenikoudakis, Georgios; Thomas, Jessica A.; Dehasque, Marianne; Sağlıcan, Ekin; Rabia Fidan, Fatma; Barnes, Ian; Liu, Shanlin; Somel, Mehmet; Heintzman, Peter D.; Nikolskiy, Pavel; Shapiro, Beth; Skoglund, Pontus; Hofreiter, Michael; Lister, Adrian M.; Götherström, Anders; Dalén, Love (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-02-17)
    Temporal genomic data hold great potential for studying evolutionary processes such as speciation. However, sampling across speciation events would, in many cases, require genomic time series that stretch well back into the Early Pleistocene subepoch. Although theoretical models suggest that DNA should survive on this timescale1, the oldest genomic data recovered so far are from a horse specimen ...

    Vershinina, Alisa; Heintzman, Peter D.; Froese, Duane G.; Zazula, Grant D.; Cassatt-Johnstone, Molly; Dalén, Love; Der Sarkissian, Clio; Dunn, Shelby G.; Ermini, Luca; Gamba, Cristina; Groves, Pamela; Kapp, Joshua D.; Mann, Daniel H.; Seguin-Orlando, Andaine; Southon, John R.; Stiller, Mathias; Wooller, Matthew J.; Baryshnikov, Gennady; Gimranov, Dmitry; Scott, Eric; Hall, Elizabeth; Hewitson, Susan; Kirillova, Irina V.; Kosintsev, Pavel; Shidlovsky, Fedor; Tong, Hao-Wen; Tiunov, Mikhail P.; Vartanyan, Sergey; Orlando, Ludovic; Corbett-Detig, Russell B.; MacPhee, Ross D. E.; Shapiro, Beth (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-05-10)
    The Bering Land Bridge (BLB) last connected Eurasia and North America during the Late Pleistocene. Although the BLB would have enabled transfers of terrestrial biota in both directions, it also acted as an ecological filter whose permeability varied considerably over time. Here we explore the possible impacts of this ecological corridor on genetic diversity within, and connectivity among, populations ...
  • Comprehensive coverage of human last meal components revealed by a forensic DNA metabarcoding approach 

    Schneider, Judith; Mas-Carrió, Eduard; Jan, Catherine; Miquel, Christian; Taberlet, Pierre Robert Michel; Michaud, Katarzyna; Fumagalli, Luca (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-04-23)
    Stomach content analyses are a valuable tool in human forensic science to interpret perimortem events. While the identifcation of food components of plant and animal origin has traditionally been conducted by macro- and microscopical approaches in case of incomplete digestion, molecular methods provide the potential to increase sensitivity and taxonomic resolution. In particular, DNA metabarcoding ...

S.; Willner, Wolfgang; Wiser, Susan K.; Wohlgemuth, Thomas; Yamalov, Sergey; Zobel, Martin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-06-21)
    Motivation: Assessing biodiversity status and trends in plant communities is critical for understanding, quantifying and predicting the effects of global change on ecosystems. Vegetation plots record the occurrence or abundance of all plant species co-occurring within delimited local areas. This allows species absences to be inferred, information seldom provided by existing global plant datasets. ...
