• Alpine garden plants from six continents show high vulnerability to ice encasement 

      Bjerke, Jarle W.; Elvebakk, Arve; Tømmervik, Hans (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-10-27)
      Icy surfaces impose challenges for northern societies, wildlife and agriculture. However, there have been relatively few studies of the impacts of anoxic ground ice on non-agricultural plants. During the winter of 2009–2010, an extreme winter warming event led to thick ground-ice layer development in the world’s northernmost botanical garden in Tromsø, in subarctic Norway, due to much rain on ...

    • Arctic trophy hunters, tourism and masculinities, 1827-1914 

      Aarekol, Lena (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-10-12)
      Trophy hunting in the Arctic happened in an intersection between tourism, expeditions and hunting. This study contributes to a discrete history of masculinity within the context of trophy hunting organized from North Norway and to a broader understanding of Arctic masculinity in general. As trophy hunting expeditions are primarily a male, even masculinist, tourist practice, an analysis from ...
    • Arkeologiske spor etter fonnejakt på villrein. 

      Sommerseth, Ingrid (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2013)
      Funn av ei 1000 år gammel jaktpil ved Bønntuva i Tromsø vitner om gamle samiske jaktmåter som vi finner i fjellene i Troms og Finnmark. Villreinen ble skutt mens den sto på snøfonnene på varme sommerdager. I dag forsvinner disse snøfonnene som følge av et varmere klima, og ny kunnskap om en unik jakt smelter dermed frem.
    • Arkeologiske undersøkelser i tilknytning til Mauken/Blåtind skytefelt 

      Arntzen, Johan Eilertsen (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2014)
      Utravingene I tilknytning til Mauken/Blåtind skytefelt omfattet tolv boplasslokaliteter fordelt over ett ca. 500 dekar stort fjellområde. Totalt 14 unike ildstedsstrukturer ble undersøkt. Utgravingene tok sikte på å åpne opp større arealer rundt ildstedene enn hva som har vært vanlig tidligere, noe som ga resultater i form av boligavgrensning for syv av lokalitetene. Det ble til sammen avdekt 280 ...
    • Avipoxviruses : infection biology and their use as vaccine vectors 

      Weli, Simon Chioma; Tryland, Morten (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      Avipoxviruses (APVs) belong to the Chordopoxvirinae subfamily of the Poxviridae family. APVs are distributed worldwide and cause disease in domestic, pet and wild birds of many species. APVs are transmitted by aerosols and biting insects, particularly mosquitoes and arthropods and are usually named after the bird species from which they were originally isolated. The virus species Fowlpox virus (FWPV) ...
    • Barents Virtual University? : plans, problems and possibilities 

      Thorvaldsen, Steinar (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2001)
      The international introduction of Internet during the last 8-10 years has resulted in a reorganisation of the IT-sector. This change is overwhelming, to an extent only few experts could predict.Several influential policy reports recently have argued that our societies are changing from industrial societies into 'information societies', in which the creation and dissemination of knowledge is of ...

    • Betraktninger om middelalderens Vágar basert på undervannsarkeologiske kilder 

      Wickler, Stephen; Falck, Tori; Nymoen, Pål (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2013)
      Vágar er først nevnt i det skriftlige kildematerialet som stedsnavn på slutten av 900-tallet, samt i sagatekstene med henvisning til viktige hendelser på stedet fra tidlig 1000-tall (Bjørgo 1982). Både skriftlige og arkeologiske kilder formidler med tydelighet at Vágar framsto som en sentral kjøpstad i Nord-Norge på 1200-tallet, men overgangen fra det som må ha vært et naturhavnområde og et ...
    • Biological introduction risks from shipping in a warming Arctic 

      Ware, Christopher; Berge, Jørgen; Jelmert, Anders; Olsen, Steffen M.; Pellisier, Loic; Wisz, Mary S; Kriticos, Darren J.; Semenov, Georgy; Kwasniewski, Sawomir; Alsos, Inger Greve (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-12-14)
      Several decades of research on invasive marine species have yielded a broad understanding of the nature of species invasion mechanisms and associated threats globally. However, this is not true of the Arctic, a region where ongoing climatic changes may promote species invasion. Here, we evaluated risks associated with non-indigenous propagule loads discharged with ships' ballast water to the high-Arctic ...
    • Birch (Betula, Betulacae) bark horns and similar instruments in Norway. 

      Alm, Torbjørn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-11-30)
      Wooden horns wrapped in coiled birch bark (Norwegian: lur) have a long history in Norway, dating back at least to the 7th century AD. By the Vikings, they were used for various signalling purposes, e.g. during battles. More recent uses are generally peaceful—to celebrate the opening of fairs, announce bishop visitations etc. In the 19th century, playing such instruments was as a popular past-time ...
    • Black-legged Kittiwake Rissa tridactyla adults and chicks share the same diet in the southern Barents Sea 

      Thorvaldsen, Renate; Barrett, Robert T.; Pedersen, Torstein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      The Black-legged Kittiwake Rissa tridactyla population is declining throughout its North Atlantic range. In Norway, the species is classified as Endangered on the Norwegian Red List. Studies of diet are one important requirement for effective management of any species. Because it is easier to sample, chick diet has often been considered a proxy for adult diet in many seabird studies, but the ...
