Evidence of effects of herbivory on Arctic vegetation: a systematic map protocol
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-27)
<p><i>Background</i>: Along with climate change, herbivory is considered a main driver of ecosystem change in terrestrial Arctic environments. Understanding how herbivory influences the resilience of Arctic ecosystems to ongoing environmental changes is essential to inform policy and guide sustainable management practices. However, many studies indicate that the effects of herbivores on plants and ...
Local land use associated with socio-economic development in six arctic regions
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-04)
The socioeconomic causes of land use change are complex. They are highly context dependent, but most often studied through case studies. Here, we use a quasi-experimental paired block design to investigate whether better access to wage income leads to more visible land use around 28 settlements in six regions of the circumpolar Arctic. We mapped visible land use on high-resolution satellite images ...
