Hyperbenthic food-web structure in an Arctic fjord
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-17)
Current knowledge of the Arctic marine ecosystem is based primarily on studies performed during the polar day on the pelagic and benthic realms. Both the polar night and the hyperbenthic layer remain as substantial knowledge gaps in our understanding of the marine system at high latitudes. This study investigated the hyperbenthic food web in Kongsfjord, a high-latitude, ice-free fjord, in September ...
Pelagic food-webs in a changing Arctic: a trait-based perspective suggests a mode of resilience
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-27)
Arctic marine ecosystems support fisheries of significant and increasing economic and nutritional value. Commercial stocks are sustained by pelagic food webs with relatively few keystone taxa mediating energy transfer to higher trophic levels, and it remains largely unknown how these taxa will be affected by changing climate and the influx of boreal taxa. <i>Calanus</i> species store large quantities ...
