The role of predation and food limitation on claims for compensation, reindeer demography and population dynamics
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-10)
1.A major challenge in biodiversity conservation is to facilitate viable populations of large apex predators in ecosystems where they were recently driven to ecological extinction due to resource conflict with humans. 2. Monetary compensation for losses of livestock due to predation is currently a key instrument to encourage human–carnivore coexistence. However, a lack of quantitative estimates ...
Demographic effects of extreme weather events: snow storms, breeding success, and population growth rate in a long-lived Antarctic seabird
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-12-23)
Weather extremes are one important element of ongoing climate change, but their impacts are poorly understood because they are, by definition, rare events. If the frequency and severity of extreme weather events increase, there is an urgent need to understand and predict the ecological consequences of such events. In this study, we aimed to quantify the effects of snow storms on nest survival ...
