Use of an Autonomous Surface Vehicle reveals small-scale diel vertical migrations of zooplankton and susceptibility to light pollution under low solar irradiance
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-10)
Light is a major cue for nearly all life on Earth. However, most of our knowledge concerning the importance of light is based on organisms’ response to light during daytime, including the dusk and dawn phase. When it is dark, light is most often considered as pollution, with increasing appreciation of its negative ecological effects. Using an Autonomous Surface Vehicle fitted with a hyperspectral ...
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 ...
