Habitats and movement patterns of white whales Delphinapterus leucas in Svalbard, Norway in a changing climate
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-24)
Background: The Arctic is experiencing rapid reductions in sea ice and in some areas tidal glaciers are melting and retracting onto land. These changes are occurring at extremely rapid rates in the Northeast Atlantic Arctic. The aim of this study was to investigate the impacts of these environmental changes on space use by white whales (Delphinapterus leucas) in Svalbard, Norway. Using a unique ...
Rodent population cycle as a determinant of gastrointestinal nematode abundance in a low-arctic population of the red fox
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-22)
We analyzed an 11-year time series (2005–2015) of parasite abundance for three intestinal nematode species in the red fox (<i>Vulpes vulpes</i>) as a function of the multi-annual rodent population cycle in low-arctic Norway, while correcting for other potential covariates that could influence prevalence and abundance. Rodents are paratenic and facultative intermediate hosts for the two Ascarididae ...
