The components of a food traceability system
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-03)
<p><i>Background</i>: Traceability of food products has become the focus of regional and national legislation, of many research and technical development initiatives and projects, and of many scientific articles. However, most of the scientific publications do not differentiate between the components of a traceability system, and those who do to some degree use inconsistent terminology and definitions. ...
Thermal behaviour of edible crab Cancer pagurus Linnaeus, 1758 in coastal Norway
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-02-26)
Ocean warming drives latitudinal shifts in the distribution of ectotherm species. The rate and magnitude of such shifts are constrained by physiology and behavioural thermoregulation. Here, we investigated the thermal preference and lower critical temperature (CTmin) in female edible crab <i>Cancer pagurus</i>, a decapod crustacean with an ongoing northward dispersal along the Norwegian coast. The ...
Characterization of the cecum microbiome from wild and captive rock ptarmigans indigenous to Arctic Norway
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-11)
Rock ptarmigans (<i>Lagopus muta</i>) are gallinaceous birds inhabiting arctic and sub-arctic environments. Their diet varies by season, including plants or plant parts of high nutritional value, but also toxic plant secondary metabolites (PSMs). Little is known about the microbes driving organic matter decomposition in the cecum of ptarmigans, especially the last steps leading to methanogenesis. ...
