  • Feeding at the front line: Interannual variation in the use of glacier fronts by foraging black-legged kittiwakes 

    Bertrand, Philip; Strøm, Hallvard; Bêty, Joël; Steen, Harald; Kohler, Jack; Vihtakari, Mikko; Van Pelt, Ward; Yoccoz, Nigel Gilles; Hop, Haakon; Harris, Stephanie M.; Patrick, Samantha C.; Assmy, Philipp; Wold, Anette; Duarte, Pedro; Moholdt, Geir; Descamps, Sébastien (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-28)
    Tidewater glacier fronts can represent important foraging areas for Arctic predators. Their ecological importance is likely to change in a warmer Arctic. Their profitability and use by consumers are expected to vary in time, but the underlying mechanisms driving such variation remain poorly known. The subglacial plume, originating from meltwater discharge, is responsible for the entrainment and ...
  • Information Requirements under the Essential-Use Concept: PFAS Case Studies 

    Glüge, Juliane; London, Rachel; Cousins, Ian T.; Dewitt, Jamie; Goldenman, Gretta; Herzke, Dorte; Lohmann, Rainer; Miller, Mark; Ng, Carla A.; Patton, Sharyle; Trier, Xenia; Wang, Zhanyun; Scheringer, Martin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-05)
    Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a class of substances for which there are widespread concerns about their extreme persistence in combination with toxic effects. It has been argued that PFAS should only be employed in those uses that are necessary for health or safety or are critical for the functioning of society and where no alternatives are available (“essential-use concept”). ...
  • Environmental constraints, biological growth and fleet dynamics of a developing fishery: A model study of the Barents Sea snow crab (Chionoecetes opilio, Majidae) fishery 

    Hogrenning, Egil; Eide, Arne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-11-07)
    The snow crab (Chionoecetes opilio, Majidae) has recently entered the Barents Sea, and a crab fishery is developing. Information on how the crab appeared and where it is moving is limited. We study how the characteristics of the fleet may affect the further development of the fishery. A spatial model is constructed as a grid of cells given a carrying capacity for crab determined by environmental ...

  • Group bargaining in supply chains 

    Clark, Derek John; Pereau, Jean-Christophe (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-02-10)
    We consider a vertical supply chain in which a monopoly retailer produces a good by assembling a number of essential components each of which is owned by a monopoly. Rather than making the common assumption that the component price is set in the same way for each owner, we investigate the possibility that the retailer may profit by bargaining with some owners in a group, whilst others set their ...
  • Bioprospecting of Arctic marine microorganisms. Exploring microbial secondary metabolite production using the one strain-many compounds approach: isolation and characterization of secondary metabolites 

    Kristoffersen, Venke (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-12-20)
    <p>Natural products have been used by humans since ancient times as benefactors for improved health. Prior to modern medicine and chemistry, these compounds remained hidden in the plants, animals and other organisms used to heal inflammation, wounds, headache and stomachache among other conditions. Since the start of modern drug discovery with isolation of morphine in 1805, numerous natural products ...

This study investigated the effects of Lysekil wave power park (area 0.5 km2) on the abundance and carapace size of decapods at the Swedish west coast. For that purpose, decapods were caught with cages during four consecutive summers. Two types of ...
  • Issues of under-representation in quantitative DNA metabarcoding weaken the inference about diet of the tundra vole Microtus oeconomus 

    Neby, Magne; Kamenova, Stefaniya; Devineau, Olivier; Ims, Rolf Anker; Soininen, Eeva M (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-08-26)
    During the last decade, methods based on high-throughput sequencing such as DNA metabarcoding have opened up for a range of new questions in animal dietary studies. One of the major advantages of dietary metabarcoding resides in the potential to infer a quantitative relationship between sequence read proportions and biomass of ingested food. However, this relationship’s robustness is highly dependent ...
