  • The rapid spread of the girdled snail Hygromia cinctella in New Zealand (Gastropoda: Helicoidea) 

    Salvador, Rodrigo Brincalepe; Ravalo, Lorenzo G. O.; Tennyson, Alan J. D. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022)
    The girdled snail Hygromia cinctella originates from southern Europe but has been introduced to countries in northern Europe and, more recently, to Aotearoa New Zealand. In the latter country, the girdled snail was first noted in 2015 in Wellington, but it has since spread to other regions of the North Island. We report here the rapid spread of this exotic species in New Zealand and record its ...

D.; Crowther, Thomas W.; Bailey, Joseph J.; Haesen, Stef; Klinges, David H.; Niittynen, Pekka; Scheffers, Brett R.; Van Meerbeek, Koenraad; Aartsma, Peter; Abdalaze, Otar; Abedi, Mehdi; Aerts, Rien; Ahmadian, Negar; Ahrends, Antje; Alatalo, Juha M.; Alexander, Jake M.; Allonsius, Camille Nina; Altman, Jan; Ammann, Christof; Andres, Christian; Andrews, Christopher; Ardö, Jonas; Arriga, Nicola; Arzac, Alberto; Aschero, Valeria; Leandro de Assis, Rafael; Barančok, Peter; Barrio, Isabel C; Barros, Agustina; Lenoir, Jonathan; Assmann, Jakob Johann; Bader, Maaike Y.; Bahalkeh, Khadijeh; Basham, Edmund W.; Bauters, Marijn; Bazzichetto, Manuele; Marchesini, Luca Belelli; Bell, Michael C.; Benavides, Juan C.; Alonso, José Luis Benito; Berauer, Bernd J.; Bjerke, Jarle W.; Björk, Robert G.; Björkman, Mats P.; Björnsdóttir, Katrin; Blonder, Benjamin; Boeckx, Pascal; Boike, Julia; Bokhorst, Stef; Brum, Bárbara N.S.; Brůna, Josef; Buchmann, Nina; Buysse, Pauline; Camargo, José Luís; Campoe, Otávio C.; Candan, Onur; Canessa, Rafaella; Cannone, Nicoletta; Carbognani, Michele; Carnicer, Jofre; Casanova-Katny, Angélica; Cesarz, Simone; Chojnicki, Bogdan; Choler, Philippe; Chown, Steven L.; Cifuentes, Edgar F.; Čiliak, Marek; Contador, Tamara; Convey, Peter; Cooper, Elisabeth (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-12-29)
    Research in global change ecology relies heavily on global climatic grids derived from estimates of air temperature in open areas at around 2 m above the ground. These climatic grids do not reflect conditions below vegetation canopies and near the ground surface, where critical ecosystem functions occur and most terrestrial species reside. Here, we provide global maps of soil temperature and bioclimatic ...
  • DNA metabarcoding reveals the importance of gelatinous zooplankton in the diet of Pandalus borealis, a keystone species in the Arctic 

    Urban, Paulina; Præbel, Kim; Bhat, Shripathi; Dierking, Jan; Wangensteen Fuentes, Owen Simon (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-12-22)
    Information about the dietary composition of a species is crucial to understanding their position and role in the food web. Increasingly, molecular approaches such as DNA metabarcoding are used in studying trophic relationships, not least because they may alleviate problems such as low taxonomic resolution or underestimation of digestible taxa in the diet. Here, we used DNA metabarcoding with ...
  • Polar bear harvest patterns across the circumpolar Arctic 

    Vongraven, Dag; Derocher, AE; Pilfold, Nicholas W; Yoccoz, Nigel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-05-12)
    Wildlife harvest remains a conservation concern for many species and assessing patterns of harvest can provide insights on sustainability and inform management. Polar bears (Ursus maritimus) are harvested over a large part of their range by local people. The species has a history of unsustainable harvest that was largely rectified by an international agreement that required science-based management. ...
  • Spatial distribution of Dechlorane Plus and dechlorane related compounds in European background air 

    Skogeng, Lovise Pedersen; Halvorsen, Helene Lunder; Breivik, Knut; Eckhardt, Sabine; Herzke, Dorte; Moeckel, Claudia; Krogseth, Ingjerd Sunde (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-01-10)
    The highly chlorinated chemical Dechlorane Plus (DP) was introduced as a replacement flame retardant for Mirex, which is banned through the Stockholm Convention (SC) for its toxicity (T), environmental persistence (P), potential for bioaccumulation (B) and long-range environmental transport potential (LRETP). Currently, Dechlorane Plus is under consideration for listing under the Stockholm Convention ...
  • A combined microbial and biogeochemical dataset from high-latitude ecosystems with respect to methane cycle. 

    Barret, Maialen; Gandois, Laure; Thalasso, Frederic; Martinez Cruz, K; Jauregui, Alejandra; Lavergne, C.; Teisserenc, R.; Aguilar, A; Nieto, O.; Etchebehere, C.; Dellagnezze, B.M.; Winkler, P.B.; Fochesatto, Gilberto J.; Tananaev, N.; Svenning, Mette Marianne; Seppey, Victor William Christophe; Tveit, Alexander; Chamy, R.; España, M.S.A.; Mansilla, A.; Van De Putte, Anton; Sweetlove, M.; Murray, Alison E.; Cabrol, Lea (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-11-04)
    High latitudes are experiencing intense ecosystem changes with climate warming. The underlying methane (CH<sub>4</sub>) cycling dynamics remain unresolved, despite its crucial climatic feedback. Atmospheric CH<sub>4</sub> emissions are heterogeneous, resulting from local geochemical drivers, global climatic factors, and microbial production/consumption balance. Holistic studies are mandatory to ...
  • Draft genome sequence data of a psychrophilic tundra soil methanotroph, Methylobacter psychrophilus Z-0021 (DSM 9914). 

    Rissanen, Antti J.; Mangayil, Rahul; Svenning, Mette Marianne; Khanongnuch, Ramita (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-10-21)
    Psychrophilic methanotrophic bacteria are abundant and play an important role in methane removal in cold methanogenic environments, such as boreal and arctic terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. They could be also applied in the bioconversion of biogas and natural gas into value-added products (e.g., chemicals and single-cell protein) in cold regions. Hence, isolation and genome sequencing of ...
  • People do care about the deep sea. A comment on Jamieson et al. (2020) 

    Armstrong, Claire W.; Aanesen, Margrethe; Hynes, Stephen; Tinch, Robert (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-09-23)
    In a paper in this journal entitled “Fear and loathing of the deep sea: why don’t people care about the deep sea?”, Jamieson et al. (2020) pose this question and answer it with many interesting perspectives from psychology, ocean literacy and philosophy. However, there is an inherent assumption in the question they ask that people do not care about the deep sea. In order to assess this assumption, ...
  • Insights into sugar metabolism during bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus L.) fruit development 

    Samkumar, Amos; Karppinen, Katja; Dhakal, Binita; Martinussen, Inger; Jaakola, Laura (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-03-03)
    Bilberry fruit is regarded as one of the best natural sources of anthocyanins and iswidely explored for its health-beneficial compounds. Besides anthocyanins, one of themajor attributes that determine the berry quality is the accumulation of sugars thatprovide sweetness and flavor to ripening fruit. In this study, we have identified 25 sugarmetabolism-related genes in bilberry, including invertases ...
  • Metabarcoding reveals high-resolution biogeographical and metaphylogeographical patterns through marine barriers 

    Antich, Adrià; Palacín, Creu; Zarcero, Jesús; Wangensteen, Owen S.; Turon, Xavier (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-12-29)
    Aim: It has been predicted that there should be concordance between biogeographical and phylogeographical processes structuring multi-species regional assemblages. We hypothesise that oceanographic barriers in the marine environment affect concomitantly the distribution and the connectivity of the marine biota, thus producing congruent biogeographical and phylogeographical structures. We also ...
  • Identifying seasonal distribution patterns of fin whales across the Scotia Sea and the Antarctic Peninsula region using a novel approach combining habitat suitability models and ensemble learning methods 

    Viquerat, Sacha; Waluda, Claire M.; Kennedy, Amy S.; Jackson, Jennifer A.; Hevia, Marta; Carroll, Emma L.; Buss, Danielle L.; Burkhardt, Elke; Thain, Scott; Smith, Patrick; Secchi, Eduardo R.; Santora, Jarrod A.; Reiss, Christian; Lindstrøm, Ulf Ove; Krafft, Bjørn Arne; Gittins, George; Dalla Rosa, Luciano; Biuw, Martin; Herr, Helena (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-12-16)
    Following their near extirpation by industrial whaling of the 20th century, the population status of Southern Hemisphere fin whales (SHFW) remains unknown. Systematic surveys estimating fin whale abundance in the Southern Ocean are not yet available. Records of fin whale sightings have been collected by a variety of organisations over the past few decades, incorporating both opportunistic data and ...
  • Elevated antioxidant defence in the brain of deep-diving pinnipeds 

    Martens, Gerrit A.; Folkow, Lars; Burmester, Thorsten; Geßner, Cornelia (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-12-16)
    While foraging, marine mammals undertake repetitive diving bouts. When the animal surfaces, reperfusion makes oxygen readily available for the electron transport chain, which leads to increased production of reactive oxygen species and risk of oxidative damage. In blood and several tissues, such as heart, lung, muscle and kidney, marine mammals generally exhibit an elevated antioxidant defence. ...
  • Environmental niche overlap in sibling planktonic species Calanus finmarchicus and C. glacialis in Arctic fjords 

    Weydmann-Zwolicka, Agata; Cottier, Finlo Robert; Berge, Jørgen; Majaneva, Sanna; Kuklinski, Piotr; Zwolicki, Adrian (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-12-08)
    Knowledge of environmental preferences of the key planktonic species, such as Calanus copepods in the Arctic, is crucial to understand ecosystem function and its future under climate change. Here, we assessed the environmental conditions influencing the development stages of Atlantic Calanus finmarchicus and Arctic Calanus glacialis, and we quantified the extent to which their niches overlap by ...
  • Identification of New Purpuroine Analogues from the Arctic Echinodermata Pteraster militaris That Inhibit FLT3-ITD+ AML Cell Lines 

    Ullsten-Wahlund, Sara; Petit, Guillaume; Isaksson, Johan Mattias; Hansen, Ida Kristine Østnes; Schneider, Yannik Karl Heinz; Jenssen, Marte; Li, Chun; Østnes Hansen, Kine (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-12-13)
    Isolation of bioactive products from the marine environment is considered a very promising approach to identify new compounds that can be used for further drug development. In this work we have isolated three new compounds from the purpuroine family by mass-guided preparative HPLC; purpuroine K-M. These compounds where screened for antibacterial- and antifungal activity, antibiofilm formation and ...
  • Inverse method applied to autonomous broadband hydroacoustic survey detects higher densities of zooplankton in near-surface aggregations than vessel-based net survey 

    Dunn, Muriel Barbara; Pedersen, Geir; Basedow, Sünnje Linnéa; Daase, Malin; Falk-Petersen, Stig; Bachelot, Loic; Camus, Lionel; Geoffroy, Maxime (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-11-10)
    Throughout all oceans, aggregations of zooplankton and ichthyoplankton appear as horizontal sound scattering layers (SSLs) when detected with active acoustic techniques. Quantifying the composition and density of these layers is prone to sampling biases. We conducted a net and trawl survey of the epipelagic fauna in northern Norway (70˚N) in June 2018 while an autonomous surface vehicle equipped ...
