    Aim An understanding of the non-breeding distribution and ecology of migratory species is necessary for successful conservation. Many seabirds spend the nonbreeding season far from land, and information on their distribution during this time is very limited. The black-legged kittiwake, Rissa tridactyla, is a widespread and numerous seabird in the North Atlantic and Pacific, but breeding ...
  • DNA Metabarcoding of Preservative Ethanol Reveals Changes in Invertebrate Community Composition Following Rotenone Treatment 

    Kjærstad, Gaute; Majaneva, Markus; Falahati-Anbaran, Mohsen; Topstad, Lasse; Finstad, Anders Gravbrøt; Arnekleiv, Jo Vegar; Ekrem, Torbjørn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-06-01)
    The botanical compound rotenone is extensively used to eradicate populations and reduce the negative impacts of freshwater invasive animals. The method is controversial as non-target organisms often are negatively affected, but these effects are highly variable among taxa and may be difficult to monitor on species-level as many invertebrates are challenging or costly to identify using morphology. ...

  • Genotyping-in-Thousands by sequencing panel development and application for high-resolution monitoring of introgressive hybridization within sockeye salmon 

    Chang, Sarah L.; Ward, Hillary G. M.; Elliott, Lucas Dane; Russello, Michael A. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-03-02)
    Stocking programs have been widely implemented to re-establish extirpated fsh species to their historical ranges; when employed in species with complex life histories, such management activities should include careful consideration of resulting hybridization dynamics with resident stocks and corresponding outcomes on recovery initiatives. Genetic monitoring can be instrumental for quantifying ...

  • MicroRNAs as Indicators into the Causes and Consequences of Whole-Genome Duplication Events 

    Peterson, Kevin; Beavan, Alan; Chabot, Peter J; McPeek, Mark A; Pisani, Davide; Fromm, Bastian; Simakov, Oleg (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-12-03)
    Whole-genome duplications (WGDs) have long been considered the causal mechanism underlying dramatic increases to morphological complexity due to the neo-functionalization of paralogs generated during these events. Nonetheless, an alternative hypothesis suggests that behind the retention of most paralogs is not neo-functionalization, but instead the degree of the inter-connectivity of the intended ...
  • Life before Stonehenge: The hunter-gatherer occupation and environment of Blick Mead revealed by sedaDNA, pollen and spores 

    Hudson, Samuel M.; Pears, Ben; Jacques, David; Fonville, Thierry; Hughes, Paul; Alsos, Inger Greve; Snape, Lisa; Lang, Andreas; Brown, Antony (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-04-27)
    The Neolithic and Bronze Age construction and habitation of the Stonehenge Landscape has been extensively explored in previous research. However, little is known about the scale of pre-Neolithic activity and the extent to which the later monumental complex occupied an ‘empty’ landscape. There has been a long-running debate as to whether the monumental archaeology of Stonehenge was created in an ...

  • When Older Males Sire More Ofspring—Increased Attractiveness or Higher Fertility? 

    Lifjeld, Jan Terje; Kleven, Oddmund; Fossøy, Frode; Jacobsen, Frode F.; Laskemoen, Terje; Rudolfsen, Geir; Robertson, Raleigh J. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-04-23)
    In birds with extrapair mating, older males usually have higher fertilization success than younger males. Two hypotheses can potentially explain this pattern: 1) females prefer older, and often more ornamented males, or 2) older males invest more in reproduction and fertility than younger males. Here we studied factors associated with age-related male fertilization success in a population of barn ...

  • "Kle av serken og dans spille naken". Betydninga av kjønn i tradisjonsmusikken. 

    Graff, Ola (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-07)
    This article attempts to investigate how Norwegian traditional music is gendered. There have been few such investigations in the past. Some songs are work songs and function as a tool to lighten the work itself. Each song is created for either men's work, or women's. Other songs describe the actual conditions for men or women. There exist, for example, some songs which illustrate how women had to ...
