    • Barents Virtual University? : plans, problems and possibilities 

      Thorvaldsen, Steinar (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2001)
      The international introduction of Internet during the last 8-10 years has resulted in a reorganisation of the IT-sector. This change is overwhelming, to an extent only few experts could predict.Several influential policy reports recently have argued that our societies are changing from industrial societies into 'information societies', in which the creation and dissemination of knowledge is of ...
    • Barnegrava på Kveøy. Hvem var hun som lå der? 

      Sommerseth, Ingrid (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2012)
      I eldre jernalder (0–600 e. Kr) ble de døde gravlagt inntil gårdene. I flere av gravene finner vi eksotiske smykker og våpen som vitner om langveis kontakt med datidas Europa. Det er fra denne perioden hvor arkeologene finner flest barn gravlagt. Den nordligste barnegrava finnes på gården Hundstad i Kvæfjord.
    • Båtfunn fra middelalderen i Fiskvågvatnet. 

      Wickler, Stephen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2010)
      Rundt 1930 så guttungene Knut Rydning og Petter Borch Giæver noe de mente var vrakrester gjennom isen på to steder i Fiskvågvatnet. En rekke med spanter som tilhørte et større fartøy ble observert på vestsiden av vannet ved Prestlandet.
    • Bergli på Tromsøya: Bosetting fra eldre steinalder og tidlig metalltid 

      Grydeland, Sven Erik; Arntzen, Johan Eilertsen (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2014)
      Utgravningene på Bergli ble gjennomført i 2009 (Bergli 3) og 2010 (Bergli 1 og 2) og omfattet bosetting fra eldre steinalder til tidlig metalltid. Utgravningen av Bergli 1 og 2 resulterte i funn av 3180 slåtte steingjenstander fordelt på råstoffene flint, kvartsitt, chert og bergkrystall. Det ble i tillegg funnet seks hele slipte steinøkser samt 20 fragmenter. Materialet peker typologisk sett mot ...
    • Betraktninger om middelalderens Vágar basert på undervannsarkeologiske kilder 

      Wickler, Stephen; Falck, Tori; Nymoen, Pål (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2013)
      Vágar er først nevnt i det skriftlige kildematerialet som stedsnavn på slutten av 900-tallet, samt i sagatekstene med henvisning til viktige hendelser på stedet fra tidlig 1000-tall (Bjørgo 1982). Både skriftlige og arkeologiske kilder formidler med tydelighet at Vágar framsto som en sentral kjøpstad i Nord-Norge på 1200-tallet, men overgangen fra det som må ha vært et naturhavnområde og et ...
    • Biological introduction risks from shipping in a warming Arctic 

      Ware, Christopher; Berge, Jørgen; Jelmert, Anders; Olsen, Steffen M.; Pellisier, Loic; Wisz, Mary S.; Kriticos, Darren J.; Semenov, Georgy; Kwasniewski, Sawomir; Alsos, Inger Greve (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-12-14)
      Several decades of research on invasive marine species have yielded a broad understanding of the nature of species invasion mechanisms and associated threats globally. However, this is not true of the Arctic, a region where ongoing climatic changes may promote species invasion. Here, we evaluated risks associated with non-indigenous propagule loads discharged with ships' ballast water to the high-Arctic ...
    • Birch (Betula, Betulacae) bark horns and similar instruments in Norway. 

      Alm, Torbjørn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-11-30)
      Wooden horns wrapped in coiled birch bark (Norwegian: lur) have a long history in Norway, dating back at least to the 7th century AD. By the Vikings, they were used for various signalling purposes, e.g. during battles. More recent uses are generally peaceful—to celebrate the opening of fairs, announce bishop visitations etc. In the 19th century, playing such instruments was as a popular past-time ...
    • Black-legged Kittiwake Rissa tridactyla adults and chicks share the same diet in the southern Barents Sea 

      Thorvaldsen, Renate; Barrett, Robert T.; Pedersen, Torstein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      The Black-legged Kittiwake Rissa tridactyla population is declining throughout its North Atlantic range. In Norway, the species is classified as Endangered on the Norwegian Red List. Studies of diet are one important requirement for effective management of any species. Because it is easier to sample, chick diet has often been considered a proxy for adult diet in many seabird studies, but the ...

      Müller, Eike; Hlavackova, Iva; Svoen, Mildrid Elvik; Alsos, Inger Greve; Eidesen, Pernille Bronken (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-09-08)
      Premise of the study: Fifty candidate microsatellite markers, generated using 454 shotgun sequencing, were tested for the widespread arctic/alpine herb Silene acaulis (Caryophyllaceae). Methods and Results: Fourteen out of 50 markers resulted in polymorphic products with profiles that enabled interpretation. The numbers of alleles per locus ranged from two to six, and the expected heterozygosity ...
    • The Church, Pietist Mission and The Sámi. - An Account of a Northern Norwegian Mission District in the Early Eighteenth Century. 

      Storm, Dikka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The indigenous religion of the Sámi population came under strong pressure through the Pietist mission effort, which occurred during the first decades of the 18th century in Denmark-Norway. This study focuses on the complex religious situation in the areas of the Northern Norwegian counties of Nordland and Troms. The study uses a spatial approach to map the positions of the different institutions ...
    • Circumpolar Arctic vegetation: a hierarchic review and roadmap toward an internationally consistent approach to survey, archive and classify tundra plot data 

      Walker, D. A.; Daniels, F.J.A.; Alsos, Inger Greve; Bhatt, U S; Breen, A L; Buchhorn, M; Bultmann, H; Druckenmiller, L A; Edwards, M E; Ehrich, Dorothee; Epstein, Howard E.; Gould, W.A.; Ims, Rolf Anker; Meltofte, H; Raynolds, M. K.; Sibik, J; Talbot, SS; Webber, P. J. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-05-10)
      Satellite-derived remote-sensing products are providing a modern circumpolar perspective of Arctic vegetation and its changes, but this new view is dependent on a long heritage of ground-based observations in the Arctic. Several products of the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna are key to our current understanding.Wereview aspects of the PanArctic Flora, the Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation ...
    • Circumpolar dynamics of a marine top-predator track ocean warming rates. 

      Descamps, Sebastian; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Barrett, Robert T.; Irons, D.; Merkel, Flemming; Robertson, Gregory J.; Yoccoz, Nigel Gilles; Mallory, Mark L.; Montevecchi, William A.; Boertmann, D.; Artukhin, Yuri; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; Erikstad, Kjell E.; Gilchrist, H. Grant; Labansen, Aili; Lorentsen, Svein Håkon; Mosbech, Anders; Olsen, Bergur; Petersen, Aevar; Rail, Jean-Francois; Renner, Heather M.; Strøm, H.; Systad, Geir Helge; Wilhelm, Sabina I.; Zelenskaya, Larisa (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-04-07)
      Global warming is a nonlinear process, and temperature may increase in a stepwise manner. Periods of abrupt warming can trigger persistent changes in the state of ecosystems, also called regime shifts. The responses of organisms to abrupt warming and associated regime shifts can be unlike responses to periods of slow or moderate change. Understanding of nonlinearity in the biological responses to ...
    • Climate change, non-indigenous species and shipping: assessing the risk of species introduction to a high-Arctic archipelago 

      Ware, Christopher; Berge, Jørgen; Sundet, Jan Henry; Kirkpatrick, JB; Coutts, A.D.M.; Jelmert, Anders; Olsen, SM; Floerl, O; Wisz, Mary S.; Alsos, Inger Greve (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Aim: Anticipated changes in the global ocean climate will affect the vulnerability of marine ecosystems to the negative effects of non-indigenous species (NIS). In the Arctic, there is a need to better characterize present and future marine biological introduction patterns and processes. We use a vector-based assessment to estimate changes in the vulnerability of a high-Arctic archipelago to marine ...
    • Climate fluctuations and differential survival of bridled and non-bridled Common Guillemots Uria aalge 

      Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Erikstad, Kjell E; Barrett, Robert T; Sandvik, Hanno; Yoccoz, Nigel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012-06-22)
      Climate fluctuations and its effects on ecological processes are evident in most areas worldwide but whether such climatic effects are induced phenotypic plasticity or whether animals adapt to the new environment through micro‐evolutionary processes is poorly known. In this study we have analyzed long‐term data (22 years) on the relationship between climatic fluctuations and the adult survival of ...
