    • Has climate change resulted in a mismatch between the spring arrival of the Common Cuckoo Cuculus canorus and its hosts in North Norway? 

      Barrett, Robert T. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Analysis of spring arrival dates in North Norway showed advanced arrival of the Common Cuckoo Cuculus canorus but not of four of its most frequently used hosts. No evidence was found of a climate-driven mismatch that might contribute to the decline in the Norwegian Cuckoo population.

      Aarekol, Lena (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014)
    • High-throughput sequencing of African chikanda cake highlights conservation challenges in orchids 

      Veldman, Sarina; Gravendeel, Barbara; Otieno, Joseph; Lammers, Youri; Duijm, Elza; Nieman, Aline; Bytebier, Benny; Ngugi, Grace; Martos, Florent; van Andel, TR; de Boer, Hugo (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-04-01)
      Chikanda is a traditional dish made with wild-harvested ground orchid tubers belonging to three orchidioid genera, Disa, Satyrium and Habenaria, all of which are CITES appendix II-listed. Identification of collected orchid tubers is very difficult and documentation of constituent species in prepared chikanda has hitherto been impossible. Here amplicon metabarcoding was used in samples of six prepared ...
    • Holocene floristic diversity and richness in northeast Norway revealed by sedimentary ancient DNA (sedaDNA) and pollen 

      Clarke, Charlotte; Edwards, Mary Elizabeth; Brown, Antony Gavin; Gielly, Ludovic; Lammers, Youri; Heintzman, Peter D.; Murguzur, Francisco Javier Ancin; Bråthen, Kari Anne; Goslar, Tomasz; Alsos, Inger Greve (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-30)
      We present a Holocene record of floristic diversity and environmental change for the central Varanger Peninsula, Finnmark, based on ancient DNA extracted from the sediments of a small lake (<i>sed</i>aDNA). The record covers the period c. 10 700 to 3300 cal. a BP and is complemented by pollen data. Measures of species richness, sample evenness and beta diversity were calculated based on <i>sed</i>aDNA ...
    • Holocene vegetation change in northernmost Fennoscandia and the impact on prehistoric foragers 12 000–2000 cal. a BP – A review 

      Sjøgren, Per Johan E; Damm, Charlotte Brysting (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-14)
      While single pollen records are widely used in reconstructing the environment for nearby prehistoric settlements, they are less helpful when addressing large‐scale issues of variation in human settlement patterns. In order to assess the impact of vegetation change on regional prehistoric settlement and subsistence patterns in an ecotone sensitive area, we inferred the general change in main vegetation ...
    • Human–environment dynamics during the Iron Age in the Lofoten Islands, Norway 

      Balascio, Nicholas L.; Wickler, Stephen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-01)
      Integrated archaeological and paleoenvironmental investigations provide long-term perspectives on human–environment interactions. In the North Atlantic region, early human settlements were established in marginal agricultural environments and were susceptible to various environmental stressors. The Lofoten Islands have had an important role in the history of this region, particularly during the ...
    • Hva er Nordområdemuseet? 

      Henriksen, Jan (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2009-11-30)
    • Hva gjør vi med reindriften? 

      Bjørklund, Ivar (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2013)
      Den samiske reindriften står i dag ved en skillevei – sammen med norske myndigheter. Veivalget handler om man fortsatt vil opprettholde den siste samiske kulturbærende næring eller om man vil handle på tvers av folkerettslige forpliktelser, lovfestede rettigheter og allmenn politisk anstendighet. Reindriftens skjebne er at den alltid har vært forvaltet og forstått gjennom de ideologiske oppfatninger ...
    • Hvor godt er karplantefloraen i Norge kartlagt? 3. Nordland 

      Alm, Torbjørn; Pedersen, Oddvar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Nordland is Norway’s second largest county, with an areal extent of 38,482 km 2 . In general, Nordland is reasonably well covered in terms of botanical exploration, with few blank areas. No flora covering the entire area has ever been compiled, but floristic surveys are available from several part areas, ranging in size from single localities to large districts. Still, the absence of a ...
    • Høyvikhaugen, Vadsø k. Sikringsundersøkelse og retting av skader på boplass fra eldre steinalder, og tuft og bosetningsspor fra yngre steinalder 

      Niemi, Anja Roth; Oppvang, Janne (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2015-07-31)
      I forbindelse med oppsetting av sirklingslys ved Vadsø Lufthavn ble det i 2007 forvoldt skade på tre automatisk fredete kulturminner. Riksantikvaren fattet vedtak om sikring av de skadete delene av lokaliteten, som innebar utgraving og dokumentasjon, revegetering og restaurering av kulturmiljø, samt miljøovervåking av bevaringsforholdene i en tuft. Resultatene fra undersøkelsene viser til ulike ...
    • Identification of bird species used to make a Viking Age feather pillow 

      Dove, Carla J.; Wickler, Stephen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-11-04)
      A grave containing the remains of a wooden boat was discovered in 1934 under a low mound in a bog at Øksnes in the Vesterålen islands of northern Norway. The boat grave dates to the 10th century in the Viking Age, and grave goods placed in the boat include an iron axe, a cowhide in which the body was wrapped, and pillow remains consisting of feather stuffing and a wool textile cover. A microscopic ...

    • Influence of night length on home range size in the northern bat Eptesicus nilssonii 

      Frafjord, Karl (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013-04)
      The northern bat Eptesicus nilssonii is widespread in Fennoscandia, with breeding populations well above the Arctic Circle. I studied this species at its extreme northern limit, at 69°N in Norway. I radio-tracked 17 bats from 2 maternity roosts during 2003–2006 to study the influence of the midnight sun and increasing lengths of darkness on activity (time spent out of roost) and home range size. ...
    • Influence of Reproductive Status: Home Range Size in Water Voles (Arvicola amphibius) 

      Frafjord, Karl (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-04-26)
      The relationship between home range and reproductive status of water voles (Arvicola amphibius) was studied by radio-tracking on an island off the coast of northern Norway in 2006–2009. The aim was to test assumptions about the species’ social structure relative to other microtines. Juveniles used fairly small ranges (about 400 m²), with no difference between males and females. Subadults, overwintered ...
    • Introduction. From depictions of race to revitalizing a people: aspects of research on the Sámi in Finland and Norway 

      Nyyssönen, Jukka; Lehtola, Veli-Pekka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In this special section of journal “Arctic and North” renowned and younger scholars from Finland and Norway take on the topic of research on the Sámi, from the era of “Lappology” to the era of “Sámi research”. The focus in the articles varies between research history, historiography and history of science. Thematically, the articles range from longer overviews of the historical ...
    • Is there anybody in there? Entomological evidence from a boat burial at Øksnes in Vesterålen, northern Norway 

      Panagiotakopulu, Eva; Buckland, Paul C.; Wickler, Stephen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-07-27)
      Although there are several well preserved Viking boat burials from Norway, until recently palaeoecological research on their context has often been limited. Research on fossil insect remains in particular can provide valuable forensic information even in the absence of an actual body. Here we present archaeoentomological information from a boat burial at Øksnes in Vesterålen, northeast Norway, an ...
    • Jordbruksboplasser fra bronsealder og førromersk jernalder i Nord-Norge: Veien videre 

      Arntzen, Johan Eilertsen (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2012)
      Nord-Norge er en langstrakt landsdel med store regionale forskjeller, både når det kommer til bosetting, ressursutnyttelse, landskap og klima. Landsdelen har ei lang historie som et grenseområde mellom ulike folkeslag. Det er også i Nord- Norge det nordlige grenseområdet for den nordiske jordbruksbosettinga i bronsealder og førromersk jernalder finnes. En stor mengde pollenanalyser av ...
    • Jordbruksbosetting i bronsealder og førromersk jernalder på Kveøya i Nord-Norge 

      Arntzen, Johan Eilertsen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Grunnlaget for kunnskapen vi i dag har om den tidlige jordbruksbosettinga i Norge er tett knyttet opp mot innføringa av maskinell flateavdekking som utgravingsmetode. Mens det metodiske gjennombruddet på landsbasis kom tidlig på 1980-tallet, tok det nesten 30 år før den første større utgravinga fant sted i Nord-Norge; på Kveøya i Sør-Troms. Resultatene fra dette prosjektet inkluderer omfattende ...
    • Kan stedsnavn vise vei? 

      Sommerseth, Ingrid (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2012)
      Allerede i 1928 skrev professor Konrad Nielsen i festskriftet til rektor Qvigstad at samiske stedsnavn er mettet med historie, de inneholder informasjon om ferdsel og bruk av områdene i nord. Nielsen skrev at det er forskjeller i innhold og betydning på samiske stedsnavn brukt av sjøsamene ved kysten og samiske navn som er brukt i innlandet og i fjellområdene hvor reinen hadde sine beiteområder og ...
