    • Maskulinitet og trofejakt i Arktis 

      Aarekol, Lena (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      From the late 1800s and until the protection of polar bears came into force in 1973, there were regular private hunting expeditions to the Arctic by boat, including several from Tromsø. In this article, I investigate how masculinity is manifested in specific empirical evidence: a trophy hunting expedition with the Sutton family that left from Tromsø in the summer of 1932. Using masculinity as a lens ...
    • The Meanings of Landscape: Historical Development, Cultural Frames, Linguistic Variation, and Antonyms 

      Bigell, Werner; Chang, Cheng (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014)

      Niemi, Anja Roth; Kjellman, Erik; Oppvang, Janne; Nergaard, Ragnhild Holten (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2014)
    • Microsatellite markers for Heracleum persicum (Apiaceae) and allied taxa: application of next-generation sequencing to develop genetic resources for invasive species management 

      Rijal, Dilli Prasad; Falahati-Anbaran, Mohsen; Alm, Torbjørn; Alsos, Inger Greve (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014)
    • Minimizing polymerase biases in metabarcoding 

      Nichols, Ruth V.; Vollmers, Christopher; Newsom, Lee A.; Wang, Yue; Heintzman, Peter D.; Leighton, McKenna; Green, Richard E.; Shapiro, Beth (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-24)
      DNA metabarcoding is an increasingly popular method to characterize and quantify biodiversity in environmental samples. Metabarcoding approaches simultaneously amplify a short, variable genomic region, or “barcode,” from a broad taxonomic group via the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), using universal primers that anneal to flanking conserved regions. Results of these experiments are reported as ...
    • Modelled drift patterns of fish larvae link coastal morphology to seabird colony distribution 

      Sandvik, Hanno; Barrett, Robert T.; Erikstad, Kjell E; Myksvoll, Mari Skuggedal; Vikebø, Frode Bendiksen; Yoccoz, Nigel Gilles; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon; Reiertsen, Tone; Skardhamar, Jofrid; Skern-Mauritzen, Mette; Systad, Geir Helge (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-05-13)
      Colonial breeding is an evolutionary puzzle, as the benefits of breeding in high densities are still not fully explained. Although the dynamics of existing colonies are increasingly understood, few studies have addressed the initial formation of colonies, and empirical tests are rare. Using a high-resolution larval drift model, we here document that the distribution of seabird colonies along the ...
    • Monument og minne. Mobilisering av fortid - argument for fremtid? 

      Aarekol, Lena (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2007)
      In 1977 a monument in memory of the Finnish immigrants was erected in Vadsø, the capital town of the county of Finnmark. The unveiling ceremony of the monument was an exceptional event, where the Norwegian king Olav, the Swedish king Carl Gustav and the Finnish president Uhro Kekkonen attended. The purpose of the monument was to pay tribute to the Finnish immigrants and their contribution to the ...
    • The moose throat bot fly Cephenemyia ulrichii larvae (Diptera: Oestridae) found developing in roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) for the first time 

      Isomursu, Marja; Nilssen, Arne C.; Oksanen, Antti (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2008-06-02)
      About fifty larvae of Cephenemyia ulrichii Brauer (Diptera: Oestridae), some of them nearly fullgrown third instars, were found in the throat of a roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) in June 2007 near Helsinki in Finland. The parasite is considered to be host specific, occurring only in the moose (Alces alces), and this paper is apparently the first report of a successful infestation in an aberrant host.
    • MtDNA ND2 sequence identifies Streaked Horned Lark (Eremophila alpestris strigata) from birdstrike to US Air Force F-15 at Portland International Airport, Oregon 

      Dove, Carla J.; Dahlan, Nor Faridah; Drovetski, Sergei V. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      The Streaked Horned Lark (SHL: Eremophila alpestris strigata) is the Northwest subspecies of the Horned Lark listed as endangered in Washington State, critical in Oregon, and is now being considered for listing as threatened by the US Fish & Wildlife Service. Some of the important breeding areas of SHL are associated with airports in western Washington and Oregon which raises concern over possible ...
    • Narratives of Sámi School History in Finland: The Histories of Assimilation Made Visible 

      Nyyssönen, Jukka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      This article analyses narratives that have been produced about the Sámi school experience in Finland. The sources consist of studies in Sámi school history and history of education in Finland, as well as in pedagogical studies made since the 1980s, comparing the narratives found in each case. The narrative of assimilation dominates the field for good, historically verifiable reasons. This genre of ...
    • Natural selection shaped the rise and fall of passenger pigeon genomic diversity 

      Murray, Gemma G.R.; Soares, André E.R.; Novak, Ben J.; Schaefer, Nathan K.; Cahill, James A.; Baker, Allan J.; Demboski, John R.; Doll, Andrew; Da Fonseca, Rute R.; Fulton, Tara L.; Gilbert, Marcus Thomas Pius; Heintzman, Peter D.; Letts, Brandon; McIntosh, George; O'Connell, Brendan L.; Peck, Mark; Pipes, Marie-Lorraine; Rice, Edward S.; Santos, Kathryn M.; Sohrweide, A. Gregory; Vohr, Samuel H.; Corbett-Detig, Russell B.; Green, Richard E.; Shapiro, Beth (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-17)
      The extinct passenger pigeon was once the most abundant bird in North America, and possibly the world. Although theory predicts that large populations will be more genetically diverse, passenger pigeon genetic diversity was surprisingly low. To investigate this disconnect, we analyzed 41 mitochondrial and 4 nuclear genomes from passenger pigeons and 2 genomes from band-tailed pigeons, which are ...
    • Naturbasert gårdsturisme - utfordringer og muligheter 

      Haugen, Marit S.; Brandth, Berit; Kramvig, Britt (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2010)
    • Negotiating with the public - a new role for ethnographic museums? 

      Bjørklund, Ivar; Brantenberg, Odd t; Eidheim, Harald (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Indigenous peoples, like the Sami of Fenno-Scandinavia, continue to be the object of museum display in ethnographic museums. Most of these exhibits focus predominantly on culture history via objects that reveal the quality and richness of indigenous cultures, with less emphasis on the political struggles that indigenous peoples are involved in. This paper is a reflection on the experiences in ...
    • New developments in biotechnology and IPR in aquaculture : are they sustainable? 

      Myhr, Anne Ingeborg; Rosendal, Kristin; Olesen, Ingrid (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      The objective of this chapter is to give an overview and analysis of the current trends and developments in biotechnology in aquaculture research and management. The technological developments along with structural changes in the aquaculture sector may affect access and intellectual property rights (IPR) regimes. These issues will be discussed in a wide perspective involving both short and long-term ...
    • New Developments in Russian Regulation of Navigation on the Northern Sea Route 

      Solski, Jan Jakub (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      The regime of navigation on the Northern Sea Route (NSR) is still largely based on legislation adopted by the Soviet Union, and features certain deviations in the way Russia’s international legal rights and obligations are implemented. In recent years the Russian Federation has demonstrated interest in revising NSR legislation with the preparation of one single comprehensive Federal Act on the NSR, ...
    • A new genus of horse from Pleistocene North America 

      Heintzman, Peter D.; Zazula, Grant D.; MacPhee, Ross D. E.; Scott, Eric; Cahill, James A.; McHorse, Brianna K.; Kapp, Joshua D.; Stiller, Mathias; Wooller, Matthew J.; Orlando, Ludovic; Southon, John R.; Froese, Duane G.; Shapiro, Beth (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-28)
      The extinct ‘New World stilt-legged’, or NWSL, equids constitute a perplexing group of Pleistocene horses endemic to North America. Their slender distal limb bones resemble those of Asiatic asses, such as the Persian onager. Previous palaeogenetic studies, however, have suggested a closer relationship to caballine horses than to Asiatic asses. Here, we report complete mitochondrial and partial nuclear ...
    • A new interpretation of the sedimentary cover in the western Siljan Ring area, central Sweden, based on seismic data. 

      Juhlin, Christoffer; Sturkell, Erik; Ebbestad, Jan Ove R.; Lehnert, Oliver; Högström, Anette; Meinhold, Guido (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Two new reflection seismic profiles over the Paleozoic successions of the western part of the Siljan Ring impact structure show a contrasting seismic signature. The more southerly c. 10 km long Mora profile reveals a highly disturbed structure, with only a few kilometers of relatively horizontally layered structures observed. However, interpretations of refracted arrivals in the data, that can be ...
    • New occurrences of Palaeopascichnus from the Stáhpogieddi Formation, Arctic Norway, and their bearing on the age of the Varanger Ice Age. 

      Jensen, Sören; Högström, Anette; Høyberget, Magne; Meinhold, Guido; McIlroy, Duncan; Ebbestad, Jan Ove R.; Taylor, Wendy L.; Agic, Heda; Palacios, Teodoro (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-18)
      We report on new occurrences of the late Ediacaran problematicum <i>Palaeopascichnus</i> (Protista?) from the Stáhpogieddi Formation, Arctic Norway. The stratigraphically lowest occurrences are in beds transitional between the Lillevannet and Indreelva members: the highest in the second cycle of the Manndrapselva Member, stratigraphically close to the lowest occurrences of Cambrian-type trace fossils. ...
    • A new species of the haematophagous genus Austroconops Wirth & Lee (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae: Leptoconopinae) from middle Cretaceous amber of Charente-Maritime, France 

      Dominiak, Patrycja; Szadziewski, Ryszard; Nel, Andre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-20)
      <i>Austroconops perrichoti</i>, a new species of biting midge (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae), is described from uppermost Albian-lowermost Cenomanian amber of Charente-Maritime (NW France), from three female specimens. A similar species, <i>Austroconops borkenti</i> Szadziewski & Schlüter, 1992, from Upper Cretaceous, Cenomanian, French amber of Anjou, is redescribed and illustrated. A key to males and ...
    • Nordlysobservatoriet 50 år 

      Holt, Olav; Solheim, Jan-Erik; Brekke, Asgeir (Book; Bok, 1980)
      Nordlysobservatoriet i Tromsø ble høytidelig innviet 6. august 1930. Et 25-års jubileum ble markert med en tilstelning 30. juli 1955. Ved 25-års jubileet i 1955 ble det utarbeidet et festskrift - men det var ikke penger til å få det trykt. Desto gledeligere er det at vi til 50-års jubileet får anledning til et spesialhefte av OTTAR for å beskrive Nordlysobservatoriets historie og virksomhet, et hefte ...
