    • Range shifts and global warming: ecological responses of Empetrum nigrum L. to experimental warming at its northern (high Arctic) and southern (Atlantic) geographical range margin 

      Buizer, B; Weijers, S; van Bodegom, PM; Alsos, Inger Greve; Eidesen, Pernille Bronken; van Breda, J; de Korte, M; van Rijckevorsel, J; Rozema, J (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Global change is expected to lead to range shifts of plant species. The ecological mechanisms underpinning these shifts are currently not well understood. Here, we compared ecological responses possibly underlying southern range contraction and northern range expansion of Empetrum nigrum, a key species in northern heathlands, which may be related to global change. We hypothesized a negative ...

    • Recent decline in body condition of departing Common Guillemots Uria aalge at Hornøya, North Norway 

      Barrett, Robert T. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2010)
      Since 1980, there has been large variation and a recent decline in the mass and body condition of Common Guillemot Uria aalge chicks departing from the nest site in NE Norway. This may be related to deterioration in the feeding conditions off the colony and is alarming considering the critically endangered status of the species in Norway. To measure body condition, earlier studies have caught, weighed ...
    • Reconstructing the invasion history of Heracleum persicum (Apiaceae) into Europe 

      Rijal, Dilli Prasad; Alm, Torbjørn; Jahodová, Šárka; Stenøien, Hans K.; Alsos, Inger Greve (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2015-11-06)
      Sparse, incomplete and inappropriate historical records of invasive species often hamper invasive species management interventions. Population genetic analyses of invaders might provide a suitable context for the identification of their source populations and possible introduction routes. Here, we describe the population genetics of Heracleum persicum Desf. ex Fisch and trace its route of introduction ...
    • Reconstruction as trope of cultural display. Rethinking the role of “living exhibitions” 

      Baglo, Cathrine (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      During the nineteenth and early twentieth century, a new and particularly widespread type of exhibition practice occurred all over the Western World, namely “living exhibitions”. They were characterized by the display of indigenous and exotic-looking peoples in zoological gardens, circuses, amusement parks, various industrial expositions, and major international expositions where representatives ...
    • Reindrift, hushold og kjønn: Sør-Troms på 1700-tallet, i historisk kildemateriale. 

      Storm, Dikka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Focusing on women’s and men’s participation, this article sheds light on the reindeer herding on the island of Hinnøya and in the southern areas of the county of Troms, Northern Norway, during the 18th and 19th centuries. In this region the Sámi and the Norwegian populations have been living side by side for a long period. In addition to hunting and gathering, the economy of the Sámi population was ...
    • Resilient communities? Collapse and recovery of a social-ecological system in Arctic Norway 

      Broderstad, Else Grete; Eythórsson, Einar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Fisheries-dependent Sami communities in the Norwegian Arctic face major challenges adapting and responding to socialecological changes. On a local scale, communities and households continually adapt and respond to interacting changes in natural conditions and governance frameworks. Degradation of the marine environment and decline in coastal settlements can move socialecological systems beyond ...

    • The role of sea ice for vascular plant dispersal in the Arctic 

      Alsos, Inger Greve; Ehrich, Dorothee; Seidenkrantz, Marit-Solveig; Bennike, Ole; Kirchhefer, Andreas; Geirsdottir, Aslaug (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-09)
      Sea ice has been suggested to be an important factor for dispersal of vascular plants in the Arctic. To assess its role for postglacial colonization in the North Atlantic region, we compiled data on the first Late Glacial to Holocene occurrence of vascular plant species in East Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Svalbard. For each record, we reconstructed likely past dispersal events ...

    • Sameleire i Tromsø som turistmål, fotomotiv og møteplass 

      Baglo, Cathrine (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2015)
      Sameleiren i Tromsdalen var lenge det mest besøkte turistmålet i Tromsø. Betydningen Tromsdalen og andre sameleire fikk som fotomotiv og møteplass i siste del av 1800-tallet, og hvordan dette skulle bidra til å bygge opp om interessen for reindriftssamenes levesett, er mindre kjent. Et resultat av den økte interessen var at sameleire ble gjenskapt i kommersiell og folkeopplysende øyemed, både nasjonalt ...
    • Sámi natural resource exploitation in a markebygd and its significance today? 

      Storm, Dikka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 1993)
      <i>Introduction</i>: In my investigation (Storm 1990) of the markebygd of Rásmirvuovdi/Gressmyrskogen on the island of Sážžá/Senja in the province of Romssa/Troms, I have reconstructed the settlement process from 1700 to 1900 AD. The focus was on the practice of Sámi resource exploitation – which resources and resource areas were used, and how the land was exploited – and what kind of Sámi settlements ...
    • Scented grasses in Norway - Identity and uses 

      Alm, Torbjørn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-12-23)
      Background: Some grass species are richer in coumarin and thus more sweetly scented than others. These have been eagerly sought after in parts of Norway, but the tradition has been weakly documented, both in terms of the species collected, their vernacular names, and uses. <p>Methods: Based on literature data and a substantial body of information collected during my own ethnobotanical field work, ...
