      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 ...
    • 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 ...
