• #### The importance of Biotic vs. Abiotic drivers of local plant community composition along regional bioclimatic gradients ﻿

(PLOS, 2015-06-19)
We assessed if the relative importance of biotic and abiotic factors for plant community composition differs along environmental gradients and between functional groups, and asked which implications this may have in a ...

• #### The importance of feeding in determining the sensitivity of benthic invertebrates to future climate change in the tunicate species Ciona intestinalis ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2016-03-14)
Anthropogenically induced global climate change is one of the worlds biggest threats today, with marine ecosystems particularly vulnerable. In the future, the ocean temperature is expected to rise with 2 °C followed ...

• #### The importance of plant macrofossils in the reconstruction of Lateglacial vegetation and climate: examples from Scotland, western Norway, and Minnesota, USA ﻿

(Elsevier, 2003-03)
Lateglacial and early Holocene (ca 14–9000 14C yr BP; 15–10,000 cal yr BP) pollen records are used to make vegetation and climate reconstructions that are the basis for inferring mechanisms of past climate change and for ...

• #### The importance of social dimension and maturation stage for the probabilistic maturation reaction norm in Poecilia reticulata ﻿

(Wiley, 2013-10-01)
Maturation is an important event in an organism's life history, with important implications on dynamics of both wild and captive populations. The probabilistic maturation reaction norm (PMRN) has emerged as an important ...

• #### Important Differences and Potential Synergies between Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine, and the Isolation of Natural Products from Bretschneidera Sinensis ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2010-05-19)
Summary Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been an important medical system in China for thousands of years. Lately, certain techniques like acupuncture and herbal medicines are also becoming increasingly popular in ...
Master thesis
• #### Improbable but true: the invasive inbreeding ambrosia beetle Xylosandrus morigerus has generalist genotypes ﻿

(Blackwell, 2012-01)
The wide distribution and dominance of invasive inbreeding species in many forest ecosystems seems paradoxical in face of their limited genetic variation. Successful establishment of invasive species in new areas is ...
Journal article
• #### Improved quantitative calibration of rock physics models ﻿

(Geological Society, 2011-11)
In reservoir characterization, rock-physics models provide the link between seismic observables (density, compressional and shear wavespeeds) and reservoir parameters such as porosity, lithology and fluid saturation. ...
Journal article
• #### An improved workflow for image- and laser-based virtual geological outcrop modelling ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2013-03-15)
Photorealistic 3D models, representing an object’s surface geometry textured with conventional photography, are used for visualization, interpretation and spatial measurement in many disparate fields, such as cultural ...
Doctoral thesis
• #### Improvements and extensions to the configuration tools of the TaskManager HLT software in the ALICE experiment at CERN ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2007)
This thesis concerns work done to improve andextend software that is used to configure nodesand trigger software in HLT under the ALICEexperiment at CERN. HLT is a large computercluster that will be used to reduce data ...
Master thesis
• #### Improving Efficiency in Parameter Estimation Using the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo Algorithm ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2008)
This thesis investigates three approaches to improve the performance of the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo algorithm. The first approach enhances the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo by suppressing random walk in the Gibbs sampling using ...
Master thesis
• #### Improving Parallel Sparse Matrix-vector Multiplication ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2013-12-19)
Sparse Matrix-vector Multiplication (SMvM) is a mathematical technique encountered in many programs and computations and is often heavily used. Solving SMvM in parallel allows for bigger instances to be solved, and problems ...

• #### Improving the error rates of the Begg and Mazumdar test for publication bias in fixed effects meta-analysis ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2014-09-22)
Background: The rank correlation test introduced by Begg and Mazumdar is extensively used in meta-analysis to test for publication bias in clinical and epidemiological studies. It is based on correlating the standardized ...

Master thesis
• #### In situ fluid dynamics and CO2 injection in porous rocks ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2009-12-18)
Understanding multiphase fluid flow in porous rocks implies knowledge of fundamental properties such as wettability, relative permeability and capillary pressure. These parameters, as well as the extent of fractures and ...

• #### In situ hybridisering for deteksjon av cytokrom P450 1A i presisjonskuttede leverskiver (PCLS) fra atlanterhavstorsk (Gadus morhua) ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2016-06-01)
Marine arter og økosystemer blir utsatt for menneskeskapte stoffer fra en rekke ulike kilder. Siden de biologiske effektene for mange av disse stoffene ikke er godt karakterisert er det derfor behov for gode og effektive ...
Master thesis
• #### In the dark: a review of ecosystem processes during the Arctic polar night ﻿

(Elsevier Ltd., 2015-08-28)
Several recent lines of evidence indicate that the polar night is key to understanding Arctic marine ecosystems. First, the polar night is not a period void of biological activity even though primary production is close ...

• #### In-flight calibration of NOAA POES proton detectors - Derivation of the MEPED correction factors ﻿

(Wiley, 2015-11-25)
The MEPED instruments on board the NOAA POES and MetOp satellites have been continuously measuring energetic particles in the magnetosphere since 1978. However, degradation of the proton detectors over time leads to an ...

• #### The Inclusion Problem for Regular Expressions ﻿

(Springer, 2010)
This paper presents a new polynomial-time algorithm for the inclusion problem for certain pairs of regular expressions. The algorithm is not based on construction of finite automata, and can therefore be faster than the ...
