Breeding system, insect flower visitation, and floral traits of two alpine cerastium species in Norway
(The Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research, 1999)
The pollination and reproductive ecology of Saxifraga stellaris was investigated in alpine southwest Norway. A breeding system analysis, with performance of controlled crosses, revealed that S. stellaris is self-compatible ...
100-year waves in the Mozambique Channel
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-01)
Six-hourly significant wave height (SWH) data covering the period September 1957 to August 2002 is obtained from the ERA-40 reanalysis. This data, generated by ECMWF's own configured global WAM model, stems from the first ...
Hormonal and Neuropeptide Mechanisms of Appetite Control in Atlantic Salmon
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-25)
Tournaments and Optimality: New Results in Parameterized Complexity
(The University of Bergen, 2013-11-22)
Experimental and theoretical study of the flow, aggregation and deposition of gas hydrate particles
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-21)
Gas hydrate plugging is considered to be a very problematic topic during petroleum production and transportation. The phenomenon of hydrate plug formation involves inter-related effects related to different disciplines, ...
Treeline and vegetation dynamics in response to environmental changes in Nepal, the central Himalaya
(The University of Bergen, 2013-05-31)
Aims: To describe and evaluate patterns of vegetation response to ongoing environmental changes across climate-limited (alpine treeline ecotone) and humanmodified (temperate Himalayan oak forests) ecosystems in Nepal, ...
Environmental contaminants activate human and polar bear (Ursus maritimus) pregnane X receptors (PXR, NR1I2) differently
Background Many persistent organic pollutants (POPs) accumulate readily in polar bears because of their position as apex predators in Arctic food webs. The pregnane X receptor (PXR, formally NR1I2, here proposed to be named ...
Deformation bands in porous sandstones, their microstructure and petrophysical properties
(The University of Bergen, 2008-02-27)
Deformation bands are commonly thin tabular zones of crushed or reorganized grains that form in highly porous rocks and sediments. Unlike a fault, typically the slip is negligible in deformation bands. In this dissertation ...
Static and dynamic studies of foam and foam-oil interactions
(The University of Bergen, 2006-11-03)
Last-century vegetational changes in northern Europe. Characterisation, causes, and consequences
(The University of Bergen, 2011-11-04)
In the face of recent changes in environmental conditions and climate, longterm studies provide important insights into patterns and processes of vegetational change. In northern Europe, however, long-term studies are ...
