• Simple models combining competition, defence and resource availability have broad implications in pelagic microbial food webs 

      Våge, Selina; Bratbak, Gunnar; Egge, Jorun Karin; Heldal, Mikal; Larsen, Aud; Norland, Svein; Paulsen, Maria Lund; Pree, Bernadette; Sandaa, Ruth-Anne; Skjoldal, Evy Foss; Tsagaraki, Tatiana Margo; Øvreås, Lise; Thingstad, T. Frede (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-09)
      In food webs, interactions between competition and defence control the partitioning of limiting resources. As a result, simple models of these interactions contain links between biogeochemistry, diversity, food web structure ...
    • Utilization of kelp-derived carbon sources by kelp surface-associated bacteria 

      Bengtsson, Mia M.; Sjøtun, Kjersti; Storesund, Julia Endresen; Øvreås, Lise (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2011-01)
      The surfaces of kelp are covered with bacteria that may utilize kelp-produced carbon and thereby contribute significantly to the carbon flux in kelp forest ecosystems. There is scant knowledge about the identity of these ...
