      Questions: Which environmental factors influence fine-grain beta diversity of vegetation and do they vary among taxonomic groups? Location: Palaearctic biogeographic realm. Methods: We extracted 4,654 nested-plot ...
    • Functional traits of alpine plant communities show long-term resistance to changing herbivore densities 

      Vuorinen, Katariina Elsa Maria; Austrheim, Gunnar; Mysterud, Atle; Gya, Ragnhild; Vandvik, Vigdis; Grytnes, John Arvid; Speed, James David Mervyn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Herbivores shape vegetation by suppressing certain plant species while benefitting others. By thus modifying plant species functional composition, herbivores affect carbon cycling, albedo, vegetation structure and species' ...
    • A qualitative investigation of psychological need-satisfying experiences of a mobile-learning application: A Self-Determination Theory approach 

      Jeno, Lucas Matias; Egelandsdal, Kjetil; Grytnes, John Arvid (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Much research on mobile learning is cross-sectional or lacks a theoretical basis for investigating the mechanisms of mobile learning and achievement. This may be a concern as well-formulated theoretical frameworks allow ...
    • Rate-of-change analysis in palaeoecology revisited: a new approach 

      Mottl, Ondrej; Grytnes, John Arvid; Seddon, Alistair William Robin; Steinbauer, Manuel; Bhatta, Kuber Prasad; Felde, Vivian Astrup; Flantua, Suzette; Birks, Harry John Betteley (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Dynamics in the rate of compositional change (rate-of-change; RoC), preserved in paleoecological sequences, are thought to reflect changes due to exogenous (climate and human forcing) or endogenous (local dynamics and ...
