      1. Climate change is a world‐wide threat to biodiversity and ecosystem structure, functioning and services. To understand the underlying drivers and mechanisms, and to predict the consequences for nature and people, we ...
    • Introducing the index-based ecological condition assessment framework (IBECA) 

      Jakobsson, Simon; Evju, Marianne; Framstad, Erik; Imbert, Alexis; Lyngstad, Anders; Sickel, Hanne; Sverdrup-Thygeson, Anne; Töpper, Joachim Paul; Vandvik, Vigdis; Velle, Liv Guri; Aarrestad, Per Arild; Nybø, Signe (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Sustainable nature management and ecosystem conservation depends critically on scientifically sound and stakeholder-relevant analytical frameworks for monitoring and assessing ecological condition. Several general frameworks ...
    • Management-driven evolution in a domesticated ecosystem 

      Vandvik, Vigdis; Töpper, Joachim Paul; Cook, Zoë; Daws, Matthew I.; Heegaard, Einar; Måren, Inger Elisabeth; Velle, Liv Guri (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-02-12)
      Millennia of human land-use have resulted in the widespread occurrence of what have been coined ‘domesticated ecosystems’. The anthropogenic imprints on diversity, composition, structure and functioning of such systems are ...
    • Plastic Population Effects and Conservative Leaf Traits in a Reciprocal Transplant Experiment Simulating Climate Warming in the Himalayas 

      Cui, Haijun; Töpper, Joachim Paul; Yang, Yan; Vandvik, Vigdis; Wang, Genxu (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-07-30)
      Climate warming poses considerable challenges for alpine plant species, especially for competitively inferior ones with resource-conservative adaptations to cold climates. The Himalayas are warming at rates considerably ...
    • Predicting and assessing climate-change impacts on the population dynamics of alpine and lowland forbs 

      Töpper, Joachim Paul (Doctoral thesis, 2015-05-29)
      Background and aims: Global climate change is already affecting plant species worldwide. The global rise in temperatures and regional changes in precipitation are predicted to continue throughout the century. Therefore, ...
    • The Response of Heterotrophic Prokaryote and Viral Communities to Labile Organic Carbon Inputs Is Controlled by the Predator Food Chain Structure 

      Sandaa, Ruth-Anne; Pree, Bernadette; Larsen, Aud; Våge, Selina; Tøpper, Birte; Töpper, Joachim Paul; Thyrhaug, Runar; Thingstad, Tron Frede (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-08-23)
      Factors controlling the community composition of marine heterotrophic prokaryotes include organic-C, mineral nutrients, predation, and viral lysis. Two mesocosm experiments, performed at an Arctic location and bottom-up ...
    • Seed banks are biodiversity reservoirs: species–area relationships above versus below ground 

      Vandvik, Vigdis; Klanderud, Kari; Meineri, Eric Pierre F; Måren, Inger Elisabeth; Töpper, Joachim Paul (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-05-26)
      Soil seed banks offer plants the possibility to disperse through time. This has implications for population and community dynamics, as recognised by ecological and evolutionary theory. In contrast, the conservation and ...
    • Setting reference levels and limits for good ecological condition in terrestrial ecosystems – Insights from a case study based on the IBECA approach 

      Jakobsson, Simon; Töpper, Joachim Paul; Evju, Marianne; Framstad, Erik; Lyngstad, Anders; Pedersen, Bård; Sickel, Hanne; Sverdrup-Thygeson, Anne; Vandvik, Vigdis; Velle, Liv Guri; Aarrestad, Per Arild; Nybø, Signe (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-09)
      Effective evidence-based nature conservation and habitat management relies on developing and refining our methodological toolbox for detecting critical ecological changes at an early stage. This requires not only optimizing ...
