    • Genetic response to human-induced habitat changes in the marine environment: A century of evolution of European sprat in Landvikvannet, Norway 

      Sanchez, Maria Quintela; Richter-Boix, Alex; Bekkevold, Dorte; Kvamme, Cecilie; Berg, Florian; Jansson, Eeva; Dahle, Geir; Besnier, Francois; Nash, Richard David Marriott; Glover, Kevin Alan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Habitat changes represent one of the five most pervasive threats to biodiversity. However, anthropogenic activities also have the capacity to create novel niche spaces to which species respond differently. In 1880, one ...
    • Next-generation field courses: Integrating Open Science and online learning

    • Optimal reproductive phenology under size-dependent cannibalism 

      Takashina, Nao; Fiksen, Øyvind (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Intra-cohort cannibalism is an example of a size-mediated priority effect. If early life stages cannibalize slightly smaller individuals, then parents face a trade-off between breeding at the best time for larval growth ...
    • The potential for cleaner fish-driven evolution in the salmon louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis: Genetic or environmental control of pigmentation?
