• Attuning to a changing ocean 

      Stenseth, Nils Christian; Payne, Mark R.; Bonsdorff, Erik; Dankel, Dorothy Jane; Durant, Joel Marcel; Anderson, Leif G.; Armstrong, Claire W.; Blenckner, Thorsten; Brakstad, Ailin; Dupont, Sam; Eikeset, Anne Maria; Goksøyr, Anders; Jónsson, Steingrímur; Kuparinen, Anna; Våge, Kjetil; Österblom, Henrik; Paasche, Øyvind (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The ocean is a lifeline for human existence, but current practices risk severely undermining ocean sustainability. Present and future social−ecological challenges necessitate the maintenance and development of knowledge ...
    • Biotic rescaling reveals importance of species interactions for variation in biodiversity responses to climate change 

      Vandvik, Vigdis; Skarpaas, Olav; Klanderud, Kari; Telford, Richard J.; Halbritter, Aud Helen; Goldberg, Deborah E (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Generality in understanding biodiversity responses to climate change has been hampered by substantial variation in the rates and even directions of response to a given change in climate. We propose that such context ...
    • Geochemical transition zone powering microbial growth in subsurface sediments 

      Zhao, Rui; Mogollon, Jose M; Abby, Sophie; Schleper, Christa; Biddle, Jennifer; Roerdink, Desiree; Thorseth, Ingunn Hindenes; Jørgensen, Steffen Leth (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      No other environment hosts as many microbial cells as the marine sedimentary biosphere. While the majority of these cells are expected to be alive, they are speculated to be persisting in a state of maintenance without net ...
    • Harvesting forage fish can prevent fishing-induced population collapses of large piscivorous fish 

      Soudijn, Floor H.; van Denderen, P. D.; Heino, Mikko Petteri; Dieckmann, Ulf; de Roos, André M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Fisheries have reduced the abundances of large piscivores—such as gadids (cod, pollock, etc.) and tunas—in ecosystems around the world. Fisheries also target smaller species—such as herring, capelin, and sprat—that are ...
    • Reconstruction of the birth of a male sex chromosome present in Atlantic herring 

      Rafati, Nima; Chen, Junfeng; Herpin, Amaury; Pettersson, Mats; Han, Fan; Feng, Chungang; Wallerman, Ola; Rubin, Carl-Johan; Péron, Sandrine; Cocco, Arianna; Larsson, Mårten; Trötschel, Christian; Poetsch, Ansgar; Korsching, Kai; Bönigk, Wolfgang; Körschen, Heinz G.; Berg, Florian; Folkvord, Arild; Benjamin Kaupp, Kaupp; Schartl, Manfred; Andersson, Leif (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The mechanisms underlying sex determination are astonishingly plastic. Particularly the triggers for the molecular machinery, which recalls either the male or female developmental program, are highly variable and have ...
    • Recurrent convergent evolution at amino acid residue 261 in fish rhodopsin 

      Hill, Jason; Enbody, Erik D.; Pettersson, Mats E.; Sprehn, C. Grace; Bekkevold, Dorte; Folkvord, Arild; Laikre, Linda; Kleinau, Gunnar; Scheerer, Patrick; Andersson, Leif (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The evolutionary process that occurs when a species colonizes a new environment provides an opportunity to explore the mechanisms underlying genetic adaptation, which is essential knowledge for understanding evolution and ...
