  • Vandvik, Vigdis; Måren, Inger Elisabeth; Ndangalasi, Henry J.; Taplin, James; Mbago, Frank; Lovett, Jon C. (Journal article, Ecological Society of America, 2014-08-11)
    Monitoring of the ecological efficiency of different restoration and mitigation measures is important to inform decision-making but can be challenging, especially in remote and low-resource settings. Species composition ...
  • Paulsen, Torbjørn Rage; Högstedt, Göran; Ken, Thompson; Vandvik, Vigdis; Eliassen, Sigrunn (Journal article, Wiley, 2014-09-16)
    1. The water-impermeable seed coat of ‘hard’ seeds is commonly considered a dormancy trait. Seed smell is, however, strongly correlated with seed water content, and hard seeds are therefore olfactionally ...
  • Telford, Richard J.; Vandvik, Vigdis; Birks, Harry John Betteley (Peer reviewed; Journal article, American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2006)
    In contrast with macroorganisms, whose geographical ranges are typically restricted, many microbial species appear to have cosmopolitan distributions. This observation has been explained as a consequence of ubiquitous ...
  • Vandvik, Vigdis; Goldberg, Deborah E. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, Opulus Press, 2005-07)
    In recent years, a considerable research effort has gone into studying how dispersal might affect the diversity of local communities. While this general topic has received attention from theoretical and empirical ecologists ...
  • Vandvik, Vigdis; Vange, Vibekke (Journal article; Peer reviewed, Opulus Press, 2003)
    We investigated germination responses and seed recruitment in the clonal grassland herb Knautia arvensis (Dipsacaceae) throughout the species’ distributional range in Norway. Four predicted relationships between germination ...
  • Bargmann, Tessa; Måren, Inger Elisabeth; Vandvik, Vigdis (Journal article, Wiley, 2014-05-02)
    Question: What is the impact of the fire cues smoke and ash on seed germination of important functional groups in the heathland system, namely ericads, herbs and graminoids? We predict that if germination from heathland ...
  • Vandvik, Vigdis; Töpper, Joachim Paul; Cook, Zoë; Daws, Matthew I.; Heegaard, Einar; Måren, Inger Elisabeth; Velle, Liv Guri (Journal article, Royal Society, 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 ...
  • Vandvik, Vigdis; Birks, Harry John Betteley (Journal article; Peer reviewed, Opulus Press, 2002)
    Four classes of functional and morphological plant traits (FMT) – established strategies (the CSR scheme sensu Grime 1979), life-forms (sensu Raunkiaer 1934), morphology, and regenerative strategies – are used as tools for ...
  • Vandvik, Vigdis (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2002-06-04)
    In this thesis I examine community patterns and the effects of disturbances on these patterns within successional subalpine grasslands at summer farms in Norway. On a broad scale, I investigate how environment, land-use ...
  • Telford, Richard J.; Vandvik, Vigdis; Birks, Harry John Betteley (Peer reviewed; Journal article, American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2007)
    Pither argues that the relationship we found between regional species-richness maxima and modal lake-pH is expected because both values are constrained by the regional pH range and therefore cannot be interpreted as a ...
  • Vandvik, Vigdis; Goldberg, Deborah E. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, Published for the American Society of Naturalists by the University of Chicago Press, 2006)
    Metacommunity theory suggests a potentially important role for dispersal in diversity maintenance at local, as well as regional, scales. In addition, propagule addition experiments have shown that dispersal often limits ...
