Molecular phylogeny of bark and ambrosia beetles reveals multiple origins of fungus farming during periods of global warming
(BioMed Central, 2012-08-01)
<p>Background: Fungus farming is an unusual life style in insects that has evolved many times in the wood boring weevils named ‘ambrosia beetles’. Multiple occurrences of this behaviour allow for a detailed ...
Skipping-type migration in a small Arctic wader, the Temminck's stint Calidris temminckii
(Nordic Society Oikos, 2015-03)
By using morphometric data and geolocator tracking we investigated fuel loads and spatio-temporal patterns of migration and non-breeding in Temminck's stints Calidris temminckii. Body masses in stints captured at autumn ...
A new genus of Podonominae (Diptera: Chironomidae) in Late Eocene Rovno amber from Ukraine
(Magnolia Press, 2014-05-08)
The genus Palaeoboreochlus Baranov et Andersen, n. gen. is erected based on P. inornatus Baranov et Andersen, n. sp. described from a male found in Late Eocene Rovno amber. The new genus groups with Boreochlus Edwards in ...
Visions of the Invisible: Seventeenth- and Early Eighteenth-Century Emblems in Norway

Stable Isotope Evidence for Late Medieval (14th–15th C) Origins of the Eastern Baltic Cod (Gadus morhua) Fishery
(Public Library of Science, 2011-11-16)
Although recent historical ecology studies have extended quantitative knowledge of eastern Baltic cod (Gadus morhua) exploitation back as far as the 16th century, the historical origin of the modern fishery remains obscure. ...
Few, but useful garden plants known from Norwegian summer-farms
Opplysninger om bruk av hageplanter på norske setre er vanskelig å finne i norsk litteratur. Basert på herbariebelegg og feltnotater har det vært mulig å legge frem en oversikt. I tillegg til presset materiale, er det ...
Reconstructing the history of a fragmented and heavily exploited red deer population using ancient and contemporary DNA
(BioMed Central, 2012-09-26)
</p>Background: Red deer (Cervus elaphus) have been an important human resource for millennia, experiencing intensive human influence through habitat alterations, hunting and translocation of animals. In this study we ...
Modern and Contemporary Religious Medals and Medallic Art

Original specimens and type localities of early described polychaete species (Annelida) from Norway, with particular attention to species described by O.F. Müller and M. Sars
(Museum Victoria, 2014)
Early descriptions of species from Norwegian waters are reviewed, with a focus on the basic requirements for reassessing their characteristics, in particular, by clarifying the status of the original material and locating ...
Mitogenomic sequences and evidence from unique gene rearrangements corroborate evolutionary relationships of myctophiformes (Neoteleostei)
(BioMed Central, 2013-06-03)
<p>Background: A skewed assemblage of two epi-, meso- and bathypelagic fish families makes up the order Myctophiformes – the blackchins Neoscopelidae and the lanternfishes Myctophidae. The six rare neoscopelids show few ...
