The effect of fish behaviour and spatial structures on acoustic and trawl surveys
(The University of Bergen, 2007-12-14)
Time series of scientific survey estimates of fisheries resources are used to measure changes in stock size and composition. Standardization of sampling equipment and design is regarded crucial for reliable trawl and ...
Catch-and-release of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua): post-release behaviour of acoustically pretagged fish in a natural marine environment
(NRC Research Press, 2014-10-07)
Studying the sublethal effects of catch-and-release (C&R) is challenging, as there are several potential sources of bias. For example, if behavioural alterations immediately after the release event are to be studied, ...
SulfoSYS (Sulfolobus Systems Biology): towards a silicon cell model for the central carbohydrate metabolism of the archaeon Sulfolobus solfataricus under temperature variation
(Portland Press, 2009)
SulfoSYS (Sulfolobus Systems Biology) focuses on the study of the CCM (central carbohydrate metabolism) of Sulfolobus solfataricus and its regulation under temperature variation at the systems level. In Archaea, carbohydrates ...
On the ecology, toxicology, and phylogeny of cyanobacteria in Murchison Bay of Lake Victoria, Uganda
(The University of Bergen, 2008-06-04)
One of the major threats to Lake Victoria is eutrophication and an increasing proliferation of cyanobacteria. Many cyanobacterial species have the ability to produce toxic compounds (cyanotoxins), which can cause ...
Mesozooplankton distribution in Svalbard waters. Calanus spp. and its relationship to hydrographic variability
(The University of Bergen, 2008-02-06)
This thesis investigates mesozooplankton abundance, composition and distribution in Svalbard waters in relation to hydrography. Sampling was carried out in the archipelago of Svalbard mainly during summer and autumn ...
Trade-offs between growth and reproduction in wild Atlantic cod
(NRC Research Press, 2014-04-08)
Animals partition and trade off their resources between competing needs such as growth, maintenance, and reproduction. Over a lifetime, allocation strategies should result in distinct trajectories for growth, survival, and ...
Seedbank, Seedrain and Seedling Recruitment along Climate Gradients in Southern Norway
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-01)
Recruitment through seeds is a critical process in the life history of plants. Better knowledge about this process may be helpful in predicting species ranges and range shifts under climate change. In western Norway, ...
Trace metal concentrations in blue mussels Mytilus edulis (L.) in Byfjorden and the coastal areas of Bergen
(The University of Bergen, 2003)
Characterization of untranslated regions of the salmonid alphavirus 3 (SAV3) genome and construction of a SAV3 based replicon
(BioMed Central, 2009-10-27)
Salmonid alphavirus (SAV) causes disease in farmed salmonid fish and is divided into different genetic subtypes (SAV1-6). Here we report the cloning and characterization of the 5'- and 3'- untranslated regions (UTR) of a ...
Evolutionary turnover of mammalian transcription start sites
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2006-05-06)
Alignments of homologous genomic sequences are widely used to identify functional genetic elements and study their evolution. Most studies tacitly equate homology of functional elements with sequence homology. This assumption ...
