Multiple-locus, variable number of tandem repeat analysis (MLVA) of the fish-pathogen Francisella noatunensis
(BioMed Central, 2011-01-24)
Background: Since Francisella noatunensis was first isolated from cultured Atlantic cod in 2004, it has emerged as a global fish pathogen causing disease in both warm and cold water species. Outbreaks of francisellosis ...
Traditional nomadic tending of trees in the Red Sea Hills
There are recurring questions about the ecological sustainability of indigenous resource management and what traditional ecological knowledge and rationale underlie such practices. Pastoral nomads from the Hadandawa, Amar ...
Behavioural and physiological adaptations of the bearded goby, a key fish species of the extreme environment of the northern Benguela upwelling
Nutrient-rich, upwelling marine areas with high productivity often produce sediments dominated by organic-rich mud. Here, intense decay processes create hypoxic conditions with high concentrations of hydrogen sulphide ...
Salamonid alphavirus (SAV) - genetic characterisation of a new subtype, SAV3, and implementation of a novel diagnostic method
(The University of Bergen, 2006-12-13)
Reconstructed 3D models of digestive organs of developing Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) larvae
Six 3D models of the digestive system during ontogeny were reconstructed from histological sections of Atlantic cod larvae. The 3D models clearly visualize the following features: folding of the gut rotation; subdivision ...
Functional analysis of metagenomes and metatranscriptomes using SEED and KEGG
(BioMed Central, 2011-02-15)
Background: Metagenomics is the study of microbial organisms using sequencing applied directly to environmental samples. Technological advances in next-generation sequencing methods are fueling a rapid increase in the ...
Identification and characterisation of novel SNP markers in Atlantic cod: Evidence for directional selection
(BioMed Central, 2008-02-26)
Background The Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) is a groundfish of great economic value in fisheries and an emerging species in aquaculture. Genetic markers are needed to identify wild stocks in order to ensure sustainable ...
Effect of different filter methods on water quality to a marine scallop hatchery
(The University of Bergen, 2010-05-31)
Water quality in marine hatcheries is a critical aspect in the production of spat. Different filtering methods have been used to treat the intake seawater in the hatcheries. The Scalpro AS hatchery uses two different types ...
What is the observed relationship between species richness and productivity? Comment
(Ecological Society of America, 2003)
Breeding system, insect flower visitation, and floral traits of two alpine cerastium species in Norway
(The Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research, 1999)
The pollination and reproductive ecology of Saxifraga stellaris was investigated in alpine southwest Norway. A breeding system analysis, with performance of controlled crosses, revealed that S. stellaris is self-compatible ...
