  • Kapfer, Jutta (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2011-11-04)
    In the face of recent changes in environmental conditions and climate, longterm studies provide important insights into patterns and processes of vegetational change. In northern Europe, however, long-term studies are ...
  • Einarsson, Haraldur Arnar (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2001)
    Vertical fish migrations can increase variability in bottom survey data, especially if unknown diurnal length-frequency distribution is different between layers. Surveys, using echo sounder technique to estimate demersal ...
  • 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 ...
  • Varpe, Øystein Heggernes (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2007-02-16)
    The thesis contains studies of animal life histories at high latitudes. Several topics are covered; from ecosystem consequences of life histories to tests of specific behavioural predictions put forward based on life ...
  • Boukal, David S.; Dieckmann, Ulf; Enberg, Katja; Heino, Mikko Petteri; Jørgensen, Christian (Journal article, Elsevier, 2014-10-21)
    Several phenomenological descriptions, such as the von Bertalanffy growth model, have been widely used to describe size-at-age and individual growth across a diverse range of organisms. However, for modelling life histories, ...
  • Subramaniam, Gunasekaran; Campsteijn, Coen; Thompson, Eric (Journal article, PLOS, 2014-04-02)
    It is proposed that the ageing process is linked to signaling from the germline such that the rate of ageing can be adjusted to the state of the reproductive system, allowing these two processes to co-evolve. Mechanistic ...
  • Lislevand, Terje; Thomas, Gavin H. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, The Royal Society, 2006-06-22)
    In bird species where males incubate but are smaller than females, egg size may be constrained by male body size, and hence ability to incubate the eggs. Using data from 71 such shorebird species, we show that egg size ...
  • Finn, Roderick Nigel; Chauvigné, Francois; Hlidberg, Jón Baldur; Cutler, Christopher P.; Cerdà, Joan (Journal article, Public Library of Science, 2014-11-26)
    A major physiological barrier for aquatic organisms adapting to terrestrial life is dessication in the aerial environment. This barrier was nevertheless overcome by the Devonian ancestors of extant Tetrapoda, but the origin ...
  • Andersen, Gidske L.; Krzywinski, Knut (Journal article; Peer reviewed, BioMed Central, 2007-06-15)
    Background: Acacia tortilis is a keystone species across arid ecosystems in Africa and the Middle East. Yet, its life-history, longevity and growth are poorly known, and consequently ongoing changes in tree populations ...
  • Andersen, Gidske L. (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2007-03-09)
    This study focuses on the long-term dynamics of wadi (dry river valley) trees, in particular Acacia tortilis (Forssk.) Hayne, in the hyper-arid Eastern Desert of Egypt. The project was motivated by the importance of ...
  • Haave, Marte; Bernhard, Annette; Jellestad, Finn K.; Heegaard, Einar; Brattelid, Trond; Lundebye, Anne-Katrine (Peer reviewed; Journal article, BioMed Central, 2011-01-13)
    Background: Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are widespread in the environment, human food and breast milk. Seafood is known to contain nutrients beneficial for the normal development and function of the brain, but ...

  • Tolås, Ida Vilinn (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2012-06-04)
    Oppdrettsnæringen har blitt kritisert for å ha en negativ innvirkning på omliggende miljø, der smitteoverføring av ulike agens til ville laksepopulasjoner er et stort problem. Det er også reist bekymring ved den genetiske ...
  • Suontama, Jorma (Doctoral thesis, The University of BergenInstitute of Marine Research, 2006-12-14)
  • Groison, Anne-Laure (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2010-05-14)
    The reproductive biology of European hake (Merluccius merluccius) has been studied extensively in the field, but mainly focusing on fecundity regulation in females and its implications for the fishery. The European hake ...
  • 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 ...
  • Monier, Adam; Borggaard Larsen, Jens; Sandaa, Ruth-Anne; Bratbak, Gunnar; Claverie, Jean-Michel; Ogata, Hiroyuki (Journal article; Peer reviewed, BioMed Central, 2008-01-23)
    Background Acanthamoeba polyphaga mimivirus is the largest known ds-DNA virus and its 1.2 Mb-genome sequence has revealed many unique features. Mimivirus occupies an independent lineage among eukaryotic viruses and its ...
  • Vartdal, Didrik (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2012-09-03)
