• Behavioral buffering of extreme weather events in a high-Arctic herbivore 

      Loe, Leif Egil; Hansen, Brage Bremset; Stien, Audun; Albon, Steve D.; Bischof, Richard; Carlsson, Anja M.; Irvine, Justin; Meland, Morten; Rivrud, Inger Maren; Ropstad, Erik; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Mysterud, Atle (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      As global warming advances, there is a growing concern about the impact of extreme weather events on ecosystems. In the Arctic, more frequent unseasonal warm spells and rain-on- snow events in winter cause changes in ...
    • Climate and density-dependence cause changes in adult sex ratio in a large Arctic herbivore 

      Peeters, Bart; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Pedersen, Åshild Ønvik; Stien, Audun; Irvine, Robert Justin; Aanes, Ronny; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Strand, Olav; Hansen, Brage Bremset (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Peeters, B., V. Veiberg, A. Ø. Pedersen, A. Stien, R. J. Irvine, R. Aanes, B.-E. Sæther, O. Strand, and B. B. Hansen. 2017. Climate and density dependence cause changes in adult sex ratio in a large Arctic herbivore. ...
    • Climate change induced molting mismatch? Mountain hare abundance reduced by duration of snowcover and predator abundance 

      Pedersen, Simen; Odden, Morten; Pedersen, Hans-Christian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In northern latitudes, species that have adapted to snow cover by molting and changing pelage color will be particularly vulnerable to climate change, as predation levels may increase due to a mismatch with background ...
    • Differential barrier and corridor effects of power lines,roads and rivers on moose (Alces alces) movements 

      Bartzke, Gundula; May, Roelof Frans; Solberg, Erling Johan; Rolandsen, Christer Moe; Røskaft, Eivin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      uilding new power lines is required to satisfy increasing demands for the transmission of electricity, and at the same time the road network is expanding. To provide guidelines for the routing of new power lines and ...
    • Later at higher latitudes: large-scale variability in seabird breeding timing and synchronicity 

      Burr, Zofia M.; Varpe, Øystein; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Erikstad, Kjell E; Descamps, Sébastien; Barrett, Robert T; Bech, Claus; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon; Moe, Børge; Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Strøm, Hallvard (Peer reviewed, 2016)
      In seasonal environments, organisms are expected to optimally schedule reproduction within an annual range of environmental conditions. Latitudinal gradients generate a range of seasonality to which we can expect adaptations ...
    • Multiple stressors: modeling the effect of pollution, climate, and predation on viability of a sub-arctic marine bird 

      Bårdsen, Bård-Jørgen; Hanssen, Sveinn Are; Bustnes, Jan Ove (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Negative effects of long-transported pollutants, such as many persistent organic pollutants (POPs), on seabirds and other top predators have been documented for decades. Yet, the concentrations, and hence, the negative ...
    • Predation or scavenging? Prey body condition influencesdecision-making in a facultative predator, the wolverine 

      Mattisson, Jenny; Rauset, Geir Rune; Odden, John; Andren, Henrik; Linnell, John Durrus; Persson, Jens (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      The interaction between predators and their prey is a key factor driving population dynamics and shaping wildlife communities. Most predators will scavenge in addition to killing their own prey, which alters predation ...
    • Variability in nomadism: environmental gradients modulate the movement behaviors of dryland ungulates 

      Nandintsetseg, Dejid; Bracis, Chloe; Leimgruber, Peter; Kaczensky, Petra; Buuveibaatar, Bayarbaatar; Lkhagvasuren, Badamjav; Chimeddorj, Buyanaa; Enkhtuvshin, Shilegdamba; Horning, Ned; Ito, Takehido Y.; Olson, Kirk; Payne, John; Walzer, Chris; Shinoda, Masato; Stabach, Jared; Songer, Melissa; Mueller, Thomas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Studying nomadic animal movement across species and ecosystems is essential for better understanding variability in nomadism. In arid environments, unpredictable changes in water and forage resources are known drivers of ...
