      Winter climate and snow cover are the important drivers of plant community development in polar regions. However, the impacts of changing winter climate and associated changes in snow regime have received much less attention ...
    • Global change and ecosystem connectivity: how geese link fields of central Europe to eutrophication of Arctic freshwaters 

      Hessen, Dag Olav; Tombre, Ingunn; van Geest, Gerben; Alfsnes, Kristian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)

    • Goose management schemes to resolve conflicts with agriculture:Theory, practice and effects 

      Eythórsson, Einar; Tombre, Ingunn; Madsen, Jesper (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In 2012, the four countries hosting the Svalbard population of pink-footed goose Anser brachyrhynchus along its flyway launched an International Species Management Plan for the population. One of the aims was to reduce ...
