• Arctic browning: extreme events and trends reversing arctic greening 

      Phoenix, G. K.; Bjerke, Jarle W. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
    • Changes in timing of seasonal peak photosynthetic activity in northern ecosystems 

      Park, Taejin; Chen, Chi; Macias-Fauria, Marc; Tømmervik, Hans; Choi, Sungho; Winkler, Alexander; Bhatt, Uma S.; Walker, Donald A.; Piao, Shilong; Brovkin, Victor; Nemani, Ramakrishna R.; Myneni, Ranga B. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Seasonality in photosynthetic activity is a critical component of seasonal carbon, water and energy cycles in the Earth system. This characteristic is a consequence of plant’s adaptive evolutionary processes to a given set ...
    • Circumpolar dynamics of a marine top-predator track ocean warming rates. 

      Descamps, Sebastian; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Barrett, Robert T; Irons, D; Merkel, Flemming; Robertson, Gregory J.; Yoccoz, Nigel Gilles; Mallory, Mark L; Montevecchi, William A.; Boertmann, D.; Artukhin, Yuri; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; Erikstad, Kjell E; Gilchrist, H. Grant; Labansen, Aili; Lorentsen, Svein Håkon; Mosbech, Anders; Olsen, Bergur; Petersen, Aevar; Rail, Jean-Francois; Renner, Heather M.; Strøm, H.; Systad, Geir Helge; Wilhelm, Sabina I.; Zelenskaya, Larisa (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Global warming is a nonlinear process, and temperature may increase in a stepwise manner. Periods of abrupt warming can trigger persistent changes in the state of ecosystems, also called regime shifts. The responses of ...
    • Climatic and biotic extreme events moderate long-term responses of above- and belowground sub-Arctic heathland communities to climate change 

      Bokhorst, Stef; Phoenix, Gareth K.; Berg, Matty P.; Callaghan, Terry V.; Kirby-Lambert, Christopher; Bjerke, Jarle W. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Climate change impacts are not uniform across the Arctic region because interacting factors causes large variations in local ecosystem change. Extreme climatic events and population cycles of herbivores occur simultaneously ...
    • Diverging phenological responses of Arctic seabirds to an earlier spring 

      Descamps, Sébastien; Ramírez, Francisco; Benjaminsen, Sigurd; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Barrett, Robert; Burr, Zofia; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; Erikstad, Kjell-Einar; Irons, David B.; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon; Mallory, Mark L.; Robertson, Gregory J.; Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Strøm, Hallvard; Varpe, Øystein; Lavergne, Sébastien (Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The timing of annual events such as reproduction is a critical component of how free‐living organisms respond to ongoing climate change. This may be especially true in the Arctic, which is disproportionally impacted by ...
    • Northward range expansion in spring‐staging barnacle geese is a response to climate change and population growth, mediated by individual experience 

      Tombre, Ingunn; Oudman, Thomas; Shimmings, Paul; Griffin, Larry; Prop, Larry (Peer reviewed, 2019)
      All long‐distance migrants must cope with changing environments, but species differ greatly in how they do so. In some species, individuals might be able to adjust by learning from individual experiences and by copying ...
    • The devil is in the detail: non-additive and context-dependent plant population responses to increasing temperature and precipitation. Plant demography in a warmer & wetter climate 

      Töpper, Joachim Paul; Meineri, E.; Olsen, Siri Lie; Rydgren, Knut; Skarpaas, Olav; Vandvik, Vigdis (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      In climate‐change ecology, simplistic research approaches may yield unrealistically simplistic answers to often more complicated problems. In particular, the complexity of vegetation responses to global climate change begs ...
    • The interplay of climate and land use change affects the distribution of EU bumblebees 

      Marshall, Leon; Biesmeijer, Jacobus C.; Rasmont, Pierre; Vereecken, Nicolas J.; Dvorak, Libor; Fitzpatrick, Úna; Francis, Frédéric; Neumayer, Johann; Ødegaard, Frode; Paukkunen, Juho P.T.; Pawlikowski, Tadeusz; Reemer, Menno; Roberts, Stuart P.M.; Straka, Jakub; Vray, Sarah; Dendoncker, Nicolas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
