      Rydgren, Knut; Halvorsen, Rune; Töpper, Joachim Paul; Auestad, Inger; Hamre, Liv Norunn; Jongejans, Eelke; Sulavik, Jan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      1. Species composition is a vital attribute of any ecosystem. Accordingly, ecological restoration often has the original, or “natural,” species composition as its target. However, we still lack adequate methods for predicting ...
    • Community-wide mesocarnivore response to partial ungulate migration 

      Henden, John-André; Stien, Audun; Bårdsen, Bård-Jørgen; Yoccoz, Nigel Gilles; Ims, Rolf Anker (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      1.Mesocarnivores increase in number and geographic range in human-disturbed ecosystems with cascading negative impact on biodiversity. To mitigate such impacts, it is essential to identify the proximate causes of such ...

      1. Mesocarnivores increase in number and geographic range in human-disturbed ecosystems with cascading negative impact on biodiversity. To mitigate such impacts, it is essential to identify the proximate causes of such ...
    • Exploratory and confirmatory research in the open science era 

      Nilsen, Erlend Birkeland; Bowler, Diana Elizabeth; Linnell, John Durrus (Peer reviewed, 2002)
      1. Applied ecological research is increasingly inspired by the open science movement. However, new challenges about how we define our science when biodiversity data are being shared and reused are not solved. Among these ...
    • Failure to coordinate management in transboundary populations hinders the achievement of national management goals: The case of wolverines in Scandinavia 

      Gervasi, Vincenzo; Linnell, John D.C.; Brøseth, Henrik; Gimenez, Olivier (Peer reviewed, 2019-03-09)
      Large carnivores are expanding in Europe, and their return is associated with con- flicts that often result in policies to regulate their population size through culling. Being wide-ranging species, their populations are ...
    • Highways associated with expansion of boreal scavengers into the alpine tundra of Fennoscandia 

      Rød-Eriksen, Lars; Skrutvold, Johanna; Herfindal, Ivar; Jensen, Henrik; Eide, Nina Elisabeth (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      1. Habitat fragmentation may affect species distributions through, for example, altered resource availability and shifts in species interactions. Fragmentation by roads has had negative impacts on Fennoscandian alpine ...
    • Is it worthwhile scaring geese to alleviate damage to crops? – An experimental study 

      Simonsen, Caroline Ernberg; Madsen, Jesper; Tombre, Ingunn; Nabe-Nielsen, Jacob (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Summary 1.Increasing population sizes of geese are the cause of numerous agricultural conflicts in many regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Scaring is often used as a tool to chase geese away from fields, either as a means ...
    • The last moves: The effect of hunting and culling on the risk of disease spread from a population of reindeer 

      Mysterud, Atle; Rauset, Geir Rune; Van Moorter, Bram; Andersen, Roy; Strand, Olav; Rivrud, Inger Maren (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      1. Hunting and culling are frequently used to combat infectious wildlife diseases. The aim is to markedly lower population density in order to limit disease transmission or to eradicate the host. Massive host culling can ...
    • Quantifying risk of overharvest when implementation is uncertain 

      Eriksen, Lasse Frost; Moa, Pål Fossland; Nilsen, Erlend Birkeland (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      1. Sustainable harvest management implies an ability to control harvest rates. This is challenging in systems that have limited control of resources and resource users, which is often the case in small game harvest management. ...
    • Relating national levels of crop damage to the abundance of large grazing birds: Implications for management 

      Montràs‐Janer, Teresa; Knape, Jonas; Nilsson, Lovisa; Tombre, Ingunn; Pärt, Tomas; Månsson, Johan (Journal article, 2020)
      1. Populations of large grazing birds have increased in Europe during the past five decades, raising conflicts between conservation and farming interests. Managing these conflicts requires knowledge about the currently ...
    • Species-specific spatiotemporal patterns of leopard, lion and tiger attacks on humans 

      Packer, Craig; Shivakumar, Shweta; Athreya, Vidya; Craft, Meggan E.; Dhanwatey, Harshawardhan; Dhanwatey, Poonam; Gurung, Bhim; Joshi, Anup; Kushnir, Hadas; Linnell, John Durrus; Fountain-Jones, Nicholas M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      1. Large carnivores of the genus Panthera can pose serious threats to public safety. Although the annual number of attacks on humans is rare compared to livestock depredation, such incidents undermine popular support for ...
    • Timing is everything: Survival of Atlantic salmon Salmo salar postsmolts during events of high salmon lice densities 

      Bøhn, Thomas; Gjelland, Karl Øystein; Serra-Llinares, Rosa Maria; Finstad, Bengt; Primicerio, Raul; Nilsen, Rune; Karlsen, Ørjan; Sandvik, Anne Dagrun; Skilbrei, Ove Tommy; Elvik, Kristine Marit Schrøder; Skaala, Øystein; Bjørn, Pål Arne (Journal article, 2020)
      1. Atlantic salmon in aquaculture act as reservoir hosts and vectors of parasites like salmon lice and this parasite is shown to harm wild salmonid populations. 2. In this study, n = 29,817 tagged Atlantic salmon were ...
