    • 175 years of adaptation: North Scandinavian Sámi reindeer herding between government policies and winter climate variability (1835–2010) 

      Riseth, Jan Åge; Tømmervik, Hans; Bjerke, Jarle W. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Unmanaged wild reindeer populations tend to follow cyclical behaviour, and domesticatedreindeer populations often show cyclical behaviour, too. In this contribution, we intendto use the long-term development of two areas ...
    • 3D modelling of non-uniform and turbulent flow in vertical slot fishways 

      Fuentes-Pérez, J.F.; Silva, Ana T.; Tuhtan, J.A.; García-Vega, A.; Carbonell-Baeza, R.; Musall, M.; Kruusmaa, M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Global stocks of freshwater fish have been on the decline for decades, driven in part by the obstruction of their migration routes by anthropogenic barriers. To mitigate such impacts, fishways have been developed to ...
