(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Chronic, low intensity herbivory by invertebrates, termed background herbivory, has been understudied in tundra, yet its impacts are likely to increase in a warmer Arctic. The magnitude of these changes is however hard to ...
    • Stay or go – how topographic complexity influences alpine plant population and community responses to climate change 

      Graae, Bente Jessen; Vandvik, Vigdis; Armbruster, W. Scott; Eiserhardt, Wolf L.; Svenning, Jens-Christian; Hylander, Kristoffer; Ehrlén, Johan; Speed, James D.M.; Klanderud, Kari; Bråthen, Kari Anne; Milbau, Ann; Opedal, Øystein Hjorthol; Alsos, Inger G.; Ejrnæs, Rasmus; Bruun, Hans Henrik; Birks, H. John B.; Westergaard, Kristine Bakke; Birks, Hilary H; Lenoir, Jonathan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In the face of climate change, populations have two survival options − they can remain in situ and tolerate the new climatic conditions (“stay”), or they can move to track their climatic niches (“go”). For sessile and ...
    • Stomping in silence: Conceptualizing trampling effects on soils in polar tundra 

      Tuomi, Maria; Väisänen, Maria; Ylänne, H; Brearley, Francis Q.; Barrio, Isabel C.; Bråthen, Kari Anne; Eischeid, Isabell; Forbes, Bruce C.; Jónsdóttir, Ingibjörg; Kolstad, Anders Lorentzen; Macek, Petr; Petit Bon, Matteo; Speed, James David Mervyn; Stark, Sari; Svavarsdóttir, Kristin; Thorsson, Johann; Bueno, C. Guillermo (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Ungulate trampling modifies soils and interlinked ecosystem functions across biomes. Until today, most research has focused on temperate ecosystems and mineral soils while trampling effects on cold and organic matter‐rich ...
    • What are the impacts of reindeer/caribou (Rangifer tarandus L.) on arctic and alpine vegetation? A systematic review 

      Bernes, Claes; Bråthen, Kari Anne; Forbes, Bruce C.; Speed, James David Mervyn; Moen, Jon (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      Background:The reindeer (or caribou,Rangifer tarandusL.) has a natural range extending over much of Eurasia’s and North America’s arctic, alpine and boreal zones, yet its impact on vegetation is still unclear. This lack ...
