      Freshwater metazoan biodiversity assessment using environmental DNA (eDNA) captured on filters offers new opportunities for water quality management. Filtering of water in the field is a logistical advantage compared to ...
    • Heterogeneity among species and community dynamics – Norwegian bird communities as a case study 

      Solbu, Erik Blystad; Diserud, Ola Håvard; Kålås, John Atle; Engen, Steinar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      We have in this study analysed bird communities across Norway with a heterogeneous species abundance model, where dynamical parameters can vary among species. Similarity in community composition over time, used as a measure ...
    • Integrative taxonomy of the Changeable Hawk-Eagle Nisaetus cirrhatus complex (Accipitriformes: Accipitridae) in India 

      Gjershaug, Jan Ove; Diserud, Ola Håvard; Kleven, Oddmund; Rasmussen, P.C.; Espmark, Yngve (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The Changeable Hawk-Eagle Nisaetus cirrhatus complex is represented by two taxa in mainland India: N. c. cirrhatus in the northern plains and peninsula and N. c. limnaeetus in the Himalayan foothills. Traditionally these ...
    • Long-term variation in numbers and biomass of silver eels being produced in two European river systems 

      Poole, W. Russell; Diserud, Ola Håvard; Thorstad, Eva Bonsak; Durif, Caroline; Dolan, Conor; Sandlund, Odd Terje; Bergesen, Knut Aanestad; Rogan, Gerard; Kelly, Sean D.; Vøllestad, Leif Asbjørn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The European eel (Anguilla anguilla) population has been in decline at least since the 1960s and reliable regional information, particularly on the spawner production and escapement (i.e. the silver eel life stage), is a ...
    • Modellering av gjellealuminium. Aluminiumspåslag på gjellene til laksesmolt og betydningen dette kan ha for utvandringen 

      Diserud, Ola Håvard; Kroglund, Frode; Teien, Hans-Christian; Tjomsland, Torulv; Økland, Finn (NINA rapport;773, Research report, 2012)
      Etter kalking av Storelva i Holt har utvandringen av smolt vært betydelig, mens fangstene av laks i elva fortsatte å være lave (Kroglund mfl. 2011c). I 2005 ble det observert smolt i dårlig form og uten fluktatferd i ...
    • Modelling climate change effects on Atlantic salmon: Implications for mitigation in regulated rivers 

      Sundt-Hansen, Line Elisabeth Breivik; Hedger, Richard David; Ugedal, Ola; Diserud, Ola Håvard; Finstad, Anders Gravbrøt; Sauterleute, Julian Friedrich; Tøfte, Lena S; Alfredsen, Knut; Forseth, Torbjørn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Climate change is expected to alter future temperature and discharge regimes of rivers. These regimes have a strong influence on the life history of most aquatic river species, and are key variables controlling the growth ...
    • Repeatable individual variation in migration timing in two anadromous salmonids and ecological consequences 

      Jensen, Arne Johan; Finstad, Bengt; Fiske, Peder; Diserud, Ola Håvard; Thorstad, Eva Bonsak (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Consistent individual differences in behavior have been demonstrated for many animals, but there are few studies of consequences of such repeated behavior in the wild. We tested consistency in migration timing to and from ...
