      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 ...
    • Effects of Climate on Chick Growth in the Black-legged Kittiwake (Rissa tridactyla) 

      Alvestad, Rakel Jansen (Master thesis, 2015)
      Seabirds are declining worldwide as a result of anthropogenic influences, primarily through climate change affecting the food availability. One of the declining species is the black-legged kittiwake (Rissa tridactyla), ...
    • Exploring Moulting Common Eider (Somateria mollissima) Escape Responses towards Ship Traffic. 

      Skei, Jørgen (Master thesis, 2014)
      1. The construction of bottom dwelling offshore wind farms in shallow waters is expected to interfere with seabird feeding and moulting habitats. This study focus on how the disturbance from ship traffic associated with ...
    • Global phenological insensitivity to shifting ocean temperatures among seabirds

      Reproductive timing in many taxa plays a key role in determining breeding productivity1, and is often sensitive to climatic conditions2. Current climate change may alter the timing of breeding at different rates across ...
    • Identifying Conservative Criteria for (environmental) Assessments of Vulnerability;: Seabirds and Offshore Wind Farms as a Case Study 

      Gressetvold, Marit (Master thesis, 2013)
      The approach is based on four criterias; 1) elasticity of adult and juvenile survival on population growth rate, 2) redlist status and 3) local abundances and 4) flight properties. I also investigated whether the different ...
    • Prevailing weather conditions and dietcomposition affect chick growth and survival in the black-legged kittiwake 

      Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; May, Roelof Frans; Barrett, Robert; Langset, Magdalene; Sandercock, Brett; Lorentsen, Svein Håkon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      To identify priorities for management of seabirds during the breeding season, it is important to understand the ecological mechanisms driving chick growth and survival. In this study, we examined the effects of diet and ...
    • Seabirds as guides for fisheries management: European shag Phalacrocorax aristotelis diet as indicator of saithe Pollachius virens recruitment 

      Lorentsen, Svein Håkon; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Erikstad, Kjell E (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      In fisheries management, assessing year-class strength and recruitment to commercial stocks is essential, but can be difficult to do for fish species where the young stages are inaccessible to ship-based surveys. This is ...
    • Taking a trip to the shelf: Behavioral decisions are mediated by the proximity to foraging habitats in the black-legged kittiwake 

      Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; May, Roelof Frans; Lorentsen, Svein Håkon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      For marine top predators like seabirds, the oceans represent a multitude of habitats regarding oceanographic conditions and food availability. Worldwide, these marine habitats are being altered by changes in climate and ...
