• Decomposing demographic contributions to the effective population size with moose as a case study 

      Lee, Aline Magdalena; Myhre, Ane Marlene; Markussen, Stine Svalheim; Engen, Steinar; Solberg, Erling Johan; Haanes, Hallvard; Røed, Knut; Herfindal, Ivar; Heim, Morten; Sæther, Bernt-Erik (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Levels of random genetic drift are influenced by demographic factors, such as mating system, sex ratio and age structure. The effective population size (N e) is a useful measure for quantifying genetic drift. Evaluating ...
    • Determinants of age at first reproduction and lifetime breeding success revealed by full paternity assignment in a male ungulate 

      Markussen, Stine Svalheim; Herfindal, Ivar; Loison, Anne; Solberg, Erling Johan; Haanes, Hallvard; Røed, Knut; Heim, Morten; Sæther, Bernt-Erik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Age at first reproduction is an important determinant of individual variation in reproductive success in ungulates, but few studies have examined its relationship with later fitness‐related traits in males. We used a ...
    • Harvest-induced phenotypic selection in an island population of moose, Alces alces 

      Kvalnes, Thomas; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Haanes, Hallvard; Røed, Knut; Engen, Steinar; Solberg, Erling Johan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Empirical evidence strongly indicates that human exploitation has frequently led to rapid evolutionary changes in wild populations, yet the mechanisms involved are often poorly understood. Here, we applied a recently ...
    • Opposing fitness consequences of habitat use in a harvested moose population 

      Ofstad, Endre Grüner; Markussen, Stine Svalheim; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Solberg, Erling Johan; Heim, Morten; Haanes, Hallvard; Røed, Knut; Herfindal, Ivar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      1. Landscape changes are happening at an unprecedented pace, and together with high levels of wildlife harvesting humans have a large effect on wildlife populations. A thorough knowledge of their combined influence on ...
    • Sea ice loss increases genetic isolation in a high Arctic ungulate metapopulation 

      Peeters, Bart; Le Moullec, Mathilde; Raeymaekers, Joost A. M.; Fredricson Marquez, Jonatan; Røed, Knut; Pedersen, Åshild Ønvik; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Loe, Leif Egil; Hansen, Brage Bremset (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Sea ice loss may have dramatic consequences for population connectivity, extinction–colonization dynamics, and even the persistence of Arctic species subject to climate change. This is of particular concern in face of ...
    • Stabilizing selection and adaptive evolution in a combination of two traits in an arctic ungulate 

      Holand, Håkon; Kvalnes, Thomas; Røed, Knut; Holand, Øystein; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Kumpula, Jukka (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Stabilizing selection is thought to be common in wild populations and act as one of the main evolutionary mechanisms, which constrain phenotypic variation. When multiple traits interact to create a combined phenotype, ...
    • Wage Formation, Regional Migration and Local Labour Market Tightness 

      Carlsen, Fredrik; Johansen, Kåre; Røed, Knut (Working Paper Series, 1503-299X; 2003:3, Research report, 2003)
      Economic theory predicts that local labour market tightness affects local wage setting as well as individuals' migration decisions. But how should we measure local labour market tightness? In this paper we show that the ...
