• Behavioral buffering of extreme weather events in a high-Arctic herbivore 

      Loe, Leif Egil; Hansen, Brage Bremset; Stien, Audun; Albon, Steve D.; Bischof, Richard; Carlsson, Anja M.; Irvine, Justin; Meland, Morten; Rivrud, Inger Maren; Ropstad, Erik; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Mysterud, Atle (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      As global warming advances, there is a growing concern about the impact of extreme weather events on ecosystems. In the Arctic, more frequent unseasonal warm spells and rain-on- snow events in winter cause changes in ...
    • Comparison of organic and conventional food and food Production. Part V: Human health – pesticide residues 

      Bjørge, Christine; Låg, Marit; Hetland, Ragna Bogen; Christiansen, Agnethe; Skretteberg, Lise; Andreassen, Åshild Kristine; Arukwe, Augustine; Bøe, Knut Egil; Bernhoft, Aksel; Eklo, Ole Martin; Grung, Merete; Haugen, Margaretha; Hemre, Gro Ingunn; Klingen, Ingeborg; Källqvist, Torsten; Krogdahl, Åshild; Lassen, Jørgen Fredrik; Næss, Bjørn; Ropstad, Erik; Skåre, Janneche Utne; Steffensen, Inger-Lise; Sundheim, Leif; Sverdrup, Line Emilie; Torrissen, Ole; Alexander, Jan (VKM Report;, Research report, 2014)
    • Contrasting effects of summer and winter warming onbody mass explain population dynamics in a food-limitedArctic herbivore 

      Albon, Steve D.; Irvine, R. Justin; Halvorsen, Odd; Langvatn, Rolf; Loe, Leif Egil; Ropstad, Erik; Veiberg, Vebjørn; van der Wal, René; Bjørkvoll, Eirin Marie; Duff, Elizabeth I.; Hansen, Brage Bremset; Lee, Aline Magdalena; Tveraa, Torkild; Stien, Audun (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      The cumulative effects of climate warming on herbivore vital rates and population dynamics are hard to predict, given that the expected effects differ between seasons. In the Arctic, warmer summers enhance plant growth ...
    • Don't go chasing the ghosts of the past: habitat selection and site fidelity during calving in an Arctic ungulate 

      Paulsen, Ingrid M.; Soininen, Eeva M; Ravolainen, Virve; Loe, Leif Egil; Hansen, Brage Bremset; Irvine, Justin R; Stien, Audun; Ropstad, Erik; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Fuglei, Eva; Pedersen, Åshild Ønvik (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Predator avoidance and food availability are both factors known to influence habitat selection and site fidelity around calving in caribou and reindeer. Here, we assess habitat selection and site fidelity during the calving ...
    • More frequent extreme climate events stabilize reindeer population dynamics 

      Hansen, Brage Bremset; Gamelon, Marlène; Albon, Steve D.; Lee, Aline Magdalena; Stien, Audun; Irvine, Robert Justin; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Loe, Leif Egil; Ropstad, Erik; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Grøtan, Vidar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Extreme climate events often cause population crashes but are difficult to account for in population-dynamic studies. Especially in long-lived animals, density dependence and demography may induce lagged impacts of ...
    • The neglected season: Warmer autumns counteract harsher winters and promote population growth in Arctic reindeer 

      Loe, Leif Egil; Liston, Glen E.; Pigeon, Gabriel; Barker, Kristin; Horvitz, Nir; Stien, Audun; Forchhammer, Mads C.; Getz, Wayne M.; Irvine, Robert Justin; Lee, Aline Magdalena; Movik, Lars K.; Mysterud, Atle; Pedersen, Åshild Ønvik; Reinking, Adele K.; Ropstad, Erik; Trondrud, Liv Monica; Tveraa, Torkild; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Hansen, Brage Bremset; Albon, Steve D. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Arctic ungulates are experiencing the most rapid climate warming on Earth. While concerns have been raised that more frequent icing events may cause die-offs, and earlier springs may generate a trophic mismatch in phenology, ...
    • Plasmid-associated antimicrobial resistance and virulence genes in Escherichia coli in a high arctic reindeer subspecies 

      Sunde, Marianne; Ramstad, Silje N.; Rudi, Knut; Porcellato, Davide; Ravi, Anuradha; Ludvigsen, Jane; das Neves, Carlos Gonçalo; Tryland, Morten; Ropstad, Erik; Slettemeås, Jannice S.; Telke, Amar A. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Objectives In extreme environments, such as the Arctic region, the anthropogenic influence is low and the presence of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria is unexpected. In this study, we screened wild reindeer (Rangifer ...
