• Carbon budget consequences of deciduous shrub expansion in alpine tundra ecosystems 

      Sørensen, Mia Vedel (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:256, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
      Arctic and alpine tundra ecosystems are important for global carbon sequestration, as they store more than half of the global soil carbon (C), and these systems are predicted to have the greatest soil C loss following ...
    • Determinants of tree seedling establishment in alpine tundra 

      Marsman, Floor; Nystuen, Kristin Odden; Opedal, Øystein Hjorthol; Sørensen, Mia Vedel; De Frenne, Pieter; Graae, Bente Jessen; Limpens, Juul; Foest, Jessie (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Questions Changes in climate and herbivory pressure affect northern alpine ecosystems through woody plant encroachment, altering their composition, structure and functioning. The encroachment often occurs at unequal rates ...
    • Drivers of C cycling in three arctic-alpine plant communities 

      Sørensen, Mia Vedel; Graae, Bente Jessen; Strimbeck, Richard; Enquist, Brian J. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Recent vegetation changes in arctic-alpine tundra ecosystems may affect several ecosystem processes that regulate microbe and soil functions. Such changes can alter ecosystem carbon (C) cycling with positive feedback to ...
    • Experimental herbivore exclusion, shrub introduction, and carbon sequestration in alpine plant communities 

      Sørensen, Mia Vedel; Graae, Bente Jessen; Hagen, Dagmar; Enquist, Brian J.; Nystuen, Kristin Odden; Strimbeck, Richard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Background Shrub cover in arctic and alpine ecosystems has increased in recent decades, and is predicted to further increase with climate change. Changes in shrub abundance may alter ecosystem carbon (C) sequestration and ...
    • Functional group contributions to carbon fluxes in arctic-alpine ecosystems 

      Strimbeck, Richard; Sørensen, Mia Vedel; Graae, Bente Jessen; Lang, Simone I. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Ongoing responses to climate change in arctic-alpine ecosystems, including the increasing dominance of deciduous shrubs, involve major shifts in plant functional group composition. Because rates of photosynthesis and ...
    • Herbivores reduce seedling recruitment in alpine plant communities 

      H. Opedal, Øystein; Nystuen, Kristin Odden; Hagen, Dagmar; Holien, Håkon; Sørensen, Mia Vedel; Lang, Simone; Lindmo, Sigrid; Strimbeck, Richard; Graae, Bente Jessen (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Through changes in climate and other environmental factors, alpine tundra ecosystems are subject to increased cover of erect shrubs, reduced predictability of rodent dynamics and changes in wild and domesticated herbivore ...
    • SoilTemp: A global database of near-surface temperature 

      Lembrechts, Jonas J.; Smith, Stuart; Halbritter, Aud Helen; Graae, Bente Jessen; Sørensen, Mia Vedel; Speed, James David Mervyn; Wedegärtner, Ronja Elisabeth Magdalene (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Current analyses and predictions of spatially explicit patterns and processes in ecology most often rely on climate data interpolated from standardized weather stations. This interpolated climate data represents long-term ...
    • TRY plant trait database – enhanced coverage and open access 

      Kattge, Jens; Bönisch, Gerhard; Díaz, Sandra; Lavorel, Sandra; Prentice, Iain Colin; Leadley, Paul; Tautenhahn, Susanne; Werner, Gijsbert D.A.; Aakala, Tuomas; Abedi, Mehdi; Acosta, Alicia T.R.; Adamidis, George C.; Adamson, Kairi; Aiba, Masahiro; Albert, Cécile H.; Alcántara, Julio M.; Alcázar C., Carolina; Aleixo, Izabela; Ali, Hamada; Amiaud, Bernard; Ammer, Christian; Amoroso, Mariano M.; Anand, Madhur; Anderson, Carolyn; Anten, Niels; Antos, Joseph; Apgaua, Deborah Mattos Guimarães; Ashman, Tia-Lynn; Asmara, Degi Harja; Asner, Gregory P.; Aspinwall, Michael; Atkin, Owen; Aubin, Isabelle; Baastrup-Spohr, Lars; Bahalkeh, Khadijeh; Bahn, Michael; Baker, Timothy; Baker, William J.; Bakker, Jan P.; Baldocchi, Dennis; Baltzer, Jennifer; Banerjee, Arindam; Baranger, Anne; Barlow, Jos; Barneche, Diego R.; Baruch, Zdravko; Bastianelli, Denis; Battles, John; Bauerle, William; Bauters, Marijn; Graae, Bente Jessen; Hawes, Joseph; Hovstad, Knut Anders; Nystuen, Kristin Odden; Rusch, Graciela; Sørensen, Mia Vedel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Plant traits—the morphological, anatomical, physiological, biochemical and phenological characteristics of plants—determine how plants respond to environmental factors, affect other trophic levels, and influence ecosystem ...
