(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Chronic, low intensity herbivory by invertebrates, termed background herbivory, has been understudied in tundra, yet its impacts are likely to increase in a warmer Arctic. The magnitude of these changes is however hard to ...

F.; Jonsdottir, I. S. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Understanding and predicting large-scale ecological responses to global environmental change requires comparative studies across geographic scales with coordinated efforts and standardized methodologies. We designed, ...
    • 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 ...
    • Evidence of effects of herbivory on Arctic vegetation: a systematic map protocol 

      Soininen, Eeva M; Barrio, I.; Jepsen, Jane Uhd; Ehrich, Dorothee; Ravolainen, Virve; Speed, James David Mervyn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Background: Along with climate change, herbivory is considered a main driver of ecosystem change in terrestrial Arctic environments. Understanding how herbivory influences the resilience of Arctic ecosystems to ongoing ...
    • Highly overlapping winter diet in two sympatric lemming species revealed by DNA metabarcoding 

      Soininen, Eeva M; Gauthier, Gilles; Bilodeau, Frederic; Berteaux, Dominique; Gielly, Ludovic; Taberlet, Pierre; Gussarova, Galina; Bellemain, Eva; Hassel, Kristian; Stenøien, Hans K.; Epp, Laura; Schrøder-Nielsen, Audun; Brochmann, Christian; Yoccoz, Nigel Gilles (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Sympatric species are expected to minimize competition by partitioning resources, especially when these are limited. Herbivores inhabiting the High Arctic in winter are a prime example of a situation where food availability ...
    • Trophic interactions and abiotic factors drive functional and phylogenetic structure of vertebrate herbivore communities across the Arctic tundra biome 

      Speed, James David Mervyn; Skjelbred, Ina Åsnes; Barrio, Isabel C.; Martin, Michael David; Berteaux, Dominique; Bueno, Guillermo; Christie, Katie; Forbes, Bruce C.; Forbey, Jennifer; Fortin, Daniel; Grytnes, John-Arvid; Hoset, Katrine Skamfer; Lecomte, Nicolas; Marteinsdottir, Bryndis; Mosbacher, Jesper Bruun; Pedersen, Åshild Ø.; Ravolainen, Virve; Rees, Eileen C.; Skarin, Anna; Sokolova, Natalya; Thornhill, Andrew H; Tombre, Ingunn; Soininen, Eeva M (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Communities are assembled from species that evolve or colonise a given geographic region, and persist in the face of abiotic conditions and interactions with other species. The evolutionary and colonisation histories of ...
