• A multi-marker metabarcoding approach to study tardigrade diversity in forest ecosystems. 

      Topstad, Lasse (Master thesis, 2019)
      Som annen mikroskopisk fauna blir bjørnedyr ofte oversett i økologiske undersøkelser. Med sin kosmopolitiske utbredelse i alt fra sedimenter på havets dyp til høyalpine fjellområder, spiller bjørnedyr viktige roller i mange ...
    • Multi-marker DNA metabarcoding reflects tardigrade diversity in different habitats 

      Topstad, Lasse; Guidetti, Roberto; Majaneva, Markus; Ekrem, Torbjørn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Like meiofauna in general, tardigrades are often neglected in ecological and environmental surveys. Tardigrades occur in all parts of the world, from deep marine sediments to alpine environments, and are present in most ...
    • An urban Blitz with a twist: rapid biodiversity assessment using aquatic environmental DNA
