      Global warming is a nonlinear process, and temperature may increase in a stepwise manner. Periods of abrupt warming can trigger persistent changes in the state of ecosystems, also called regime shifts. The responses of ...
    • 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 ...
    • Modelled drift patterns of fish larvae link coastal morphology to seabird colony distribution 

      Sandvik, Hanno; Barrett, Robert T; Erikstad, Kjell E; Myksvoll, Mari Skuggedal; Vikebø, Frode Bendiksen; Yoccoz, Nigel Gilles; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon; Reiertsen, Tone; Skardhamar, Jofrid; Skern-Mauritzen, Mette; Systad, Geir Helge (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-05-13)
      Colonial breeding is an evolutionary puzzle, as the benefits of breeding in high densities are still not fully explained. Although the dynamics of existing colonies are increasingly understood, few studies have addressed ...
    • Ungulate population monitoring in an open tundra landscape:distance sampling versus total counts 

      Le Moullec, Mathilde; Pedersen, Åshild Ønvik; Yoccoz, Nigel Gilles; Aanes, Ronny; Tufto, Jarle; Hansen, Brage Bremset (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Researchers and wildlife managers strive for low bias and high precision (i.e. high accuracy) when estimating animal population sizes. Distance sampling is currently one of the most widely used monitoring methods. However, ...
