• Climate Events Synchronize the Dynamics of a Resident Vertebrate Community in the High Arctic 

      Hansen, Brage Bremset; Grøtan, Vidar; Aanes, Ronny; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Stien, Audun; Fuglei, Eva; Ims, Rolf Anker; Yoccoz, Nigel; Pedersen, Åshild Ønvik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Recently accumulated evidence has documented a climate impact on the demography and dynamics of single species, yet the impact at the community level is poorly understood. Here, we show that in Svalbard in the high Arctic, ...
    • Climate fluctuations and differential survival of bridled and non-bridled Common Guillemots Uria aalge 

      Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Erikstad, Kjell E; Barrett, Robert T; Sandvik, Hanno; Yoccoz, Nigel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Climate fluctuations and its effects on ecological processes are evident in most areas worldwide but whether such climatic effects are induced phenotypic plasticity or whether animals adapt to the new environment through ...
    • Contributions from terrestrial and marine resources stabilize predator populations in a rapidly changing climate 

      Nater, Chloe Rebecca; Eide, Nina Elisabeth; Pedersen, Åshild Ønvik; Yoccoz, Nigel; Fuglei, Eva (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Climate change has different and sometimes divergent effects on terrestrial and marine food webs, and in coastal ecosystems, these effects are tightly interlinked. Responses of opportunistic coastal predators and scavengers ...
    • The Demographic buffering hypothesis: Evidence and challenges 

      Hilde, Christoffer Høyvik; Gamelon, Marlène; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Gaillard, Jean-Michel; Yoccoz, Nigel; Pelabon, Christophe (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      In (st)age-structured populations, the long-run population growth rate is negatively affected by temporal variation in vital rates. In most cases, natural selection should minimize temporal variation in the vital rates to ...
    • Strong migratory connectivity across meta-populations of sympatric North Atlantic seabirds 

      Merkel, Benjamin; Descamps, Sebastien; Yoccoz, Nigel; Grémillet, David; Fauchald, Per; Danielsen, Jóhannis; Daunt, Francis; Erikstad, Kjell E.; Ezhov, Aleksey V.; Harris, Mike P.; Gavrilo, Maria; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon; Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Systad, Geir Helge Rødli; Thórarinsson, Thorkell Lindberg; Wanless, Sarah; Strøm, Hallvard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Identifying drivers of population trends in migratory species is difficult, as they can face many stressors while moving through different areas and environments during the annual cycle. To understand the potential of ...
