      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, ...

      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 ...
    • 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 ...
