• 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 ...
    • Moose Alces alces habitat use at multiple temporal scales in a human-altered landscape 

      Bjørneraas, Kari; Solberg, Erling Johan; Herfindal, Ivar; Van Moorter, Bram; Rolandsen, Christer Moe; Tremblay, Jean-Pierre; Skarpe, Christina; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Eriksen, Rune; Astrup, Rasmus (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      Habitat alteration by humans may change the supply of food and cover for wild ungulates, but few studies have examined how these resources are utilised over time by individuals of different sex and reproductive status. We ...
    • Seasonal and annual variation in the diet of brown bears Ursus arctos in the boreal forest of southcentral Sweden 

      Stenset, Nina Emilie; Lutnæs, Paul Antoni Nilsen; Bjarnadóttir, Valgerður; Dahle, Bjørn Steinar; Fossum, Kristin Høivik; Jigsved, Patrick; Johansen, Thomas; Neumann, Wiebke; Opseth, Ole; Rønning, Oddmund; Steyaert, Sam; Zedrosser, Andreas; Brunberg, Sven; Swenson, Jon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Understanding a species' feeding ecology is essential for successful management and conservation, because food abundance can influence body mass, survival, reproductive success, movements, and habitat use. We describe ...
    • Spatio-temporal variation in large herbivore pressure in Norway during 1949-1999: has decreased grazing by livestock been countered by increased browsing by cervids? 

      Austrheim, Gunnar; Solberg, Erling Johan; Mysterud, Atle (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      During recent decades, rough livestock grazing has decreased markedly on unimproved land (i.e. natural and seminatural habitats) across most of Europe, whilst the number of wild cervids has increased. However, we still ...
    • 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, ...
    • Weather affects temporal niche partitioning between moose and livestock 

      Herfindal, Ivar; Lande, Unni Støbet; Solberg, Erling Johan; Rolandsen, Christer Moe; Roer, Ole; Wam, Hilde Karine (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Co-existing species at the same trophic level often segregate with respect to diet, habitat use, or spatial distribution, reducing their direct competition for resources. However, temporal patterns in species-specific ...
