A climate for seed predation: Precipitation affects seed removal by the major groups of granivores differently across boreal, sub-alpine and alpine grasslands (The University of Bergen, 2018-12-15)Granivory, the seed predation by animals, plays an important role for plant and animal populations, and impact species composition and functioning of ecosystems. The intensity in granivory depends on various biotic and ...Master thesis
The effect of grazing and hiking on the elevational range shift of vascular plant species in the Scandes during recent decades (The University of Bergen, 2016-06-01)Resurvey of historical plant distribution data can provide valuable information about how plant communities have changed, a topic which is of great interest due to recent decades of climate and land use change. Range ...Master thesis
Plant-pollinator interactions in the alpine: Landscape heterogeneity acts as a potential buffer against climate-change induced mismatch in the pollinator-generalist Ranunculus acris (The University of Bergen, 2018-06-19)Phenology changes are a common response to global warming and the timing of phenological events is important for symbiotic interactions, such as pollination. If symbiotic species respond differently to global warming, this ...Master thesis
Plastic Population Effects and Conservative Leaf Traits in a Reciprocal Transplant Experiment Simulating Climate Warming in the Himalayas (Frontiers Media, 2018-07-30)Climate warming poses considerable challenges for alpine plant species, especially for competitively inferior ones with resource-conservative adaptations to cold climates. The Himalayas are warming at rates considerably ...Journal article
