Predicting effects of climate change on Svalbard reindeer population dynamics - a mechanistic approach
The goal of this cross-disciplinary project is to examine the mechanisms, relative importance and future implications of climate drivers in Svalbard reindeer population dynamics. …
Assessment Norsk Polarintistutt har i sitt tildelingsbrev for 2016 fra Klima - og miljødepartementet fått i oppdrag å lage kunnskapsgrunnlag for forvaltningsplanen Sentral-Spitsbergen. …
There is a lack of studies on how arctic ungulates respond behaviourally to climate-induced changes in resource availability. Understanding behavioural adaptations is needed to be able to predict population-dynamical responses. …
This study will investigate to what degree variation in adult sex ratio of Svalbard reindeer Rangifer tarandus platyrhynchus is affected by density-dependence and changes in vegetation and climate. …
