  • Fragmentation in calcareous grasslands: species specialization matters 

    Olsen, Siri Lie; Evju, Marianne; Endrestøl, Anders (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Habitat fragmentation resulting from anthropogenic land-use change may negatively affect both biodiversity and ecosystem structure and function. However, susceptibility to fragmentation varies between species and may be ...
  • Post-1980 shifts in the sensitivity of boreal tree growth to North Atlantic Ocean dynamics and seasonal climate Tree growth responses to North Atlantic Ocean dynamics
