• An integrated population model for a long-lived ungulate: more efficient data use with Bayesian methods 

      Lee, Aline Magdalena; Bjørkvoll, Eirin Marie; Hansen, Brage Bremset; Albon, Steve D.; Stien, Audun; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Engen, Steinar; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Loe, Leif Egil; Grøtan, Vidar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      We develop an integrated population model for Svalbard reindeer Rangifer tarandus platyrhynchus, and demonstrate how this type of model can be used to extract more information from the data and separate different sources ...
    • Decomposing demographic contributions to the effective population size with moose as a case study 

      Lee, Aline Magdalena; Myhre, Ane Marlene; Markussen, Stine Svalheim; Engen, Steinar; Solberg, Erling Johan; Haanes, Hallvard; Røed, Knut; Herfindal, Ivar; Heim, Morten; Sæther, Bernt-Erik (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Levels of random genetic drift are influenced by demographic factors, such as mating system, sex ratio and age structure. The effective population size (N e) is a useful measure for quantifying genetic drift. Evaluating ...
    • Demographic buffering of life histories? Implications of the choice of measurement scale 

      Bjørkvoll, Eirin Marie; Lee, Aline Magdalena; Grøtan, Vidar; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Stien, Audun; Engen, Steinar; Albon, Steve D.; Loe, Leif Egil; Hansen, Brage Bremset (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Life-history theory predicts that the vital rates that influence population growth the most should be buffered against environmental fluctuations due to selection for reduced variation. However, it remains unclear whether ...
    • Demographic routes to variability and regulation in bird populations 

      Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Grøtan, Vidar; Engen, Steinar; Coulson, Tim; Grant, Peter R.; Visser, Marcel E.; Brommer, Jon E.; Grant, B. Rosemary; Gustafsson, Lars; Hatchwell, Ben J.; Jerstad, Kurt; Karell, Patrik; Pietiäinen, Hannu; Roulin, Alexandre; Røstad, Ole Wiggo; Weimerskirch, Henri (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
    • Harvest-induced phenotypic selection in an island population of moose, Alces alces 

      Kvalnes, Thomas; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Haanes, Hallvard; Røed, Knut; Engen, Steinar; Solberg, Erling Johan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Empirical evidence strongly indicates that human exploitation has frequently led to rapid evolutionary changes in wild populations, yet the mechanisms involved are often poorly understood. Here, we applied a recently ...
    • Interactions between demography and environmental effects are important determinants of population dynamics 

      Gamelon, Marlène; Grøtan, Vidar; Nilsson, Anna L. K.; Engen, Steinar; Hurrell, James W.; Jerstad, Kurt; Phillips, Adam S.; Røstad, Ole Wiggo; Slagsvold, Tore; Walseng, Bjørn; Stenseth, Nils Christian; Sæther, Bernt-Erik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Climate change will affect the population dynamics of many species, yet the consequences for the long-term persistence of populations are poorly understood. A major reason for this is that density-dependent feedback effects ...
