• 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 ...
    • Behavioral buffering of extreme weather events in a high-Arctic herbivore 

      Loe, Leif Egil; Hansen, Brage Bremset; Stien, Audun; Albon, Steve D.; Bischof, Richard; Carlsson, Anja M.; Irvine, Justin; Meland, Morten; Rivrud, Inger Maren; Ropstad, Erik; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Mysterud, Atle (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      As global warming advances, there is a growing concern about the impact of extreme weather events on ecosystems. In the Arctic, more frequent unseasonal warm spells and rain-on- snow events in winter cause changes in ...
    • Contrasting effects of summer and winter warming onbody mass explain population dynamics in a food-limitedArctic herbivore 

      Albon, Steve D.; Irvine, R. Justin; Halvorsen, Odd; Langvatn, Rolf; Loe, Leif Egil; Ropstad, Erik; Veiberg, Vebjørn; van der Wal, René; Bjørkvoll, Eirin Marie; Duff, Elizabeth I.; Hansen, Brage Bremset; Lee, Aline Magdalena; Tveraa, Torkild; Stien, Audun (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      The cumulative effects of climate warming on herbivore vital rates and population dynamics are hard to predict, given that the expected effects differ between seasons. In the Arctic, warmer summers enhance plant growth ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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)

    • More frequent extreme climate events stabilize reindeer population dynamics 

      Hansen, Brage Bremset; Gamelon, Marlène; Albon, Steve D.; Lee, Aline Magdalena; Stien, Audun; Irvine, Robert Justin; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Loe, Leif Egil; Ropstad, Erik; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Grøtan, Vidar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Extreme climate events often cause population crashes but are difficult to account for in population-dynamic studies. Especially in long-lived animals, density dependence and demography may induce lagged impacts of ...
    • The neglected season: Warmer autumns counteract harsher winters and promote population growth in Arctic reindeer 

      Loe, Leif Egil; Liston, Glen E.; Pigeon, Gabriel; Barker, Kristin; Horvitz, Nir; Stien, Audun; Forchhammer, Mads C.; Getz, Wayne M.; Irvine, Robert Justin; Lee, Aline Magdalena; Movik, Lars K.; Mysterud, Atle; Pedersen, Åshild Ønvik; Reinking, Adele K.; Ropstad, Erik; Trondrud, Liv Monica; Tveraa, Torkild; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Hansen, Brage Bremset; Albon, Steve D. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Arctic ungulates are experiencing the most rapid climate warming on Earth. While concerns have been raised that more frequent icing events may cause die-offs, and earlier springs may generate a trophic mismatch in phenology, ...
    • Sea ice loss increases genetic isolation in a high Arctic ungulate metapopulation 

      Peeters, Bart; Le Moullec, Mathilde; Raeymaekers, Joost A. M.; Fredricson Marquez, Jonatan; Røed, Knut; Pedersen, Åshild Ønvik; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Loe, Leif Egil; Hansen, Brage Bremset (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Sea ice loss may have dramatic consequences for population connectivity, extinction–colonization dynamics, and even the persistence of Arctic species subject to climate change. This is of particular concern in face of ...
    • Spatiotemporal patterns of rain-on-snow and basal ice in high Arctic Svalbard: detection of a climate-cryosphere regime shift 

      Peeters, Bart; Pedersen, Åshild Ønvik; Loe, Leif Egil; Isaksen, Ketil; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Stien, Audun; Kohler, Jack; Gallet, Jean-Charles; Aanes, Ronny; Hansen, Brage Bremset (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Spatiotemporal patterns of rain-on-snow and basal ice in high Arctic Svalbard: detection of a climate-cryosphere regime shift
