New study shows how different size-selective harvesting regimes can influence susceptibility of guppies to an ectoparasite.
Endre has started his master project where he is studying differences in the escape response of guppies.
Arendalsuka 2022 has started, and our centre leaders are part of the program on multiple occasions. The yearly political festival covers a wide range of topics and activities, but Inger Måren and Vigdis Vandvik will appear on stage to discuss the nature crisis, how to bring a sustainability mindset to science education, and ways in which nature can be given a voice in our economic system.
The paper published earlier this year showing that infidelity can promote cooperation among male pied flycatchers has sparked some discussion.
“Sustainable use of wild species is key to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals,” says Professor Jeppe Kolding at the University of Bergen. He is one of 87 international experts co-writing a new report out Friday 8 July 2022.
PostDoc Alicia Donellan Barraclough recently received funding for her project ACTIONABLE from The Norwegian Research Council, under the theme "Areas under pressure". The project is scheduled to start summer 2023. Read more about the project in Alicia's own words below.
We are very pleased and proud to congratulate Dr. Alicia Donnellan Barraclough for receiving funding from the Norwegian Research Council to execute her interdisciplinary project: “ACTIONABLE - Adaptive Co-management to enhance biocultural diversity and sustainable development in coastal communities”.
The online exhibition presents works-in-process of young scientists from the EvoCELL network. The researchers are studying animal evolution from a cellular perspective, by applying cutting-edge technologies to uncover a previously invisible world.
On Saturday the 23rd of April we showcased Nordhordland UNESCO Biosphere Reserve at the knowledge festival "OPPLEV på Marineholmen", arranged by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.
Have a look at our course portfolio for spring 2022!
Starting a new international project in the middle of the covid-19 pandemic, has meant almost a year of digital meetings for the partners of the CULTIVATE project. In the beginning of March 2022, we finally managed to get together for an in-person meeting in the beautiful Třeboň Basin to discuss next steps.
We are excited to announce a new PhD position based at the Department of Archaeology, History, Cultural Studies and Religion. The succesful candidate will be part of CeSAM and follow up on the enthological research that has been done during the Lindås project in the 1970s.
February 21-22 the original model areas of the Lindås project were revisited after 50 years, in preparation for an upcoming re-sampling to assess the rate and direction of land-use change, nature’s benefit to people and landscape multifunctionality.
Publishing data and articles is one of the most important things a researcher does. It is then very important that your publications get noticed and used in further science – and that often means cited.
New study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that infidelity can promote cooperation among male pied flycatchers.
In 2021, we announced our first ‘CeSAM’s Fast-Track Initiative’ grants. We had many strong applications, of which four received funding.
It is essential to examine whether the mathematical description of marine food webs reflect the ecosystems they represent. A new proposal is integrating multiple mathematical disciplines and this requires collaboration on an international front.
