The mushroom season is underway in many places, and many will use their free time to harvest the field's crops. Although there are not that many mushrooms in the Arboretum yet, we have started mushroom control for those who may find mushrooms elsewhere.
Come to the University Gardens during the holidays! This summer we will have tours on various topics and in each of the gardens, led by members of our staff.
The latest issue of our Norwegian-language in-house journal Årringen is now available.
The cafe will be open again on Sundays (and some Saturdays) from 14th June to the end of September.
The main evolutionary lineages of cinquefoils are investigated in this recently published open access article from the Rosaceae Evolution research group at the University of Bergen.
The gardens remain open, but in the interests of public safety many of our events are no longer taking place.
Surprisingly high genetic diversity of common toad (Bufo bufo) populations under strong natural fragmentation (15.02.2016)
In theory, the genetic consequences of habitat fragmentation can be dramatic in animals. Decrease of habitat patch size and increase of patch isolation of local population might lead to smaller populations and more isolation. Such fragmented populations are expected to have less gene flow (i.e. sexual contact among different populations) and more genetic drift (i.e. the change in the frequency of... Read more
