(2017) - Journal articleA number of classical approaches to nonparametric regression have recently been extended to the case of functional predictors. This article introduces a new method of this type, which extends intermediate-rank penalized ...
Individual variation in reproductive behaviour is linked to temporal heterogeneity in predation risk (2018-01-10) - Journal articleVariation in predation risk is a major driver of ecological and evolutionary change, and, in turn, of geographical variation in behaviour. While predation risk is rarely constant in natural populations, the extent to which ...
Divergent regulation of insulin-like growth factor binding protein genes in cultured Atlantic salmon myotubes under different models of catabolism and anabolism (2017-06-01) - Journal articleMuch attention has been given to insulin-like growth factor (Igf) pathways that regulate the balance of skeletal muscle protein synthesis and breakdown in response to a range of extrinsic and intrinsic signals. However, ...
Mediterranean mesocarnivores in spatially structured managed landscapes : community organisation in time and space (2017-01-16) - Journal articleIn the multi-functional and biodiverse cork oak landscapes of Iberia (Montado), agro-silvo-pastoral practices promote landscape heterogeneity and create intricate habitat and resource availability patterns. We used ...
(2017-10-09) - Journal articlePolar bears have experienced a rapid loss of sea-ice habitat in the Barents Sea. Monitoring this subpopulation focuses on the effects on polar bear demography. In August 2015, we conducted a survey in the Norwegian Arctic ...
