Det første av to feltkurs i BIOS4120 er gjennomført med koronatilpasninger. Feltkurset tar med studentene på tvers av Norge for å se på naturvariasjon. I september arrangeres det andre og siste feltkurset, med opplæring i kartlegging.
På initiativ fra Landbruksdirektoratet har Rune Halvorsen, Anders Bryn, Harald Bratli og Peter Horvath laget et konsensuskart fra et område på 500 x 500 m i Biri, Gjøvik kommune. Resultatene er nå gitt ut i NHMs rapportserie, som rapport nr. 94: Naturtypekart etter NiN for et område omkring Unsetsætra (Biri, Gjøvik, Oppland)
New paper out now: composite landscape predictors improve distribution models of ecosystem types. Trond Simensen, Peter Horvath, Julien Vollering, Lars Erikstad, Rune Halvorsen, and Anders Bryn are the authors behind this effort to improve distribution models of ecosystem types.
The past few months have been challenging, and research and teaching in GEco has had to adapt to a changing and different situation. We are lucky to keep working, and have digital morning coffee meetings to catch up with each other.
Martha Karijord recently defended her master thesis on the endangered Northern dragonhead (Dracocephalum ruyschiana). She investigated how the populations relate to different habitats, with implications for conservation of this species.
Øyvind Lynne recently defended his master thesis, where he compared unequal probability sampling with random stratified sampling with the aim of making distribution models and finding rare species.
Ariane Karlsen recently defended her master thesis on urban nature and NiN in Oslo. She also became the first GEco student to defend their master thesis digitally.
GEco's Anders Bryn is among the co-authors of a new paper out in Nature Climate Change: Complexity revealed in the greening of the Arctic. Isla H. Myers-Smith and Jeffrey T. Kerby are the lead authors of the paper.
We asked hundreds of children at the Oslo Science Expo what they think will happen with the trees in the mountains when Norway gets warmer and wetter. Almost all said the trees will die. This wrong answer inspired us to write a popular science piece on the feedbacks between vegetation and climate, now available (in Norwegian) in Aftenposten Viten.
