Erik Framstad

Main scientific experience covers population and habitat ecology of small mammals in boreal forests and mountain ecosystems. Applied research and consultancy work includes studies and assessments of boreal forest ecology, protected areas, ecological effects of agriculture and forestry on species and ecosystems, environmental impact assessments of infrastructure development projects, development of indicators for biodiversity, and monitoring of terrestrial biodiversity.

Main administrative experience covers management of NINA's research department in Oslo, as well as coordination of terrestrial ecological monitoring and major research projects and programmes on boreal forests or cultural landscapes.

Jarle Werner Bjerke

  • Research on climate effects, especially related to climate change and extreme weather events in boreal and Arctic areas;
  • Experimental studies for providing baselines for modeling og on-going and future ecosystem change due to climate change;
  • Grazing ecology, especially related to effects of reindeer and goose;
  • Anthropogenic effects, especially changes in land use (e.g. afforestation, industry, reduced outfield grazing) and air pollution, plus indirect effects via climate change, as listed above;
  • Evaluations of biological diversity
  • Taxonomy and systematics, especially on some lichen genera
  • Impact assessments prior to planned land use changes.

Tycho Anker-Nilssen

  • Population biologists with expertise in seabird ecology, including
  • Time-series studies of demography, feeding ecology, trophic interactions and other climate-related responses of seabirds since 1981.
  • National mapping and monitoring of seabird distribution and population trends.
  • Studies of seabird movements (using satellite transmitters and loggers), morphometry and population origin. 
  • Environmental impact assessments and vulnerability modelling, e.g. related to seabirds and offshore oil exploration. 
  • Well experienced with respect to electronic data processing and statistical analyses. 
  • Scientific supervisor for a number of MSc students and some experience as a university lecturer and examiner.

Kjell Einar Erikstad

My main research activity has been in population ecology, lifehistory adaptions and genetical structures of populations. Research has focused on ecological theory and includes a variety of animals (especially birds) both in terrestrial and marine environment. Most studies have been carried out in arctic and subarctic areas and I have also been involved in population studies on birds in the Antarctic. During recent years I have also studied the relationships between organochlorine contaminations and its effect on life history traits in Glaucous Gulls in the arctic.

Martin Arne Svenning

Hoveddelen av aktiviteten er relatert til økologi og livshistorie hos resident og anandrom laksefisk, og knyttet nært opp mot forvaltning. God felterfaring, spesielt i arktiske strøk (Svalbard, Nord-Norge og Nord-Vest Russland). Forskningsaktiviteten involverer en kombinasjon av feltinnsamling, bearbeiding i laboratorium og teoretiske/statistiske analyser.

Audun Stien

Ecologist interested in understanding the effect of climate and intra- and intersprcific interactions on demographic processes, population dynamics and biodiversity in natural systems. Numerate, with a strong background in the application of modern statistical methods in the analysis of complex data. Expertise in the use of statistical methods in combination with deterministic and stochastic mathematical models to understand ecological phenomena. Experienced with the planning and successful accomplishment of ecological research in arctic ecosystem.

Jane Uhd Jepsen

Ecologist with expertise in northern populations and ecosystems, in particular plant-herbivore interactions in sub-arctic birch forests and the forest-tundra ecotone. Among my main interests are studies of the spatio-temporal dynamics of outbreaking geometrid moth species, and the effects of insect outbreaks on forest ecosystems. I am an experienced used of GIS and remote sensing in population and landscape studies.
