Research topic


Odd Terje Sandlund

Major research experience: aquatic ecology, freshwater ecosystems (lakes and rivers), ecology of freshwater fishes, and exploitation of fish populations. Cross-disciplinary research (natural and social sciences) related to natural resources management and watershed management. Strategic and institutional development on conservation biology and biodiversity-related research, including development of cross-sectoral research collaboration. Development of multidisciplinary graduate university course on biodiversity. Participation in the national and international follow-up process to the Convention on Biological Diversity. Many years of experience advising national, regional and local authorities and private organisations regarding management of freshwater fish resources. Experience from developing countries includes research collaboration, environmental impact assessments, feasibility studies on fisheries, advice and evaluation of projects regarding natural resource management, assessment of environmental status, and programme strategies for environmental support.

Kari Elsa Ellingsen

The main part of my research activities is focused on biodiversity, its measurement and patterns, human impact and impacts of climate change on ecosystems. I have studied marine biodiversity patterns in different parts of the world in shallow waters, on the continental shelf and in the deep sea using data on benthos and fish communities. The work implies a large number of collaborations with scientists from Europe, New Zealand, Canada, Russia and China. Currently I am also focusing on terrestrial biodiversity studies. With regard to the measurement of biodiversity, I have focused on beta diversity, patterns of rare and common species and, in general, on the use of multivariate analyses.

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.
