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.

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.
