      Marine ecosystems, particularly in high‐latitude regions such as the Arctic, have been significantly affected by human activities and contributions to climate change. Evaluating how fish populations responded to past changes ...
    • Climate change opens new frontiers for marine species in the Arctic: Current trends and future invasion risks 

      Chan, Farrah T; Stanislawczyk, Keara; Sneekes, Anna C; Dvoretsky, Alexander; Gollasch, Stephan; Minchin, Dan; David, Matej; Jelmert, Anders; Albretsen, Jon; Bailey, Sarah A (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Climate change and increased anthropogenic activities are expected to elevate the potential of introducing nonindigenous species (NIS) into the Arctic. Yet, the knowledge base needed to identify gaps and priorities for NIS ...
    • Homogenization and miniaturization of habitat structure in temperate marine forests 

      Pessarrodona, Albert; Filbee-Dexter, Karen; Alcoverro, Teresa; Boada, Jordi; Feehan, Colette J.; Fredriksen, Stein; Grace, Sean P.; Nakamura, Yohei; Narvaez, Carla A.; Norderhaug, Kjell Magnus; Wernberg, Thomas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Humans are rapidly transforming the structural configuration of the planet's ecosystems, but these changes and their ecological consequences remain poorly quantified in underwater habitats. Here, we show that the loss of ...
    • Multi-decadal environmental change in the Barents Sea recorded by seal teeth 

      de la Vega, Camille; Buchanan, Pearse J.; Tagliabue, Alessandro; Hopkins, Joanne E.; Jeffreys, Rachel M.; Frie, Anne Kirstine Højholt; Biuw, Martin; Kershaw, Joanna; Grecian, James; Norman, Louisa; Smout, Sophie; Haug, Tore; Mahaffey, Claire (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      Multiple environmental forcings, such as warming and changes in ocean circulation and nutrient supply, are affecting the base of Arctic marine ecosystems, with cascading effects on the entire food web through bottom-up ...
    • Non‐linearity in interspecific interactions in response to climate change: cod and haddock as an example 

      Durant, Joel Marcel; Ono, Kotaro; Stenseth, Nils Christian; Langangen, Øystein (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Climate change has profound ecological effects, yet our understanding of how trophic interactions among species are affected by climate change is still patchy. The sympatric Atlantic haddock and cod are co‐occurring across ...
    • Novel feeding interactions amplify the impact of species redistribution on an Arctic food web 

      Pecuchet, Laurene; Blanchet, Marie-Anne; Frainer, Andre barbosa; Husson, Bérengère; Jørgensen, Lis Lindal; Kortsch, Susanne; Primicerio, Raul (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Species are redistributing globally in response to climate warming, impacting ecosystem functions and services. In the Barents Sea, poleward expansion of boreal species and a decreased abundance of Arctic species are causing ...
    • The rise of a marine generalist predator and the fall of beta diversity 

      Ellingsen, Kari; Yoccoz, Nigel; Tveraa, Torkild; Frank, Kenneth T.; Johannesen, Edda; Anderson, Marti J.; Dolgov, Andrey V.; Shackell, Nancy L. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Determining the importance of physical and biological drivers in shaping biodiversity in diverse ecosystems remains a global challenge. Advancements have been made towards this end in large marine ecosystems with several ...
    • Sea ice decline drives biogeographical shifts of key Calanus species in the central Arctic Ocean 

      Ershova, Elizaveta A.; Kosobokova, Ksenia N.; Banas, Neil S.; Ellingsen, Ingrid; Niehoff, Barbara; Hildebrandt, Nicole; Hirche, Hans-Juergen (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      In recent decades, the central Arctic Ocean has been experiencing dramatic decline in sea ice coverage, thickness and extent, which is expected to have a tremendous impact on all levels of Arctic marine life. Here, we ...
    • Spatial variability of the plankton trophic interaction in the North Sea: a new feature after the early 1970s 

      Llope, Marcos; Licandro, Priscilla; Chan, Kung-Sik; Stenseth, Nils Christian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011-08-24)
      Traditionally, marine ecosystem structure was thought to be bottom-up controlled. In recent years, a number of studies have highlighted the importance of top-down regulation. Evidence is accumulating that the type of trophic ...
    • Successive extreme climatic events lead to immediate, large-scale, and diverse responses from fish in the Arctic 

      Husson, Berengere; Lind, Sigrid; Fossheim, Maria; Solvang, Hiroko Kato; Skern-Mauritzen, Mette; Pecuchet, Laurene; Ingvaldsen, Randi Brunvær; Dolgov, Andrey V.; Primicerio, Raul (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
