    • Classification and Mapping of Benthic Biotopes in Arctic and Sub-Arctic Norwegian Waters 

      Buhl-Mortensen, Pål; Dolan, Margaret; Ross, Rebecca; Gonzalez-Mirelis, Genoveva; Buhl-Mortensen, Lene; Bjarnadóttir, Lilja Rún; Albretsen, Jon (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      In this paper, we describe the species composition of biotopes occurring in a wide range of environments and present their geographic distribution based on results from quantitative analyses of video-records collected as ...
    • Discerning the Management-Relevant Ecology and Distribution of Sea Pens (Cnidaria: Pennatulacea) in Norway and Beyond 

      Ross, Rebecca; Gonzalez-Mirelis, Genoveva; Lozano, Pablo; Buhl-Mortensen, Pål (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Sea pens are considered to be of conservation relevance according to multiple international legislations and agreements. Consequently, any information about their ecology and distribution should be of use to management ...
    • Marinbiologisk mangfold i Andfjorden marine verneområde 

      Husa, Vivian; Gonzalez-Mirelis, Genoveva; Kutti, Tina; Buhl-Mortensen, Pål; Søvik, Guldborg; Jensen, Gjertrud; Bakkeplass, Kjell Gunnar; Skjoldal, Hein Rune (Rapport fra havforskningen;2020 - 30, Research report, 2020)
      Andfjorden marine verneområde er et stort område som strekker seg fra fjord til hav. Området har en variert topografi som gir levested for en stor variasjon av marine arter. Her finnes rekefelt og gyteområder for torsk, ...
    • Modeling the Distribution of Habitat-Forming, Deep-Sea Sponges in the Barents Sea: The Value of Data 

      Gonzalez-Mirelis, Genoveva; Ross, Rebecca; Albretsen, Jon; Buhl-Mortensen, Pål (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The use of species occurrence as a proxy for habitat type is widespread, probably because it allows the use of species distribution modeling (SDM) to cost-effectively map the distribution of e.g., vulnerable marine ecosystems. ...
    • Modelling benthic habitats and biotopes off the coast of Norway to support spatial management. 

      Gonzalez-Mirelis, Genoveva; Buhl-Mortensen, Pål (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-06-25)
      Habitat conservation, and hence conservation of biodiversity hinges on knowledge of the spatial distribution of habitats, not least those that are particularly valuable or vulnerable. In offshore Norway, benthic habitats ...
    • Using Spatial Validity and Uncertainty Metrics to Determine the Relative Suitability of Alternative Suites of Oceanographic Data for Seabed Biotope Prediction. A Case Study from the Barents Sea, Norway 

      Dolan, Margaret; Ross, Rebecca; Albretsen, Jon; Skardhamar, Jofrid; Gonzalez-Mirelis, Genoveva; Bellec, Valerie Karin; Buhl-Mortensen, Pål; Bjarnadóttir, Lilja Rún (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The use of habitat distribution models (HDMs) has become common in benthic habitat mapping for combining limited seabed observations with full-coverage environmental data to produce classified maps showing predicted habitat ...
