Depositions of ammonia and nitrogen oxides have heavily increased since the mid 1900’s, and nitrogen additions in grasslands have shown to affect grass biomass, soil pH and nutrient availability. But how do these grasslands recover if nitrogen additions stop, and for how long does the added nitrogen stay in the systems?… Read more →
Effects of supplemented water on mating behavior and reproductive success of female bean beetles, Callosobruchus maculatus.
The females of species Callosobruchus maculatus, bean beetles, are polyandrous, which receives nuptial gifts from males during the copulations. In this project you will handle the bean beetles at close up and follow them through their life cycle to observe the effects of supplemented water on mating behaviour and reproductive success of female bean beetles.… Read more →
What will happen when the alpine regions in Norway become warmer? What will happen to the existing alpine plants when new species from the lowlands colonize the mountains? Do you want to be a part of answering these questions, and do field work in beautiful mountain regions in Norway? Join us! Project description INCLINE is… Read more →
Hva skjer med økosystemet i alpine strøk når det blir varmere og våtere? Klimaendringene påvirker samspillet mellom arter både direkte og indirekte, deriblant trofiske interaksjoner mellom dyr som fugler, gnagere og insekter, og planter. Hvordan kan vi ved undersøkelser av frøpredasjon få en bedre forståelse for disse komplekse samspillene? Sett av en uke i sommer til å undersøke… Read more →
