Automated analysis of wildlife camera monitoring, RiS ID: 11829

During the first part of my thesis, I will be creating a methodology for automated analysis of camera monitoring data of the nests of geese and terns using artificial intelligence. In order to test if this program works, I will need to obtain enough new camera data of nests on Svalbard and put th...

Social dynamics and eco-evolutionary feedbacks in wild populations

Å unngå befolkningskollaps på grunn av klimaendringer er en av de største utfordringene for vår generasjon. For effektivt å kunne bruke de begrensede ressursene som er tildelt bevaringsarbeid, må vi forstå egenskapene til organismer som påvirker deres sårbarhet for endringer i miljøet. En av de m...

Personalities in fear behaviour: relevance for management. RiS ID: 11153

Geese differ in their reaction to human disturbance. Previous work has linked the degree of reaction to personality and habituation. In Kongsfjorden (near Ny-A°lesund), there is a marked population of barnacle geese which have been tested for different personality traits. Now, we want to make a l...

Ethical capture and killing methods in trawl fisheries

Det har vært begrenset fokus på velferd og andre etiske aspekter ved fangst og avliving av villfisk. Innen havbruk er fiskevelferd tatt inn i lover og reguleringer, mens dette er vanskeligere for fangst av villfisk. Villfisk er likevel inkludert i Dyrevelferdsloven, og i 2014 gav Rådet for dyreet...

Sperm, speciation and promiscuity - an integrated analysis of evolution in passerine birds

One of the great puzzles in evolutionary biology is how the extreme diversity of mating systems has evolved under the constraints of a basically invariable mode of sexual reproduction; the fusion of two haploid gametes. A good illustration of this enigma is the large variation in promiscuity amo...

Coral Reef Fish Coloration: Sexual Selection, Diversity and Speciation [revised Jan. 09]

Measuring Genetic Mating Systems and Sexual Selection Using a Sex-Role Reversed Pipefish.

Summary The interaction between molecular biology and animal behaviour has sparked a new understanding of mating systems and sexual selection.

Sperm morphology and function in passerine birds

The prime function of sperm cells is to fertilize eggs. Despite this common purpose, there is a tremendous diversity among animal taxa in sperm phenotypes. Part of the variation can be attributed to phylogenetic relatedness, and sperm are often used as di agnostic traits in taxonomy. But there is...

Male sperm control

Mutations in the male germ-line are common and in highly monogamous species males may benefit from selecting against own, mutated sperm. This will, in turn, reduce a male’s chance of fertilizing, but, on the other hand, prevent loss of DNA order down the family line. The importance of sperm selec...

Hybridization in birds as studied by cross-fostering in the wild

Female promiscuity unconstrained by male paternity guards: an experiment on bluethroats

Recent studies have shown that females benefit from performing EPCs, by producing offsprin g of higher reproductive value. In blueth...
