The effects of warming climate on parasite-reindeer dynamics in the Arctic. RiS ID: 11856

Parasite and hence parasite-host interactions might change under changing abiotic conditions. A highly understudied but important factor in understanding host-parasite dynamics under a changing climate is how behaviour of parasites and hence contact with hosts could change under a changing climat...

Timing and origin of Miocene flood volcanism on Spitsbergen: the Seidfjellet Formation revisited (RiS ID 12088)

Mantle-derived volcanism accompanied the Cenozoic lithosphere evolution of the NE Greenland and NW Barents Sea shelves during final separation of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. It is unclear, however, to what extent continental breakup was influenced by deep-sourced mantle plume...
