      Rydgren, Knut; Halvorsen, Rune; Töpper, Joachim Paul; Auestad, Inger; Hamre, Liv Norunn; Jongejans, Eelke; Sulavik, Jan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      1. Species composition is a vital attribute of any ecosystem. Accordingly, ecological restoration often has the original, or “natural,” species composition as its target. However, we still lack adequate methods for predicting ...

      Rydgren, Knut; Auestad, Inger; Halvorsen, Rune; Hamre, Liv Norunn; Jongejans, Eelke; Töpper, Joachim Paul; Sulavik, Jan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      1. Restoration of degraded ecosystems may take decades or even centuries. Accordingly, information about the current direction and speed of recovery provided by methods for predicting time to recovery may give important ...

(Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      When plants establish outside their native range, their ability to adapt to the new environment is influenced by both demography and dispersal. However, the relative importance of these two factors is poorly understood. ...
    • How to induce defence responses in wild plant populations? Using bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) as example 

      Seldal, Tarald; Hegland, Stein Joar; Rydgren, Knut; Rodriguez-Saona, Cesar; Töpper, Joachim Paul (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Inducible plant defense is a beneficial strategy for plants, which imply that plants should allocate resources from growth and reproduction to defense when herbivores attack. Plant ecologist has often studied defense ...
    • Multiannual effects of induced plant defenses: Are defended plants good or bad neighbors? 

      Benevenuto, Rafael Fonseca; Hegland, Stein Joar; Töpper, Joachim Paul; Rydgren, Knut; Moe, Stein Ragnar; Rodriguez-Saona, Cesar; Seldal, Tarald (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Defenses induced by herbivore feeding or phytohormones such as methyl jasmonate (MeJA) can affect growth, reproduction, and herbivory, not only on the affected individual but also in its neighboring plants. Here, we report ...
    • Seed banks are biodiversity reservoirs: species–area relationships above versus below ground 

      Vandvik, Vigdis; Klanderud, Kari; Meineri, Eric Pierre F; Måren, Inger Elisabeth; Töpper, Joachim Paul (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
    • The devil is in the detail: non-additive and context-dependent plant population responses to increasing temperature and precipitation. Plant demography in a warmer & wetter climate 

      Töpper, Joachim Paul; Meineri, E.; Olsen, Siri Lie; Rydgren, Knut; Skarpaas, Olav; Vandvik, Vigdis (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      In climate change ecology, simplistic research approaches may yield unrealistically simplistic answers to often more complicated problems. In particular, the complexity of vegetation responses to global climate change begs ...
