• The MIAmaxent R package: Variable transformation and model selection for species distribution models 

      Vollering, Julien; Halvorsen, Rune; Mazzoni, Sabrina (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The widely used “Maxent” software for modeling species distributions from presence‐only data (Phillips et al., Ecological Modelling, 190, 2006, 231) tends to produce models with high‐predictive performance but low‐ecological ...
    • Molecular and ecological plant defense responses along an elevational gradient in a boreal ecosystem 

      Benevenuto, Rafael Fonseca; Seldal, Tarald; Polashock, James; Moe, Stein Ragnar; Rodriguez-Saona, Cesar; Gillespie, Mark Andrew Kusk; Hegland, Stein Joar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Plants have the capacity to alter their phenotype in response to environmental factors, such as herbivory, a phenomenon called phenotypic plasticity. However, little is known on how plant responses to herbivory are modulated ...
    • 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 ...
