In Scandinavia there is a growing concern that the reindeer husbandry is in a state of crisis, but results from our recent study indicates that the Swedish reindeer husbandry is in fact in better condition now compared to the past (1945-1965). Continue reading
Reindeer Husbandry in a Globalizing North – resilience, adaptations and pathways for Actions (ReiGN)
It’s the time of the year when we eagerly await the results from the year’s (many) research proposals.
Predatory species compete with humans for the use of resources such as livestock and an important tool for managing possible conflicts is damage compensation schemes distributing the costs between those who benefit from conservation and those who suffer the costs … Continue reading
Risk-sensitive reproductive allocation: fitness consequences of body mass losses in two contrasting environments
Just got a paper published in Ecology and Evolution. It is basically about reindeer life history and risk sensitivity.
Just got a paper published in PLOS ONE. Basically, it provides the rationale for why it pays off for pastoralists to keep large herds of livestock.
While not a particularly good quality map, it at least show the area my latest publication pertains to (Aru Basin). It is published in the journal International Journal of Sustainable Development & World Ecology. The topic of the paper is … Continue reading
