    • Implications of the forage maturation hypothesis for activity of partially migratory male and female deer 

      Debeffe, Lucie Isabelle; Rivrud, Inger Maren; Brekkum, Øystein; Meisingset, Erling L.; Mysterud, Atle (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017-12-21)
      Partial migration is common in a large variety of taxa in seasonally variable environments. Understanding the mechanisms underlying migration is important, as migration affects individual fi tness. Migratory herbivores ...
    • Interaction effects between weather and space use onharvesting effort and patterns in red deer 

      Rivrud, Inger Maren; Meisingset, Erling L.; Loe, Leif Egil; Mysterud, Atle (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Most cervid populations in Europe and North America are managed through selective harvesting, often with age‐ and sex‐specific quotas, with a large influence on the population growth rate. Less well understood is how ...
    • Right on track? Performance of satellite telemetry in terrestrial wildlife research 

      Hofman, M.P.G.; Hayward, M.W.; Heim, Morten; Marchand, P.; Rolandsen, Christer Moe; Mattisson, Jenny; Urbano, Ferdinando; Heurich, Marco; Mysterud, Atle; Melzheimer, Jörg; Morellet, Nicolas; Voigt, Ulrich; Allen, B.L.; Gehr, B.; Rouco, C.; Ullmann, W.; Holand, Øystein; Jørgensen, Nicolai Hermann; Steinheim, Geir; Cagnacci, Fransesca; Kroeschel, Max; Kaczensky, Petra; Buuveibaatar, Bayarbaatar; Payne, J.C.; Palmegiani, I.; Jerina, K.; Kjellander, P.; Johansson, Ö.; LaPoint, S.; Bayrakcismith, R.; Linnell, John Durrus; Zaccaroni, M.; Jorge, M.L.S.; Oshima, J.E.F.; Songhurst, A.; Fischer, C.; Mc Bride Jr., R.T.; Thompson, J.J.; Streif, S.; Sandfordt, R.; Bonenfant, Christophe; Drouilly, M.; Klapproth, M.; Zinner, D.; Yarnell, R.; Stronza, A.; Wilmott, L.; Meisingset, Erling L.; Thaker, M.; Vanak, A.T.; Odden, John (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-05-09)
      Satellite telemetry is an increasingly utilized technology in wildlife research, and current devices can track individual animal movements at unprecedented spatial and temporal resolutions. However, as we enter the golden ...
