• Analyzing dynamic species abundance distributions using generalized linear mixed models 

      Solbu, Erik Blystad; van der Veen, Bert; Herfindal, Ivar; Hovstad, Knut Anders (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022-05-12)
      Understanding the mechanisms of ecological community dynamics and how they could be affected by environmental changes is important. Population dynamic models have well known ecological parameters that describe key ...
    • Model-based ordination for species with unequal niche widths 

      van der Veen, Bert; Hui, Francis K. C.; Hovstad, Knut Anders; Solbu, Erik Blystad; OHara, Robert Brian (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-03-25)
      1. It is common practice for ecologists to examine species niches in the study of community composition. The response curve of a species in the fundamental niche is usually assumed to be quadratic. The centre of a quadratic ...
    • Modelling temperature-driven changes in species associations across freshwater communities 

      Perrin, Sam; van der Veen, Bert; Golding, Nick; Finstad, Anders Gravbrøt (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-10-20)
      Due to global climate change–induced shifts in species distributions, estimating changes in community composition through the use of Species Distribution Models has become a key management tool. Being able to determine how ...
    • A re-analysis of NH4+ sorption on biochar: Have expectations been too high? 

      Weldon, Simon Mark; van der Veen, Bert; Farkas, Eva; Kocatürk Schumacher, Nazli Pelin; Dieguez-Alonso, Alba; Budai, Alice Erzebet; Rasse, Daniel (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022-04-22)
      Sorption of nutrients such as NH4+ is often quoted as a critical property of biochar, explaining its value as a soil amendment and a filter material. However, published values for NH4+ sorption to biochar vary by more than ...
    • Refrigeration or anti-theft? Food-caching behavior of Wolverines (Gulo gulo) in Scandinavia 

      van der Veen, Bert; Mattisson, Jenny; Zimmermann, Barbara; Odden, John; Persson, Jens (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020-04-15)
      Food-caching animals can gain nutritional advantages by buffering seasonality in food availability, especially during times of scarcity. The wolverine (Gulo gulo) is a facultative predator that occupies environments of low ...
