      Nystuen, Kristin Odden; Sundsdal, Kristine; Opedal, Øystein Hjorthol; Holien, Håkon; Strimbeck, Richard; Graae, Bente Jessen (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Questions How do mat thickness, physical structure and allelopathic properties of terricolous mat‐forming lichens affect recruitment of vascular plants in dwarf‐shrub and lichen heath vegetation? Location The mountains of ...
    • Rodent population dynamics affect seedling recruitment in alpine habitats 

      Nystuen, Kristin O.; Evju, Marianne; Rusch, Graciela M.; Graae, Bente Jessen; Eide, Nina Elisabeth (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Questions: How do rodents with cyclic population dynamics affect seedling recruitment in alpine habitats? Does disturbance fromrodents have larger implications on seedling recruitment in some plant communities than in ...
