• A Migratory Northern Ungulate in the Pursuit of Spring: Jumping or Surfing the Green Wave? 

      Bischof, Richard; Loe, Leif Egil; Meisingset, Erling L.; Zimmermann, Barbara; Van Moorter, Bram; Mysterud, Atle (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      The forage-maturation hypothesis (FMH) states that herbivores migrate along a phenological gradient of plant development in order to maximize energy intake. Despite strong support for the FMH, the actual relationship ...
    • Culling calves 

      Milner, Jos M.; Mysterud, Atle (Journal article, 2010)
      The shooting of calves or fawns can be a controversial matter. While in some countries the consensus among deer managers for the culling of calves is clear, it is often less clear exactly why. Jos Milner & Atle Mysterud ...
    • Factors affecting deer ked (Lipoptena cervi) prevalence and infestation intensity in moose (Alces alces) in Norway 

      Madslien, Knut; Ytrehus, Bjørnar; Viljugrein, Hildegunn; Solberg, Erling Johan; Bråten, Kent Rudi; Mysterud, Atle (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Background: The deer ked (Lipoptena cervi), a hematophagous ectoparasite of Cervids, is currently spreading in Scandinavia. In Norway, keds are now invading the south-eastern part of the country and the abundant and ...

    • Hunting Bambi : evaluating the basis for selective harvesting of juveniles 

      Milner, Jos M.; Bonefant, Christophe; Mysterud, Atle (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      Human harvesting is often a major mortality factor and, hence, an important proximate factor driving the population dynamics of large mammals. Several selective harvesting regimes focus on removing animals with low ...
    • Improving broad scale forage mapping and habitat selection analyses with airborne laser scanning: the case of moose 

      Lone, Karen; van Beest, Floris M.; Mysterud, Atle; Gobakken, Terje; Milner, Jos M.; Ruud, Hans-Petter; Loe, Leif Egil (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Determining the spatial distribution of large herbivores is a key challenge in ecology and management. However, our ability to accurately predict this is often hampered by inadequate data on available forage and structural ...
