Conservation ecology

Erik Framstad

Main scientific experience covers population and habitat ecology of small mammals in boreal forests and mountain ecosystems. Applied research and consultancy work includes studies and assessments of boreal forest ecology, protected areas, ecological effects of agriculture and forestry on species and ecosystems, environmental impact assessments of infrastructure development projects, development of indicators for biodiversity, and monitoring of terrestrial biodiversity.

Main administrative experience covers management of NINA's research department in Oslo, as well as coordination of terrestrial ecological monitoring and major research projects and programmes on boreal forests or cultural landscapes.

Jon Hamner Magerøy

I have extensive experience with research on and monitoring of freshwater mussels in Norway, Canada and the USA. As a part of this work I have also worked with confirmed and potential host fish for these mussels. Therefore, I have gained experience with a variety of freshwater fish, both through experiments and field work. In additiont to working on parasite-host interactions between mussel larvae and fish, I have also worked on evolutionary theories on parasites that castrate their hosts. Specifically, I worked on a bacterium that castrates water fleas (daphnia).
