Svein-Håkon Lorentsen

  • Økolog med hovedvekt på studier av sjøfugl og sel i marine og polare miljøer.
  • Hovedfokus på studier av populasjonsbiologi, demografi og reproduksjonsbiologi, diett, næringsøksøkologi, atferd og migrasjoner vha. dataloggere (GPS, GLS, TDR og satelittelemetri)
  • Erfaring fra feltarbeid under til dels krevende forhold (Antarktis, norskekysten til forskjellige årstider).
  • Miljøutredninger, konsekvensanalyser bl.a. relatert til sjøfugl og offshore petroleumsvirksomhet, effekter av taretråling, forstyrrelse på sjøfugl og høsting
  • Faglig veileder for en rekke hovedfagsstudenter og sensor ved universitet.
  • Administrativ leder for Det nasjonale overvåkingsprogrammet for sjøfugl
  • Administrativ erfaring både i forbindelse med ledelse av prosjekter og som NK for avdeling for terrestrisk økoogi i NINA gjennom to år.
  • Stor erfaring i oppbygging av databaser

Kjell Einar Erikstad

My main research activity has been in population ecology, lifehistory adaptions and genetical structures of populations. Research has focused on ecological theory and includes a variety of animals (especially birds) both in terrestrial and marine environment. Most studies have been carried out in arctic and subarctic areas and I have also been involved in population studies on birds in the Antarctic. During recent years I have also studied the relationships between organochlorine contaminations and its effect on life history traits in Glaucous Gulls in the arctic.

Jan Ove Bustnes

Practical experience covers studies in population studies of waterfowl and seabirds. Involvement in seabird research programmes (monitoring colonies and studies on seabirds at sea), and impact assessment in connection with seabird and oil drilling. I also have some experience in entomological research (ecology and systematics). Ecotoxicology been a central working field in the recent years.

  • Population biologists with expertise in seabird ecology, including
  • Time-series studies of demography, feeding ecology, trophic interactions and other climate-related responses of seabirds since 1981.
  • National mapping and monitoring of seabird distribution and population trends.
  • Studies of seabird movements (using satellite transmitters and loggers), morphometry and population origin.
  • Environmental impact assessments and vulnerability modelling, e.g. related to seabirds and offshore oil exploration.
  • Well experienced with respect to electronic data processing and statistical analyses.
  • Scientific supervisor for a number of MSc students and some experience as a university lecturer and examiner.

Arne Follestad

Population ecology, behavioural ecology, monitoring (time-series), coastal ecology. Geese, seabirds. Environmental impact analysis. During recent years, major assignments have included ecological studies on population dyna-mics and management actions (hunting regimes, agricultural conflicts between farmers and geese) related to the Greylag Geese and other geese, and environmental effects of large wind-mill farms planned along the Norwegian coast. Major experience also covers seabird studies connected to their breeding biology, mapping of seabird distribution inshore and at open sea, by-catch of seabirds in fish nets, consumption of discards from fisheries (EU-project), environ-mental impact analysis of offshore petroleum activities, and oil spill contingency planning.
