Plant ecology. Vegetation dynamics. Biological diversity. Endangered species. Vegetation monitoring. Effects of air pollution and climate change. Terrestrial liming. Environmental Impact Assessment. Conservation. Soil analysis. Cultural landscape and management. Studies on interactions between vegetation, fire and browsing/grazing of animals. Multivariate data analysis in plant communities and biogeography.
My main research focus is on population dynamics, demography and life history strategies. In this framework, I focus on the links between food limitation, climatic variation and predation.
Vegetation ecology, ecophysiology, remote sensing, vegetation mapping and monitoring, reindeer pasture monitoring, forestry, GIS, environmental impact assessments (vegetation, flora, reindeer)
• Population dynamics, demography and life history strategies with special focus on the relationship between food access, climate and reproduction for reindeer. • Theoretical biology and ecological methodology with special focus on the use of experiments, official statistics, models and monitoring. • Multidisciplinary research with special focus on biology (behavioural ecology), social science (anthropology) and quantitative methods.
The main part of my research activities is focused on biodiversity, its measurement, patterns and drivers, such as top predators and different types of human impact and climate change. The research done involves the use of large-scale and/or long-term datasets already collected in scientific surveys or environmental monitoring surveys. I have studied marine biodiversity patterns in different parts of the world in shallow waters, on the continental shelf and in the deep sea using data on benthos and fish communities. Currently I am also focusing on terrestrial biodiversity studies. The work implies a large number of collaborations with scientists from Europe, New Zealand, Canada, Russia and China. With regard to the measurement of biodiversity, I have focused on beta diversity, patterns of rare and common species and, in general, on the use of multivariate analyses.
Seabird ecology, arctic biology, ecotoxicology and ecophysiology. Moe is working with questions related to tracking of migration and distributions, energetics, stress, pollutants, life history and climate. Study species: kittiwake, common eider, arctic skua, long-tailed skua, glaucous gull, little auk, lesser black-backed gull, common guillemot, atlantic puffin, European shag, northern fulmar, herring gull, common gull, snow petrel, waders and some terrestrial bird species. Moe cooperates with many scientists from other national and international research institutes.
