Ann Kristin Schartau

Major practical experiences cover project management concerning research and monitoring in freshwater (rivers and lakes) and in marine environments (estuarine and coastal waters). Specialization on freshwater biodiversity and water quality. Project leader for several national projects on implementation of the EC Water Framework Directive in Norway: Design of a National Monitoring Network for Reference Sites, Design of a National Network for Surveillance monitoring in freshwaters, Evaluation of methods for monitoring and assessment of freshwaters c.f. the WFD. Experience from international work on standardization of biological methods, and different aspects related to the implementation of the ECC’s Water Framework Directive.

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.

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.
