How the house sparrow came to be
10. aug. 2018
How is it that the small, charismatic house sparrow has become so closely associated with us? CEES researchers have been trying to answer this question by sequencing the DNA of populations of sparrows from across Europe and the Middle East.

The role of climate and size in the spawning distribution of cod
4. des. 2018
Where the fish are spawning is of tremendous importance for the population ( see our post) but also for the industry relying on it, especially since harvesting is often concentrated on fish that aggregate for to spawn. Climate change and harvesting are known to strongly affect the fish population with effect on the spawning location. In a recent paper (Langangen et al. Global Change Biology ) we explore the question: “who is the culprit of spawning location change: Climate or fishing?”
