Marine invertebrate collection NTNU University Museum

Torkild Bakken, Karstein Hårsaker & Marc Daverdin
The marine invertebrate collections at the NTNU University Museum goes back to the activities initiated by Bishop Johan Ernst Gunnerus in the 1760's (Bakken et al. 2011). Only a handful specimens in the collection date back to this period. From around 1870 an exploration and mapping of marine environments in central Norway started, initially the Trondheimsfjord, but later also coastal areas outside the fjord. Sampling activities contributing preserved specimens have been at irregular intervals since...

Limnic freshwater pelagic invertebrates biogeographical mapping/inventory NTNU University Museum

Marc Daverdin
The freshwater pelagic invertebrates’ collection at the NTNU University Museum dates back to 1951. Its material has been mainly collected in connection with regional mapping of species and nature types as well as effects of anthropogenic impacts, e.g. hydropower regulation, rotenone treatment and metal mine contamination. Today’s collection covers the taxonomical group Anostraca, Cladocera, Notostraca, Copepoda, Malacostraca, Ploima and represents more than 130 species. The geographic coverage covers essentially mid and northern Norway; the collection...

Cadastre of invasive plant species of the Altai krai

Tatiana Terechina & Natalya Ovcharova
Cadastre of invasive plant species of the Altai Territory. The purpose of developing the database was to study the invasive activity of adventive plant species in the Altai Territory. The database facilitated the formation of a cadastre of alien species to control and prevent biological invasions by taking into account the ecological and biological features of the species. In addition, the database makes it possible to identify the patterns of formation of the adventive flora,...

Our emphasis is on geographic and life history variation of common species in Canada. Approximately 83% of the collection...

NDFF Wall Plants Monitoring Program

Laurens Sparrius
The aim of the Wall Plants Monitoring Program is to facilitate the structured counting of wall plants. First, a selection is made of line transacts with a maximum length of 300 metres. Then, growth locations of wall plants within those transacts are mapped as points on a map or indicated by house numbers. The number of specimens is counted at each point. The protocol contains a list of the species that need to be measured....
