Vascular plants as a surrogate species group in complementary site selection for bryophytes, macrolichens, spiders, carabids, staphylinids, snails, and wood living polypore fungi in a northern forest
Vascular plants may be used in combination with an inventory of important habitats for rare and/or redlisted forest species, such as dead wood, old trees, deciduous trees, and cliffs, in practical site selection of small scale sites of conservation value. Expand
Use of Indicator Species to Assess Forest Continuity: a Critique
Conservation biologists often must apply novel approaches to address critical issues before they have been thoroughly validated by scientific studies. One technique of particular interest is the useExpand
Environmental Services Provided from Riparian Forests in the Nordic Countries
Forest buffers are effective in protecting water quality and aquatic life, and have positive effects on terrestrial biodiversity, particularly when broader than 40 m, whereas the effect on the greenhouse gas exchange is unclear. Expand
How to maximize biological diversity in nature reserve selection: Vascular plants and breeding birds in deciduous woodlands, western Norway
Three possible quantitative methods to obtain a set of reserves that includes all species of interest are presented, using plant and bird lists from 60 deciduous woods in western Norway, and compared with related broad-scale studies in Australia. Expand
Complementary Hotspot Inventory – A method for identification of important areas for biodiversity at the forest stand level
Forest stands are the basic planning units of managed forest landscapes, and the structural composition of these units is important for conservation of biodiversity. We present a methodologicalExpand
A comparative ecological study of Norwegian mountain plants in relation to possible future climatic change
Mountain plants constitute an important part of the Norwegian flora. They are also believed to be the plant group in Norway most threatened by the expected climatic warming due to an enhancedExpand
Predicting changes in Fennoscandian vascular-plant species richness as a result of future climatic change
It is anticipated that future climatic warming following the currently enhanced greenhouse effect will change the distribution limits of many vascular plant species. Using annual accumulatedExpand
Lichen colonization patterns show minor effects of dispersal distance at landscape scale
It is argued that passively dispersed species with numerous small propagules tend to exhibit patchy populations with extensive dispersal at the landscape scale, rather than behaving like classical metapopulations. Expand
The importance of traditional meadow management techniques for conservation of vascular plant species richness in Norway
Using information from a regional survey of vascular plants of 130 sites in western Norway, a selection of sites based on a heuristic iterative complementarity-based nature reserve selectionExpand
Productivity‐diversity relationships for plants, bryophytes, lichens, and polypore fungi in six northern forest landscapes
A general pattern of increasing species richness with site productivity is found, on average total species richness doubled with a ten-fold increase in productivity, and the effect of increasing plot (grain) size on PDRs was investigated. Expand
