Kinorhyncha - a poorly known and neglected animal phylum.
Mapping the mud dragons of Norway.
The project had 5 major objectives:
To collect intertidal (and to some extent deep-sea) sediment samples
To undertake morphological species determination, and identification of the species likely to be new to Norway and/or science
To characterize molecularly the Kinorhyncha species detected in Norwegian waters;
To provide state-of-the-art descriptions of newly discovered species;
To establish a c…
Data from 637 samples (event data) of marine benthic invertebrates in the Oslofjord collected during the years 1951-1955. The sampling was organised from the Biological Station in Drøbak, University of Oslo. The sampling was carried out by Marit E. Christiansen and Bengt O. Christiansen.
Data from a total of 178 samples (event data) of marine benthic invertebrates from two sampling project periods:
27 samples from coastal areas near Arendal and deeper parts of Skagerrak collected in June 2006 with research vessel R/V “G.M. Dannevig”. The sampling was organised by Christoffer Schander, University of Bergen.
151 samples from deep areas of Skagerrak collected in May 2009 with research vessel R/V “Håkon Mosby”. The sampling was organised by Christoffer Schander, University of Berg…
Data from 280 samples (event data) of marine benthic invertebrates collected during annual summer period cruises 1950-1953 with research vessel R/V “G.M. Dannevig”. The sampling was organised by the Natural History Museum in Oslo. Covered Norwegian coastal areas from the mouth of the Oslofjord to Kvitsøy on the west coast.
Occurrence data of marine benthic polychaetes from the Dannevig- and Drobak-collections which were carried out 1950-1955 and covered the Oslofjord and south Norwegian coastal areas: registered and catalogued specimens in the NHMO invertebrate collections.
Data from a total of 50 samples (event data) of marine benthic invertebrates from three sampling project periods:
22 sampling localities in coastal waters from Grimstad to Sandefjord on the south coast of Norway collected in May 2011 with research vessel R/V “Sea Master”.
10 samples from the Oslofjord collected in October 2011 with research vessel R/V “Trygve Braarud”.
18 samples from the Oslofjord near Drøbak collected in October 2014 with research vessel R/V “Bjørn Føyn”.
The avian collection at the Natural History Museum in Oslo, Norway is maintained and curated as four separate sub-collections, viz. the Preserved specimen, Eggshell, Sperm and DNA bank collections. In the collections database the sub-collections are, however, integrated and a single accession can contain items from one or more of the sub-collections. The Preserved specimen and Eggshell collections are traditional collections, dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries, respectively, while the DN…
"This dataset describes a long time serie for monitoring of radioactive radiocaesium isotope (Cs-137) concentration in the brown trout (Salmo trutta) population in a mountain lake (Øvre Heimdalsvatn) situated on the tree line in the eastern edge of the Jotunheimen Mountains. Ecosystem studies at Øvre Heimdalsvatn started in 1957, while this time series for radioecological monitoring started after the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident in 1986. The aim of this study was to document the long-t…
This dataset includes specimens originating from India in the collections at the Natural History Museum at the University of Oslo (NHM-UiO).
Animals: The mammal collection includes 108 specimens (mounted animals, skulls or skins, sometimes from the same individuals) from ‘India’. Insofar these are dated at all, they originate from the 19th century. No further collecting information is preserved. These data are already available from the GBIF portal (and not included in this dataset).…
This dataset includes specimens originating from India in the vascular plant herbarium, the Natural History Museum at the University of Oslo (NHM-UiO).
Introduction: As the country of India has banned the export of plant specimens, specimens collected in India prior to the ban are of high value for the research community. This report is from a survey of the herbarium sheets in the vascular plant herbarium of Oslo which ended in an inventory of plants from India present in the …
This dataset includes specimens originating from India in the natural history collections at the University Museum of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
Animals: The zoological collection includes 1 cnidarian, 122 molluscs (mostly marine), 24 birds, 4 mammals and three reptiles. These are all old specimens, presumably from the end of the 19th century or the first half of the 20th century, without collecting date. In addition, the collecting site is poor…
