      Boström, Christoffer; Baden, Susanne; Bockelmann, Anna-Christina; Dromph, Karsten; Fredriksen, Stein; Gustafsson, Camilla; Krause-Jensen, Dorte; Möller, Tiia; Nielsen, Søren Laurentius; Olesen, Birgit; Olsen, Jeanine; Pihl, Leif; Rinde, Eli (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      1. This paper focuses on the marine foundation eelgrass species, Zostera marina, along a gradient from the northern Baltic Sea to the north-east Atlantic. This vast region supports a minimum of 1480km 2 eelgrass (maximum ...

      Duarte, Carlos M.; Gattuso, Jean-Pierre; Hancke, Kasper; Gundersen, Hege; Filbee-Dexter, Karen; Pedersen, Morten Foldager; Middelburg, J.J.; Burrows, Michael T.; Krumhansl, Kira A.; Wernberg, Thomas; Moore, Pippa J.; Pessarrodona, Albert; Ørberg, Sarah; Pinto, Isabel Sousa; Assis, Jorge; Queirós, Ana M.; Smale, Dan A; Bekkby, Trine; Serrão, Ester A.; Krause-Jensen, Dorte (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      Macroalgal habitats are believed to be the most extensive and productive of all coastal vegetated ecosystems. In stark contrast to the growing attention on their contribution to carbon export and sequestration, understanding ...
    • Kelp forest distribution in the Nordic region 

      Kvile, Kristina Øie; Andersen, Guri Sogn; Baden, Susanne; Bekkby, Trine; Bruhn, Annette; Geertz-Hansen, Ole; Hancke, Kasper; Hansen, Jørgen L.S.; Krause-Jensen, Dorte; Rinde, Eli; Steen, Henning; Wegeberg, Susse; Gundersen, Hege (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      Kelp forests are productive coastal ecosystems that provide a range of ecosystem services. Mapping the distribution and area occupied by kelp forests is a critical step to identify their ecosystem functions and services, ...
    • Nordic Blue Carbon Ecosystems: Status and Outlook 

      Krause-Jensen, Dorte; Gundersen, Hege; Björk, Mats; Gullström, Martin; Dahl, Martin; Asplund, Maria E.; Boström, Christoffer; Holmer, Marianne; Banta, Gary T.; Graversen, Anna Elizabeth Løvgren; Pedersen, Morten Foldager; Bekkby, Trine; Frigstad, Helene; Skjellum, Solrun Figenschau; Thormar, Jonas; Gyldenkærne, Steen; Howard, Jennifer; Pidgeon, Emily; Ragnarsdóttir, Sunna Björk; Mols-Mortensen, Agnes; Hancke, Kasper (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      Vegetated coastal and marine habitats in the Nordic region include salt marshes, eelgrass meadows and, in particular, brown macroalgae (kelp forests and rockweed beds). Such habitats contribute to storage of organic carbon ...
