    Action Plan for the Conservation of the Faroese Horse2024Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Horses were brought to the Faroe Islands by Norse settlers in the 9th and 10th centuries. Over the centuries, the geographical remoteness in the North Atlantic Ocean forced these horses to adapt to their surroundings. Only the horses that could withstand the weather survived, and the Faroe Islands became home to a horse breed that was small, strong, hardy, and agile. The small horses were used by farmers for agricultural purposes and occasionally for transport between villages. Most of them roamed the mountains all year and no targeted breeding took place. The oldest record available of horses on the Faroe Islands is from 1857, which counted 844 horses with 396 mares, and 476 foals and stallions.

    Exportation of the horses to coal mines in Britain combined with modernization of the agriculture on the Faroe Islands, resulted in a breed that nearly went extinct. By the 1960s, there were less than ten horses of the breed left alive. A rescue operation was initiated, and suitable horses for breeding were used, however many of them were already related. All Faroese horses alive today, are descendants of only four individual horses.

    In 1978, the Faroese Horse Association (Felagið Føroysk Ross) was established to conserve the Faroese indigenous horse breed and they have kept a studbook ever since. In 2018, the online pedigree registration system Føroya Fongur was created, in which online access is provided to the studbook with extensive information about the Faroese horse breed.

    By the end of 2023 there were 82 living Faroese horses. The breed can thank their survival to the hard work and dedication from individual horse owners and enthusiast through the years, and through the work of the Faroese Horse Association. You could say that the conservation of the Faroese horse this far is a success story as the breed has managed to survive and increase in numbers over the years. However, there are still several big challenges and threats facing this small and hardy breed. There is a critical need to act today to secure that the breed will be around for future generations as well. The Faroese horse is, after all, a living and breathing part of the Faroese cultural heritage.

    All Nordic countries, including the Faroe Islands, have adopted The Global Plan of Action for Animal Genetic Resources (GPA) established by FAO in 2007. This framework obligates all parties to contribute to the conservation, sustainable use and development of animal genetic resources. One of the main areas of concern expressed in the GPA, is that there is too little research and information about many of the native farm animal breeds. Increased characterization, involving phenotypic, genetic, and historical information on breeds is needed (FAO, 2007).

    The purpose of the Action Plan for the Conservation of the Faroese Horse is to highlight concrete actions and measures that need be implemented to conserve the horse breed for the future.

    Status and Conservation of the Nordic Brown Bee: Final report2014Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Apis mellifera mellifera, the Nordic brown bee, was the first honeybee subspecies to colonize the Northern European region and honey has been collected and consumed in this region for about 8000 years. In 2011, the Nordic Genetic Resource Center (NordGen) established an ad hoc working group to clarify the current status of the Nordic brown bee in the Nordic and Baltic countries,to summarize the current in situ and ex situ conservation of A. m. mellifera and to provide suggestions for future research activities and initiatives. A main result of this work was that the Nordic brown bee suffers from a bad reputation within the beekeeping community. Additionally, due to their sex determination mechanism, small populations of these haplodiploidbees are at a higher risk of extinction than comparable diploid populations. Future conservation and sustainable use of A. m. mellifera calls for comprehensive phenotypicand genetic characterisation, and if possible, performance testing and selective breeding forgenetic improvement. Additionally, more effort should be put into the development and read option of management techniques suitable for A. m. mellifera, especially those concerning queen rearing. Efficient in situ conservation work should be combined with research activities,education and practical beekeeping.The in situ conservation work of A. m. mellifera in Nordic and Baltic countries has been carried out by public organizations and private people. Enhancement of conservation and expansion of the existing populations should include international cooperation, first and foremost coordinated exchange of genetic material. Financing of the conservation efforts ought to bediversified to include funding from national and/or international research grants, governmentalagencies and private businesses. However the most essential component is coordination of the national and international resources, and cooperation between actors. Based on the results of this project, we propose the establishment of a Nordic-Baltic network for in situ conservation of A.m. mellifera.

    Seed Longevity and Survival of Seed Borne Diseases After 35 Years Conservation in Permafrost: – Report From the 100 Year Storage Experiment2024Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Nordic Gene Bank (predecessor to today's plant section of The Nordic Genetic Resource Center, NordGen) established the 100 year seed storage experiment in Coal mine no. 3 outside Longyearbyen, Svalbard, in 1986. The experiment was established with the aim to monitor the longevity of seeds in this Nordic back-up seed collection that were deposited in the coal mine from 1984 and to gain general knowledge about the longevity of seed stored under permafrost conditions, as well as studying the survival of seed borne plant pathogens.

    Seed samples have regularly been withdrawn for analysis according to a fixed withdrawal and analyze plan, that will continue until the last samples are analyzed in 2086.

    Kulturarv og økosystemtjenester: Sammenhenger, muligheter og begrensninger2015Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [no]

    De siste årene har økosystemtjenester kommet inn som et nytt og viktig begrep i miljøarbeidet. I denne rapporten oppsummeres prosjektet "Kulturarv som økosystemtjeneste. En mulighetsstudie", hvor sammenhenger, muligheter og begrensinger i grensesnittet økosystemtjenester og kulturarv diskuteres. Rapporten sammenstiller kulturminneforvaltningens verdikategoriseringssystemer med økosystemtjenestetilnærmingens begrep "kulturelle tjenester". En diskusjon av kvalitativ, kvantitativ og monetær verdsetting leder til erkjennelsen at verdisetting av kulturarv og økosystemtjenester ikke kan erstatte hverandre, men supplere hverandre. Samtidig understrekes nødvendigheten av å tenke helhetlig i natur- og kulturminneforvaltningen. Kulturhistorisk og økologisk forståelse vil sammen kunne styrke en bærekraftig forvaltning av landskapet.
