    In northern Fennoscandia, the spatial and temporal grazing practices of semi-domesticated reindeer ( Rangifer tarandus tarandus) vary, which implies different grazing effects dependent on natural conditions as well as management regime (i.e., timing and intensity of grazing). We compared density...

    Two birch species coexist in Iceland, dwarf birch Betula nana and tree birch B. pubescens. Both species are variablemorphologically, which has been shown to be due to introgressive hybridization via interspecific hybrids. The aim of this study was to examine if the introgression could be related...
