taxonomy of the bean goose-pink-footed goose.the bean goose anser fabalis and the pink-footed goose a. brachyrhynchus breed in the tundra and taiga zones of eurasia and eastern greenland, and the taxonomy of the group based on morphology has been controversial. we investigated the phylogenetic relationships within the bean goose-the pink-footed goose complex using mitochondrial control region sequences of 199 individuals collected from the breeding areas in the palaearctic and eastern nearctic. we found three mitochondrial clades geographi ...200818550388
goose management schemes to resolve conflicts with agriculture: theory, practice and 2012, the four countries hosting the svalbard population of pink-footed goose anser brachyrhynchus along its flyway launched an international species management plan for the population. one of the aims was to reduce conflicts between geese and agriculture to an acceptable level. since 2006, norway has offered subsidies to farmers that provide refuge areas for geese on their land. we evaluate the mid-norwegian goose management subsidy scheme, with a view to its adjustment to prevailing ecologi ...201728215015
implementation of the first adaptive management plan for a european migratory waterbird population: the case of the svalbard pink-footed goose anser international species management plan for the svalbard population of the pink-footed goose was adopted under the agreement on the conservation of african-eurasian migratory waterbirds in 2012, the first case of adaptive management of a migratory waterbird population in europe. an international working group (including statutory agencies, ngo representatives and experts) agreed on objectives and actions to maintain the population in favourable conservation status, while accounting for biodiver ...201728215011
could have gone wrong: effects of abrupt changes in migratory behaviour on harvest in a waterbird sustainably exploit a population, it is crucial to understand and reduce uncertainties about population processes and effects of harvest. in migratory species, management is challenged by geographically separated changing environmental conditions, which may cause unexpected changes in species distribution and harvest. we describe the development in the harvest of svalbard-breeding pink-footed geese (anser brachyrhynchus) in relation to the observed trajectory and migratory behaviour of the po ...201526247849
