How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Previous risk assessments have concluded that adolescent's caffeine exposure from energy drinks (ED) are of limited concern. Recent surveys have, however, shown substantial increase in consumption. This cross-sectional survey conducted in 2020 estimated caffeine exposure from beverages among ∼80% of all 13-15-year-old adolescents (n = 10358) relati...

Horses in Iceland have been isolated for more than 1,000 yr but still harbor a similar range of gastrointestinal parasites as do horses across the world. The long isolation of the horses and their parasites presumably means that no resistance genes have been introduced into the Parascaris spp. population. It is therefore of particular interest to i...
Faecal samples were collected from a total of 11 calves on three dairy farms (four from two farms and three from one) where calves generally thrive well and no anti-coccidial treatment is habitually carried out. One of the farms keeps calves in groups on hay/straw bedding, one keeps calves in pairs on plastic slats and then in groups on concrete sl...
During late gestation in the mare, rapid fetal growth is accompanied by considerable placental growth and further invasion of the endometrium by microvilli. This growth requires extensive remodeling of the extracellular matrix (ECM). In early pregnancy, we know that matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 and -2 are involved in the endometrial invasion du...

Age-related degeneration of the equine endometrium is an established and important cause of fertility problems in thoroughbred mares, causing great loss to the industry. As a part of the age-related endometrial degeneration complex, an excessive deposition of collagen leading to endometrial fibrosis is particularly important due to the limitations...

Chronic degenerative changes to the endometrium include endometrial fibrosis, involving a deposition of fibrous tissue in the endometrial stroma and around the endometrial glands. In this study it is hypothesised that endometrial fibrosis is a result of extracellular matrix (ECM) remodelling following endometritis involving MMP-9 and -2 and the tis...

In Iceland, a large proportion of gimmers (female lambs in their first year) are bred. However, many of them do not produce any lambs in the lambing season, seemingly because they lose the pregnancy at the fetal stage. The project aims to determine the rate of pregnancy loss and to determine the timing of these losses in problem herds.
To build up a reference and teaching collection for zooarchaeological analysis with a focus on Icelandic livestock breeds, wild mammals, birds and fish.
