Summary

Full Title

Bioblitz 2013 Copenhagen Denmark

Description

Bioblitz 2013 - A snapshot of the biodiversity of the city. Bioblitz 2013 was a public “hunt” for species in a specific area – the “Østre Anlæg” public park in the centre of Copenhagen, Denmark. It took place on May 17, 2013 and the aim was to see how many different species could be found in the course of a single day at a single site. Children, adults, students and museum researchers worked together to map the diversity of species in the selected locality. Plants, fungi and animals - all the life they could possibly find. All collected species were identified with qualified help from the Natural History Museum of Denmark's researchers and associated experts, and were recorded in a designated registration system, so that the results could be saved for the future. The recording system was developed in collaboration with DanBIF (www.DanBIF.dk) and project www.allearter.dk. Within one day, a total of 734 recordings were made and 342 species were identified.
