Dataset based on nationwide atlas survey in 10x10 km grid cells, of the 88 mammal species occurring in Denmark
. Results and maps from the Atlas survey originally were published in 2007 as a book work by Gyldendal, in collaboration with the natural History Museum in Aarhus and the Zoological Museum (Natural History Museum of Denmark
The book was edited by lic.scient Hans J. Baagøe (Natural History Museum of Denmark
) and lic.scient Thomas Secher Jensen (Natural history Museum Aarhus) with contributions from more than 20 scientific writers. More than 4000 volunteers contributed to the survey with recordings of mammals from all over Denmark
and surrounding seas.
The atlas project and book received generous funding from the Aage V. Jensens Foundations. The current dataset was created through thorough quality control and normalisation of data in the database originally created for the survey. This latest work was made possible through the generous funding from the Aage V. Jensen Nature Foundation.
Formation period: 2000-2003, but for some species supplemented with data from 1973-current
