About this book

Language: Danish

Please note: despite our and the publisher's best efforts, in many cases the weight of these books has proven too much for the provided slipcase during transit from Denmark. We regrettably can therefore not guarantee the slipcase will be received in perfect condition.

In 1992 one of the most ambitious projects in botany in recent times was started: the Atlas Flora Danica. Members of the Dansk Botanisk Forening, the Danish Botanical Society, divided the country into 1,300 squares, each measuring 5 × 5 km, spread across the country, and began to study the flora.

Square for square, from year to year and region to region, professional and amateur botanists, organized by the Dansk Botanisk Forening, have registered habitats for wild plants in all regions of the country. Almost 1 million data points spread over approximately 3,000 plant species were collected. They form the basis for the 2125 distribution maps presented in the book, which – 23 years after the start of this project – is now finally finished.

For all species and subspecies found the book outlines when and how they arrived in the country, which habitats they prefer, and where in the country they are found. The data also gives an idea of ​​whether they have become rarer or more common. The many informative background chapters provide an understanding of why plants grow where they do. This ensures will get the most out of studying the distribution maps and ensure finding, observing and exploring these plants in the wild will be a great pleasure.

Summary in Danish:
I 1992 gik startskuddet på et af de mest ambitiøse projekter inden for botanikken i nyere tid: Atlas Flora Danica. Medlemmer af Dansk Botanisk Forening inddelte landet i 1.300 kvadrater på hver 5 × 5 kilometer fordelt i hele landet og gik i gang med at undersøge floraen.

Kvadrat for kvadrat, år for år og egn for egn har fritidsbotanikere, professionelle såvel som amatører, organiseret under Dansk Botanisk Forening registreret voksesteder for vilde planter i alle egne af landet. Det er blevet til næsten 1 million fundoplysninger fordelt på cirka 3.000 plantearter. De udgør grundlaget for de 2.125 udbredelseskort, der præsenteres i bogen, som nu – 23 år efter opstarten – endelig er færdig.

For alle fundne arter og underarter gøres kort rede for, hvornår og hvordan de er kommet til landet, hvilke voksesteder de foretrækker, og hvor i landet de er fundet. Der gives også et bud på, om de er blevet sjældnere eller mere almindelige. De mange informative baggrundskapitler giver forståelse for, hvorfor planterne vokser, hvor de gør. Derved får man optimalt udbytte af at studere udbredelseskortene og opnår en større glæde ved at finde, iagttage og udforske planterne i naturen.
