Danish arachnologist hunting down every single species of Danish spider.
I have a masters degree in biology from The University of Copenhagen. My master thesis was on crab spiders' sensory biology with a special emphasis on their vision.
North European crab spiders and their habitus is also my strong suit.
I now work as a biodiversity consultant, in my own company with a special focus on spider diversity assesments.
