The aim of this dataset is to present a list of all known taxa native to Denmark supplemented with non-native taxa which have been established at least locally and/or periodically. Furthermore the list contains a number of taxa which are not considered Danish - casual introductions, taxonomic or geographically unresolved species, incorrectly stated taxa etc. This dataset constitutes the taxonomic backbone (Taxonbasen) of the Danish national species registration portal https://arter.dk. Taxonbasen is a continuation of Allearter (https://allearter.dk and https://allearter-databasen.dk) which has been a part of DanBIF (https://samlinger.snm.ku.dk/en/digital_collections/danbif-and-gbif/) since 2009 - with checklists being available through GBIF since 2017.

The data in this checklist resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 67,259 records.
2 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
