Danish zoologist who was for several years employed at the Zoological Museum of Indonesia at Bogor. Later Chief Display Division of the National Museum of Canada at Ottawa. At present Director of the Zoo at Copenhagen.



Collections of botanical material made during his employment in Indonesia were made in co-operation with Dr Kostermans and with staff instructed by him at P. Dua, and Udjong Kulon, SW. Java. Files, data etc. according to Mr Dyhrberg have been kept by Kostermans. D.ís specimens scrappy and mostly thrown away. 2500 plants from Sumatra (Kostermans never collected there) were presented to Copenhagen [C] in 1961; I have no information on the state of the collection.
