Newt in progress: Status for Triturus alpestris in Denmark
Following the extensive habitat management of T. alpestris carried out since 1988 in Southeast Jutland, South Denmark, there has been an impressive increase in the number of breeding habitats. From 1988 to 1997 the number has increased by more than 6 times, from 32 to 201. That is a yearly growth of 22.7%. In the future more emphasis will be put on restoring the existing breeding ponds.
