​Back ground

The first Swedish bird ringing atlas was published in 1935, authored by Einar Lönnberg, the former head of the bird ringing administration at the Swedish Museum of Natural History.

Since then no major analysis of the results from Swedish bird ringing has been done until the current atlas project started in the middle of the 1980s. Planning the project and applying for fundings were the first matters to be solved and the computerizing of all recoveries back to 1911 took several years. Not until the middle of the 1990s could the analysis of the recovery data begin, and, due to financial problems, this continued until 2005.
