This thesis aims to expand the habitat of the hazel dormouse by detecting the signature of its local environment in prospective, far away locations by means of the automatised process of data.
The hazel dormouse is an endangered species (nowadays rare in Denmark), and still in apparent decline. In the face of extinction, this research seeks to expand the known suitable territory for the species. It understands the man-made degradation of the environment as unconscious and as negation but, chiefly, as a temporary condition.
If previous conservationist efforts have imagined a viable habitat as a physical structure that positively interconnects populations, this work attempts to conceive viable habitat as an enclave, as well as something other than purely spatial. Thus, habitat is defined here by a stable variation over time of land use, of climatic phenomena, of intensities of use . . . as a continued, favourable relationship.
