Not an abstract, but an overview of this book and Fabricius: "In this important work Fabricius describes 473 animal species, 130 of which were new to science. Each species is put down with two names after the binominary nomenclature; then comes a brief diagnosis, a list of the designations given to the species by other authors (if already described), and its Greenland name. Then follows a more detailed description of the species, together with data on its occurrence in Greenland or along the coasts, its food, conditions of reproduction and living habits, and, finally, information on the Greenlanders' purpose for and methods of catching it. The descriptions of the animals are not abstracted from other authors, but composed by Fabricius himself on the basis of the Greenland material he had gathered and, as far as possible, take into account also the appearance of the living animals. It may rightly be said that the work of Otto Fabricius marks the beginning of scientific knowledge of the Greenland fauna (Ad. S. Jensen)." Fabricius was a missionary in Greenland from 1768 to 1773. "Otto Fabricius (1744- 1822) should not be confused with his contemporary and distant relative Johan Christian Fabricius (1745-1808), also a Dane, an entomologist who produced the first textbook of entomology, and also did some work on copepods.
