In the absence of specimen identifiers, the Museum and its staff are often mentioned in the acknowledgements section of a paper, and we therefore also ran a literature search in Google Scholar using these search terms: "Zoological Museum," "ZMUC," "Natural History Museum of Denmark," "University of Copenhagen," "polar bear," "Ursus maritimus," and "Thalarctos maritimus." The search terms reflect the fact that the Natural History Museum of Denmark was formed in 2003, when the Zoological Museum, the Botanical Museum, the Geological Museum, and the Botanical Gardens were merged into one department at the University of Copenhagen.
