The 2022 Project 'Species' Criteria

It is now 2022 and collection projects do exist but iNat does not include area definitions for oceans and seas nor is there a way to filter for marine taxa. For programmers this is likely not an issue as it is possible to write scripts to map the iNat taxonIDs to WoRMS AphiaIDs and come up with a list of marine species…this is getting a bit technical!

For the current year everyone is encouraged to get out and explore coastal areas, oceans and seas. If you don’t have an opportunit...

A bit of history…

Many Canadians were first introduced to iNaturalist in 2017 as part of the Canada150 celebrations. iNat was the tool/platform chosen to hold all the observations collected during the bioblitzes held across the country as part of celebrations/events to mark Canada’s 150th birthday.

In 2018 it seemed logical to set up a global iNat project for Oceans Week. At that time ‘collection’ projects had not...

The Australian bustard: exactly whose icon?

(writing in progress)

Until recently, the Australian bustard was regarded as the same species as the kori bustard (Ardeotis kori) of Africa. This classification was always questionable, but it is only recently that we have become familiar enough with either type of bird to notice important differences.

The most recent approach is that the Australian bustard deserves to be called a species (Ardeotis australis) unique to Australia and New Guinea, in line with the generally ...

Great Southern Bioblitz 2022

Still a few months out - please add 28-31 October 2022 to your diaries.
All observations recorded in Lake Macquarie LGA during the time frame will be included in the Lake Mac City project.
It would be fantastic to have more people involved ..... so your challenge , if you choose to do so, is to encourage others to start getting involved in iNaturalist in the lead up. :)
It is always exciting to see what everyone has seen whether it is over a few hours or a couple of days.

Journal 3

With 12 Citizen Science Entomologists in our group we set out on the circuit track at Mount Tibrogargan, Glasshouse Mountains on the 25/5/22. The weather was cloudy and we were lucky to have just missed the rain. Our aim was to collect insects and record our findings. Our equipment included specimen jars, a beat sheet, magnifying glasses, hand lenses, ultra violet torch and sticks for turning over rotting logs and leaf litter.
Walking slowly along the circuit track we began to 'tune...

Pacific Digger Bees

I'm the first to admit Identifying Honeybees is difficult for me because of the diversity in outward appearance. Bumblebees are worse still and the publicly available documents are not very helpful.

Solitary bees seem to be as different in appearance as people. It is making me nuts.

Search iNaturalist for any of the solitary bees lets say Pacific Digger Bee Anthophora pacifica and you get so many different looking bees I want to pull my hair out and I don't have that muc...

Notes: Bird migration by Stan Tekiela

Prologue

  • Most everything is tied to driving forces of the need to feed and the need to breed
  • 4000 species of birds migrate (of 11k total species)
  • Largest concentration of birds occurs in the tropics around equatorial belt

Neotropical migration
Spring: Birds from central/south america tropics migrate to Northern America for breeding
Fall: Birds leave to their original places to escape north america wi...

We’ve passed 100,000,000 verifiable observations on iNaturalist!

If you made 1,000 observations a day, every day, it would take you 274 years to generate 100 million observations. This milestone shows what people can do by working together. The iNaturalist dataset is something we’ve all made together, but it’s larger than any one of us. We hope everyone is as proud of this accomplishment as we are. Together, the iNaturalist community has created a unique window into life on Earth and hundreds of thousands of species with whom we share the planet. Tha...
