How to use this project

Observations added to this project must be linked in the observation fields such that photos of the arthropod visitor are paired with a photos of the visited flower, ideally using duplicates of the same photos. For example, if I photographed Bombus impatiens visiting Helianthus tuberosus, I would take the following steps:

1. Upload the photo(s)
2. Identify the observation as B. impatiens
3. Duplicate the observation
4. Identify the duplicate observation as H. tuberosus
5. In the Observation Fields section, add the "linked observation" field; paste in the URL of the H. tuberosus observation into the linked observation field of the B. impatiens observations, and paste the URL of the B. impatiens observation into that of the H. tuberosus observation.
6. Add each observation to our project, Arthropod-Flower Associations
