2022 Wrap up

Again, many thanks to all who participated in this year's TradMaD Bioblitz.

Here are our final results:

  • 14 observers recorded 674 observations.
  • 262 of those observations made it to Research Grade (i.e., were verified by at least two Identifiers in the iNat community).
  • 117 species have been identified to the level of Research Grade.
  • We had the support of 96 Identifiers in the iNat Community.

auto-tag your observations by joining the Oregon iMap Collector project

Hi folks!
If you'd like your relevant invasive species sightings to automatically display the Oregon iMapInvasives project flag, please join the Oregon iMapInvasives Collector project - https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/oregon-imapinvasives-collector.

The two projects serve the same purpose - to highlight species that are invasive in Oregon, non-native but potentially invasive,...

Black Witch Moth

I'm just not fast enough with my phone camera!! I have now seen a black witch moth at Whitewater Preserve 3 times!!!! They are huge, amazing creatures. They seem to flutter around kind of willy-nilly. The very first time was during docent training under the shade structure. I seriously thought it was a bat. But it eventually landed in the eaves of an outbuilding and we could see it was a moth. The last time was just the other day (10/1/22). I was inside the ranger station helping wi...

Added more species

Hi iNaturalists,

If you received an email about this project being changed, it is because I added several species to keep this list more in synch with our Oregon Jurisdiction list on iMapInvasives.natureserve.org.

iNaturalist records are an important source for invasive species records for iMapInvasives. The platform now has a separate iNaturalist snapshot layer showing the most recent 5-years of iNat sightings, and records from this snapshot can be incorporated into ema...

Свято место пусто не бывает: Синёво

Нашим новым объектом интереса становится посёлок Синёво Ларионовского сельского поселения Приозерского района. До 1948 года посёлок был известен под финским названием Näpinlahti.
До Синёво легко добраться по автомобильной дороге от Приозёрска (8 км), на территории посёлка имеется и железнодорожная станция под одноимённым названием.
Синёво расположено на берегу Вуоксы, через него также протекает небольшая речка Луговая.

Why it is vitally important to conserve both live and fallen/snag culturally modified trees (and include a protective buffer)

Here is what I have discovered now that I notice, and/or follow culturally modified trees and then use the publicly available LIDAR maps to check if there is any subsurface engineered landscape (Note that I do no excavation so rely on tree falls, road cuts and erosion to determine subsurface geology).

  1. Flat foundation mounds - dwelling nature unknown but road cuts show most of these mounds consist of siltstone boulders and quartz chunks and pebbling. There are usually dozens o...

Heritage Weekend 2020: Nature is heritage priority ONE

On the 24 to 25 September, a voluntary group of 16 (Sat) and 9 (Sun) called together by myself, all the way from Agulhas, Bredasdorp, Greyton and Muizenberg, supported by the Swellendam Hackers Team, did a botanizing recce of Hessequaskloof Farm (farm 660 of the Klipfontein mountain, destined for Manganese Mining) to count how much biodiversity we could record.

This was bundubashing at its best, climbing over rocky crops (where some lovely species were found such as the Holotrix,...

iNaturalist Walk 1

Today I went on a walk near the Pine Tree Reserves on my walk back to the Reservoir Apartments after class. It was a very nice day out with the sun shining and a cool dry 67ºF. There was minimal wind and many people were walking around and biking around the reservoir. The 5 wild life observations I made for this day was a Eastern Gray Squirrel, Canada Goose, a Common Eastern Bumble Bee, Dandelions, and the Woolly Hedgenettle. I saw the bee, the dandelions, and the Woolly Hedgenettle in t...

Project Update - September 2022

We don’t have any new project followers! If you know of anyone that may be interested, please direct them to our page!

September marks the end of summer, and the start of fall. The amount of insects we see starts to decrease, while we see more of the fall migrants passing through.

The project increased from 6141 to 6369 observations (+228), 1551 to 1587 species (+36), and 151 to 152 observers (+2).

Our number of Research Grade observations increased from 3801 to 3...

Golden Moles

The Golden Moles (Chrysochloridae) comprise 21 species in 10 genera and 2 subfamilies. Some 18 species are endemic to southern Africa (with Chrysochloris stuhlmanni,, Calochlris leucorhina & Calochlris tytonis being outside).
For ID note the fur colour and roughness, skull size, relative sizes of foreclaws 1, 2 and 4. Of taxonomic importance is the malleus (the hammer bone in the inner ear), and the mallear vesicle that houses it, but this requires skulls.

Second Nature Walk: Fungi

For this nature walk, I walked through Pine Tree Preserve on campus to the reservoir where I then explored some woodsy areas off of the paths. The weather was cooler this morning than it was on the last nature walk I went on, and it was overcast. Similarly to on my first nature walk, however, I was surprised by how much fungi I was able to observe–especially now that I was looking for it. As I continued my walk, I learned to look in a few common places in which I tended to find fungi: on...

Try to Identify

We're glad you've made a number of observations but try to identify some of the observations you've made. You may be omitting a step in the process. Once you upload the images, you then need to click "what did you see?" Once you click that, iNaturalist will provide ID suggestions for you. Then select the best choice out of the five or so given.

Keep it up! See if you can ID the next dozen images you upload.

Es ist absolut beeindruckend, wie wir in der Kürze der Zeit - sowohl auf die Ankündigung des Projekts bezogen, als auch auf das teilweise sehr verregnete Wochenende (nur 2 gute Beobachtungstage) - so viele Arten beobachten konnten.
Eine Woche nach Projektende verteilen sich die 419 Artenfunde auf 850 Beobachtungen. Insgesamt waren über 100 Beobachter beteiligt, alleine über 80 Schülerinnen und Schüler des Bunsen-Gymnasiums Heidelberg suchten fleißig nach Arten am Neckar. Karsten hat ...

If you give it your location, you can decide where you want to study, what taxon, and then it’ll automatically incrementally load more flashcard. There’s a scoring system, and basic spaced repetition algorithm so you’ll see flashcards you don’t know more often than the ones you do...

Siedzuń Sosnowy

W Polskich lasach występuje rzadki grzyb Siedzuń sosnowy.

W Polsce uznawany był za gatunek rzadki. Znajduje się na Czerwonej liście roślin i grzybów Polski. Ma status R – potencjalnie zagrożony z powodu ograniczonego zasięgu geograficznego i małych obszarów siedliskowych. Znajduje się na listach gatunków zagrożonych także w Belgii, Estonii, Litwie, Norwegii, Łotwie. Wbrew ustaleniom czerwonej listy w Polsce jest jednak dość częsty.
