Lebensraum Zoo - Heimat für einheimische Tierarten

Der Zoo Heidelberg bietet nicht nur Lebensraum für die Zootiere, sondern ist auch ein Ort, an dem heimische Tierarten willkommen sind. Immer wieder huscht ein Eichhörnchen über die Besucherwege, im Sommer sind die Störche regelmäßig zu Gast, auf der Trockenmauer tummeln sich Eidechsen, Stockenten schwimmen auf den Seen und Vögel brüten in den Büschen. Insekten schwirren über die Wiesen oder halten sich an den Blüten der Pflanzen auf. Wer genau hinsieht, kann zahlreiche heimische Tierarte...

Nature Walk May 29, 2024

Today I went on a nature walk that I found very refreshing. I was working earlier that day, drove right to a trail near where I live, and enjoyed the beautiful conservation area. It was nothing short of a beautiful evening. It was around 5:10 when I started and the temperature was about 70 degrees. I saw a variety of vascular plants, angiosperms particularly, and I believe only one gymnosperms in a pine conifer. The first two links I took some pictures of moss to highlight the most commo...

Diastrophus of the Western Nearctic and the Mystery of Diastrophus fusiformans

Hello iNaturalists and Gall Enthusiasts!

If you don't know me, My name is Charles Davis and I am an Entomology PhD Candidate at Penn State studying the taxonomy and evolution of gall wasps in the family Cynipidae. One of the main chapters of my dissertation is a revision of the genus Diastrophus within the Nearctic (North America). Diastrophus is a group of gall wasps that makes galls on plants of the family Rosaceae, mainly cinquefoils of the tribe Potentilleae and brambles of t...

Slow Spring, Cool Weather

It's been a wet and cool Spring limiting butterfly action in our yard. A few blues and swallowtails have paid a visit, but they rarely land. Arctic Skippers have come and gone, and a couple of Tortoiseshells and Commas have also come and gone. Looking forward to a bit more sunshine and warmth in June.

Welcome to iNaturalist Project for Systematic Botany

Finding new plants and recognizing "old friends" can be rewarding. We will be using the iNaturalist app to make the process more interesting by allowing everyone to share and learn from each other throughout the term. I will go over the basics of recording observations in class, but you can also find several short how-to videos in the app itself by selecting "Help" from the More pull-down menu.
You can make many of the observations our class field trips. However, i suggest that yo...

Censorship of Taxonomic Discussion on iNaturalist Forum

So Tony Iwane is now outright muting or deleting my posts about taxonomy on the forum. For those who say i should bring up my concerns about taxonomy on the forum... this is why i do not do so, thought he's become much more blatant about it. I suspect this may get deleted too, but we'll see. The journal posts don't seem to be as heavily censored as the forum.

Below is the content of the post that was censored, in response to 'wait there are jobs for taxonomists?'. it is censored ...

Thoughts on Quabbin Deer


Having spent hundreds of hours at the Quabbin, I've noticed that deer seem to be much less common than they would be in a similar sized forested region anywhere else. Which has me wondering, is the thriving moose population affecting the deer population? Moose require lots of space and food and the two species, both cervids, have very similar food requirements. I'm sure Quabbin has a greater deer population than moose but it definitely does seem that deer would be even mor...

I would recommend changing your observation license to CC-BY so that they can be used by local record centres and other recording groups. The default license is CC-BY-NC which restricts their usefulness.

Chestnut Hill Reservoir Walk on 5/28/24

I walked around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir for around 45 minutes. It was very warm, humid, and sunny so many animals were out on the pond. On my walk I saw a variety of different plants - some with colors and others that were all green. I saw lots of non-vascular plants which tended to be only green. I also saw many different angiosperms which had flowers of varying colors (white, purple, and yellow were the colors I saw). Plants are a kingdom in the domain eukaryotes which is a domain ...

A brief review of genus Panoploscelis

Here I want to talk about a remarkable katydid group, genus Panoploscelis, also with common name spiny lobster katydids or giant lobster crickets. This genus mainly distributes in western and central south America, with three species in it, they are P. armata, P. scudderi and P. specularis. In Hugel. 2019 P. angusticauda has already been synonymized with P. scudderi. Although this is not a big genus, but there are still some problems need to be solved.
Among all the species, P. scudd...

Confusion on new observation fields?

I bundled bunch of observation fields to Built Environment project to make it possible to add more detailed information to observation. It's not mandatory to add them. You can still add observation to project without adding them, but even then additional dialog pops up. In the dialog, if you want to add just to the project without observation field, do so, don't click "add" to all observation fields, just for the project a...

A new interpretation of the evolutionary and ecological strategy of whiteyes and silvereyes (Zosterops)

Zosterops spp. (whiteyes and silvereyes, https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any&subview=map&taxon_id=17439&view=species) are odd in several ways.

They are

  • remarkably wide/versatile in diet, for such small-bodied birds (about 10 grams adult body mass in both sexes);
  • the only birds with a brus...

Welcome Announcement

Hi Everyone and welcome to our inaturalist project. Hopefully you have gotten a chance to familiarize yourself with the inaturalist website and app. If not, feel free to ask questions and help each other out! All we would like for you to do is take a few pictures of the flowers, stem , and leaves of plants you see a monarch visiting or feeding on. Don't worry about capturing the monarch in your photo since they will likely fly away as you take close up detailed pictures for identificatio...

Support for ID refinement

Here below is a list of small mammal observations (ie, observations which include at least one ID related to small mammals) for which the community ID is still at a Superfamily level or higher. If anyone is willing to go through some of these and give their input, we could help some of these observations to be identified at least at a family level or lower.

Here is the selected list of observations:

Tips for taking photographs (important for plants!)

Hi team,

Here is some general guidance on taking photographs to support accurate identification. This is especially important for plants!

Taking good photographs
The key to using iNaturalist effectively is to upload high quality photographs. You can take photographs directly on your phone and upload it to the app in the field, or you can use a high-quality external camera and upload them by first transferring those photos to your phone or computer. Note – when you are...

Welcome everyone to the iNaturalist project for Earthworm's landscape program in Surat Thani! This project is intended to help catalogue biodiversity data and provide a reference for the geolocations of observed species. In general, the iNaturalist application can also help support species identification which can be challenging. I will follow this post with a series of external project on biodiversity in Thailand.

Currently, myself and Francisco are the only managers of the proj...

Asasp-Arros and Amphibians

Today I wrote an email to the maire of Asasp-Arros about their responsibilities totheir amphibian population.

Asasp-Arros is a very cool town where amphibians and humans coexist in extreme proximity. For example, the calotriton asper colony inhabits exclusively a cave system and the manmade construction around its mouth. Apart from an underground river entrance leading to a large pond which passes under the road, and a cave entrance, this is entirely surrounded by buildings and a...
