Annotation resolution: phenology

I don't do new year resolutions, but I'll make one exception. Well, two. I'm going to do lots of annotation (and not just phenology) from here on out. And take breaks from doing it to use the new piece of exercise equipment next to my computer so that I'll have more energy to observe stuff outside.

I discovered that you can filter observations that don't have annotations, so I'm doing phenology of TX/OK anemones now (note all the settings): https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identify?reviewed=true&quality_grade=needs_id,research&page=2&order_by=random&taxon_id=883652&place_id=18,12&without_term_id=12

And here's an interesting article about plant phenology.

And here's an amazing document covering all aspects of plant phenology.

Setting yourself up for an annotation session:

  1. go to Identify mode
  2. select the taxa (e.g. Lepidoptera or flowering plants) and the place (anywhere in the world as no local expertise is required)
  3. go to Filters and select Research Grade in addition to Needs ID
  4. open More Filters and select Without Annotation and a relevant option for your taxa
  5. click through each observation (with the Annotations tab selected) and annotate away!

Once selecting all the options, you can bookmark the resulting URL for quick access later.

I did this when I was looking at the DFW peak times for asp caterpillars. And you know about the pheno chart on the taxon page, right? There is also a setting dial that gives you a link to add anno's, but you still have to tweak the identify filters.
