Cumplido el primer objetivo

Tal como se planificó, llegaron representantes de 12 Parques Nacionales (faltó Río Negro Sopladora) al crater del volcán Pululahua.. junto a ellos, estuvieron personal de la Reserva Geobotánica Pululahua, así como de la Dirección Nacional de Biodiversidad del Ministerio del Ambiente y del Instituto Nacional de Biodiversidad, para participar del taller teórico práctico sobre el uso de iNaturalist. Pudimos tomar fotografías de diferentes sectores como la zona de camping, las laderas del sector El Hospital, el sendero que sube al Cerro Pondoña, el manatial, e incluso se llegó a los límites de la Reserva en el sector de Nieblí, abarcando diferentes tipos de cobertura (áreas agrícolas, bosques xerofíticos, bosques de estribación, etc) en un rango altitudinal que comprendía desde los 2.000 msnm (sector Nieblí) hasta los 2.900 msnm (sector BP Tanlahua).

Esperemos si hay alguna sorpresa en la biodiversidad registrada en los dos días..

Title
Reading between the lines: revealing cryptic species diversity and colour patterns in Hypselodoris nudibranchs (Mollusca: Heterobranchia: Chromodorididae)
Abstract
A molecular phylogeny is presented for 48 species of the genus Hypselodoris (Family: Chromodorididae), which incorporated 64 newly sequenced specimens. Hypselodoris is monophyletic and divided into clades that exhibit varying support. Novel diversity was found, with the distinctness of 17 new species of Hypselodoris supported by the molecular phylogeny, subsequent species delimitation analysis and morphological data. The following species are described here: Hypselodoris alburtuqali Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris brycei Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris cerisae Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris confetti Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris iba Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris juniperae Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris katherinae Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris lacuna Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris melanesica Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris paradisa Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris perii Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris roo Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris rositoi Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris skyleri Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris variobranchia Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov., Hypselodoris violacea Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov. and Hypselodoris yarae Gosliner & Johnson sp. nov. Further examination of colour patterns supports previous suggestions that inheritance of colour patterns from common ancestors occurs, as do convergences, driven by Müllerian mimicry.

7-12-19 San Carlos Bunche Beach Preserve, preserve on Casa Ybel Road

Today is my birthday, which means that I get to decide what we do! And obviously, I chose to go birding!
The day before we were driving home from the Corkscrew Swamp, and I spotted a sign for San Carlos Bunche Beach Preserve. Then I looked on eBird and lots of shore birds were seen that day! I knew that that was where I wanted to go for my birthday! Right after lunch, we hopped in the car and drove over the bridge to the mainland to go to the beach! When I arrived, I immediately began looking for birds. There were masses of red seaweed washed up, which brought some tiny organisms for the birds to feed on. This causes there to be many plovers and sandpipers. There was also a Little Blue Heron further down the beach! In total I saw 10 species of bird, many of them lifers! Here is the complete list:
4 Dunlin
30 Semipalmated plovers
30 Laughing Gulls
10 Ruddy Turnstones
20 Willet
5 Snowy Egret
1 Little Blue Heron
5 Wilson's Plovers
4 Short-Billed Dowitchers
2 Western Sandpipers
After the already successful day, we decided to visit an SCCF Preserve on Casa Ybel Road (I forget the name of the preserve...) where I saw a lifer Common Gallinue! Unfortunately I did not have my camera, so we raced back to the hotel and grabbed it, and went straight back to the preserve. Fortunately the Gallinule was still there, and I was able to photograph it! After photographing the first one, I walked around the preserve a bit, and saw several adults and several chicks! This is the full list:
10 White Ibis
9 Common Gallinule
1 Great Blue Heron
2 Osprey
1 American Alligator
I hope to return to this park soon to see what other waterfowl will be found here.

Monique Keiran: For butterflies, mythology lives on in descriptive names.

We can thank a 312-year-old Swede for making a harmless bug-hunting hobby seem like tempting fate with capricious Greek gods. In the mid-1700s, Carl Linnaeus revamped the way we classify, categorize and name living things in related groups. He leaned heavily on the Greek and Roman classics when he named the butterfly groups.

And so we have the Parnassian butterflies — found in mountain meadows — and the Satyrids, Nymphalids and Danaianids, as well as species such as Danaus plexippus, Polygonia faunus, Parnassium phoebus and Phoebis sennae. These are scientific names, based on the two-named system to distinguish genus-plus-species that Linnaeus put in place and is still used in biology today.

Sri Lanka - iNaturalist World Tour

It feels like Week 8 of the iNaturalist World Tour flew by. We end it in Sri Lanka! The top observer, @nuwan is a research associate and wildlife guard in Sri Lanka with observations across much of the country. Many of the top observers, such as @ahospers, @denis_m, @nickbelliveau, and @kinmatsu are visitors from elsewhere. Other top observers like are from Sri Lanka such as @shanelle97 who is currently studying at the University of Washington in the US. @amila_sumanapala, a PhD student at University of Colombo, Sri Lanka, is researching Odonata. You can read more about @amila_sumanapala in this Observation of the Week post about a spider he observed in Malaysia. @chathuri_jayatissa is a zoololgy student and @sanjaya_kanishka runs the Snakes of Sri Lanka database. Don't miss this Observation of the Week post about a jungle cat seen by @markuslilje in Sri Lanka’s Uda Walawe National Park located towards the southern end of the country (where @kinmatsu, @chartuso and others' observations are clustered).


The observations per month graph from Sri Lanka is bit distorted by the short term impact of students from University of Peradeniya's participation in an April 2019 event through the QuestaGame platform (which used to repost observations here for identification by the iNaturalist community). This temporarily increased the number of observations per month by about an order of magnitude, but doesn't reflect any actual growth in the iNaturalist community from Sri Lanka.


The top identifier overall and for birds is @sethmiller who is based in India. @rajibmaulick and @aniruddha_singhamahapatra are two other top identifiers based in India. @elaphrornis, who is based in New York but originally from Sri Lanka, leads insect identifications. @nuwan is a top identifier in addition to being a top observer and leads plant identifications. @amila_sumanapala is another top identifier and top observer. Thanks to everyone else identifying observations from Sri Lanka!


What can we do to get more people using iNaturalist in Sri Lanka? Please share your thoughts below or on this forum thread

@nuwan @ahospers @denis_m @nickbelliveau @kinmatsu @sethmiller @rajibmaulick @elaphrornis @aniruddha_singhamahapatra @amila_sumanapala

We’ll be back tomorrow in Algeria!

Braconid-producing Rearing Experiment

Photos taken on August 4, 6, and 12 are a sequence of a rearing experiment. The painted lady caterpillar was taken for rearing. It had been feeding on Canada thistle. Observations of silky stands and frass led to its being observed. On August 6, 2019 what cocoon-like masses were found in the container and the caterpillar was dead. On August 12, 2019 about 25 braconid wasps eclosed from pupas in the cocoon-like structure. Wasps were about 3 mm in length.

7-11-19 Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, CREW Bird Rookery Swamp, Shady Hollow Blvd. Species List and Summery

Today I awoke with a spring in my step and adventure in my heart! My parents and I decided to go on a little road trip to go to Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary! This is a large preserve with miles of trails that you can walk. They also have a "super" rare Ghost Orchid in bloom right now, so we were able to see that! One of the first birds we saw were White-Eyed Vireos bouncing around the tree tops. I also saw my lifer Carolina Wren here! We saw 2 and heard one. The two we saw seemed to be going back and forth to a nest carrying food (for young?) Our full list for the swamp is below:
2 White-Eyed Vireos
2 (+ 1 heard only) Carolina Wrens
1 Anhinga
1 White Ibis
1 Red-Shouldered Hawk
2 Northern Cardinals
1 Red-Bellied Woodpecker
On the way home in the car, speeding along a highway, I noticed a sign off to the right with an arrow that said "CREW Bird Rookery Swamp." We decided to turn the car around and go see what the place was like. I was expecting a rehabilitation center, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a small set of trails like the Bailey Tract. I was standing looking over the edge of a small stream when my mom told me that there was a Red-Shouldered Hawk on a post very close by. I was able to photograph it very easily. Here is the full list from CREW-
1 Red-Shouldered Hawk
1 Great Egret
On the way back to the highway on Shady Hollow Blvd. (the road CREW is on) we saw several different bird species. We were driving along the empty road, when all of a sudden I saw what I thought was a Northern Mockingbird on a barbed wire fence. I got out of the car with my camera, and at that moment I realized what I was looking at. My lifer Loggerhead Shrike! I told my mom this, and we both started madly taking photos. There were 2 other shrikes in various places along the barbed wire. The original one caught a fly, impaled it on the wire, and tore it apart slowly. I was lucky to get a photo of this at well! There was also a Black Vulture very close on the side of the road! I was able to get photos of this as well. This is our complete list from Shady Hollow Blvd-
3 Loggerhead Shrikes
6 Black Vultures
15 Great Egrets
2 Northern Mockingbirds
3 Mourning Doves
1 Great Blue Heron
I will definitely keep my eyes open on this road if I go to CREW again!

Всем спасибо! Август и осень - не время отказываться от вылазок на природу. Подавляющее большинство растений надежно определяются не только по цветкам, но и по плодам или листьям. До снега еще очень далеко!

ARVAIA CACCIA ALLA OVATURE DI CIMICE ASIATICA SABATO 17 AGOSTO 2019

Sabato 17 agosto
ARVAIA
attività dalle 7.30 del mattino alle 7.30 di sera (un'ora di pausa sull'amaca!! nel momento più caldo).
Fotografie fino alle 18.10 quando la macchina fotografica ha esaurito la batteria.

Risultato della caccia:

6 ovature non schiuse probabilmente di cimice asiatica (con alcuni forse su alcune ovature): abbiamo un totale di 144 uova (tralasciando un uovo già schiuso o mangiato al momento della raccolta) + 1 ovatura non di cimice asiatica
In 1 ovatura primo di questo diario si è già schiuso a casa un uovo, con l'uscita di un parassitoide scelionide.
1 ovatura alla raccolta un calcidoideo (probabilmente Anastatus) si aggirava intorno (ma non sono riuscito a fotografarlo).

20 ovature schiuse trovate probabilmente di cimice asiatica, di cui 17 fotografate.
Di queste 17 fotografate una mostra dei segni di parassitizzazione (il modo in cui le uova sono aperte).

Se sto alla situazione di 17 + 6 ovature = 23 ovature di cui 3 sicuramente parassitizzate, abbiamo un 13% circa di ovature parassitizzate.

Contemporaneamente alla caccia installati 13 feromoni di aggregazione.

La mappa completa di feromoni + raccolta + avvistamenti masse di uova schiuse è qui
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1E1DmeBFBFsjgC_jJQsbE6bfy0ASNms_j&usp=sharing

Come potete vedere la caccia è stata fatta soprattutto negli aceri campestri.
Alla fine ho fatto una ricerca sulla canapa: promette bene: 1 ovatura trovata, trovata molta cimice asiatica. Non ho fatto nessuna foto perché la macchina fotografica aveva esaurito la batteria.

7-10-19 J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and Rabbit Road Species List and Summery

Today, after going to the beach, we decided to go to the National Wildlife Refuge again! We absolutely love it there because you never know what you will see! We were driving to the refuge on Rabbit Road, when I yelled," Wait! Turn around! There was a Pileated Woodpecker on that tree!" We turned the car around, and low and behold, there was a female Pileated Woodpecker feeding on insects in a tree in the Sanibel Health Club parking lot! After a few minutes of watching her, a male appeared also. The males and the females can be distinguished because the males have a red mustache, and the females have a black/gray one. This is called sexual dimorphism. We saw plenty of birds at the refuge! This is our complete list-
13 Great Egrets
6 Roseate Spoonbills
1 Green Heron
3 Tricolored Heron
2 Yellow-Crowned Night Herons
4 Brown Pelicans
1 Osprey
1 Anhinga
1 Great Blue Heron
I am so excited to come back here soon!

7-9-19 J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and Bailey Tract Species List and Summary

Today we decided to go back to the NWR to see if we could see as much as yesterday! We arrived here in the afternoon, to a short rain shower. This caused us to not see as much, but we still saw some rather interesting things. There were many Great Egrets in trees across the water; I could count 16, but there were most likely more. This is our entire NWR list:
16 Great Egrets
2 Great Blue Herons
1 Yellow-Crowned Night Heron
1 Northern Cardinal
1 Anhinga
1 Osprey
After the refuge, we decided to take a hike at the Bailey Tract, an extension of the refuge with several miles of trails. We hiked the American Alligator trail, as it is the best trail to see the black-necked stilts that are nesting on the sandbar! While we were walking, I got a very alligator "vibe" if you will, but alas, we saw no alligators. A short ways down the trail, we saw a very dark, bluish heron. I thought it was a dark morph Reddish Egret, but it turned out to just be a dark Little Blue Heron. It seemed too big for a little blue, but it did have the same coloration as most Little Blue Herons. Here is our complete list from the Bailey Tract:
1 Black-Necked Stilt
1 Little Blue Heron
4 Killdeer
1 Red-Bellied Woodpecker
I hope to return to the Bailey Tract and refuge soon!

7-8-19 J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge Species List and Summary

Today is our first full day of vacation in Sanibel, Florida! We have gone before, but this year I want to bird even more than last year. Today we decided to go to our favorite place to bird without going onto the mainland, the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. We have seen wonderful egrets and herons here, so I hope that we will see even more in the days to come! The refuge covers the majority of Sanibel, and there is also an extension of the refuge, known as the Bailey Tract. The NWR has a 4 mile long loop known as Wildlife Drive, where you can see many different species of birds. We saw many different species; my favorites are Yellow-Crowned Night Herons because they look gorgeous and they are very bold and hang out on the drive near your can. You can get very close to them. This is our entire list for the day:
1 Reddish Egret
1 Anhinga
1 Red-Bellied Woodpecker
5 Yellow-Crowned Night Herons
2 Green Herons
4 Brown Pelicans
14 Great Egrets
1 Little Blue Heron
3 Osprey
1 Great Blue Heron
6 Double-Crested Cormorants
2 Laughing Gulls
1 Spotted Sandpiper
2 Tricolored Herons
I will come back here many times while I am in Florida! I love it so much!

6-28-19 MN Valley National Wildlife Refuge Species List and Summary

Today we are in MN for my cousin's wedding, which inevitably also turned into a birding trip. We decided to go to the NWR for the best chance to see water birds. Unfortunately, we didn't see many water birds, but we saw some others! We arrived at 10:30 AM and it was as humid and warm as ever, and it only got warmer as the day grew on. Almost the entire walk was in the woods, but it was still sweltering. We came across 2 White-Tailed Deer that weren't that scared of us, but were still very secretive. One of the first birds we saw was a beautiful male Indigo Bunting. It was in a tree that was visible from the refuge overlook. This is our entire list from the day:
3 Turkey Vultures
1 Red-Tailed Hawk
1 Red-Bellied Woodpecker
2 Downy Woodpeckers
1 Blue Jay
1 White-Breasted Nuthatch
1 House Wren
3 American Robins
8 Brown-Headed Cowbirds
2 Common Grackles
3 Indigo Buntings
9 House Sparrows
If I am ever in MN, I will definitely stop here again. I loved every minute of this trip.

6-15-19 Deer Run Birding Bonanza Species List and Summary

Today was the Birding Bonanza at Deer Run Forest Preserve. The Winnebago County Forest Preserve Get Outside Program has this walk every year, where we go on a 2 hour hike to bird. Deer Run is mostly a prairie, so we did see a lot of prairie species. We arrived there to discover several other people waiting for them to start. It was cool at the beginning, around 65 degrees. The sun came out after about the first hour, and I had a wonderful time on this walk. I hope to come here again. Here is our full list-
1 Bald Eagle
2 Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks
3 Eastern Kingbirds
3 Eastern Meadowlarks
2 Common Yellowthroats
50 Tree Swallows
6 American Goldfinches
2 Baltimore Orioles
4 Dickcissels
1 Barn Swallow
2 Song Sparrows
1 unknown flycatcher
1 Sandhill Crane
1 Indigo Bunting (Heard only)
1 Red-Bellied Woodpecker (Heard only)
1 Blue Winged Warbler (Heard only)
I really hope to come back here again, as the birding was fantastic.

5-19-19 Rock Cut State Park Species List and Summary

Today, my mom and I decided to take an early morning walk at Rock Cut State Park. Our birding friends out at Sand Bluff Bird Observatory call it "Warbler Nirvana" in the springtime, so we had to check it out. We arrived early at 10:00 AM to some foggy skies and about 70 degree weather. Our friend had told us that the Puree Path was the best place to see warblers, so we went there first. We ran into a man named Scott who set us on the hot spot for the birds. The air almost smelled like birds. We saw 6 species of warbler, and 8 other species! It was am amazing birding day, topped off with ice cream in the cafe watching rain pour down in sheets outside. Our total list includes-
2 Blackburnian Warblers
2 Blackpoll Warblers
3 Yellow Warblers
2 Blue-Gray Gnatcatchers
1 Yellow-Rumped Warbler
1 Magnolia Warbler
2 Scarlet Tanagers
3 Turkey Vultures
2 Wild Turkeys
1 Blue Jay
10 Canada Geese
1 Bay-Breasted Warbler
5 Brown-Headed Cowbirds
1 Song Sparrow
I had a great time today, and I will be back soon!

Смена лидера в проекте "Флора России" !

Утром 18 августа проект "Флора Москвы | Flora of Moscow" (https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/flora-of-moscow) вышел на первое место по числу подтвержденных наблюдений. Впервые с 17 февраля 2019 г. с первого места был потеснен Приморский край (https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/flora-of-russia/journal/21705-flora-of-russia).

Кроме того, Москва с самого начала идёт на первом месте по числу наблюдателей. Их уже 600 человек, в т.ч. 52 подписчика проекта "Флора Москвы | Flora of Moscow".

Это отличные новости, поскольку до начала глобального городского квеста City Nature Challenge 2020 осталось 250 дней! Совместно с Пресс-службой Русского географического общества мы подготовили краткий пресс-релиз о челлендже: https://www.rgo.ru/ru/article/moskva-i-sevastopol-vpervye-primut-uchastie-v-ezhegodnom-sorevnovanii-city-nature-challenge . Рассказывайте друзьям, коллегам и знакомым!

***

Москва и Севастополь впервые примут участие в ежегодном соревновании City Nature Challenge

Два города России – Москва и Севастополь – впервые примут участие в международном соревновании City Nature Challenge. Ежегодный международный конкурс стартует 24 апреля 2020 года. Его цель – привлечь жителей разных городов мира к поиску и документированию биоразнообразия их регионов.

Впервые City Nature Challenge состоялся в 2016 году. Первоначально между собой соревновались только два американских города – Лос-Анджелес и Сан-Франциско. Однако с каждым годом география городов-участников стремительно расширялась. Так, в 2017 году в конкурсе участвовали 16 городов США, а на следующий год – 68 городов по всему миру. В 2019 году в мероприятии приняли участие уже 35 126 человек – учёных и энтузиастов из 159 городов Америки, Великобритании, Малайзии, Чехии, Эквадора, Мексики, Японии, Новой Зеландии, Тайваня и других стран. Им удалось занести в базу более 31 тысячи новых биологических видов.

Задача участников соревнования заключается в том, чтобы найти и сфотографировать флору и фауну своего города, а затем загрузить снимки на портал соревнований с помощью приложения или сайта iNaturalist. После загрузки материалов их анализирует экспертная комиссия конкурса – профессиональные учёные и опытные натуралисты. Они определяют точность предоставленных участниками данных, а также выбирают победителей – города, собравшие наибольшее количество уникальных видов флоры и фауны.

Россия примет участие в конкурсе в первый раз. Возможность запечатлеть биоразнообразие своих городов появится у жителей Москвы и Севастополя. Они смогут запечатлеть представителей животного и растительного мира своего региона и поделиться результатами своих наблюдений с мировым научным сообществом, которые будут автоматически наноситься на интерактивную карту.

В 2020 году конкурс пройдёт в три этапа. Так, с 24 по 27 апреля участникам предстоит сфотографировать и загрузить получившиеся снимки на конкурсный сайт. Затем жюри конкурса определит победителей соревнования. Их назовут 4 мая 2020 года. Подробности о City Nature Challenge и участии в конкурсе можно почитать на официальном сайте проекта, а также на портале iNaturalist.

Москва и Севастополь впервые примут участие в ежегодном соревновании City Nature Challenge

Два города России – Москва и Севастополь – впервые примут участие в международном соревновании City Nature Challenge. Ежегодный международный конкурс стартует 24 апреля 2020 года. Его цель – привлечь жителей разных городов мира к поиску и документированию биоразнообразия их регионов.

Впервые City Nature Challenge состоялся в 2016 году. Первоначально между собой соревновались только два американских города – Лос-Анджелес и Сан-Франциско. Однако с каждым годом география городов-участников стремительно расширялась. Так, в 2017 году в конкурсе участвовали 16 городов США, а на следующий год – 68 городов по всему миру. В 2019 году в мероприятии приняли участие уже 35 126 человек – учёных и энтузиастов из 159 городов Америки, Великобритании, Малайзии, Чехии, Эквадора, Мексики, Японии, Новой Зеландии, Тайваня и других стран. Им удалось занести в базу более 31 тысячи новых биологических видов.
