Introduction - Vision

Hey,

I'm Doug, an enthusiastic amateur backyard naturalist. It was also my dream to try to ID everything on the property where I lived. Since 2019, we own our own property, and I've found iNat to be the perfect tool to learn and document all the species I observe here. It's my new addiction, basically a remedy to reading too much news lately.

I've always been interested in learning about local ecology, and have lots of backlogged photos of things I'd probably never get around to identifying, but the crowdsource magic of iNat makes it possible. So, I've been uploading old photos.

My dream is to go through some historical photos, my family has been on this land for a few generations, and do some then/now to document some of the huge trees nearby. My first was this paper birch in the front yard, which I found a photo from nearly 40 years ago:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?verifiable=any&place_id=any&field:Observation%20group=63098941

My other highlights have been getting into "herp"ing and finding many of the local blue racers since moving here: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any&subview=table&taxon_id=27146&user_id=dooug&verifiable=any

Hope someday to share with my family and friends, so they can join the fun.

Why I chose to do the Eco-Quest Challenge

I chose to do the Eco-Quest challenge for my project because I love nature/learning about nature and I am always looking for an excuse to go outside. I'm really excited to explore New York City parks, and look for different species of plants and learn more about my city's nature. For my initial steps, I created the iNaturalist account, and downloaded the app. I plan on taking photos of local organisms I observe near me and uploading them on my profile.

Journal 1

I decided to do this assignment because I am really interested in learning about the different species located near me. I find that during the school year, and especially during the pandemic, it is difficult to go outside. This project will encourage me to explore nature in an enjoyable way. I am particularly interested in this project because of the EcoQuests. It will be really fun to try and look for specific species and learn about native species in the area.
I decided to to go to Riverside Park, and take pictures of different plants. I took a picture of the American Asters because I saw a bee on it, and I watched the bee fly from flower to flower, and after visiting all the flowers, fly away. The purple flower, Spider Flowers, was interesting to me because it was growing in a constrained environment. I found it interesting to think about the fact that nature has to evolve and in many ways grow around the different things that humans introduce into their environment.

Millepora ID

@joe_fish comment on observation https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/63227991

'I had to refresh my memory just now as to why I'd settled on M. tenera as the correct name, as there are quite a few Indo-Pacific taxa from this genus with a branching morphology. I'm going to write this all down so that I don't forget it all again. It's a bit complicated...

The oldest Indo-Pacific Millepora taxa, Millepora exaesa Forsskål 1775 and Millepora dichotoma Forskål 1775, were described from the Red Sea, where this branching species doesn't seem to occur. There are plenty of references to M. dichotoma outside the Red Sea, but these seem to be based on misidentifications.

M. tortuosa Dana 1848 would be the next oldest, described from Fiji. (figure 3); however, this seems to be a junior homonym of the Millepora tortuosa Esper 1797, which is actually an alga.

Next would be M. intricata Milne-Edwards 1860, which somewhat resembles this phenotype (figure 2a)... but that taxon was described from a specimen whose provenance was unknown, so it's debatable whether it should be considered a valid species or a nomen dubium (I'd argue for the latter), let alone whether it has any relation to this branching phenotype.

M. murrayi Quelch 1884 would be next... but it's phenotype is very distinct (figure 5), and thus it's unclear whether it is conspecific with the more loosely branched forms common to the Indo-Pacific. I've only seen a few specimens referable to the murrayi phenotype.

And then there's M. tenella Ortmann 1892, which is described from Tanzania and almost certainly refers to this branched phenotype (though it was unfortunately not illustrated in the description). Unfortunately, it is also a junior homonym, of Millepora tenella Esper, 1795... which seems to be a Seriatopora.

Which brings us to M. tenera Boschma 1949, which was established as a replacement name for the M. tenella described by Ortmann. This is the long and winding road that brings us to this valid name for this species... I think.'

In Colombia, Former Guerillas Use iNaturalist to Record Biodiversity

For over five decades, the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia—Ejército del Pueblo (FARC) guerilla group waged a civil war in Colombia. After FARC signed a ceasefire in 2016, there was an opportunity to explore and survey the biodiverse regions the group had occupied, and the need to incorporate thousands of guerrillas into Colombian society. 

The initiative GROW Colombia, supported by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF-UK),  is working to sustainably develop “Colombia’s agri-industry and bio-economy for the benefit of the Colombian people,” and they are collaborating with Jaime Gonogora (@jaimegongora), an Associate Professor at the University of Sydney and native Colombian. Professor Góngora has been working with the former guerrillas to conduct biodiversity surveys of the areas they occupied, and is using iNaturalist as one of the tools in their work.

I recently spoke with Professor Góngora (above) via Zoom about his work with the former guerrillas and how they are using iNaturalist. 

Jaime Góngora grew up in the mountains of Colombia and, after moving to Bogotá, had to work to pay for his university education, becoming the first in his family to graduate from college. “I wasn’t the most talented student at all,” he says, “[but] I knew that I loved biology. I wanted to become an academic, a scientist, [and] conserve nature.” He credits meeting Chris Moran and Frank Nicholas of the University of Sydney, who were doing genetics work, and

They said to me “We don’t think you’re ready yet, but what if we offer you a multi-year plan and you can come and work with us.” I didn’t believe them but I didn’t see a lot of possibilities in Colombia, I knocked doors everywhere. I stuck to [their] plan, and I was able to apply for a scholarship in 1999.

Jaime has since settled in Sydney, where he now has a family and is advising students of his own. One of them was working in the United Kingdom and connected him with the GROW Colombia initiative, which is directed by Professor Federica Di Palma. He started working with them on programs for academics, but tells me “I realized that something was missing there.

I said OK, I have these ideas. I already had some experiences in Colombia working with communities, I knew a little bit about the history, about the situation, and I said we can do this with these combatants. What’s simple but powerful is we can empower these combatants to know and understand nature, so they can contribute to science in doing inventories of biodiversity but actually using that for ecotourism...they are undertaking in remote areas of Colombia as part of the reincorporation into society. 

The program, called Peace with Nature*, came together over the period of about eighteen months. Much of this preparation involved building a network of Colombian scientists and researchers who could help, as Jaime wanted the former combatants to build relationships not only with him but with a community of scientists in the country. As they started to design workshops and trainings, they made sure to not only teach standard methods of taking inventories (including using binoculars for wildlife, “which they had [previously] only used to look at enemies [with]”) but to combine that with the former combatants’ deep traditional knowledge of the environment they’d lived in for decades. For example, some former guerrillas have pointed out the differences between two plants that a scientist thought were the same species. 

Training also included how-tos for iNaturalist, and iNat’s partner in Colombia, Instituto Humboldt, has been supporting Peace with Nature. Each survey team included a group who were taking photos for iNaturalist, and when they returned to the villages, they uploaded their finds to iNat. Jaime tells me they plan to curate the observations, and that at least one former guerrilla, @ricardosemillas, has really taken to iNat. 

These are only the first steps of course, and the group envisions engaging future ecotourists with iNat as well. “[The former guerrillas will] go and...show them the attractions..and the tourists can take pictures so we will be encouraging tourists to increase the participatory inventories through iNaturalist. In that way, tourists become citizen scientists and increase the inventories [in the area],” says Jaime. 

While the entire endeavor is clearly close to his heart, Jaime is especially proud of the progress he’s observed when it comes to former enemies bonding over nature. Due to security issues, Colombian military and police - who not too long ago were fighting the guerrillas - accompanied the group and Jaime recalls 

I saw an opportunity in particular with the police being close to us, and I said “Hey, come here, you can be involved,” and I have pictures of the guerillas teaching children from schools and the police how to use iNaturalist...In the last workshop we have the first member of the military officially being part of the inventories.

People think sometimes to see the negative aspects of people. My tendency is to see the positive aspects of people. What is positive there that we can use to connect people to a change in behavior that could be transformational for the purpose of your project, in this case conserving nature and reincorporating people into society...iNaturalist is contributing to empower people to do transformational and positive change and to global peace.


- There are a few other articles about this program, check them out here, here, and here.

- And a nice video about the program here. It’s in Spanish and English. As an English speaker, I’ve found that if I turn on captions then, in the gear icon, choose Auto Translate and English, it’s actually pretty understandable. I imagine it works well for other languages too.


* Jaime wants to note that Peace with Nature has been a collaborative project in which he has engaged more than 10 academic, research and government institutions including the Amazonian Scientific Research Institute SINCHI, ECOMUN, ARN, UniAmazonia, and the UN Verification Mission.

Plants and flowers

This weekend we went to a garden and I saw tons of worms, bugs, and plants. I saw that they had at least three hundred types of plants and at least three hundred and fifty types of flowers. Back at home we have a flower garden and a vegetable garden and a few fig trees and banana trees also some lemon and apple or orange trees too! In the front yard we have some flowers and the plants or trees that we have are: a tiny cactus along with some strawberry and orange trees also some other types of plants!

P.S. Hope you liked my first post ever, please follow me! Thanks for your time!

Évasion

À l'annonce du couvre-feu aujourd'hui, j'ai eu besoin d'évasion et pour la première fois j'ai posté des observations que je n'ai photographié ni en France ni cette année. Ce sont quelques photos de plantes rapportées d'un voyage à Iguazú en janvier 2019. Si cela fausse un peu mes statistiques, je pourrai toujours utiliser des filtres pour retrouver mes observations de 2020. Au moins aurai-je remis un peu de couleur dans ma grille en ces temps de grisaille et de reconfinement.

New salamander law means Castroville/Highway 156 interchange can now move forward..

Highway 156 is a crucial thoroughfare for thousands of commuters, travelers and commercial trucks each day between the Monterey Peninsula and Highway 101, but the corridor is also crucial to a species on its own commute, the endangered Santa Cruz long-toed salamander. For years, any improvements to 156 – including a new and safer interchange at Castroville Boulevard – have been stalled as humans tried to figure out how to accommodate both highway and habitat.

Гербарий Магаданской области и сопредельных территорий

Институт биологических проблем Севера ДВО РАН (г. Магадан) вступил в консорциум Цифрового гербария МГУ

22 октября 2020 г. мы опубликовали на нашем портале изображения 258 образцов из фондов ИБПС ДВО РАН (MAG). Первая часть образцов включает род Callitriche.

Гербарий ИБПС ДВО РАН основан в 1970 г., состоит из коллекций сосудистых растений, грибов, лишайников и мохообразных. Гербарий сосудистых растений включает сборы сотрудников института с 1970 г., а также образцы более ранних лет (1940-1960 гг.), переданные из землеустроительной экспедиции, постоянно пополняется новыми сборами. В гербарии представлены образцы более 1700 видов сосудистых растений. Общее количество листов превышает 110000.

Большая часть коллекции представлена сборами из Магаданской области и сопредельных территорий – Приморья, Камчатки, Чукотки, Командорских о-вов и др. Сосудистые растения расположены по системе Энглера, родам присвоены номера по Dalla Torre, внутри родов – по алфавиту. Выдержан также географический принцип расположения. Электронный каталог гербарных этикеток существует для отдельных семейств и родов. С 2006 г. в каталог заносятся все новые сборы растений.

Среди оцифрованных образцов 45% происходят из Магаданской области, 22% с Чукотки, 18% с Камчатки, 10% из Якутии. Остальные образцы происходят из других регионов Сибири и Дальнего Востока. Работа по оцифровке ведется сотрудниками института О.А. Мочаловой и М.Г. Хоревой.

Постепенно изображения и других образцов магаданского гербария будут опубликованы в Цифровом гербарии МГУ.

Chestnut Hill Fall Nature Walk: 10/21/2020

On Wednesday, October 21 I went for a nature walk at the Chestnut Hill Reservoir. After completing my first nature walk at the Res earlier in September, it was fascinating to come back and observe how the passing of seasons has affected the biodiversity. For example, I maple tree I took a photo of was a textbook example of the gradient of foliage in the fall: leaves going from light green to deep red. I was also able to make an observation of a bee landing on an Indian Blanket flower. This made me think about what we learned this week about the success of the insect group. The example also made me wonder what bees who pollinate flowers do in the winter seasons.

Journal 2: Learning to field sketch

Location: Ravenna Park
Time: 4:00 pm
Date: October 21
Temperature: 52 F

The first thing I notice upon arriving at my site is silence. While I sat during my first visit, everything around me was alive. The wind caused the cedar trees above me to bristle and birds chirped ceaselessly. I wondered if the extreme weather conditions earlier in the day played a part in the sudden peace. I began to look towards the ferns I first documented last week. The one in the river, which appears to be a Lady Fern, seems to have grown out more and is now hunched over. It also seems to have lost some of its colors. Inhaling the air around the fern, it smells almost sweet and damp.
Distancing myself from the fern, I can smell the collection of wood that surrounds me and am engulfed by the crisp air resulting from the recent rain. I notice that there have been few changes to the tree directly above me from my last visit. I now know that, because the tree appears to be a Western Redcedar, it is in the genus of coniferous trees. I feel the leaves, which have a surprisingly soft texture and run my hand down the bark, which is a bit tougher than I expected.
The ground around me has continued to fill with loose pine and fallen branches. Sitting down on the ground, I dig into the floor and am able to find a few worms that have risen close to the surface. I notice how moist the dirt is today. The overall appearance of my site has no changed much. I think that, because the trees surrounding my selected location are coniferous, the area at large will remain similar. However, as you zone into the individual plants, the site will drastically change as the weather becomes cooler and rain more frequent.
I would also like to expand on some of the thoughts I addressed in my last journal entry. Nature is so often exploited by humans. I have loved the concept of getting to thoroughly explore an area of nature and document my experience through writing, pictures, and drawing however I have already begun to identify that true-peace may not be possible. My selected location is near the beaten path at Ravenna park and there have been several instances when I will be deep in focus, listening for birds or observing a plant, and am distracted by voices from the populated trail. This corresponds with my notion that many areas have become spoiled by humans. Despite Ravenna Park being an exceptional oasis from the urban areas that make up Seattle, it still is very touched and the presence of humans is constant. The feeling of escape is only temporary. Soon you walk back onto the path and past several others trying to accomplish the same mission.

October 21st, 2020

October 21st, 2020 (Wednesday) 9:00-10:30 am: no newts today!
Weather was nice. AQI was ok.
Other roadkills - a tiger moth caterpillar.
Coverage: north part - the county park parking lot till the second stop sign.
Traffic: 7 trucks, 17 cars, 1 motorcycle, 5 bikes, 27 pedestrians, and 45 cars parked by the road and in the parking lots.
County roads was repaving the road just north of the 2nd county park lot. Again, there were many trucks, pickups, and other large vehicles along the road (many of them with their engine on, again).
I did see the HT Harvey team today, but I saw at least 4 of the newly dug fences.
The rowing club was open. All county park parking lots were open.
There were very few hikers and fishermen on the road, but the 1st parking lot was busy as usual.

Stink Bug watch

Ameeds, who I'm sure you all know because he is our #1 Stink Bug identifier, just sent me this message:

"I wanted to ask you to keep an eye out for a stink bug that I think is newly arrived to southern California. I haven't seen any observations that make it quite as far north as your observations, but you're close enough to the area that they may still be around.

https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/317598-Pellaea

Previously, these guys only have US records in south Texas, but an expert that I talked to said that if anyone was able to collect physical specimens for him to arrange to have sent for examination and confirmation of identity, this would be a very interesting record and may be a species that requires closer study as a possibly harmful invasive.

The species may be associated with glossy privet, Ligustrum lucidum, https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/77740-Ligustrum-lucidum."

Just in case you come across it, and/or have Glossy Privets in your neighborhood. Laura?!

Для появления очередной 1000 наблюдений нашему сообществу потребовалось 85 дней (https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/vologda-oblast-flora/journal/38771-1000-nablyudeniy). Во многом, это заслуга Дмитрия Филиппова (@dmitriy_philippov), профессионального ботаника, примкнувшего к iNaturalist. Тем не менее, давайте отметим всех наблюдателей, кто загрузил за это время больше, чем два вида:
