Rough Guide to Atocion

Hey y'all! I've identified many Atocion armeria observations outside of Europe, but recently I wanted to give Europe and the Middle East a shot and learn more about the rest of the species in Atocion. I've compiled some info here for my own reference and just in case anybody else is interested. Please note that I am not an expert and this is not comprehensive, based on the information that I've found. It's likely that I will tweak some stuff as I see errors.

Trip to Smuggs

I went to Smugglers Notch Resort to go skiing on Feb 26 from 11am-3pm. I walked around the property from 12-1 when it was on and off flurrying, with a high of 35 degrees. I was on the outskirts of Mansfield State Park where there were paths to follow.
The Canada Geese were flying over head in a v formation, probably in search of their next rest stop or food source. They were honking in the process as if to tell each other which direction they should go and rely that information from...

First of March

It feels like spring is already here. I saw a cabbage white butterfly last week.

In the spring and summer, I work as the Pest Board Coordinator for Skagit County. I am looking forward to this time and I hope to put my results together in a way that is more accessible to people. Some of that may involve putting more observations on iNaturalist. There are also some services offered through Washington State University that would be a great way to share data.

I would also li...

Project Updates (03/01/2024)!

Spring is quickly approaching and mammal activity is really going to start picking up so I'm excited to see what people can find at the Quabbin over the next few months!

I have a few ideas for some moose population studies if anyone wants to message me and ask about them. Long story short, there are a few areas at Quabbin that I anticipate being popular spots and it would be interesting to figure out where the bulls are.

Have a great weekend!

Spotlight Species #1: Water Tupelo

Spotlight Species #1:
Water Tupelo (Nyssa aquatica)

What to Look For:
Water Tupelo have a buttressed trunk (wider at the base) with a symmetrical cone shape. They can be distinguished from Bald Cypress by their shiny deciduous leaves (cypress have needles).Their fruits are important food for swamp wildlife. They float on the water and release an oily sheen.

Where to Find It:
These trees can grow in aquatic conditions such as swam...

The Challenge begins today!

Hello and happy March to all current and future participants! Today (3/1/24) marks the beginning of the observation window for plants meeting our challenge requirements. To reiterate: your observation must be of a species from our plant list (which is built into this project), it must be observed between today and the end of July, it must be within Marin County (duh!), and it must have at least one photo. Throughout the year I will verify identifications.

Here's the plant list i...

Project Update - February 2024

February was another cold month (for the most part). We had blistering winds and a few inches of snow at times, but then we even had a few days of 50+ weather! The number of contributions to the Project was low, but that is to be expected with the weather conditions!

We did not add any new members to the Erie MetroParks iNaturalist Project, meaning we still have 43 members. If you know of anyone that may be interested, please direct them to our page!

Initial ideas

Welcome all,

I wanted to put out a post detailing some of what I intended to do with this project so that anyone could comment on the approach. Although there are some good references historically, I found that there is no one place where one can find relatively new information on the various Plectranthinae species.

I have laid out below an example of how I thought to go about things and which information to try and capture where available. One of my main interests is loo...
