New Year, New Resolutions, and the Lichens and Moss of Ohio

So here we are in 2018. Somehow we survived 2017, as a planet, but I still feel a compulsion to document the organisms around us.

Having reached 20,000 iNat observations, I want to continue to pick up this pace, and reach 30,000 by the end of the year. That only amounts to 30/day: eminently doable, if exhausting.

I will also strive to write more journal entries. Some may be specific to projects in which I have some role. But I observe many more things daily than I ever record, and so some of that knowledge is lost to me if I don't write it down.

For instance, this morning I found an excellent resource for Ohio lichenology - http://ohiomosslichen.org/.
I found it through this entertaining romp through a lichen key - http://bobklips.com/latemarch2009.html
I also learned that lichens have emerged many separate times, evolutionarily.

My other resolution will be in my next journal entry - to take walks with many of you, my dear iNaturalist friends! Convivial BioBlitzes, I'll call them.

The earth did survive 2017. Now let’s document EVERY ORGANISM that is surviving 2018. ;)
