Recently, we introduced a tool that allows users to quickly and easily track biodiversity in each of the 251 Vermont towns. Political boundaries are important to us, but what about ecological boundaries? Today, we are introducing the ability to track biodiversity findings in each of the 8 Vermont biophysical regions. You can access each region under Places or with the links listed here: http://www.inaturalist.org/places/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=Biophysical&commit=Search
The biophysical regions of Vermont help organize the landscape into smaller units that share features of climate, geology, topography, soils, natural communities, and human history. Although each region has variation within it, all are widely recognized as units that are more similar than they are different. See a map and learn more about each region (PDF).
