Switzerland - iNaturalist World Tour

We're in Switzerland for the last day of Week 4 of the iNaturalist World Tour. Here, @jasonrgrant and @murielbendel, both botanists, stand out as top observers and top identifiers. Other top observers include @roby, @nicz, @ivanomarques, and @vaudoiseaux.


iNaturalist started growing in Switzerland in 2016. This coincides with when @jharlin at the Alpine Institute has used iNaturalist in several classes and events. The number of observations per month has ramped up in the last two years.


As mentioned above, botanists @jasonrgrant and @murielbendel are not only the top observers in Switzerland but also the top identifiers. @murielbendel leads in plant identifications. As in many European countries, @borisb leads in insect IDs and @ldacosta leads in bird IDs. Many thanks to other top IDers from Switzerland such as @horticultix, @arnaudbrahier, and @amc.


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

@jasonrgrant @murielbendel @roby @nicz @ivanomarques @vaudoiseaux @horticultix @arnaudbrahier @ldacosta @amc

We’ll be back tomorrow with Japan!

Thanks for this !
I think iNaturalist is an excellent tool to learn the names of different taxa from other groups we're not familiar with. I use iNaturalist in my courses at the University of Neuchatel, and we have also participated in John Harlin's efforts in Leysin. Otherwise it's fun to catalogue and learn about the local organisms.
