Observers have reported siphonophores and salps in Hong Kong waters. 香港水域最近發現了管水母及海樽的行蹤。

Both siphonophores and salps can be considered “gelatinous plankton” and are often lumped in with jellyfish in this broad category. Although these two can look similar, salps are actually tunicates, which have a primitive structure similar to a human backbone. Salps are individuals that can take advantage of environmental conditions to reproduce both sexually and asexually to create long chains spreading across large areas of the ocean. They filter particles from the water to eat and do ...

BioBlitz results!

Thanks everyone for joining our fall BioBlitz at Hellyer Park! And Happy Thanksgiving!
The continuous low water levels in Cottonwood Lake created a new habitat - mudflats - attracting shorebirds that are not often seen here. These include American Avocet, Least and Spotted Sandpiper, and Long-billed Dowitcher. In addition, we saw some of our usual pond birds such as American Coots, Canada Geese, and ducks - Mallards, Northern Shoveler, and Ruddy Ducks (winter visitors). The turtles...

Habitat-distinctions of plants with fleshy fruits in and near Fitzgerald River National Park, southwestern Western Australia

Various species of plants with fleshy fruits occur in/near Fitzgerald River National Park (FRNP, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fitzgerald_River_National_Park), in southwestern Australia.

The incidence of fleshy fruits, as opposed to other kinds of diaspores, may be related to the nutritional regime of the substrates in question.

In this Post, I summarise the pattern of habitat-prefer...

Hi everyone!

Thanks for joining the 2022 Inter-Island Bioblitz project!

Now that we are just over one week away, it would be fantastic if you could spread the word among your
friends, family, colleagues who might like to take part, by introducing them to iNaturalist and showing them how to join the project! The aim is to get as many people taking part as possible in all three countries!

Once they have joined this project, any photos they upload from noon-noo...

Rewilding in Ngau Tau Kok

Rewilding - the management of disturbed habitats to restore them as far as feasible to a 'wild' condition - is under way throughout Europe. Hong Kong would seem to offer limited scope for rewilding, but it is under way in an unlikely place - the East Kowloon suburb of Ngau Tau Kok. Like many of the precious few freshwater streams in the territory, the stream running through Jordan valley has been tamed by a concrete straitjacket. Without actually removing the concrete, a 'naturalization'...

Griffiths' Treatment of the Genera of Anthomyiidae in the Nearctic Region Part 3: The Pegoplata-Group

Griffiths covered this group in volumes 5-6 of his work, which were published in 1986 and 1987, respecitvely.

1. Genus Pegoplata

Griffiths' notes:
"The genus is the first of a group of genera included by Hennig (1976a: lxiii) in the "Nupedia-group" (here called Pegoplata-group in view of the synonymy of Nupedia with Pegoplata), characterized primarily by the modified structure of the distal section of the aedeagus (expanded, rather uniformly sclerotized without...

The Notanist's Guide to Understanding Floras and Dichotomous Keys

To be continually revised
Notanist: A portmandeau of "not" and "botanist." It means exactly what it sounds like it means.


Tip 1: Don't overwhelm yourself. Start small.

I would not recommend starting out with Flora of North America. There is often such a large amount of species that you will quickly be overwhelmed. Even US state-level might be too much, depending on how big or ecologically diverse aforementioned US state is.

A Visual Guide to Indian Lygaeinae Identification

work in progress; any attempt to build a key is hard, as no current exhaustive list of the species present in India is available; but still, I felt this might be of some use here, providing help for Milkweed Bugs (subfam. Lygaeinae) identification in India, perhaps helping to build such a reference list that will allow the eventual creation of a key. Only the most common species are featured here, I will complete with time.
