Deadline Extension

Hey everyone!!
First off, I am really sorry about my long absence. This was a bad time to schedule the BioBlitz, as my family moved. I thought, "I can make observations in CT and in IN, and everywhere in between." I forgot, however, that internet takes a while to install! I am using a computer at my local library, but I currently have no way to add my 500+ observations, so I am extending the deadline by nine days to make it an even 30-day event. This will hopefully give us t...

Japanese Knotweed

Japanese Knotweed is an invasive species to the New England area. The species is native to China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. It was initially introduced to the UK (the 1820s) as an ornamental plant and then to North America (Late nineteenth century). The shub-like plant measures 3-9 feet high with reddish-colored stems. The leaves alternate on the stems and have red-colored veins. The shrub produces blooms in the late summer that are small and a more green white. When removing Knotweed, ...

电商有售但学者不认识的禾草 Paspalum mandiocanum

去年在公园刷草的时候拍到一种雀稗,在常用的图库和植物志里没查到能对应的种.后来通过澳洲的观察记录查到是Paspalum mandiocanum, 再转折查到国内的商品名"宽叶雀稗". 故事和资料参见https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/85868568 .

这几个月里,发现这个种是不少禾草研究者的坑, 例如 https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/95779061

May 15 - Painted Skimmers!

While we're waiting for Clubtails, take a moment to look at all the Painted Skimmers being reported.

We now have more Painted Skimmers in May that any month-of-May in the past. In May 2018 we recorded 65 Painted Skimmers for Ohio. We are now at 79 for May 2022 - and the month is only half over.

Painted Skimmers like a marshy habitat rather than open water, they're likely to perch for you, and make beautiful photos.

May 2022 is also having good numbers for Common G...

First Search for Samia Cynthia

Today, a friend and I were up in North Jersey for business unrelated to entomology, but an area known to me was on our way back. A little while ago, I read about Samia cynthia. A species of silkmoth introduced into Philadelphia to try creating a silk trade for ourselves in the US! Very interesting history about it, I highly recommend reading into it here: http://fi...

Observación responsable

ÉTICA: Hacemos hincapié en la ética al observar: todos los seres vivos deben ser observados en su ambiente sin ser molestados, atrapados o arrancados en el caso de las plantas. Captura la foto o el sonido, intenta que sea nítida y que muestre la totalidad de la especie, también puedes incluir más fotos si te parece que debes tomar algún detalle en particular que sea necesario para la identificación.

Temperature: 81 F
Winds: 4 mph

Temperatures are rising, many plants are now going to seed, such as the Gilia brecciarum, seeds were photographed for the observation on may 14. Although some plants are going to seed there are still examples of the flowers on some of the plants. Phacelia fremontii is still in bloom although some have gone to seed. A Phacelia brachyloba has been seen this year near to the Piñon Pathway trail, the second observation in two years in the park. An ...

O zielonym świetle

W lasach liściastych zmienił się kolor światła. W słoneczny dzień światło dociera przefiltrowane przez wiele warstw młodych liści. Zmienia się zakres widma, który dociera do dna lasu.
Zwykle nie zdajemy sobie sprawy z takich niuansów. Nasz wzrok funkcjonuje biegle w różnych warunkach oświetleniowych. A właściwie to nasze mózgi zapewniają korekcję barwną. Łatwo się o tym przekonać, gdy czytamy wieczorem książkę przy ciepłej, żółtawej żarówce. Kartki nadal „widzimy” jako białe (oczy wi...
