.* 10,370 observations (16%) dont have any Identifications at all
.* 3,544 observations (5%) have an ID above family level
.* 3,447 observations (5%) have an ID at Family or Tribe level
.* 10,082 observations (15%) have an ID at Genus level
.* 38,112 observations (58%) have an ID to species level

These are roughly as by state of identificaiton:
.* 10,370 observations (16%) dont have any Identifications at all
.* 7,187 observations (11%) are casual grade (planted/captive or missing information)
.* 24,508 observations (37%) have an ID but need it refined or confirmed.
.* 23,481 observations (36%) are Research Grade.

Action over the next 10 hours!

Group 1 (all, except Specialists). Clear the Observations with no identifications:
(and remember to fave and mark as planted - even if you skip them!

8,782 IDs needed: 10% of effort required

Group 2 (specialists and fundis). Get course IDs to Species level:
click here and in the "search species' box, enter your taxon (family, tribe, genus).
remember to "Agree" with correct IDs, and Fave

22,727 IDs needed: 60% of effort required

Group 3 (fundis and enthusiasts). Get species IDs to Research Grade:
click here and in the "search species' box, enter your taxon (family, tribe, genus).
remember to Fave and mark if cultivated
