NYBG EcoFlora Update June 2020

The June EcoQuest Challenge is MAKE THE CONNECTION

New Yorkers have documented over 370,000 plants, fungi and animals across all five boroughs of New York City and uploaded them here to iNaturalist. The program is designed to capture photos and information about individual specimens, but sometimes our photos catch insects visiting flowers.

Documenting these connections can reveal hidden life webs. These connections inform conservation efforts to protect native plants and animals.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Find observations with insects on flowers. Use the Observation field to record the connection. Type in “Interaction->Visited flower of”. In the drop down field, type in “Plants- Kingdom Plantae”.
