Tribute to BJ Stacey, iNaturalist user 'Finatic'

Nature has lost a great ally. BJ Stacey (iNaturalist user: Finatic) passed away on Feb. 24th after a long battle with cancer. BJ was a prolific contributor to the SLIME project and documented 39 species of native, rare, and introduced taxa. He made an astonishing 105,027 iNaturalist observations and nearly as many identifications. BJ was a tremendously knowledgeable field biologist and a kind and generous colleague. His documentation of biodiversity will enable a better understanding of Southern California biota for many decades to come. BJ will be fondly remembered and profoundly missed.
