I am a graduate student at Lehigh University in the Biological Sciences PhD program, currently studying evolution. I love plants (especially trees) and iNat makes it easy to learn and identify many new species!

Check out some videos I made to help with your identifications:
Tree of Heaven vs native lookalikes -
Staghorn vs Smooth Sumac:
Tulip Trees (Genus Liriodendron):

Some misidentified observations. I'll add to this list whenever I come across them:

Shining Sumac:

Staghorn Sumac:

Smooth Sumac:


Walnuts (I think):

"The naturalist suffers a pleasant nuisance – not being able to walk 100 yards without being tied to the spot by some new and wondrous creature."
