Обновлены данные iNaturalist в GBIF: снова о лицензиях

Дорогие друзья!


Короткое резюме: если вы упомянуты в этом посте, то ваши наблюдения не имеют свободных лицензий. Пожалуйста, не оставляйте это сообщение без внимания и рассмотрите возможность поменять данный параметр в настройках профиля. Подробности ниже.


Сегодня (19.09.2021 г.) снова обновлены данные из iNaturalist в Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). В журнале недавно был пост о прошлом обновлении (ссылка), поэтому повторяться не будем. Отметим лишь, что среди участников проекта "Флора России" мы активно пропагандируем культуру открытых данных благодаря чему и обеспечивается взаимодействие iNaturalist и GBIF.

У некоторых активных наблюдателей флоры России до сих пор стоят лицензии, которые блокируют миграцию данных из iNaturalist в GBIF. Это связано с широким распространением приложений (iNaturalist и особенно Seek), в которых нельзя указывать лицензию. Сейчас жёсткими лицензиями заблокировано чуть больше 10% данных по флоре нашей страны (около 145-150 тыс. наблюдений), а это очень много! Фактически, этот массив сведений о растениях России, над которым трудились как наблюдатели, так и эксперты, не виден научному сообществу, которое берет данные именно из GBIF.

Выбор свободной лицензии стал особенно важен с апреля 2021 г., поскольку теперь хранение нелицензированных фотографий компания iNaturalist вынуждена покрывать из своего бюджета (смотрите русский перевод интервью Скота Лоари, со-директора iNaturalist).

В связи с тем, что настройка лицензии контролируется пользователями (и только пользователями), то единственное, что возможно сделать в этой ситуации - регулярно напоминать участникам о том, что:

  1. нужно зайти в личный кабинет на сайте (к сожалению, только на сайте, в приложении этой функции нет);
  2. в настройках учётной записи найти пятую вкладку ("Контент и отображение") и зайти в неё;
  3. в разделе "Лицензирование" стоит выбрать одну из свободных лицензий: No Copyright (CC0), Attribution (CC BY), and Attribution-NonCommercial (CC BY-NC);
  4. и, очень важно, не забудьте поставить галочку в разделе "Обновить существующие наблюдения новыми вариантами лицензий".

Всего ниже упомянуто 282 участника (три списка: европейская часть, крымско-кавказский регион, азиатская часть). За лето здесь появилось очень много новых имён, что не может не радовать. Надеюсь, просьба сообщества "Флора России" найдёт среди вас отклик. Подписывайтесь на наш проект, чтобы получать новости. Здесь уже 2226 подписчиков! Впрочем, мы приглашаем всех участников iNaturalist подписываться не только на проект МГУ "Флора России", но и на региональные страницы этого портала (список тут), на антипроект (бэклог) и "серую зону". В паспорте каждого наблюдения будет, таким образом, отражена как ссылка на общероссийский проект (в т.ч. ещё до определения или при съемке культурных растений), так и региональная принадлежность наблюдения. О том, что такое "серая зона", написано в специальном посте.

Juvenile masking in the dingo

(writing in progress)

In the dingo, most mature individuals have plain colouration with whitish around the mouth (https://www.shutterstock.com/nb/image-photo/close-dog-dingo-animal-zoo-mouth-1188179503 and https://www.shutterstock.com/nb/image-photo/dingo-sanctuary-melbourne-australis-1973462144 and https://www.alamy.com/portrait-of-dingo-dog-lupus-dingo-in-australia-image177730747.html and https://www.shutterstock.com/nb/image-photo/dingo-sanctuary-melbourne-australia-1976693408).

This pattern, standard in the dingo, is shared with all the wild species in the genus Canis:

Canis aureus https://www.istockphoto.com/photo/golden-jackal-close-up-portrait-gm1226896827-361639214

Canis anthus https://www.shutterstock.com/nb/image-photo/african-golden-wolf-canis-anthus-known-1256673595

Canis latrans https://www.flickr.com/photos/mattknoth/4841118345

Canis lupus https://lindaursin.net/wp-content/blogs.dir/26/files/2018/09/wolf-face.jpg

Canis simensis https://www.agefotostock.com/age/en/details-photo/ethiopian-wolf-canis-simensis-in-the-bale-mountains-national-park-the-ethiopian-wolf-is-the-rarest-of-the-wild-dogs-or-wolves-and-strictly-protected-the/X8C-1097123/1

However, what is odd about the dingo is that the colouration of the face in this, the standard colour-morph, goes through prolonged changes as the individual grows from birth to maturity. In other forms of Canis including most breeds of the domestic dog (Canis familiaris), such ontogenetic changes hardly occur.

In infants of the dingo there is a complex pattern in which the muzzle is largely dark but there are whitish marks on the lips and chin. This changes, in juveniles, to a less distinct pattern in which the muzzle remains somewhat dark. Adolescents retain traces of the darkness despite reaching sexual maturity, and it is only in full maturity that the whiteness is complete.

It is only in those domestic breeds most closely related to the dingo, such as the Shiba inu, that similar ontogenetic changes occur.

Why is the dingo unusual in this way?

One possible explanation hinges on the observation that the dingo depends partly on human affection (when infant) and tolerance (when juvenile) for its survival.

To the degree that the whitish facial pattern of mature canids is threatening, the masking of this during vulnerable stages of growth may tend to appease people in the various cultures tolerating the presence of the dingo (see my latest Post). More particularly in the case of Australia, the hand-rearing of infants in aboriginal camps may have been facilitated by infantile markings on the face. Indeed it may even be possible that such markings were somewhat selected for by the human species, in the sense that the infants most likely to be allowed to survive were those with the 'cutest' faces.

Overlooking the Ocean

September 17th, 2021.
I’m happy that it is finally friday, the weather seems nice and sunny outside. I feel like going out to get some fresh air or go for a walk along the beach. I’m still thinking about where to go and looking for nice places along the ocean to go to. I think I have finally decided to go to Devil’s Slide Trail, one of my favorite places that overlooks the sea and has beautiful green natural surroundings. It is 11:13am and I’m finally here at Devil’s Slide Trail, it took me a 15 minute drive to get here from home. The weather is beautiful here, not cold or hot, it's just perfect. It is very peaceful here and quiet. I feel like this is what I wanted: a peaceful place surrounded by nature with fresh air which gives some positive energy. It is 11:37am and I am walking up the trail and overlooking the ocean. I took a couple of pictures of the ocean and the plants as I was walking. I’m finally on the other side of the trail, sitting on the bench and overlooking the ocean. Nothing beats the feeling of sitting peacefully here surrounded by nature, it is just an amazing place to be at to clear my head and get rid of negativity. I’m looking at the ocean from above and I see dozens of birds flying down below and some of them are diving into the water. I think the birds are trying to catch some fish to eat, it is not very clear from up here to really see if they caught any fish. It is almost 1:00pm, I think it is time for me to head home, plus I’m starving. I’m finally in my car ready to go home. It was an amazing day and It was fun and relaxing to walk the Devil’s Slide Trail.

Journal for "Tree" Group Project

The observation that has been chosen for the first part of this journal is the European Horse-chestnut, also known as the Aesculus hippocastanum. In terms of phylogenetic placement, this tree is located in the kingdom Plantae, the phylum Tracheophyta, the class Magnoliopsida, the order Sapindales, the Hippocastanaceae family, and the genus Aesculus.

There is no common adaptation between all the observations in the project, but there is an adaptation that all the observed tree species in the project have in common, which is their broad leaves. One reason why they all have broad leaves is to be able to capture as much sunlight as they can for the tree so that more energy can be made.

One unique adaptation for one of my observations, the Red Maple (Acer rubrum), is its unique seed shape which is paired and lopsided (Amsel). This adaptation helps the seeds to travel farther distances in a helicopter-like motion and increase their chances of landing in sunny areas where they would be able to take root (Amsel).

Observing Biodiversity in Plants

The biodiversity of the plants located in Mount Royal Park becomes evident when observing all of their unique adaptations. An example of this is the great mullein, which in response to living in sunny regions, possesses the structural adaption of having hairy leaves. The hairs are used to reflect sunlight and allow for minimal air movement near the surface of the leaves, which results in less transpiration. Although no other plants observed have this trait, one adaptation that all of the plants share is having thin leaves. This is beneficial since there is a smaller distance needed for the diffusion of oxygen and carbon dioxide in and out of the leaves. Another interesting aspect to consider regarding these plants are their phylogeny placements. For example, the phylogenetic placement of the American elm, according to OneZoom, is as follows: Eukaryotes → Plants → Pentapetalae → Fabids → Elm family → American elm.

5th Anacostia River Bioblitz #AnacostiaBioblitz

We had an awesome day with over 40 people bioblitzing at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens! Kudos to the partners for helping us put up a great event.

The #anacostiabioblitz is already breaking records with 267 (app) observers, the highest number in its 5-year history, once again showing that the iNaturalist.org community in the DMV area is great. In total number of species it hasn’t surpassed 2020 but when looking at taxa the winners are reptiles with 7 species, fish with 25 species, mollusks with 16 species, arachnids with 21 species, and insects with 167 species. Tomorrow is the last day! #anacostiariver

For the River,

Jorge

Camryn's Journal Entry - Giant foxtail

In lab 1, one of the observations I made was of the species Giant foxtail (Setaria magna). This species belongs to the Plantae kingdom, in the grass family, sharing common ancestors with bristle grasses. One adaptation seen in this species are the spikelet clusters on the foxtail which are designed to keep animals away. This adaptation increases the chances of survival and reproduction within the species, ultimately improving fitness. Finally, all observed species in this project are perennial plants. This means that all observations shared the adaptation of maintaining fibrous roots in the soil throughout the winter, allowing them to regrow in the spring.

Adaptations of Insects In Their Habitat

Out of all of the observed insects, perhaps the insect with the most notable adaptation is the Rove Beetle (Oxyporus rufipennis). Many of the insects in the Rove beetle family have well-developed wings and can fly, but this particular type had a very small wings to body ratio and could barely fly. They have adapted to crawling rather than flying as it consumes less energy.

All the insects have an adaptation in common, and it is their distinct colour. All of them have a colour that favors them. The bright colours on some of the insects make it more intimidating and it helps with their camouflage.

Minsang Kim 261013104 Journal Entry

An adaptation which the honey locust possesses which my other observations do not have, is the characteristic of spikes on the branch. However an adaptation which all my observations share is the leaf's pigmentation of green during the summer season. Elms which are under the genus Ulmus, is in the long branch of plants and is in close phylogenetic proximity to the fig family and the buffalo thorn family.

Horse Chestnut - Aesculus hippocastanum

Horse chestnuts or aesculus hippocastanum are part of a genus referred to as aesculus which consists of 19 total aesculus species. Horse chestnuts are part of the hippocastanaceae family, the sapindales order, the magnoliopsida class, the magnoliophyta phylum, the spermatophyta superdivision, the tracheaobionta subkingdom, the plantae kingdom, the archeaplastida supergroup, and the eukarya domain. Our groups observed species is trees and as all trees on Mount Royal were imported from Europe and replanted here in Montreal the trees had to acclimatize to a foreign environment and more specifically one with very harsh winters. One specific adaption of horse chestnuts is providing support and protection for the embryo encased in its seeds. This can be clearly observed through the spines that coat the outside of the seed.

Et de 3333 espèces !

Une 3333ème espèce vient de s’ajouter à ma liste, et curieusement c’est une observation qui ne date pas d’aujourd’hui, mais de février 2020 et qui vient d’être modifiée par un autre identificateur. Cette plante est spontannée dans la haie du jardin. J’avais toujours cru qu’il s’agissait du faux houx Berberis aquifolium mais c’est en fait Berveris repens, le Mahonia rampant, reconnaissable à ses feuilles ternes alors qu’elles sont brillantes pour B. aquifolium. Comme quoi le nombre d’espèces observées ne dépend pas que de l’observateur, mais aussi de l’aide et de l’expertise de nombreux identificateurs.

Journal for Lab 3- Burdocks

I observed the Lesser Burdock, which is a vascular, eudicot, and also referred to as the Common Burdock among other names, however it is commonly known as 'burrs'. A vascular plant refers to plants that contain seeds, and a eudicot means that the plant flowers and produces two seed leaves during its germination process. The phylogeny of the Common Burdock occurred in North America, Europe and Asia. As a eudicot, the Lesser Burdock is classified under Eukaryotes branch of the OneZoom phylogeny tree.

All species observed in iNaturalist have a phylogenic history in both North America and Europe, highlighting the interconnectedness of flora between the two continents since the time of the European colonization of North American lands.

Burdocks have adapted uniquely to allow dispersal of their seeds. The hooked tips of the spiky points of the Burdock allow them to be easily caught on passing animals. The seeds will then travel with the animal, eventually falling off and releasing seeds, allowing the plant to grow in a new spot.

Phylogenetic placement

The American Beech is specified most broadly as an Eukaryote in the phylogenetic placement in one zoom. It has many classifications but the more specific are as follows: Eudicots -> Fabids -> Beech -> American Beech.

An adaptation of all gymnosperms found in this project is a waxy coating on their exposed leaves. These gymnosperms have this coating to prevent water loss so that they can keep their leaves through the winter season.

A unique adaptation of the American Beech tree is growth of dense foliage. This increases the American Beech's absorption of sunlight, as well as prevents smaller plants from growing underneath its leaves and absorbing nutrients.

Sebastian Moseres, Plants, White Snakeroot

While doing my iNaturalist observations during my first BIOL 111 lab on Tuesday September 14th, I took particular interest and curiosity in a plant that had clusters of small fuzzy white flower heads, and upon further inspection, and with the use of iNaturalist, I identified this plant as a white snakeroot. White Snakeroot, or Ageratina Altissima, is a species of perennial herb in the family Asteraceae. In terms of White Snakeroot's Phylogeny placement, using one zoom, I found that this plant traces back to the following order of species groups (from broadest to most specific: Eukaryotes, plants, Green plants, Land plants, Vascular plants, Seed plants, Flowering plants, Eudicots, Daisy family, and finally the Snakeroot group. For the adaptation that every observation in our group had in common I decided to focus on the dropping of leaves during the winter season of the year. Deciduous plants handle the lack of water that they receive during the winter months, they shed their leaves in order to to keep the leaves from wasting water through transpiration. For the White Snakeroot plant, the specific adaptation I noticed was the flower heads that it possessed. This serves as an adaptation to increase the reproductive efficiency of this plant, by drawing attention to itself for insects to come to the plant and distribute its pollen when they move on to the next plant.

Emma (observed flowering plants, prickly sow thistle)

The prickly sow thistle or the spiny sow thistle, is known as Sonchus asper and is descended from the subfamily Cichorioideae, which evolved from Eudicots, which come from Angiosperms (flowering plants). Angiosperms come from the larger family of plants, which are descended from eukaryotes, one of the domains of all life.

One unique adaptation of the prickly sow thistle and many other thistles is the prickles on the leaves. These prevent the plant from being eaten by herbivores (since they are painful to eat) and therefore increase survival.

An adaptation that all angiosperms have in common is seeds, which allow the plant to reproduce without creating competition with the parent plant. They are blown by wind, carried by water or animals and therefore naturally make their way away from the original plant, increasing the likelihood of survival for the entire species.

Katia Hnatiuk- Common Earthworm Phylogeny, Unique Adaptation and Adaptation between all observations.

The Common Earthworm (Lumbricus terrestris) is a very well adapted species, that is, it has adapted to living life underground! These organisms have bristly hairs on their body which allow them to grip the soil as they move through it. As well, earthworms have a "streamlined" body shape meaning they have no limbs or other features that get in the way of them being able to move smoothy through the ground. Lumbricus terrestris are found in a phylogeny under the Lumbricidae family and Lumbricus Linnaeus Genus. A common adaptation between all the organism observed in this study is that they have all adapted to live in a environment alongside one another. The insects and plants give back to one another and the other organisms in the environment through various metabolic processes.

Brenna Bordeniuk - Lab 1 Journal Entry

1) Using the phylogenetic tree from OneZoom, I chose to identify the placement of my observed walnut tree. The phylogenetic placement for my observation went as follows: eukaryote, viridiplantae, streptophyta, magnoliopsida, Fagales, Juglandaceae, Juglans.
2) One, very broad, adaptation that all our organisms exhibit is their ability to withstand relatively cold temperatures. The way each organism achieves this is unique to it and varies between physiological (photosynthesis), behavioural (burrowing/den building) and physical (root systems) means.
3) One of my observations was a small cluster of Riverbank Grapes. This particular plant has a unique ability to resist mildew and black rot on its foliage. Ultimately, this adaptation allows this organism to survive (by maintaining photosynthetic processes) during varying weather conditions in its habitat.

Journal for Lab 2

The phylogenetic placement for the Thicket Creeper (Parthenocissus Inserta) is in the kingdom Plantae; the clades Tracheophytes, Angiosperms, Eudicots, and Rosids; the order Vitales; the family Vitaceae; the genus Parthenocissus; and the species P. Inserta. Its sister species is the Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus Vitacea). A unique adaptation of the Thicket Creeper is its ability to climb and sprawl along the ground or up walls and other surfaces, allowing it to seek out areas with more nutrients and/or sunlight. An adaptation common to all of my observations is their green color. The green color of each plant's leaves denotes the presence of chlorophyll, a pigment that absorbs sunlight in order for the plant to generate its own energy by performing photosynthesis.

Hartley Goldfarb

The identified plant is basil. It’s domain is eukaryotic, kingdom of plants, class magnoliopsida, order Lamiales, and family lamiaceae. It branches off into the subfamily nepetoideae and genus ocimum. This continues on to 68 species of basil.

One adaptation that is present in the observations of organisms that photosynthesize is the waxy cuticle that covers the surface of the plant. This prevents the organisms from drying out due to evaporation and protects against radiation from UV light.

One adaptation that dandelions have are root hairs on the root of the plant. This increases the surface area of the root to absorb water and nutrients.

Hannah Grewal Plants around Montreal Observations

The Peonia Lactiflora, otherwise known as the white peony, is a perennial herb species. This herb was introduced in Europe then brought to England in the 18th century. This beautiful herb can also have multiple colour ranges. The topic of our project is “Plants around Montreal,” and when looking for different plants, and my group members identified them in similar areas. Based on where I found my plants, their root structure is one adaptation that they all have in common. These plants have had to adapt to growing in Montreal, where the weather is quite humid, the plants have figured out how to survive. Compared to all of the plants I observed, the Pale Jewelweed is the biggest. This weed can grow up to 2 meters in length.

Ft. Davis, Tx. and surrounding area...

I spent this past week in Ft. Davis.

I bounced between the Davis Mountains SP and the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center.

I enjoyed watching the birds at the State Park...Acorn Woodpeckers, Woodhouse's Scrub-Jays and one Summer Tanager to name a few.
The two bird blinds were active!

The plants were wonderful to view while hiking on the Nature Center Trails.

Looking forward to my next trip!

How It Works

Download the iNaturalist app and take pictures of any plant, tree, animal, insect, spider, reptile, etc. and identify it or make a suggestion as to what you think it is. You can also take pictures with a camera and upload them to the iNaturalist website!

New to using iNaturalist? Here is a quick how-to page on how to make observations as well as what needs to be included. https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/getting+started#observations
