April 12th Update

Clarifying what all is still needed for the Project....which is mostly for me to get off my ass and get more observations, because I am the one furthest behind. That said, here is what we still need:

Aquatic Microscopic Observations: Currently have 2, need 8 more. Note: The rotifer specimen doesn't count towards this as these all need to be protists.

Insect Observations: We need two more orders of insects represented in our observations. We currently have species from the Orders Hymenoptera (Ants, Bees, Wasps), Lepidoptera (Butterflies, Moths), Orthoptera (Crickets), and Blattodea (Cockroaches, Termites). Other orders to look for is Coleoptera (Beetles), Diptera (Flies), Hemiptera (Cicadas, Aphids) and Odonata (Dragonflies).

All other groups meet the number and diversity requirements and we have met the overall number of research grade observations. The only other thing we might want to do is make sure to have descriptions/notes on our observations.

Post-Spring Break Update

At least 10 observations must be of aquatic microscopic organisms. (must have representatives of two different supergroups) - Need 8 more observations and one more supergroup represented
At least 20 observations must be of plants (must have representatives of 3 different phyla) - DONE, but need more research grade if possible.
At least 5 observations must be of fungi. (must have representatives of two different groups) - DONE, but need more research grade if possible
At least 15 observations must be of invertebrates. (must have representatives of 3 different phyla) - Need 7 more observations and one more phyla represented - probably one of the worm phyla is easiest)
At least 10 observations must be of vertebrates. (must have representatives of 3 different phyla) - DONE

Main things we need are more aquatic microscopic and invertebrate observations.
