Kennis over bestuivers in Nederland. Wordt de bestaande kennis over bestuivende insecten gevonden door de mensen die het nodig hebben?

Kennis over bestuivers in Nederland

Sinds 2018 werkt het Ministerie van LNV met een aanzienlijk aantal maatschappelijke partners samen binnen de Nationale Bijenstrategie, met als doel dat bestuivers en hun bestuivingsdiensten in Nederland in het jaar 2030 duurzaa1n behouden en bevorderd moeten zijn.

De door de Bijenstrategiepartners ontwikkelde "Theory of Change" noemt kennisontwikkeling en kennisdeling als essentiële delen van de strategie om te garanderen dat de verschi...

Herbaria and welcome to the Northern Utah Flora Project

Welcome to the northern Utah flora project!

The main hope of this project is to connect botanists and the general public to herbaria in northern Utah together and to increase awareness of how rich our plant diversity is. Some might be asking "what is an herbarium" and the quick answer is that it is a museum of dried plant specimens that serve as vouchers during exploration/scientific research. For those interested in learning more about (or even visiting) herbaria, here are lin...

Exploring Lafferty with a Docent

I feel incredibly grateful and fortunate to join a LandPaths docent yesterday on his regular once-a-month check on numerous wildlife cameras at Lafferty Ranch. I have been to the property twice before: a year ago on a guided outing, probably led by this same docent to a vista point partway up the property (the common guided outings route), and several weeks ago on a private group outing with this docent during which I only got a short distance to the viewpoint as I was caring for a disab...

5/23 Observations Round-Up: World Bee Day!

This week we're celebrating World Bee Day! You may be most familiar with bees through the work of Apis mellifera, the European honeybee, but did you know California is home to over 1600 species of native bees? Native bees have co-evolved with our native plants to meet each other's needs. Pollen provides bees with the protein they need to help their young develop. Different pollens provide different amino acids, the building blocks of protein. Different bees need different amino acids, so...

What about NWA?

Hello ʚïɞ watchers!
I am appealing to anyone able to get out and make an extra effort in the northern half of the state. Last year there was a confirmed sighting in Elm Springs and Fayetteville near Dean Solomon. It is critical that we locate NWA populations since it is getting hit the hardest by fragmented habitat. Really anywhere that is North of the expected sightings such as in the river valley. They may be few and far between so please make the effort. I am only one pair of boot...

Well done to all of you for adding observations, you are doing a great job!

Please make sure you are adding accurate and good-quality data. Ask yourself the following questions
1) Can you easily see what is in the photo?

    A clear photo means someone might be able to help you ID it.

Viikko 21

Viikko 21 alkoi auringonpaisteella ja hyvällä mielellä, sillä edellisellä viikolla istuttamamme taimenet olivat lähteneet hyvään kasvuun!

Tällä viikolla istuttaminen jatkui ja olemmekin istuttaneet viimeisimpiä taimia puutarhaan, kuten tomaatit ja paprikat. Istutimme myös chilintaimen. Vielä odottelemme mansikoiden saapumista.

Kartoitimme myös sivarikeskuksen puutarhapenkkien kasveja ja kiinnitimme sivarikeskuksen alueelle tulevia opetuskylttejä. Suunnittelimme myös tulev...

Viikko 20

Projekti etenee! Viikko 20 alkoi auringonpaisteella. ☼

Tällä viikolla istutimme sisällä kasvatettuja taimia ulos, sekä suorakylvimme siemeniä. Leikkasimme kuivunutta järviruokoa kuivikkeeksi puutarhaan. Laitoimme myös puutarhaan opetuskylttejä. Pidimme myös kaksi puutarhan esittelyä.

Lämpötilat olivat edellis viikkoa korkeammat ja aurinkokin paistoi. Lämpötila kävi korkeimmillaan 25°C ja matalimmillaan 7°C.

Vaikka viikon projektipäivitys on lyhyt, oli viikko antoi...

Viikko 19

Työt jatkuvat! Puutarhaprojektin kolmas viikko alkoi kastelemalla edellisviikolla istutettuja siemeniä.

Viikon töitä oli siirtää sisällä kasvatetut taimet ulos puutarhaan kasvamaan. Keräsimme myös edellisvuoden järviruokoa Sivarikeskuksen rannoilta. Käytämme sitä puutarhassa kuivikkeena mullan päällä. Näin se estää esimerkiksi kasteluveden haihtumista.

Meille oli myös hommia sisätiloissa. Harvensimme taimia ja huolehdimme niiden kastelemisen. Teimme myös havaintoja iNatur...

New Sorrel Species and data.

As in many of our families, the Oxalidaceae in southern Africa have several undescribed species. The number is usually unknown because some turn out to be subspecies or varieties, and others odd forms of described species.

However, getting help with collecting, mapping and understanding undescribed species requires some tag to communicate these taxa amongst ourselves.
The projects on iNaturalist are:

These are usually documented via the p...
