Spring Coyote Behavior (March-June)

Springtime in the life of a coyote is defined by the birth of pups. Mating activity typically lasts from February through March, and new litters are born after a 9-week gestation period in April and May. The number of pups produced is generally dependent on available food resources and the surrounding coyote population, and in urban areas can average around 6 pups. Raising young is a team effort and the entire pack contributes to the success of a litter. More often than not, a coyote pac...

Coyotes in Winter (Nov-March)

It is not uncommon for coyote sightings to increase during the winter months in Wisconsin. In parks and natural areas, foliage is sparse so it may be easier to see coyotes moving throughout their environment. Although urban coyotes are primarily active during dawn and dusk in order to avoid human interactions, the winter season presents challenges to a coyote’s typical routine. Because their main food sources such as rodents and wild vegetation are harder to come by in winter, coyotes ma...

2024 City Nature Challenge in BPC Parks

The City Nature Challenge is an international effort for people to find and document plants and wildlife in cities across the globe. It’s a bioblitz-style competition where cities are in a friendly contest with each other to see who can make the most observations of nature, who can find the most species, and who can engage the most people.

Imagine! Every year, for four days, people in cities across the world join together!

Please join us! The 2024 City Nature Challenge i...

Elevation, Habitat and Distribution Maps for BC Dicranum Species

All data pulled from the Flora of North America Website/Database using their queries. Elevation data seems very wonky-- lots of sea level Dicranum not listed at sea level, lots of montane at sea level-- probably artifact of behaviour of entire species range (outside of BC, too).

Calling all 'moth-ers': This April please participate in the 2024 City Nature Challenge!

One doesn't have to wait until July and August to look for moths... Perhaps this year moth-ers and other insect fans can get out during the 4-day City Nature Challenge and record lots of observations. Perhaps set a goal to upload lots of photos and watch moths (and other insects) jump up the local species leaderboard!

С первых дней января в морозные солнечные дни начали петь лазоревки, большие синицы, чижи, зеленушки, снегири. У вОронов начались брачные парные полёты, дятлы пробовали дробить и кричать (желна).

Atlases

Observations represent the primary species distribution data recorded on iNaturalist, but they only represent presence data (e.g. they tell you where a species is, but not where it is not). iNaturalist also has "listed taxa" which indicate places where species occur (these may be manually created or automatically generated from observations). But listed taxa also cannot be relied upon to understand where a species does not occur because it's unclear how to interpret the a...

Des leviers d'actions utiles

Pour comprendre comment utiliser la biodiversité en milieu cultivé pour lutter contre les ravageurs et les maladies des légumes et éviter les apports d'intrants de synthèse, il est indispensable d'étudier les espèces observées. Cela prend un certain temps et se passe en pleine saison de travail, donc il n'est pas toujours facile de trouver un espace temps.
Mais l'effort consacré à ce type de recherche en vaut largement la peine.

New and Improved Missing Moss List for BC iNaturalist Observations

Earlier today I posted a list of mosses that are known from herbarium records but not yet observed in BC in the iNaturalist system. After some futzing around with query formats and synonymy and missing data, I have been able to pull habitat and elevation data from the Flora of North America project by querying Moss Species in BC. Some of the data is missing because it was never entered for FNA, but the pasted list below represents all the taxa that have yet to be photographed in BC in iN...

Grassland restoration begins at Godwin Ranch

February 25th, 2024 was one of the hottest February days on record in Central Texas, with a high of 86 degrees, but it did not discourage the sixteen volunteers from the Underground Texas Grotto who joined our first workday of the year. Four teams tackled different projects meant to restore the tract to its pre-ranching days. One group planted a native garden of forbes, grasses, and trees, another removed fill from one of the caves, a third team picked up trash along the fence line while...

Project FAQ:

Quick FAQ:

Question 3: I have an observation of a species with at least limited data, but I'm not sure if nothing has been research about it?

That's ok! As long as the species has little to no data it is fine. A good scale for a species can only be created with a large data pool!

Question 2: How do I know what species to add?

After checking various guides, websites, and discussing with other trackers about the species and you still can't find any ...

The rain was spitting but it certainly didn't dampen any spirits!

Insects were starting to stir and emerge in the warm rain, lichens and mosses were a bright green. We heard woodpeckers at work and not too far away, an early spring peeper starting to call!

Down by the water, a flock of returning blackbirds (Common Grackles, Red-winged Blackbirds) were creating ...

Sarcoptic Mange Doesn't Have to be a Death Sentence

Sarcoptic mange affects both domestic and wild animals. It is caused by the infestation of a mite in the skin and results in intense itchiness, hair thinning/loss, thickened/crusty skin, and scabbing. Secondary infections are also common. Afflicted animals suffer greatly, and if not treated, mange can lead to a slow, terrible death.

For various reasons, including a lack of respect for and understanding of our carnivores and the vital role they play in our ecosystems, mange was in...
