Quick Notes from Nature Summer Update!
An update from here at Notes from Nature Headquarters:
1) To all you devoted CalBug transcribers, we are rapidly winding down a MASSIVE (and impressive effort) that has yielded over 500,000 transcriptions and 90,000 completed imaged specimens. We have just 700 images to go! If you can help us make a push to get those done, we are busy assembling what we are calling CalBug Missions – more focused efforts on particular groups and regions (we’ll be unveiling wood-boring beetles (!) when we finish those 700 images). More on that VERY soon!
2) In the “persistence pays off category”, if you to go to the Macrofungi collections, you’ll see that we have implemented a simple PAN/ZOOM (the same used by the Herbarium interface) for locating the label, instead of the clunky old “draw a box around the label” mechanism. We think this is a big improvement and will make you all faster/better/awesomer transcribers. Let us know what you think. PROGRESS!
Wood boring beetles – NOT BORING
