October MN SEED Workshop with Urban Roots on Tuesday Oct 11th.

MNSEEDers again have the opportunity to learn more seed saving tricks from Urban Roots. Last year Dave Woods and the interns at Urban Roots shared ingenious power tool hacks and seed storage best practices. We can't wait to see what timely techniques they'll have this year! Bring your seeds and questions! Space is limited so sign up now at https://mshs.app.neoncrm.com/np/clients/mshs/event.js...

Про ключи

На Пикабу пишут:
Чем отличается Икеевская инструкция от отечественной?
Икеевская: "Штучка 1 (рисунок) + штучка 2 (рисунок) = чпок!"
Отечественная: "Центральную царгу установить в проушины поперечных перемычек и наживить болтами, используя шайбы, гроверы и гайки".

Ranges of species

Cryptomys
The 5Cryptomys species were previously regarded as a single species Cryptomys hottentotus, but have sufficient DNA differences to justify species status.
They can currently only be distinguished by DNA according to the fundies (although earlier taxonomists recognized them as subspecies before DNA techniques).
The are probably allopatric and can thus be identified by their locality, although specific limits still need to be determined.

General comments

The rabbitbrush is flowering again in the Albuquerque area, and I was able to get out to go nature hunting for the first time in several weeks. The most common species I saw on rabbitbrush were Painted Lady and Chauliognathus lewisi, with the latter being quite abundant and gregarious on certain individual plants. Lots of similar observations from NM are being added to the project, which is great to see. A big thanks to

First iNaturalist Nature Walk - Pine Tree Preserve/Chestnut Hill Reservoir

This afternoon, I went on a walk around the the Pine Tree Preserve and eventually walked around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir for the first time since I have arrived on campus. It was a very gloomy and slightly chilly day. The Pine Tree preserve was the most interesting path I've ever taken. Surprisingly, I saw a few Eastern Gray Squirrels sprinting across the green. I saw a few shrubs growing nearby the tree stomps. By the time I got to the reservoir, it was surrounded by trees that were...

First Nature Walk

For my nature walk, I travelled to Stoneham and walked on a trail that edges the Unicorn Golf Course. The trail was very scenic and wooded and I saw many different species of plants and animals along the way. On my walk the weather was slightly chilled, but still seasonal at about 60-65 degrees and partly cloudy. It was also pretty windy that day as well. Along the walk I saw various different types of plants (some of which I have linked to this post). In particular, I noticed that the r...

First iNaturalist Walk (9/29)

I took my walk in Houghton Garden with my friend Paige who is also in Eco/Evo. It was a very nice day out, sunny, but a little bit chilly. I saw lots of plants and the entire garden area was very green. There was also a small pond and small stream in the garden which was very nice. I saw a lot of squirrels and a couple chipmunks too. There were a few very cool flowers that added some color to the nature walk, and I also saw some mushrooms and some berries. There was also a cool rock form...

Osmia shortcuts

The obvious advantage of an interactive key is that just one character might get you close to an ID. You could diagnose Megachile pugnata or Halictus ligatus either by walking through a long set of traits--or get to species if you know about the projections from the cheek. A couple of Osmia shortcuts:

In DiscoverLife you use the "has" option in the menu, choosing Sparser centrally on frons, with stiff, thick, straight hairs above and below angled towards the center of the fro...

Reflection on Summer

I began to sense a slowdown in the woods about mid-July, a few weeks after the solstice. The avian chorus of spring was quieting; long songs giving way to short calls and chirps. The leaves on plants were showing signs of grazing and browsing as production gave way to consumption. Rainy days turned into afternoon thundershowers unable to maintain the water table; large vernal pools shrank and the small ones disappeared leaving only damp spots on the ground. All, a seeming prelude to fall...

Welcome to this project!

Located at 1200 Princess Street, in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, Heathfield is the present site of Providence Motherhouse, the home of the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul and two other religious congregations.

In the 1830s, a cottage-style villa was constructed on the site at what is now 1200 Princess Street. In 1852, the property was acquired by Charles Heath, and from this time on it was known to Kingston residents as Heathfield. Heath sold the property in 1865 to Pr...
