Notes From Nature Talk

Elevation Data Field

  • stewjack by stewjack

    From My last specimen !!!!

    COUNTRY: United States, STATE California, COUNTY: Mono, LOCALITY Crooked Creek

    If the elevation is given as Elevation 10,150' White Mts should I transcribe it as Elevation 10,150' White Mts OR just Elevation 10,150' ?? Can the elevation field contain more specific location data in addition to the elevation data

    My suggestion would be to list White Mts as part of the locality and list the elevation alone in its field.

    I would agree. The problem was that their were 2 "localities" Crooked Creek AND White Mts. I guess he parked his car at the Crooked Creek Field Station and hiked up to the White Mountains.
