Notes From Nature Talk

Collector? Habitat?

  • gabeyld by gabeyld

    Is Robert F. Thorne the collector, or someone involved in keeping the archives, etc.? Does "along the river" count as the habitat or the location?

    Yes, Robert is the collector. At least, that's what I've been entering! I've seen several cards with his name. Several collectors have cards with pre-printed information.

    I have trouble separating the habitat from the location sometimes, but for ones like this, sometimes I enter "1 1/2 mile N of Newport" as the location, and "along Sinking Creek" as the habitat.
    Sometimes I enter Location as "Along Sinking Creek, 1 1/2 mile N of Newport" and leave habitat blank.

    Either way, the information from the card gets entered.
