Notes From Nature Talk
both a typed and pencil number on this.
species obscured by specimen
#typo possibly that should be Susan Carr
year is 198? I've put that as Not shown
#incomplete so I can't see anything relevant here.
#scientist This has two Dets, both from ii-1990, so I've put both separated by a comma
sheet 1 of 2.
Ah, yes, good point.
That's what I do, following the FAQ:
#error I've put Ludwigia for Luwigia
I've assumed that 'Henderson 2010' is collector and year.
#handwriting In the left hand corner, illegible word.
I think this is Suffolk, Virginia.
Yes, but if someone wanted to separate the collectors in an automated fashion, I guess it would help to use commas only between persons.
ditto on greeeenhouse
The FAQ says that names are separated by commas. What then should go in front of "Jr." ?
But my guess is the joke, if there is one, is that all those are unlikely to be growing together.
I'm not a botanist (& I expect you have to be to find it funny).
Maybe Mr Kevvy would know if the list's odd.
BTW, it's a sedge, not a grass
b) That's a very long list of associated plants for a pine plantation, including magnolia, elm, sugar maple, passionflower, yucca,
maybe I'm wrong but a) usually the specimen would be identified with both parts of it's scientific name ie cyperus esculentus, or something
Looking at the list of species in this 'highly degraded original flora' this looks v suspicious like an april fool to me.
Everything identified apart from the specimen in question. And this on April fool's day...
#error I've put Historical instead of Hiastorical
ditto to Mr Kevvy
#error ditto to Mr Kevvy. Also I put an apostrophe in Shoney's
I'm not sure what was poisoned!
#unclear the collector number has been overtyped, and I'm not sure what it should be
#error I'm guessing that should be 'edge' of stream
#error changed pensylvanica to pennsylvanica
#error The latest det seems only to misspell the original georgiana
#handwriting. I've guessed the name as Juncus coriaceus but may well be wrong
#error I've put 1978 instead of 1878 as the year, since "NW4 Sect. 26" looks very like late 20th C location text
#error I've changed serptentaria to serpentaria
There's no identification, or location or date. and I'm not sure if that's 19024 or 79024
#unclear I have no idea what "P.O. Pope" is referring to.
#error I've corrected altantica to atlantica
great label ! Says it all about the collection species I think.
I've come across a few like this, where an ! is appended by a later botanist. Anyone know what that is short hand for?
#error I've put erythrorhizos instead of erythrohizos which is on the label.
#error I've put 'bridges' instead of 'brides'
#unclear I think that's number 2539, but the 9 is very faint
#scientist not sure what to do with location etc for greenhouse specimens.
#error I put year as 1983 instead of 1883
Rather cryptic (to me at least) note that the collector "worked in a fire cache"
#query not sure if that "is" on the far left is the part of the collectors name or not. (ie K. Tessinis ?)
I think it says Cyperus filicinus
I'm not sure what should have been done with "Pollen voucher #8"
#unclear I'm not sure about the collector number which I've assumed is the handwritten ?"2-I"
#error autummanlis corrected to autumnalis
so this might be collected by R. K. Godfrey, no 59388
I also corrected autumnalis
#error I changed Querus to Quercus, and Sphaghum to Sphagnum.
#query not sure if "chromosome voucher #1" should have gone somewhere.
#location I've interpolated the county from the region
#unclear Is that 3 collector numbers?
practically nothing apart from name!
#error I've assumed Arkansas, as there is a Panther Forest there.
#query I think the extra label is for info, rather than providing an updated scientific name
What to do with "Little Duck River" is that Habitat, Location, or both?
#error should that be "moist" peaty-sandy soil?
#typo should that be Impact, not Imopact?
This had two scientific names.
