Hi everyone. I have two questions, listed in bold at the bottom of the post.
I’ll give some context, before I ask the question.
I’m running a project which is essentially a one-person bioblitz of an island in Australia.
I often upload large numbers of observations of different individuals from the same species, because this helps me get an idea of the geographic distribution of the species.
To date, several experts have been quite active in identifying my observations. I’m very grateful for the contribution they make to the project.
However, one particular expert has become quite irate that many of my observations are of exactly the same common species. Eg, observations of the same species at 100 different locations (eg, 10 metre gaps between observations of the same species of mollusc)
1. Is there an iNaturalist guideline about whether it is acceptable to make observations of many different individuals, of the same species?
2. Is there a way that someone can submit an ID for multiple observations, all at once? (ie, is it possible to select 100 observations and identify them all as the same species, with just one click?)
