I am a graduate student at Kent State University and I’m interested in researching reporting trends in insect citizen science data.
When people report observations to citizen science databases, they must make decisions about what (and whether) they will submit as data. The choices people make about what is most important can affect the patterns that are recorded with citizen science approaches. This could have significant implications for conservation efforts for some insects, which frequently utilize citizen science observations in determining the presence and/or absence of certain species.
This survey aims to investigate how people’s perceptions of insects, or wildlife in general, with varying physical characteristics may influence reported data.
