Crowd-sourced science sheds light on how new species form across space and time

A PR plug for iNaturalist and some great coverage for entomological work from the University of British Columbia :slightly_smiling_face:!

“Thanks to backyard observers, we could access thousands of observations across North America from the comfort of our homes to begin investigating speciation on a large geographic scale.”


This is amazing! I love this. And how wonderful to see that even logging photos of a species as common as the fall webworm moth can be useful to researchers.


Love it! Thanks for sharing. Happy to have contributed one observation to the 7000+ that were used in this research.
