I routinely use groupings of regions, like there is one “Northeastern United States and Canada” that I find super useful:
when choosing where to do ID’s, because some species I am more familiar with in some regions than others, and I don’t want to go too far out of my comfort zone because there are other species to check against.
I love this region grouping feature, but I don’t know where to find a listing of all the species, nor if there is a way to add or create new features. Basically I want to find a “Region” section of the site where I can learn everything there is about these regions and what ones exist and what they mean, etc.
One thing I would really love is to be able to search and browse things by ecoregion rather than by groupings of countries and/or states. I do a lot of work using the US EPA / CEC ecoregions which cover all of North America, and there are also WWF ecoregions globally. I notice many of the Level 4 ecoregions are already imported into the site, but I can’t find the Level 3 ones.
I also am curious if there is a hierarchy of regions, like if there is any sort of nested organization like Parent Region > More Detail > Even More Detail etc, and a way to browse regions like this. I would find this really useful, whether it’s states and counties and such, or ecoregions or ecozones/provinces (as Canada calls them) or other arbitrary groupings.
And is there even a “master page” for each region? Like there is for each taxon? I would really like this…and if it exists it is hardly clear how to access it.
