How to link seed dispersal vectors and seeds based on iNaturalist observations?

Is there a way to categorize data on a separate page on iNaturalist so that we can see if non-native insects and animals have contributed to significant range extensions and mortality rates (how deep seeds are buried affects emergence) of plants, especially native plants?

Would people who like to examine feces please (if it is safe) attempt to discern what seeds are in scat?

I would suggest you set up a project for this. Choose which animal and plant species you want to track and either add these automatically with a collection project or manually with a ‘traditional’ project. You can create and use fields to track things like characteristics of scat, etc.

This might be partly addressed if interactions were handled better, so you might also like to add a vote to this feature request also (it’s currently in sixth place in the voting overall):
