iNat in the news

The study has a couple of interesting notes. One line, in the conclusion caught my attention:

iNaturalist as a platform provides substantial value not only as a tool for researchers but as a place for community building and connecting with other naturalists as well.

It would be interesting to see studies on the sociology of iNaturalist. There’s a huge list of studies for studies which use data from iNaturalist (papers up to 2019 and papers from 2020 onward), but most are focused on data assessment, species and range documentation, and morphology.

Also, FYI, you might want to remove the tracking number (everything after the question mark) from the posted URL:
