In a paper I’m preparing which deals with the use of iNaturalist in natural history investigations, I make a generalized statement about iNaturalist as follows:
“iNaturalist.org stands out [among other citizen science platforms] for its breadth of coverage (all life), worldwide coverage, and it’s exponential growth (refs).”
I would like to fill in “refs” with some accessible, preferably peer-reviewed references which support my assertions. Can someone suggest one or a few foundational references to plug in here? I’ve been using Google Scholar to search for such backup material but its offerings are often taxon-specific or tangential to the point I am making.
Thanks in advance.
