Published papers that use iNaturalist data - wiki 2 (2020 and 2021)

This is a second wiki for providing a user-curated list of scientific publications that use iNaturalist data, covering the years 2020 and 2021. We reached the character limit with the first wiki which covers the period up to 2019, and have now reached the character limit with this one too, so have started a third wiki for 2022-2023, and now a fourth for 2024. There should still be space to add any additional older publications to the earlier wikis where appropriate.

Please add relevant publications, including, where possible (1) a link to the paper itself, (2) a link to the observation filter that encompasses as closely as possible what was used by the paper, and (3) contact details for the author(s) in cases where the paper is not open access. There is no need to additionally comment that you have added a paper.

Articles are organised in sections for each year, and then in alphabetical order within year.

These wikis are intended to complement the list of papers that cite GBIF data including iNaturalist exports so papers already on that list need not be included here.

Through 2019 that was 114 records.

Thank you for this, and the extra context. I added the publication to the list.

Thanks. I removed the preprint and added the final paper.

Any user is free to edit the wiki, so please do add further papers or details as needed.

@deboas, can you clarify the above? Should this list strictly exclude papers on the GBIF list? It’s kind of nice to have them here anyway in my opinion.

Hi @andy71 I don’t see any great problem in adding those papers, if you wish to do so. I simply highlighted that they had already been captured elsewhere, so it didn’t seem necessary to spend a lot of effort to add them here too. Also, in some (many?) of those GBIF papers, they might not even mention that iNaturalist is one of the multiple sources of data, so the wiki captures something a bit different (and of course, includes the many papers that don’t make use of GBIF at all).

I would say it is worth adding to the list, yes! Thanks, @lera!

By my count, 156 so far including the previous post of publications up to 2019. Very cool. (Numbering these or having them all in an up to date spreadsheet would be nice though, it’s a bit of a pain to count, and I think it’d be great if people could easily lookup how many publications iNaturalist has been used in.)


Good idea, Kyle, and thanks for counting them up - it’s an impressive total already! Please feel free to build a spreadsheet, and/or to add numbering to the list. The main challenges with a spreadsheet would be updating consistently in both places, and with numbering we’d have to renumber when new references are added in the middle of the list, but it’s a good idea. Perhaps numbering within each year and presenting the total for each year would make this easier to keep track of?

Note that @carrieseltzer has created a spreadsheet with noteworthy iNaturalist discoveries and applications, although that is a bit different from what you are suggesting here.


Just added a paper, and it seems the max. character count has been reached again


Time for wiki 3.
A good problem to have. :slightly_smiling_face:
