Published papers that use iNaturalist data - wiki 4 (2024)

This is a fourth wiki for providing a user-curated list of scientific publications that use iNaturalist data, covering the year 2024. For previous wikis see:

Publications in 2010–2019
Publications in 2020–2021
Publications in 2022–2023

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 alphabetical order by first author. These multiple wikis have been created, rather than just one, because of word limits for a single post.

These wikis are intended to complement the list of 3000+ journal articles that cite GBIF data including iNaturalist exports (summary of citations of all kinds here) so papers already on that list need not be included here.

Has the number of such publications really grown as exponentially as this suggests? One wiki for the first ten years, then each subsequent wiki for only two years.

yes, without question

We started the first wiki in 2019. The earliest paper on there is actually from 2013, but I put 2010 in the list because it would be good to have any publications that go back to the beginning of iNat, which actually has its origins in 2008. So you could say it’s for the first seven years, not ten, but perhaps someone will come up with an earlier publication.

Things really took off around 2020, and we hit the word count limit for the first wiki. If you follow the GBIF links you can see a graph of the numbers of publications citing the iNat data in GBIF per year, and while not quite exponential at this point, it shows a dramatic increase over the past decade.

Adding a comment in part to keep this active, and I added this to the wiki. We used 87 records iNat in our paper mapping the historic distribution of swamp eels in Florida
