Published papers that use iNaturalist data - wiki

The aim of this wiki is to provide a user-curated list of scientific publications that use iNaturalist data (from this discussion. Please add to it, 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.

This is 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.

Thanks, @deboas. I’ve been meaning to start a wiki like this. There’s also this spreadsheet that has captured some publications. If anyone wants to start adding them to the wiki, go for it. I know I won’t be able to get to it today but wanted to get the link in here since it has some useful information.

2 posts were split to a new topic: Other sites like iNaturalist spreadsheet

I’ve started to add these, and for now the list is in alphabetical order by author. Please holler in these comments as the list grows if you would prefer to arrange it by year or some other system. Where there are discoveries without a publication yet, I haven’t included them.

I’ve now updated the publication list with everything from the spreadsheet (except those that have not yet resulted in a publication). I had to remove the user tags as it’s only possible to tag up to 10 users in one post, so it didn’t make sense to have some users tagged and others not. I also reorganised by year, as the list was starting to get quite long - this makes it easier to see the most recent articles.

There are many papers to add from 2019 alone, found simply by searching “iNaturalist” in Google Scholar. Some are based on individual observations, such as first records or rediscoveries in a state or country (e.g. Jain et al., 2019. Rediscovery of the orange gull butterfly, Cepora iudith malaya, in Singapore, and Van der Heyden, 2019. First record of Leptoglossus occidentalis Heidemann (Heteroptera: Coreidae: Coreinae: Anisoscelini) in Costa Rica), while others glean trends from bulk analysis of observations (e.g. Rowley et al. 2019. FrogID: CItIzen ScientIsts Provide validated Biodiversity Data on Frogs of Australia, which notes “6% of the 892 photographic submissions of frogs from Australia in 2017 submitted to iNaturalist showed frogs being handled with bare hands” and “only 5%… of the submissions from Australia [were] identified to species in iNaturalist in 2017”). From casual browsing it looks like some iNaturalist observers are co-authors on papers, which is very nice. I think there’s a discussion to be had regarding the strengths and weaknesses of publishing based on citizen science photographs alone, and other ethical considerations, but I’ll leave that to a different time and place.

Great, thanks for that. I have added those three publications to the list. Feel free to add others if you have time and inclination, and/or to start a thread on the strengths and weaknesses of publishing based on photos - could be an interesting discussion!

Greetings y’all,

I am interested in this forum as I will soon be presenting (2019 World Congress of Malacology) and subsequently publishing a paper on the Molluscan Mycophagy project.

Please add our rediscovery of Anadenulus paper to this list that used iNaturalist data (send me a message for a PDF):

@deboas, in the first sentence of this forum you have “this discussion” written, and the text is blue, but there doesn’t appear to be a link associated with it. I would like to see that link. Perhaps it was closed after months of inactivity?

Hi Torsten,

Brilliant, thank you! I have added these to the wiki. It should be editable by anyone, so please feel free to make any needed changes. If you have time to add links to the articles and relevant observations, even better.

Hello there,
So I use iNaturalist and have co-authores a small paper with fellow Malte whom I got into iNaturalist. You can access the paper here. So the first ever photographs of living Nososticta impercepta were posted on iNat, that was reported on the paper along with several other records. Malte Seehausen (@mwnhseehausen) started using iNaturalist and since them I have managed to photograph the first living Indolestes lafaeci (some weeks ago) and I’m positive we will eventually publish an updated list with the species we have recorded in Timor-Leste since our first paper.

Thanks Rui! I added your paper and link to the list. You should be able to edit the wiki if you need to add or correct anything, or add any future publications.

I’m not sure how to format this for the wiki, but the Canadian Food Inspection Agency referenced an iNat blog post in documenting a new (invasive) moth for North America:
