Hi. I have been on iNat for a while now, but having no formal training and still often stumped by technical terms for IDing, I have general questions about how (in my case) plants work.
Although there is a world of information out there on internet, there is still stuff that is difficult to find, or that leaves doubts.
Would there be a case for opening up a forum category called something like education, in which we could ask questions of the community like, say, “How do you measure a petal” or “Do some plants recycle their parts as they do different things”?
Maybe it is understood that this is already covered in the general forum, by other sites, or that it is not part of the iNat mission, but I would have thought that the massive pool of knowledge of iNat participants would make it an ideal place for explicitly helping along beginners and not-so-beginners alike.
