** Please note**
For convenience, I’ve edited this original post to incorporate the excellent suggestions which followed afterwards.
I’d like the ability to make it clear that I’m identifying a carcus or skeleton for identification purposes.
This could be achieved by adding the following options to the existing Stage of Life list:
- Adult, Juvenile, “Dead”, or “Uncertain”.
I’d also like the ability to make it clear that I’m identifying a snake skin, animal tracks, an empty chrysalis, faeces or feathers.
Thus, for situations where a user selects either “Dead” or “Unknown”, an additional drop down list of options could be made available to the user.
This new list could allow the user to specify whether the organism:
a) ** “Was present at the moment”, or “Had evidence of past presence”**
If the user selects “Had evidence of past presence”, another drop down list could be made available, allowing the user to broadly specify which type of evidence the organism had left behind, ie:
b) ** “Tracks”, “Excrement”, “Hair”, “Feathers”, “Skin”, “Tracks”, “Faeces”, “Shells”, “Nest/mound”, “scratch/teeth marks”.**
