May 19-26 Observations

Today I went on a hike at the Thornewood Preserve. This is 6.5 miles away from my house, so I was excited to see tree's in this new environment. Once I got there, I went straight to the hiking trail and found that a lot of the trees were the same. The tree's in this environment however seemed to grow taller than the trees at Puglas Ridge. While I was there I noticed a lot of oak trees, but I also found some new plants such as the broad-leaved paperbark and the Roses. There were also lots of flowering plants. The trees were easily accessible, and I could find the trees right off the hiking trail. I would describe this community as a woodland plant community. The geography around the hiking trail was very hilly.

Week 7 Plants

I found these plants on the outskirts of a reservoir. It was fairly near my house. The species around this area are a fairly similar color. The specifies seem to be domestic to the land and not planted. The area biome would potentially be a woodland. The biome was park-like and disturbed.

Okefenokee Fetterbush will make you stagger and shout!

In the spring, the Okefenokee Swamp shrubbery is decorated with delicate rows of tiny, pinkish-white bells. These small flowers are of the Lyonia lucida bush. Although they look and smell like a sweet Valentine’s Day treat, they haven’t always been thought of so fondly, as revealed by a few of their common names: fetterbush, staggerbush and hurrah bush.

iNat observation:

Fetterbush grows thickly and is often entangled with other shrubs and vines, such as the well-armed greenbrier. Being so thick, it fetters the legs of anyone attempting cross the swamp on foot. Fetters were prisoners’ iron shackles in a less politically correct age. In fact, when his weakness was exploited, the Biblical strongman Samson was “bound in fetters of brass to grind in the prison house.” Lyonia’s other common name, Hurrah bush, comes from the exclamatory shout for joy made by the swamp adventurer that finally makes it through the thickets and staggers into a clearing.

Garden Journal May 2020

Great tits nesting in the sparrow box are finding much of their insect prey in the garden itself, really cool to see the garden provides a significant amount of natural prey.

Bumblebees are visiting the flowering bramble and wolves milk in great numbers.

Saw a hedgehog in the garden for the first time!

Mia Teague Natural Area Observations Week 7

This week, I visited the Live Oak Manor Park in Los Gatos, California. This park was about a 10 minute drive from my house and I do not go there very often, so I was not very familiar with the area. There were no hills in the area, everything was on flat ground. Due to the hot weather the park was also fairly dry and was definitely not a riparian area. There is a very large grass area in the middle of the park and I walked along the perimeter of the grass area where there is more dirt and shrubs.

Kevätleinikit on yhteisnimi kokonaiselle leinikkien ryhmälle (joka on yksi neljästä toukoleinikkiryhmän (R. auricomus s. lat.) alaryhmästä). Kevätleinikit voivat aloittaa kukintansa jo huhtikuun lopulla ja kukinnan huippu on touko-kesäkuun taitteessa. Kukan teriö on usein epämuodostunut: vain pari–kolme terälehdistä on normaaleja, loput enemmän tai vähemmän surkastuneita – joskus kukka ei näytä aukenevan ollenkaan. Kasvin kukinta on selvästi vaatimattomamman näköinen kuin esimerkiksi pari viikkoa myöhemmin kukintansa aloittavalla niittyleinikillä (R. acris).

Vaikka hyönteiset levittäisivät kevätleikin siitepölyä kukasta toiseen, se ei ole hedelmöityskykyistä. Siemenaihe kehittyy apomiktisesti, hedelmöittymättömästä munasolusta siemeneksi, jolloin jälkeläisten perimä on täsmälleen sama kuin emokasvilla. Jokainen emokasvissa tapahtuva perintötekijöiden muutos, mutaatio, periytyy myös jälkeläisiin sellaisenaan. Näin on syntynyt runsaasti toisistaan varsin vähän eroavia pikkulajeja, jotka kuitenkin pysyvät erillisinä. Monet pikkulajit esiintyvät vain pienellä alueella ja samalla alueella esiintyvät kevätleinikit voivat olla varsin erinäköisiä. Kevätleinikki on yhteisnimi hyvin monimuotoiselle ryhmälle, jonka edustajia meillä kasvaa ainakin 200, ellei peräti 300 pikkulajia.

Community in My Yard - and more musings on butterflies!

I've been trying to observe my yard through a "communities" lens this past week. I've definitely noticed how important the plant life is to the organisms that live in or visit my yard, and how we as humans are ecosystem engineers in our own yards. For example, my lawn was teeming with visual insect life last week, including tiny American Coppers, Eastern-Tailed Blues, and Cabbage Whites. That is, until my husband decided to mow the lawn, cutting down a good amount of the flowers growing wild there. After that, the littlest butterflies haven't made an appearance, their tiny lawn flowers are gone, and all that's been around are the Cabbage Whites and the Eastern Black Swallowtails (both there for the larger flower nectar sources in my garden and to lay eggs on their host plants currently growing there). It really brought home how even little routine acts that we don't think much of can have a huge impact on the habitats of other organisms, and affect what will live, thrive, and survive there.

Another thing I noticed, also still watching the butterflies in my yard, is that all of the Eastern Black Swallowtails that have emerged from chrysalises under my care in my garden have been males (15 out of the 20 so far). There are females in the area, I've seen them in my yard, and I have their eggs on my fennel as evidence. This made me wonder what sort of abiotic or biotic factors affect whether a caterpillar becomes a male or a female butterfly, and I'd like to research that further. My first thought was perhaps temperature or light, but I'm not sure that either of those factor into gender ratios. More reading up on actual studies as opposed to anecdotal evidence will be needed!

One other thought while I was observing the Eastern Black Swallowtails laying eggs on my fennel involved species interactions. I was trying to decide how to categorize the interactions between them and their host plants (fennel in this case), and at first I was thinking it was mutualism. I began to think back though, and realized that I never really saw any Swallowtails or other larger butterflies on the flowers of the fennel last year. I recall seeing lots of smaller insects nectaring on and pollinating the fennel, including lots of bees, wasps, flies, and Coppers, but definitely none of the Swallowtails. Perhaps their relationship with the fennel is more one-sided, and even considered parasitism?

New Panaspis in Ethiopia

Previously considered as Panaspis wahlbergi sensu lato, this species is known from the Oromia Region in western Ethiopia (and may also be present in central Ethiopia). This species can be distinguished from other Panaspis by the following characters:
"eye in the “ablepharine” condition; scales in 24 rows at the midbody; adult coloration of light-colored upper labials lacking round black spots; coppery dorsum flecked with black, separated from dark brown or black lateral coloration by a single row of light-colored scales; and a coppery bronze tail."

10 000!

Прогнозы на быстрое получение ещё одной тысячи наблюдений не сбылись, но всё же мы это сделали!
За эти три недели были загружены данные как минимум по 413 видам, в двадцатке лидеров из них абсолютное большинство - 16 видов, сосудистые растения, вместе с ними ютятся 4 вида птиц. Это заметное понижение разнообразия по сравнению с прошлым замером: ни одного насекомого или гриба не видно в топе.
Популярных наблюдений совсем немного, это два уникальных наблюдения от @phlomis_2019:
Осока Шаровидная
Латук Двулетний
И наблюдение нашего активного участника @taimyr
Перловник Поникший
Закономерно, все популярные наблюдения в этот раз представляют растения.

Humpback whale in Greenland (21/07/2019)

After hiking the Arctic Circle Trail in the vast wilderniss of Greenland for 9 days we took the ferry to Ilulissat.
We set up camp next to the worldfamous icefjord. We started to explore a little and found a place where the ice and the land formed a natural bay. The ice is full of nutrients and attracts a lot of small fish and krill and these attract the whales again. We just enjoyed sitting there watching 6 whales in the bay for the rest of the day!

Community in my woods

The trees in the wooded area behind my house are fully leafed out now, and there is a lot of community activity. Here are just a few observations:
Last week, I saw what I thought was a fisher slinking through the woods. Based on comments from jobird and sophie, I read about it further and I think it was actually a stoat. I saw it again yesterday, carrying a chipmunk, and I still think it’s a stoat. It was about twice the size of its prey. It made absolutely no sound slinking along the stone wall - very quiet and stealthy. I only heard it as it was going through the leaves on the forest floor. I once had to catch a chipmunk inside my house, so I know how hard that is!
There are a lot of bees - different kinds - around the flowering trees right now. There are two different small flowering trees on the edge of the woods. They are near the burrow in the ground that I saw a bee go into one week ago. The bees clearly prefer one flowering tree over the other. It is almost humming with all of the bees, but they are smaller than the one I saw last week in the burrow. And it’s very hard to get a picture. I’ve also seen a few bigger bumblebees in the tree flowers.
I’ve seen and heard the pileated woodpeckers eating insects off of the trees.
I’ve seen a robin pulling an earthworm from the ground.
I also observed an orange-yellow rust on one of the trees at the edge of the woods. It’s on multiple leaves and on a few branches. I don’t know if it’s harmful to the tree, or neutral. The tree looks very healthy right now. It’s the same tree the bees buzz around, but I don’t believe it’s pollen that I’m seeing.

Blunt-nosed viper in Cyprus (18 oktober 2018)

I saw this viper when I was guiding a group in Cyprus. We were hiking a trail in the Turkish part when suddenly we saw this Macrovipera lebetina lebetina. It lay in a small stream caused by a leaking waterpipe next to the rocky path. It was probably cooling itself and waiting for prey to approach.

The snake was +/- 1,5 meters and seemed to me that it just ate something. It did not move at all so some people thought it was dead. I recognised it was some sort of viper and remembered from an expo about venom in the Natural History Museum in Brussels that vipers had a mean venom that causes cell damage. I also learned there venom is something hard to make for animals and they do not like to waste it.

I was extremely euphoric by seeing such an amazing and endangered animal up close. When we wanted to take some pictures I told the group we should not circle the snake but give it some space so it could flee. When it would feel cornered it would certainly strike and in the poor Turkish Part of Cyprus you can not find antivenom. When I was taking these amazing pictures (probably a little bit too close) with my cellphone the snake suddenly jumped lightning fast through the free space we left it. In a split second he was gone. It was so fast it would have been impossible to withdraw if the snake decided to attack.

After our hike we told some locals our story. First they were laughing because 9 of the 10 snake species in Cyprus are harmless for people and they tought we were some exaggerating tourists. When we showed them the pictures they were really shocked. We never gave the location because we were afraid they would try to kill the snake.

Keoladeo NP

When I was spotting birds in Keoladeo NP I heard someone spotted a leopard. I went to the area hoping to get a glimpse of it. Ofcourse leopards are hard to spot and I did not see anything.

Defeated I left the area when suddenly I saw a canine flee. I grabbed my old camara with a 300mm lens and started the pursuit. Everytime I got just close enough to take a picture they noticed me and left.

After 3 or 4 times I decided to change tactics and circled them so I would be downwind. It worked and I found them staring in the direction of my previous spot. I was able to take this picture but soon they noticed me again. The alpha male urinated at a bush and then they left.

Varsi lähes lehdetön vana, suomumaiset esilehdet sen puolivälissä tai alempana. (Luonto Portti)

Lehti munuaismainen, pyöreäkarvainen ja kalju (vrt. korpiorvokki: lehtilapa leveän sydämenmuotoinen, selväkärkinen ja alta harvaan lyhytkarvainen) (Luonnnonkukat, 44)

Alimmissa lehdissä 2–5 liuskaparia ja kiilamainen päätöliuska.

Tavattiin Suomessa vasta 1840-luvulla ja alkoi toden teolla levitä saman vuosisadan lopussa. Peltokanankaalin voittokulku alkoi, kun karjataloudessa siirryttiin luonnonlaitumista heinän peltoviljelyyn ja kylvösiementä alettiin tuoda ulkomailta. Kanankaali tuottaa runsaasti siemeniä – jopa 10.000 yksilöä kohti – jotka kooltaan ja painoltaan vastaavat heinän- tai apilansiementä ja leviävät hyvin näiden seassa.

Peltokanankaalin talvehtivia lehtiruusukkeita on syöty entisaikaan pitkien talvikuukausien aikana keripukin torjumiseksi.

Perinteisesti talvivihanneksena syödyn kanankaalin suku sai tieteellisen nimensä talvella vietetyn Barbara-pyhimyksen päivän mukaan. Pyhä Barbara oli tykistön, kaivosmiesten ja kivenhakkaajien suojelupyhimys. Hänen suojattinsa olivat toimissaan alttiita saamaan haavoja, joiden lääkitsemiseen nimikkokasvin lehdet onneksi soveltuivat.

Peltokanankaali muistuttaa monia suurenpuoleisia, yksivuotisia ja keltakukkaisia heimonsa lajeja, vaikkapa rikkasinappia, peltokaalia ja peltoretikkaa. Peltokanankaali on kuitenkin yleensä monivuotinen ja edellä mainittuja selvästi tanakampi. Se kukkii jo toukokuun loppupuolella, jolloin monet samojen kasvupaikkojen yksivuotiset lajit ovat vasta pelkkiä taimia. Peltokanankaalin voi erottaa lähisukulaisestaan rantakanankaalista (B. stricta) ennen kaikkea jälkimmäisen varrenmyötäisten litujen ja vain hieman verhiötä pidemmän teriön avulla.

Nykyisen levinneisyyden ydinaluetta ovat lounaisen Suomen ja Ahvenanmaan jalopuumetsiköt ja lehdot. Vaatelias keltavuokko ei tyydy mihin tahansa metsänpohjaan, vaan vaatii viihtyäkseen hyvin viljavan ja multaisen, mieluiten saven pohjustaman alustan. Laji muodostaa laajoja, puhtaita, kullankeltaisia kasvustoja vain maamme parhaissa paikoissa, tavallisesti sitä on vain pieninä laikkuina valkovuokon seassa. Luontaisen esiintymisalueen äärirajat tulevat vastaan jo Oriveden, Eräjärven ja Jämsän tienoill,. (Luontoportti)

Rentukan lehdet ovat myrkyllisiä. Ne voivat aiheuttaa ihmiselle vaihtelevia oireita, kuten polttavaa tunnetta kurkussa, oksentelua, veriripulia, huimausta ja kouristuksia. (Wikipedia)

Käenkaali on sopeutunut kasvamaan metsänpohjan varjossa. Sen juuristo on hento ja lehdet hyvin ohuet, vain muutaman solukerroksen paksuiset. Kasvi on herkkä kuivumiselle, jota vastaan se suojautuu laskostamalla lehdykkänsä alaspäin toisiaan vasten. (luontoportti)

Käenkaalia voi syödä, mutta sitä ei suuremmissa määrin suositella. Se on happaman makuinen ja se sisältää oksaalihappoa. Sen vaikutusta voi kuitenkin neutraloida maidolla, jos ketunleipää syö enemmän. C-vitamiinipitoisuutensa ansiosta sitä on käytetty aiemmin kansanlääkinnässä keripukin hoitoon.

Myöhemmin kesällä kasvi ei vaivaudu enää kasvattamaan komeita avokukkia, vaan tekee kleistogaamisia, avautumattomia umpipölytteisiä kukkia, jotka muistuttavat nuppuja. Noin kolmasosa käenkaalin siemenistä kehittyy pölytyksen kautta ja kaksi kolmasosaa umpinaisiksi jäävistä kesäkukista. (Wikipedia)

Week 7 Natural Area

This week, the new natural area that I went to was in a canyon in the neighborhood of Park Village in San Diego, California. The canyon is located by the green belt park and Foxcroft Place. In this canyon, there is a walking trail surrounded by many different shrubs.
