4.1 Capacity Building

4.2 Methods to answer research questions
For our analysis we will select species that are readily identifiable from photographs, are relatively easy to find, and occur across multiple sites and years. Based on our work photographing and identifying moths, plants and lichens over the past two years, we estimate that the network will process an average of over 10,000 specimens identified to species per year at each site. Once we build custom identification guides to the sites, each verified identification will require approximately one minute of human time.
