Jimfbleak - talk to me? 16:21, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your octopus article. I've tweaked it a bit, you might want to look at Eledone moschata to see if there is anything more you can do to improve your article. In-line references are good, but not compulsory. Jimfbleak - talk to me? 16:24, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Jim

Thanks for all your help with the Curled Octopus article. I saw in the NBN Gateway that Curled Octopus was the commonest Octopus in Scottish waters and was surprised that there was no wikipedia article on this species. I then decided to add my own, although my knowledge of Octopii is limited. I have added some new information today.

DavidQuetzal1964 (talk) 20:46, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, I know nothing about cephalopods, but I've been around a long time, so I can do the formatting and such-like. I've move one of your refs in-line, you might want to do the same with the others. Try to vary your wording a bit more from the original texts, I know it's not intended, but too-close paraphrasing risks copyright infringement. Jimfbleak - talk to me? 07:24, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

I was speaking to a colleague today whose brother is a lobster and crab fisherman in Fife and in his experience this species is a significant pain, he hardly ever sees them as they exit the creels before they are raised but when they eat three lobsters from a single creel that's a big loss. I can't think of anyway of including that anectdotal information in the article but I found some science to back it up.

Wasps[edit]

Hello Quetzal1964, I noticed your new articles pop up in the "new pages" list lately and just wanted to say: keep up the good work! You are doing a great job. Glad to see someone else working on insect articles. Ruigeroeland (talk) 09:18, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, enjoying this so will continue.Quetzal1964 18:38, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Dipogon (Plant)[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Dipogon (Plant), and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Dipogon. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. MadmanBot (talk) 06:16, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Cryptocheilus bicolor ... spooky[edit]

When I tried to ID this morning's photo, the species page didn't exist, but when I came back this evening, you'd created it! Thanks. --99of9 (talk) 12:40, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Dipogon[edit]

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Dipogon a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Talk:Dipogon (plant). This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. --CharlieDelta (talk) 19:33, 3 April 2012 (UTC)


Science lovers wanted![edit]

Science lovers wanted!

Thanks for creating Delta dimidiatipenne, Quetzal1964!

Wikipedia editor Animalparty just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Note that images in {{taxobox}} should be entered in the format Filename.jpg, not in thumbnail markup or Image:Filname.jpg. This assures the image fills the entire space, and it looks nicer too.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 16:53, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

A page you started (Niklas Westring) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating Niklas Westring, Quetzal1964!

Wikipedia editor Animalparty just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Note that we should NEVER use other Wikipedia articles, in any language, as a reference, per WP:CIRCULAR. Otherwise we risk perpetuating unverifiable information, or outright falsehoods. Cheers.

Spider articles[edit]

Nice article on Xerolycosa nemoralis. We need more spider editors, so keep going! Just to point out that as per WP:SECONDARY, where possible we should use secondary sources, especially for taxonomic matters, so authorities and synonyms are best referenced to the World Spider Catalog, which is the accepted international source of spider taxonomy. The project page, WP:SPIDERS, has links to useful information, although the project is not very active at present. Peter coxhead (talk) 09:14, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Taxonomy templates[edit]

Hi, in taxonomy templates (i.e. "Template:Taxonomy/..." pages), there's no formatting in the fields. Have a look at Template:Taxonomy/Trochosa as I fixed it. (It's also now used in the article Trochosa.) Ideally also include a reference to the World Spider Catalog both in the article and the template; see e.g. Template:Taxonomy/Gelanor. The automatic taxobox system is quite complicated; there's an introduction at Template:Automatic_taxobox/doc/intro, but I'm always happy to help or advise if you leave a note on my talk page. Peter coxhead (talk) 09:25, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

Nice article; synonyms from WSC[edit]

Nice start article at Cheiracanthium erraticum!

Unfortunately the World Spider Catalog does not directly list synonyms, as is explained at Wikipedia:WikiProject Spiders/Style guide#Synonyms (there really needs to be an index to the project's information!). In this specific case:

  • The line "Clubiona nutrix Hahn, 1831a: 7, f. 98 (mf, misidentified)" shows that this is not a synonym but a misidentification.
  • The lines "Clubiona erratica Walckenaer, 1805: 43" and "Cheiracanthium erraticum Westring, 1861: 380" show that in 1805 Walckenaer transferred the species from his earlier Aranea to Clubiona and in 1861 Westring then transferred it to Cheiracanthium. In zoological nomenclature, when a species is moved from one genus to another retaining the second part of the binomen (the species name), the name and date of the original author is kept, placed in parentheses (see Author citation (zoology)). The mover is ignored (unlike botanical nomenclature). So the correct citations of these two names are "Clubiona erratica (Walckenaer, 1802)" and "Cheiracanthium erraticum (Walckenaer, 1802)". You can check the correctness of the second one from the entry for the species in the WSC.

Sometimes one of the other references will give a true synonym list with taxon authors and dates, but the WSC is usually more detailed, so is often the best source once it has been "decoded". Peter coxhead (talk) 09:55, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

Xysticus cristatus is another nice article, but the synonyms are still not right. Peter coxhead (talk) 08:59, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

A page you started (Dissosteira carolina) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating Dissosteira carolina, Quetzal1964!

Wikipedia editor Animalparty just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Note that sources like ZipcodeZoo and BugGuide.net may be not reliable sources themselves, as the first primarily aggregates other databases (including Wikipedia: see WP:CIRCULAR), and the second is user generated.

Another nice article[edit]

Nice start article on Allan Frost Archer! You can search the bibliography at the World Spider Catalog – see here. These could be added to the article, perhaps. Peter coxhead (talk) 19:17, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Great work on Pepsis grossa. You are doing great work on building that article, and I would greatly encourage writing more content: we need more editors like you around the community. Sadads (talk) 03:01, 25 September 2016 (UTC)


Link in taxonomy template[edit]

Hi, when a genus article is not at the genus name, as for Zora which is at Zora (spider), the taxonomy template (in this case Template:Taxonomy/Zora) needs to be set up as it is now. The |link= field is given the (apparent) value actual article name|taxon name. (I won't try to explain here why it's only an "apparent" value). Unfortunately there are quite a few taxonomy templates around not correctly set up in this way to serve as bad examples! Peter coxhead (talk) 18:03, 27 September 2016 (UTC)


Invite to the African Destubathon[edit]

Hi. You may be interested in participating in the African Destubathon which starts on October 15. Africa currently has over 37,000 stubs and badly needs a quality improvement editathon/contest to flesh out basic stubs. There are proposed substantial prizes to give to editors who do the most geography, wildlife and women articles, and planned smaller prizes for doing to most destubs for each of the 55 African countries, so should be enjoyable! Even if contests aren't your thing we would be grateful if you could consider destubbing a few African wildlife articles during the drive to help the cause and help reduce the massive 37,000 + stub count, of which many are rated high importance. If you're interested in competing or just loosely contributing any article related to a topic you often work on, please add your name to the Contestants/participants section. Might be a good way to work on fleshing out articles you've long been meaning to target and get rewarded for it! Diversity of work from a lot of people will make this that bit more special. Thanks. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 04:57, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

A little early I'm afraid, it starts in just under 3 hrs time :-) You can add the articles done already to Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge though, but the contest has to start on the 15th to make it a fair run!♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:14, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Ah that explains why no one else seemed to be participating. Thanks, missed that point.Quetzal1964 20:19, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Haha, yeah that's why! Can you make sure that all refs are filled out though, the Botswana entry had two sources in the middle which need publisher info, all the sourcing will have to be sound to be approved. Nice job other than that though! Just add the two or three you did to the challenge and then you can have a whole six weeks to do what you want in three hours time ;-). Best of luck and look forward to seeing more great articles coming in! If there's anybody else you might know who hasn't signed up and might be interested give them a bell too!♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:22, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Can you remember to update the talk page project tag to start class too! I often forget that myself!♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:46, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

Africa Destubathon[edit]

Hi, thanks for your work so far! Can you do me a favour though and always add every entry you do to the main list here as well as the entries page, regardless if yet approved or not as that's the master list of all articles being done. It's just veyr time consuming for me to be judging the articles, trying to contribute myself and chasing up what people have done and filling it out for people each time. So if you can take care of that this would be a great help, there's some part filled out ones underneath so you just need to add country, article name and then you username. Thanks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:33, 16 October 2016 (UTC) Will do, you haven't included Edible Bullfrog under the total for Zambia on the leaderboard, I assume I am not supposed to edit that. Back at work now, so edits should slow down a bit! Quetzal1964 07:42, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

Can you remember to add entries to the main page list. Thanks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:51, 19 October 2016 (UTC) Thought I was, what did I miss? Quetzal1964 19:55, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Quetzal1964. I see you have been doing work on vachellias, thought of letting you know about this merge proposal. It was tagged for merger, but the discussion was not created at the time, so it never happened. Perhaps you might want to look at it and act on the proposal.

Taxonbars for spiders[edit]

Could you please explain to me what you think is the point of adding {{Taxonbar}} to spider articles, such as Pardosa monticola for example.

  • You haven't included the most important taxonomic database for spiders, the World Spider Catalog – this has to be added manually at present.
  • Fauna Europaea's taxonomy is hopelessly out of date; the division of Araneae into three suborders, Araneomorphae, Labidognatha and Orthognatha, was abandoned years ago.
  • ITIS says clearly that it got its data from an old version of the World Spider Catalog, so why include what is just a mirror site?
  • GBIF also copies from the World Spider Catalog, as noted here.
  • That leaves EoL, basically a lightly curated blog, no more reliable (and usually less so) than Wikipedia.
  • The only one of the taxonomic databases that adds anything is GBIF.

So what's the point of cluttering spider articles in this way? Peter coxhead (talk) 09:04, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

The articles involve Africa too as Lessepsian migrants have been found as far west as Algeria. Some of the facts are really interesting, especially where species which were previously unknown to science were described in the med but were found to be invaders from the Red Sea but I can't nominate my own articles for DYK. (talk) Quetzal1964 20:38, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Excellent. Yes it's a pity that the African content production has decreased in recent months. Hopefully I can get a few contests running again though, they're definitely the best way to get content improved enmasse.♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:39, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks on behalf of Wikiproject Insects Hymenoptera task force![edit]

Thanks for all your recent edits adding automatic taxoboxes to wasp pages! The taxonomy of many insect groups is often rewritten, and having automatic taxoboxes is a great way to deal with the changes to many pages at a higher level. I hope you continue to help shore up the many wasp pages! If you have any insights as to tasks that need to be done with Hymenoptera at large, consider visiting the task force page. Cheers! M. A. Broussard (talk) 23:05, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

Taxonomy template link parameter[edit]

Hi, the taxobox at Boulder chat should show the genus name, Pinarornis, in bold text and without a link – bold because the article is about the monotypic genus as well as the species, and unlinked because otherwise the link would be circular, just leading back to the article. When I first looked at the article, the line in the taxobox looked like this: "Genus: Pinarornis", whereas it should look like this: "Genus: Pinarornis".

To achieve this, |link= at Template:Taxonomy/Pinarornis must be given the value Boulder chat|Pinarornis. What happens then is that the code that sets up the taxobox starts off with a wikilink like [[Boulder chat|Pinarornis]], but the Wikimedia software recognizes that the article is called "Boulder chat" so this is a circular link, and replaces it by bolding.

The general point is that |link= must be set to have the actual article title as the first value, and not rely on a redirect, otherwise the taxobox formatting won't always be correct.

One more of these subtle points about automated taxoboxes! Peter coxhead (talk) 20:08, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Snowy Egret[edit]

Thanks, but are you sure? I linked the wikidata item to three egrets, because the commons categories are not clear (and neither are the museums. Talking about this. So if correct, thanks, but can you check the others I linked in the Wikidata item - theoretically only one should be linked. Thx Jane (talk) 19:56, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Jane Absolutely sure. My reasoning is, putting aside that I am a birder with experience of most of the world's species called egrets, as you know the image is from Birds of America by Audubon (published originally in my home city of Edinburgh) and the image shows a small Egretta species in breeding plumage. The only candidate in North America in the early 19th Century would be Snowy Egret, Great egret is a much bulkier beast and in proportion more like the Great Blue Heron or Grey Heron. Here is a great egret from Birds of America http://audubon.nyhistory.org/great-egret/ and here is the link to the image you posted http://www.audubon.org/birds-of-america/snowy-heron-or-white-egret . The old world little egret and cattle egret have now spread to the Americas too.Quetzal1964 (talk) 20:09, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
Nice. It would be nice to have all of these linked to Wikidata items that point to the proper bird in Wikidata through Wikispecies.

Michael Patrick Stuart Irwin[edit]

Hello Quetzal1964, I see you have added a date for the death of ornithologist, Michael P.S. Irwin. As an article for him does not yet exist and I am interested in starting one, do you have a link to his obituary? The only ref I have currently is this page. The September 2012 Honeyguide issue also looks promising, but I only have access to the index. 'Cheers, Loopy30 (talk) 23:14, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Loopy30 I subscribe to a listserv called African Birding and it was announced on that listserv that Michael Irwin had died on 13 September 2017 so it's a wee bit early for formal obituaries, of which I am sure there will be many. The first ones will probably be in the British press such as The Guardian, The Times or the Daily Telegraph. As he was born in Northern Ireland the Belfast Telegraph may also carry an obituary. The ornithological journals will take longer, as you are no doubt aware, but British Birds or Ibis will probably publish one. I own a 2nd edition copy of his Birds of Zimbabwe which has very limited biographical information on its author. Quetzal1964 (talk) 06:23, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Thankyou for your participation in the challenge series or/and contests. In November The Women in Red World Contest is being held to try to produce new articles for as many countries worldwide and occupations as possible. There will be over $4000 in prizes to win, including Amazon vouchers and paid subscriptions. If this would appeal to you and you think you'd be interested in contributing new articles on women during this month for your region or wherever please sign up in the participants section. The articles done may also count towards the ongoing challenge. If you're not interested in prize money yourself but are willing to participate and raise money to buy books about women for others to use, this is also fine. Help would also be appreciated in drawing up the lists of missing articles. If you think of any missing articles please add them to the sub lists by continent at Missing articles. Thankyou, and if taking part, good luck!♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:54, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

Dr. Blofeld yes personal circumstances. I tried to look at a few missing articles and its just that most would be outside my area of knowledge and interest and finding online sources seemed very difficult. Most of the articles appear to be BLPs which are normally a type of article I try to avoid. I certainly aim to try and edit or create a few more articles on women, especially women who have been active in biological sciences (see new "stub" on Louise Schilthuis) but not in a competitive way. Yes I do hope WMF continue to support your competitions and this one would have been a real challenge for me but at this moment I do not have the time.Quetzal1964 (talk) 07:12, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Sasakiopus salebrosus[edit]

Hi, Quetzal1964. I have moved the genus to the species because I do not think it makes sense to have two pages for what comes to be the same animal. I see it as useless, and in fact, it's something that I agree with. I think a taxon has to have a page if it contains two or more taxa. And the common names, it does not matter, usually put the common names of title, but it is not mandatory. By the way, in your message you tell me "but it will not follow the accepted conventions on Wikipedia". Is there any policy that affirms this? --Super Ψ Dro 21:28, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Why suppressing the ref link ? Pueblopassingby (talk) 14:19, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

The word "catholic" does not need a citation, it has been used to emphasise that this species is not host specific. In this context "catholic" means non specialised, unfussy.Quetzal1964 (talk) 14:21, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
that does not answer the question. Please do.Pueblopassingby (talk) 14:24, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
or maybe you did not pay enough attention to see that there was a link added to a ref in the same edit ? Pueblopassingby (talk) 14:26, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
Is a url needed when there is a doi? They both link to the reference so is having both not otiose? Quetzal1964 (talk) 14:29, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
By all means change "catholic" to a synonym if you think its more suitable. I think catholic is the most appropriate in this context. Quetzal1964 (talk) 14:33, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
@Pueblopassingby:I am not going to revert that, I still think catholic in its non religious context "including a wide variety of things; all-embracing" is the correct term, and I was brought up as a Roman Catholic, but you didn't answer my question on why a url and a doi are both needed in a citation? Quetzal1964 (talk) 14:39, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
lol, I was answering it but your edit came along.
By experience doi work less often than url (I did not think so to start with and I really son't see why it should be so, but...). That's only my own experience, though must say it happened once more (!) only today. Also and more importantly, when the weblinks get broken, the works are easier to recover with the "broken link" data; whereas I don't know of the equivalent for doi (if there is one, please do tell: it would be very useful to know that). So I have taken to adding web links quite systematically. Pueblopassingby (talk) 14:43, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
N.B.: I fail to see how "catholic" can be considered as having a non-religious signification. In both en and fr, using it in a 'non-catholic' context still implies that catholic is a reference for 'agreed-upon norm'. As a bit of humour I'd say that considering the world's political context I quite appreciate it for all human affairs, but I'd rather we humans leave bees out of politics! :) Pueblopassingby (talk) 14:53, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

Ex. of "broken doi" : same article, "Species of Melittobia (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) established in Bahamas, Costa Rica, Cuba, Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and Trinidad". Just updated it. Another reason I put web links is that with the web link, En wiki very intelligently puts a link on the whole title of article/book/aso - I find this somehow easier to use, it's more direct. Doi does not do that. Pueblopassingby (talk) 15:03, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

You may personally fail to see how catholic can be used in a non religious context but as an ex-Roman Catholic, a native speaker of British English (Scottish variety) and a Biology graduate I find catholic has a scientific meaning too. Just google "catholic host choice in parasitoids" (annoyingly you have to add the last two words or you get articles about the Eucharist) and you will see the term is widely used. Quetzal1964 (talk) 15:14, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

───────────────────────── An interesting Google search is for "catholic diet" OR "catholic diets" biology. It does produce a few related to religion, but judging at least from the first few pages of hits, most of the 800,000+ are biology-related. One result, for "their catholic diet and a geographically variable sex life completes a portrait of an unusual animal" struck me as somewhat amusing if you think that "catholic" always has the religious sense.

thanks[edit]

thanks for fixing up Centriscidae . I had no objections to the contents--it's just that the edits I reverted seem to have accidentally placed deletion tags on the article, and I couldn't otherwise figure out quickly how to fix them. I may have been a biologist, but I am totally ignorant about plant taxonomy. tell one plant DGG ( talk ) 19:59, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

No, thank you! That's what happens when you're in a rush. I too know very little about plant taxonomy, or fish taxonomy for that matter, but I love learning. Quetzal1964 (talk) 20:07, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

DYK for Walter Kenrick Fisher[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 20 June 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Walter Kenrick Fisher, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the marine biologist Walter Kenrick Fisher illustrated the book The Salinas: Upside Down River written by his wife Anne B. Fisher? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Walter Kenrick Fisher. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Walter Kenrick Fisher), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Invitation to participate in study[edit]

Hello,

I am E. Whittaker, an intern at Wikimedia with the Scoring Team to create a labeled dataset, and potentially a tool, to help editors deal with incivility when they encounter it on talk pages. A full write-up of the study can be found here: m:Research:Civil_Behavior_Interviews. We are currently recruiting editors to be interviewed about their experiences with incivility on talk pages. Would you be interested in being interviewed? I am contacting you because of your involvement in Wikipedia’s Women in Red project. The interviews should take ~1 hour, and will be conducted over BlueJeans (which does allow interviews to be recorded). If, so, please email me at ewhit@umich.edu in order to schedule an interview.

Thank you Ewitch51 (talk) 20:25, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Apogonidae[edit]

Good day, why did you remove the "Phylogeny of Apogonidae" section from the wikipage Apogonidae? It was properly cite and the work was from a reputable peer reviewed journal. If it was too detailed on lower level clades, you could have just taken off the genera and/tribes and let the subfamilies.Videsh Ramsahai (talk) 19:42, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Videsh Ramsahai: Thank you for getting in touch. The accepted taxonomy for Wikipedia's Wikipedia:WikiProject Fishes is the Fifth Edition of Nelson's Fishes of the World, I was following that. I removed the cladogram because it does not agree with Nelson. You are free restore it, naturally, but it should be to be presented as an alternative to the "accepted" classification of Nelson which only recognises two subfamilies.

WikiCup heating up

Tree of Life editors are making a respectable showing in this year's WikiCup, with three regular editors advancing to the third round. Overall winner from 2016, Casliber, topped the scoreboard in points for round 2, getting a nice bonus for bringing Black mamba to FA. Enwebb continues to favor things remotely related to bats, bringing Stellaluna to GA. Plants editor Guettarda also advanced to round 3 with several plant-related DYKs.

Wikipedia page views track animal migrations, flowers blooming

A March 2019 paper in PLOS Biology found that Wikipedia page views vary seasonally for species. With a dataset of 31,751 articles about species, the authors found that roughly a quarter of all articles had significant seasonal variations in page views on at least one language version of Wikipedia. They examined 245 language versions. Page views also peaked with cultural events, such as views of the Great white shark article during Shark Week or Turkey during Thanksgiving.

Seasonal variation in page views among nine bird species
Did you know ... that Tree of Life editors bring content to the front page nearly every day?
