Botany for Birders and Butterfliers


Botany for Birders and Butterfliers

Botany anyone? Feel free to post your images and discussions about Maritime flora here. Knowing more about botany is naturally an asset for any naturalist and will definitely help with both Birding and Butterflying (and more), as well as helping to deepen one's appreciation for our natural surroundings. I am no expert botanist, but I know there are many folks here that will certainly help narrow down some of the IDs and we have contacts that can help solve many floral mysteries...

Hi: Does anyone recognize this plant? A friend sent me the photo asking for an ID. All I know is that it was taken in New Brunswick somewhere.  Any help appreciated.ThanksJaneContinue

Chris, until someone starts a "Fungi fun guys and gals" group or reasonable facsimile (no insult intended), feel free to post your images and discussions to this group if you feel it is the most appropriate spot for such...

I hope "botany" includes fungi, 'coz I take many pics of them, and none of them are id'd, except for the only species I know, the Inky Cap.

Joanne, I totally agree and I am glad you feel that way. Woot!

Denis, what's in a name? There are now many welcome facets ot BirdingNewBrunswick which only enrich a great site. What a spot to learn various aspects of the World of Nature in NB! This is a site,[regardless of experience of posters], in which one can: voice concerns, have questions answered, answer questions, meet friends and learn about/celebrate Flora and Fauna as presented by talented photographers and informed persons.

It's multifaceted and we love it!

Dwayne, I agree, tongue-in-cheek :). It started off with that name (and therefore it is difficult to change the web address-we would need to start the site over from scratch) and we soon realized that it was somewhat limiting in SOME ways, but should not be a major issue, as long as folks realized that birds may well be the number one topic, but that anything nature and NB related should be "fair game" too. Early on, folks were invited by the original site owners to form groups on different topics (such as dragonflies and butterflies) within a week or two of the site's debut and that aspect has not changed; indeed, it's been growing more rapidly recently with the influx of new members and that is a good thing.

Another interesting group. I'm not sure that "BirdingNewBrunswick" is the most appropriate name for this site :)

1995 was the last year wich i've studied botany!!! There's a lot of dust on theses field guides  -_-

Wonderful subject .... I am ready to learn.

Comment by Denis A. Doucet on June 8, 2012 at 5:46am

Joanne, it would appear that way! Again with the caveat, I am no botany expert, but if we vcan all help each other out, that would be great. Jimmy, botany is the study of botanicals ;) Anne, I am virtually certain that Jimmy will find new additions to the NB botanical list before the weekend is out and take amazing pictures of said specimens to boot. Jimmy, I think it is fair we are all getting in way over our heads, but that is half the fun! Bring on the mass floral queries!!!

Great addition to the site Denis. Something else for Jimmy Dee to get those great photos of ha.
