Agenda for May 15, 2012 

Matt Muir (USFWS) and Scott Loarie (Stanford)

iNaturalist, an individual photo-based observation network using iOS and Android based collectors (collaboratively with the Citizen's Science Working Group)

Dr Scott Loarie (currently at Stanford University) is the co-Director of, a natural history citizen-science social network to crowd-source data on climate impacts to biodiversity. His work focuses on using distributed datasets (remote sensing and crowd-sourced 'citizen-science' data) and spatio-temporal analysis tools to study interactions among land-use, climate, and biodiversity. His research includes work on:
1) climate change impacts on biodiversity and agriculture,
2) drivers of and barriers to land-use change and implications for climate and biodiversity,
3) using the internet and mobile-devices to scale between field-based measurement and regional models.

Dr Matt Muir (Wildlife Biologist from UC Davis and the University of Puget Sound) works with the Division of International Conservation with the US Fish and Wildlife Service in Arlington.
