All the Species in My Yard

yup-all of them, great AND small

About July 21, 2009

On this blog I’m attempting to document every single species that I can find on my property — which is a small house and yard in Portland, Oregon, USA.  In a lot of ways there’s nothing special about my place, but the closer I look, the more it is teeming with life. I imagine this project could take quite a while.

I’m quite serious about doing every species, but once I get past the first 100 or so, I’m really going to need some help with ID’s. If you’re an entomologist or a microbial ecologist that might be willing to help out, please drop me a line.
