First results of the campaing

Since the project became public and it has been advertised we have had a big increase in the rate of submission of new photos, more than 100 in 3 days. The whole dataset has expanded by 15% in a very short amount of time.

The number of identified photos has also increased, but not as much. But worry not, we have botanists from Ethiopia and Kew Royal Botanical Gardens that have volunteered to help identifying the photos, so we should see an increase in identifications too.

I would ask the community to help in flagging if a species has been planted or not (there do not seem to be many cases yet but they may increase).

We will expand the checklist of Ethiopian plants, currently very limited
this will help all of us knowing if the species being observed are native or introduced.

thanks all for the effort and get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions
