that elevation sounds a lot more reasonable.

“fun” federal acronym…I image you don’t get too many of those! ;)

good to see so many fungal censuses taking place…many more to come (and needed)!

All confusion regarding the labels aside, elevation at the trail is somewhere around 3600 ft./1100 meters – it’s above Nevada City on Harmony Ridge.

Alan, Daniel and I may not have explained to you exactly what was going on with the labels. We were doing a practice run for the S&M project (which is happening in the Cascades, not the Sierras) and we were using old labels from the fall surveys – Dimitar’s in this case – just to provide a number for the data recorders, and to get into practice for the upcoming spring surveys. Our collections from Friday aren’t going to be part of that database, so these numbers will not be used. Wendy is in charge of this project, and I agree with her: we will all be less confused if you would be kind enough to remove these photo labels from MO.
These morels and some of the other collections we made are going to UC Berkeley today. I’m treating them as I would any other individual collection – not as part of any project. I will provide better (permanent) numbers when I enter them into the UC database, which will be matched up with these observations, and sequence data…eventually.
I’m sorry for the confusion, Alan, Wendy, et al! It was great to see you out in the woods, Alan, and thank you for hanging out with Daniel and me on our walk.

“there are ongoing collections for this project and eliminating any confusion would be great”
…was mentioned.

Plus the ‘important information’ is confusing. It isn’t fall, it isn’t 2011, Dimitar was nowhere nearby. This collection isn’t part of the project that label was printed for, etc…

The tag has important information about this collection that will help match the photos with the DNA sequences. Why should I take it out?

This is a fun federal acronym for “Survey and Manage” a designation under the Northwest Forest Plan.

Hi Alan, I am the maker of the S&M tags which are for a specific survey project up near McCloud. Could you crop the picture to get the tag out, there are ongoing collections for this project and eliminating any confusion would be great! Thanks, Wendy

even converting it to feet.

Elevation was 657 meters

The tag was supplied by Daniel Nicholson and Thea. I have no idea why someone decided to call it S&M. Dimitar wasn’t there. Perhaps he was overseeing the whole operation from his secret base in Hercules.

elevation there?

What’s with the S&M tag in Dimitar’s name?
