Endemic to the Western Ghats of India, Malabar Gliding Frogs have brilliant webbing between their toes which enable them to leap and cover distances. Saw this pair with the male grabbing the female behind her armpits in an embrace known as axillary amplexus. During the amplexus males hold onto a selected place for building a foam nest and beat their legs to form foam in which the eggs are laid and then covered with seminal fluid. The foam nest is usually built above a waterbody so that as soon as the eggs hatch and turn into tadpoles, they can drop into the water.
For the developers at New York start-up Networked Organisms, smartphones are the butterfly nets of the 21st Century. Their tool, Project Noah, lets people upload photos of plants and wildlife around them, creating a map of the natural world and contributing to scientific research in the process.
Bespectacled scientists of yore would carry around hefty field guides, made up of hundreds of pages of text and photos. But these days, smartphone owners have a lighter option: an app called Project Noah, which aims to help people identify plants and animals as well as collect data from "citizen scientists" about where certain species are located.
Project Noah enables us to be part of a more focused online community where we can learn more about wildlife around us and contribute to scientific research. It pulls participants into deeper, more meaningful engagement by enabling people to go on “missions” to collectively map changes based on sightings.
A modern invention that may also hold the key to saving species in the future. Project Noah is a global study that encourages nature lovers to document the wildlife they encounter, using a purpose built phone app and web community. In addition to the virtual "collection" of species, Project Noah encourages citizen science by linking up with existing surveys including the International Spider Survey and the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network.
