NEW Eco-Link: Citizen Science

Download Forestinfo.org's newest Eco-Link - Citizen Science: A Tool for Crowdsourcing Field Data

"For scientists, gathering large data sets for research can be a daunting task. Oftentimes it requires significant investments in time and money, especially if travel is required to complete the task. For non-scientists, opportunities to contribute to scientific inquiry and discovery can seem few and far between. Fortunately for today’s scientists and non-scientists alike, the rise of the Internet has given prominence to 'citizen science'. Citizen science is the term used to describe the process of gathering empirical information by means of crowdsourcing data. Data compiled from these inquiries may inform research trends (or lack thereof) that occur on local, state, national, and international levels."
