Top Ten NAHERP Data Contributors

Post by Brian Hubbs » August 12th, 2012, 4:39 pm

Your rank can be seen at: http://www.naherp.com/reports/overall-rankings.php

Be aware that it may take up to 3 minutes to load the page. All scores can be changed to highest or lowest by clicking on the categories at the top. This page will tell you your number of each species, numbers of county records, total counties, etc. Take a look.

5 of the top 10 data depositors are from the WEST. I find that interesting, considering our dry conditions most of the year. Here's the entire top 10 as of right now (8-12-12):

Brian Hubbs - 6,002
Brian Hinds (aka Fundad) - 4,401
Bob Ferguson (brick911) - 3,430
Kyle Loucks - 3,377
Nate Nazdrowicz - 3,367
Mike Pingleton - 3,344
Jonathan Hakim - 2,876
Tamara McConnell - 2,381
Taylor Henry - 1,784
John Lauermann AKA ricrabt - 1,749

Let's keep it up. We're doing great!

In addition, here are the top contributors for species and counties:

Most Crocodilians - Curtis Hart - 64
Most Frogs & Toads - Nate Nazdrowicz - 1,697
Most Salamanders - Bob Ferguson - 750
Most Lizards - Brian Hubbs - 1,757
Most Snakes - Brian Hinds (aka Fundad) - 2,616
Most Turtles - Brian Hubbs - 1,418
Most Counties - Brian Hubbs - 319
Most County Records - Chris Harrison - 946

Yeah, that's pretty incredible Hubbs. Thanks for posting this up, even though I was trying to fly under the radar. ;)

Tamara has been sharing her finds with Raymond too.
Ray herps with me, of course, but his finds are legitimately his own.

I know, but before you were previously entering his too.. You two should be counted as a "team" :D :thumb:

Yeah, I've thought that, too. Maybe for next year I will ask Psyon to work it that way. Although I think Ray kind of likes entering his data.

Man, I should have recorded each of the 100 cricket frogs I saw while out walking the river last night.

I can count 100 southern toads here in a couple of days. Maybe I should...

Every entry helps map the distribution and abundance of those species...You never know when data on toads might be wanted. I enter a lot of bullfrogs from the WEST, mostly to show where they are and where they need to be exterminated from... :lol: Same with the other "invasives"...

Some people will group all the toads, frogs or lizards from any given locality into one entry, while others enter all of them separately and give each its own gps dot...this is up to the individual entering the data, but either method is useful. I think I'll start consolidating my entries from the same locality (it's less work), except for the snakes and pond turtles (I like showing the abundance for those).
