    Bob Corrigan commented on "Brief Summary":

    Sam, this is much to complex to be a brief summary, and it lacks a basic introduction to the taxon right up front. I'm going to hide it for now, please revise it into something more compact, and feel free to add the other content to additional text objects. Thanks for the work.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Alternaria alternata":

    This article really should be broken into a number of separate articles, each with its own heading. The "brief summary" should be "brief" - starting with a description of what the taxon is: for example, the following para would be a great way for the reader to be introduced to it: Alternaria species is a hardy fungus and can live in extreme conditions. Alternaria alternata can pass the winter in the soil, seed, infected crop debris or perennial host tissue, such as bark, nodes, and scaly leaves as mycelia and or conidia. Some strains can produce survival structure, microsclerotia, to resistant the unfavorable condition.

    We've got a really good EOL Collection on pollinators - I saw you added Bombus, so you might find that interesting. Thanks!

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Common RI Mammals":

    We have a huge collection of squirrels here at the Smithsonian, and our North American Mammals page for the eastern grey squirrel is also pretty good - give it a look.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Abigail Creamer's Watch List":

    I see you've figured out how to create a "collection" of collections on EOL. You can move collections around too, give that a try.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Common RI Insects":

    The University of Rhode Island has a good brief factsheet on Japanese Beetles. It wasn't until a few years ago that I learned their grubs cause all kinds of trouble feeding on roots, not sure why I never associated that with Japanese Beetles. Keep up the good work.

    This is my favorite "spurdog" photo - glad to see you added it in. And here is a recent article on great white sharks in RI waters. Keep up the good work.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Michael Caterino: Michael, what would be the highest "level" (e.g., order, family, genus) would you want to set a preferred classification and see it propagate "down" from? I'd like to calibrate the requirement a little better.
