    Thanks Cyndy. Here's a link to an example that doesn't work: https://www.flickr.com/photos/113949770@N03/15613634478/. I'm hoping I can learn what's different about that one as opposed to one that did get imported correctly like https://www.flickr.com/photos/113949770@N03/14027441436/.

    @Scott Ellsworth: Michael is right, there's a computer program that should bring everything into EOL that meets the requirements. If you can give some examples of photos that you think should be harvested that aren't, the EOL team can follow up.

    @Scott Ellsworth: If the photos are properly tagged, then they are imported automatically, provided they also carry a suitable Creative Commons license. Best to check if they are licensed, and also check for any typos in the machine tags.

    I should clarify. I know how to properly tag photos in Flickr, and some of my images have ended up on the proper EOL taxon page, but some haven't. I was assuming curators were the ones who took images from Flickr and approved them for EOL pages.

    I'm a brand new assistant curator. Can someone please explain how to import images from Flickr to a taxon page? Thanks.

    Duplicate pages: http://eol.org/pages/631280/overview and http://eol.org/pages/38652753/overview Can they be merged, please!

    @Deniz Martinez: I think it would be better to downrate them with one star which will put them towards the end of media collections. These photos may still be useful for some purposes, so we probably would not want to remove them from public view entirely.

    I have a question...if there are enough good quality photos of a species alive and well, is it ok to hide photos of them as roadkill? :/ Thanks, Deniz

    @Yan Wong: That's really strange. I have added the common name "herrings" to the Clupea page. That should put this page at the top of the search results list. I have also added a redirect that sends people directly to this page, so they don't have to deal with all the species described by various Herrings.

    @Andrew Brower: Hi Andy, have you tried the curator worklist? Look for the Worklist tab on any EOL taxon page. There are a bunch of content filters available at the top of the page to customize the things you see in the list.

    Andrew Brower commented on "EOL Curators":

    Hi all, Is there any way to bulk-curate multiple images of the same thing? I am looking at an entire page of photos of monarch butterfly overwintering colonies. It is obvious from the thumbnails that that's what they are, and it is very time-consuming to open and trust each of them individually. AB

    Not sure what can be done about this, but I imagine a search for "herring" should give Atlantic Herring somewhere high up? http://eol.org/search?q=herring&search=Go

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Thanks Michael, this should be fixed now. The problem was due to the fact that Cornutia pyramidata has a bunch of synonyms in the genus Hosta Jacq.: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/record/kew-47586

    Cornutia (Lamiaceae) images are also appearing incorrectly on the Hosta (Asparagaceae) page. Can they be disassociated, please?

Sajeev Department of Geology, AWH Special College, Calicut, Kerala, India Correspondence should be addressed to Riffin T. Sajeev, riffin@rediffmail.c om Publication Date: 24 July 2014 Article Link: http://scientific.cloud-journals.com/index.php/IJAESE/article/view/Sci-198 Abstract: Living oysters of Crassostrea Sp. are abundantly found on the east coast of peninsular India. Most of the living Crassostrea sp. is reported from Athankarai estuary near mandapam. The primary object of this study is to report the occurrence of fossils of Crassostrea sp. belonging to mio-pliocene outcrops from an ephemeral stream channel of Nambiyar/Thoppuvila River up to Attankarai Pallivasal, Tirunelveli dist, Tamil Nadu, India. The present study focuses on revealing the nature of a vast paleo-estuary that had existed on the foothills of the southern end of the Western Ghats during the Mio-Pliocene age. The authors had studied the taphonomical features of Crassostrea Gigantissima Sp. and analyzed the adaptation features like heaviness and foliated nature of the shell and orientation of oyster colonies for survival. The predatory signatures on the fossil specimens indicate traces of a well flourished saline tolerable environment that resembled an ideal estuary subjected to high energy disturbances. The chalky calcareous deposits found throughout the study area could have acted as an accelerating agent for the thick, foliate and heavy calcite shells of C. Gigantissima Sp. The author proposes a vast paleo-estuary with an area of around 460 km2 during the mio-pliocene age and the remnants present today is the result of an abrupt regression due to uplift which could have taken place in this area. Keywords: Mahendragiri Hills, Paleo-Estuary, Mio-Pliocene, Crassostrea Sp., Ichnotaxa, Taphonomy, Adaptation.
