What's an intensiveness diagram?
ornithology, forestry, entomology, triple E, green generation, water quality, dynamic planet (lakes & rivers), awesome aquifers, meteorology, robot arm, write it do it. :)

I would clarify that with nationals by shooting them an e-mail.
It's so easy, even a Badger could do it.

Note that the rules limit the tabs to 3 words, and generally drawing isn't considered words. That said, this is not the place for official clarifications......

Sorry if this has been asked before, or if this isn't the right place to be asking these questions, but how do you guys tell the yellow birch, sweet birch, american hornbeam, and eastern hophornbeam apart?

I dont know abiut sweet birch vs yellow birch, but for e. Hophornbeam vs a. Hornbeam, i usually think that the a. Hornbeam has slightly larger teeth on the edges compared to the hophornbeam, however, this doesn't always work. Thats about all I know though, hope this helped!

Hornbeam I feel is skinnier than hophornbeam. There is a little overlap, but I think it is the best way to tell the leaves apart

I find sweet birch and yellow birch leaves to be almost identical, so I expect a test would give you some other distinguishing characteristic (hopefully the bark, haha).

Does anyone have any idea how to separate Fremont and Eastern cottonwood?
