I mean Ill have the names of all the trees on my two double sided pages of notes but this would be something i think i need to know. thanks in advance!

Whatever you put on your two double sided pages of notes, and nothing else. Well, besides your 2 tabbed books. And you. And a pencil.

Alright thank you. What kind of information are you guys putting on your cheat sheet? I was thinking about doing interesting facts, do you guys think that would be helpful? It's kind of hard to put identification clues and stuff because you don't have enough time to read through your cheat sheet for something like that? In not sure though, help please!

On the NYS Trees list it lists "Crataegus sp" and then Hawthorne as the common name. My field guide has 13 different hawthornes in the Crataegus family.

Does that mean we have to know every hawthorne?

Sp., in binomial nomenclature, means that it is an unspecified species.
By that, I'd assume that you have to know all hawthornes, but if there is a basic Hawthorne, I'd probably want to know that more.

EDIT: Is there a Crataegus genus inside the family of the same name?

Excuse me, I meant Crataegus genus. The family is Rosaceae.

I have seen some general questions about xylem, phloem, basic tree anatomy... but I've never seen anything as detailed as the Calvin cycle being asked.
Oh good. I was planning on learning the Calvin cycle and such; now I don't have to. :)

In regards to the note sheet, are we allowed to type them, or do they have to be handwritten?

You should be able to know when a picture/sample is a hawthorne, but you won't have to distinguish between species because they're so similar to each other.
ornithology, forestry, entomology, triple E, green generation, water quality, dynamic planet (lakes & rivers), awesome aquifers, meteorology, robot arm, write it do it. :)

But in the rules under event parameter: "...up to two commercially published resources that may be annotated and tabbed (limit 3 words)"
So far...medaling has been a rollercoaster
but hopefully, next one would be on top!

Yes, but that's if you put tabs, I thought you could write whatever you wanted in your field guides.

EDIT: "tabs" as in those sticky things you can buy, or like post-its
