Does anyone want to have a video conference for invasive species jeopardy this season?
Yeah I'm down
I'll probably get beat but I would participate.
I would participate, but who, when, and how still have to be answered. Weekends would be preferable. Thanks gavinupp for the diferrence. Also I notice Ips' hair seems to be orange in all the pictures I see. Maybe that too?

The plant taxonomy are really weird. I'm finding unranked plants and ones that have clades...? I'm also seeing multiple classifications that differ from source to source??
Since clades are basically unofficial, should I not include it or?

Thanks guys !

Yeah I am finding a lot of conflicting sources for plant taxonomy. Does anyone have something credible for the taxonomy of fig buttercup (Ficaria verna)?

Plant taxonomy (and fossil taxonomy) is just one of those things that you can't get a clear answer about. I'd suggest you put down the conflicting names along with when they were used or whether they're still considered valid, and answer questions based on your judgement of the ES.

Is there a list of invasive species that we have to study?

Yes

Additionally, if your state has a specific list, you should also look at that.
