The request for this thread listed it as a Division C event. The additional division has been added.

Hmm...does this mean that Herpetology will be an event next year? I wasn't sure if Invasives replaced Herp or not.

On the tentative SOSI schedule, it lists Herpetology, so I'd expect it's next. You can wait another two years for your birds :P .

If only it was entomology instead of herpetology...

Ok, so this is what the 2018 events seem to be (for those who don't want to decipher the schedule and read all the other relevant documents):

Biology
Anatomy & Physiology B/C (Respiratory, Digestive, Immune)
Disease Detectives B/C (Foodborne Illness)
Ecology B/C
Herpetology B/C (replaces Invasives)
Microbe Mission B/C

Earth Science:
Astronomy C (topic: my best guess is Type II SNe & Stellar Evolution, or something with Galaxies)
Dynamic Planet B/C (Glaciers)
Meteorology B (Climate)
Remote Sensing C (topic unknown)
Road Scholar B
Rocks and Minerals B/C
Solar System B (topic?)

Physics:
Hovercraft B/C
Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C (replaces Wind Power)
Optics B/C

Chemistry:
Crime Busters B
Forensics C
Chemistry Lab C (topic: Thermodynamics & something else, possibly Aqueous Solutions or Acids & Bases)
Materials Science C
Potions and Poisons B (replaces Food Science)

Technology:
Battery Buggy B (replaces Scrambler)
Mousetrap Vehicle C (replaces Electric Vehicle)
Wright Stuff B
Helicopters C
Towers B/C
Roller Coaster B (replaces Mission Possible)
Mission Possible C (replaces Robot Arm C)

Inquiry:
Experimental Design B/C
Write It Do It B/C
Fast Facts B
Undecided Event B (my best guess is that they're deciding whether to keep Bottle Rocket or rotate with something like Rotor Egg Drop, or another as yet untested event)
Undecided Event C (replaces Hydrogeology; my best guess is that it'll be a revised version of Technical Problem Solving)
Undecided Event C (replaces Game On; #FermiQuestions?)

For anyone familiar with the webcomic XKCD, there's a great cartoon about Herpetology/Ornithology. Google it - I'd post a link here but there's a bit of naughty language ;)

On the list of Amphibians/Reptiles, it states "Anolis Polychridae" but are we talking the same organism as "Anolis polyrhachis"?

Are you sure about Dynamic goin gto glaciers next year? This is the first year of earthquakes and volcano is here, so would it not go on for another year? Also, isn't fresh water systems on the next rotation before glaciers?

I'm fairly certain I heard somewhere that they've switched to a one year rotation and swapped the order of Glaciers and Freshwater; however I can't find the source.

for rosy boa and rubber boa, they list them as the same genus, when they aren't what should we do?
Thanks for your help
Happy to be here
