Is this actually in the rules? I know in Fossils identification to higher taxa in general are common.
I mean it's not, but it's not very common to only answer higher classification in Herp unless it's like comparing two organisms.
Agree that it's uncommon, but imo still worth studying.

I think this category is changing to Ornithology for division b, does anybody have a rule sheet and bird list so I could potentially get a head start for next year.

https://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/Ornithology/Bird_List this is the page from the wiki you could probably also find the rules somewhere online.

https://www.soinc.org/learn/trial-events just do ctrl+F and search for ornithology, the most recent rules and list should be there.
Two years ago I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, freshwater, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I know stuff about oceanography, saltwater, birds, and fossils, yay for the third time!

If you can find 2010/2011 rules, it's also similar.

Since it's technically illegal to distribute rules online in years they weren't previously available in, I wouldn't be advising people to do that here.

I never said online :P If a team has existed for around 9 years, then they should have them.

Oh. That's true, I guess. But I still think it would be better to use the trial rules for this year since they're the newest available and they're officially from SOINC.

Hi everybody,

Our team is going on to state from regional, so I have decided to improve my notes.
Besides class/order/suborder
there are 80 fact sheets for NC.

I have many questions for the formatting of fact sheets:

1.What should we include in the family fact sheets that dont include genuses on the official list?
2.What should we include in the family fact sheets that do?
3.What should we include in the genuses?
4,Do we have to know the species of each genus thats on the list?
5.Do we even have to make genus fact sheets?
6.Which should have more information, genus or family?

Thanks!
