More like a little under 200 genus species.
How many were on the Herpetology list last year?
I know for A+R there wasn't over 120 genus species.
Nerds rule. Nerds are awesome. Nerds will someday (soon) rule the world. And you know it.

2010. Be prepared. If not, you f(l)ail!

The 2010 birds list.

Looks to be about 180 genus species. It's quite a bit.

There were no genus species in Herps.
There were a little over 100 most specific taxons.

Yay! Will it say on the 2010 rules whether we get a binder for this event or not?

Of course it will otherwise how would you know?
I myself would assume you get some sort of resource but never having done the event befroe i wouldn't know as well.

I started working on the binder that I am hoping I will get to use during the competition.

I think they usually do a binder in the 1st year of events, so... Overall I kind of like not having a whole lot of resources, as it means you can just study harder than others.

My my, all the things that are wrong with this...
Last year was the first year in my (up until and including 2009) 5 years of olympiad, every single nature ID event has allowed a binder. I also know that before I was here, birds had a binder before forestry.

Also making a good binder requires an enormous amount of studying, and really differentiates teams based upon how much time they have put into their event and their binder. To say that not having resources makes you able to win by studying more easily is a fundamentally flawed statement.
