Individual Species Research

You have selected your focal species in LA River Species Selection discussion. In order to predict how LA River revitalization will affect your species you need to know something about the ecology and conservation status of your species. Time to do some background research! To answer the following questions you will need to search for credible sources of information using Google Scholar PCC library databases or other online resources such as iNaturalist or the Encyclopedia of Life. (You can find information in other ways but these are helpful places to get started!) Make sure that you cite all sources of information in the text of your responses and include the full citations in a literature cited section. You will also look at iNaturalist observations for your species to see where it is found globally and if it is common or rare in the LA River. Use these links to iNaturalist places for soft-bottom stretches of the Los Angeles River: Now that youve completed the research on your species include your responses to each of the questions above in a file (Word doc or pdf). Before submitting make sure that you have included all of the required sections: You will be submitting this assignment as a file upload. To see how this assignment will be graded scroll down to view the grading rubric. If no rubric is visible click on the three dots in the upper right corner of this page then click “Show Rubric”. If youre reviewing this assignment using the Canvas mobile app the rubric is included in the Grade tab. Requirements: 3or 5sentence for each question Los Angeles River – Elysian Valley Los Angeles River – Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve Title your submission with the common and scientific name of your species. Species ecology For each response you should have an in-text citation (author year) for the source of the information.What habitat types is this species found in?What are some of the abiotic factors that define this type of habitat?What is its role in the ecosystem? Does it have important biotic interactions with other species? (Does it utilize another species? Does it compete with another species?) What habitat types is this species found in? What are some of the abiotic factors that define this type of habitat? What is its role in the ecosystem? Does it have important biotic interactions with other species? (Does it utilize another species? Does it compete with another species?) Species range and status For each response you should have an in-text citation (author year) for the source of the information. To answer some of these questions you should look at and cite iNaturalist. To view global observations for your species on iNaturalist click on Explore then search for your species (without entering a location).What is the global distribution (species range) of your species. Is it observed world-wide or only found on certain continents?Are there large numbers of iNaturalist observations found globally or does it appear to be rare?What is the native range of this species? Is it native or introduced to to southern California?What is the conservation status of this species?If it is native to Southern California is it a species of conservation concern? Why or why not?If it is introduced how/why was it introduced and what makes the species successful outside of its native habitat?Note: Be sure to include a picture or screenshot of a worldwide map of observations from iNaturalist as evidence.

Species observations in the Los Angeles River To answer these questions you should look at and cite iNaturalist. To view the observations for your species in the two soft-bottom Los Angeles River sites click on the links for each location above then search for your species in the Species search box.How many observations are there of your species in the soft-bottom sections of the river? Based on these data do you think your species is common or rare in the soft-bottom sections?Where in these sections of the river is this species found? Are the observations widespread in these sections of the river or does the species seem to occur only in a certain area (such as on banks in the water etc)?Note: Be sure to include a picture or screenshot of a map of iNaturalist observations in the two soft-bottom stretches of the Los Angeles river as evidence.
