Articles I've started or expanded
Tasks I'd like to accomplish
- Generally fill in gaps and build out the pages for American ornithologists, botanists, and other naturalists, especially women.
Leon J. Cole's article could use some references and rewrite. The article for Robert Ridgway is flagged for insufficient inline citations; I have read Lewis's new biography and am working on the article now. I left some notes on the talk page for Stuart Keith.I recently worked on Florence Augusta Merriam Bailey and Elizabeth Gertrude Britton. Do some cleanup on Peter Swerling.
- There is a note on the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center article to make it more encyclopedic.
- I have some materials that could bolster the article on Huntley Meadows Park.
- Get a definitive spelling of John Livzey Ridgway's middle name.
- Master the layout of my userboxes.

- The Times obit for Herbert Zim obscures the distinction between the Golden Guides for younger readers and the field guides.
- Why is the entry for field mark nothing more than a stub?
- Why is there no reference for List of authors of names published under the ICZN? Maybe it's more complicated than the botany list. Is there indeed an authoritative list of author (abbreviations)? I see two Richardsons, for instance.
