Image requests (a.k.a. also card requests)

1 Image requests (a.k.a. also card requests) on Tue Feb 02, 2010 4:50 am

A place for specific requests of images needed for specific organism types, specific card types (i.e. habitat or environmental scenarios).

In particular, if you see something here, if you can post in a blog, put on facebook, twitter, whatever mode of communication you can muster to spread the request then so much the better.

I'll start. I would love to see a few trees.

Oh no... I sat there thinking "How do you make a card with a phylogeny???" scratch


I could try and get my artist friend involved -- she loves drawing trees!

Could make some sort of anthropomorphised gnarled mossy oak (ie with eyes)...

3 connecting with Encyclopedia of Life? on Tue Feb 02, 2010 3:39 pm

The Encyclopedia of Life, www.eol.org, has some kind of deal worked out with Flikr, so that people can post images to Flikr and they get used on the species pages.

Could there be some kind of collaboration between EOL and Phylomon? It seems like a natural combination.

The EOL idea is a great one, and I'll definitely fire off an email to their staff once our website is live. They have a ton of creative commons tagged photos which are excellent, and it makes sense for some crossover to occur.

On another note, we really need some PLANT images and some MICROBIAL drawings! Preferably in a mixture of different styles

5 US Government works as resources on Mon Mar 01, 2010 10:35 pm

A reminder that any work created by a division of the US federal government is, by law, free and open in the public domain. Happily, that includes the works of:

  • The CDC (http://phil.cdc.gov/phil/advancedsearchresults.asp) - Search for all images in the "organisms" category in the advanced tab; there are over 5,000. Includes many images of microscopic organisms, especially vectors of disease.
  • The US Fish & Wildlife service (http://www.fws.gov/digitalmedia)
  • The USDA (http://plants.usda.gov/gallery.html)
  • http://photogallery.nrcs.usda.gov/ might be of use for natural disaster cards, suburbia, etc.


Also, images from the Hubble Telescope are free for the taking from NASA. Nothing to do with Phylomon, but they make great desktop wallpaper!

What other environment cards do you think we will need outside of trees?

Ocean/coral/etc, mountain, desert, grassland, arctic? Should we define jungle-forest versus temperate-forest?

Free Public Domain Photo Database has really great pictures

We can also use the wikimedia commons database.
There are beautiful pictures:

What are some microrginisms that sould be in the game? I'm going to attempt drawing some since there seem to be none drawn yet.

Some plants I'd like to see:

White Birch Tree
Cape Sundew
Venus Flytrap
Common Bladderwort
Organ Pipe Cactus
Paddle Cactus
Artic Moss
Bearberry
Labrador Tea
Tufted Saxifrage
Caribou Moss
Red Algea
Showy Milkweed
Juniper
Ocotillo
Seaweed
Sea Anemone

And I'd love to see a Crown of Thorns Starfish

Really? Isn't coral also an animal?

We really should difine the forest better. What about the rainforest having a conopy, forest floor, ect. will we break it up or leave it as a whole. The Forest could also be broken up as deciduous and coniferous. Will we define the ocean as a whole or break it up into things like deep sea? And we can't forget ponds and places in peoples backyards/cities where certain species may thrive.

corals are also animals, yes.
I think it's totally necessary to break oceans up into things like deep sea.

alot of my fave ocean creatures are deep sea like Viper Fish, Vampire Squid, and I believe the Frilled Shark too.

Also, Algae and Seaweed do not actually belong to the Plant kingdom, they belong to the Protist kingdom.
