Symbol Creation Service / Indo-Pacific coral reef fishes
« Last post by chelsealwood on September 28, 2012, 07:35:14 pm »
Hi there,

I would be so grateful for symbols of these common Indo-Pacific coral reef fish species:

Darkfin hind (Cephalopholis urodeta)
Arc-eye hawkfish (Paracirrhites arcatus)
Whitecheek surgeonfish (Acanthurus nigricans)
Bluespotted bristletooth (Ctenochaetus marginatus)
Bicolor chromis (Chromis margaritifer)
Bartlett's anthias (Pseudanthias bartlettorum)
Golden gregory (Stegastes aureus)

Your readers might be interested in my new blog, The Scientist Videographer, where I am providing free tips, tutorials, and reviews designed to encourage and teach more scientists to create their own science videos and share their knowledge with the world:


I'm a scientist who has been developing videos for several years now to illustrate my research and that of colleagues and am now at a point where I would like to share my experience with other scientists interested in science communication beyond the traditional means (journal articles and conference presentations).

Some time ago me and my colleague Marianne Fernagut prepared a survey on the use of graphics (charts, maps, diagrams) to communicate environment and sustainable development. It has taken us a long time to summarize the results and responses that we got, but it is finally done! We still believe that the results are relevant, even though time has passed.

The results have now been published in a short report, and they provide an interesting picture of these users' needs and capabilities in terms of preparing illustrations and using graphics for the communication of information related to climate change, environmental issues and sustainable development.

We received more than 300 responses to the survey, and the results have been summarized in an 18-page report.

Apologies for the delay, and a big thanks for everyone that responded!
The survey closed in May 2010, and the results are available in an 18-page report, found at http://nordpil.com/survey
Symbol Creation Service / Coffee Bush

I am interested in representing watersheds dominated by coffee farms. It will be really helpful to have coffee plants. Here are a couple of pictures from the internet that may be helpful.

Symbol Creation Service / elk calf hiding

I would also like to request an elk (Cervus elaphus) calf, hiding. The offspring of elk and many other large herbivores often hide in the shrubs during the first weeks of life. In the Rocky Mountains, there are a number of ecological stories and studies that revolve around the influences of climate and predators on elk reproduction, thus such an image would be very useful.
Symbol Creation Service / wolf

I would like to request a wolf symbol. I saw that you have a coyote, but not a wolf, and since this species features in many ecological studies and stories, I think it would be really useful. For my purposes, a side view of a grey or black wolf (something like the attached) would be most useful. I will attach a couple possibilities.
This would be most useful to me in the coming weeks, but it looks like you might be sort of swamped! Ah well, they will be useful later too.
Thanks very much,
Thank you very much for your help, Adrian.  --Maria

I understand that you have also been in contact with Suzanne Bricker about this - she will be your best bet in obtaining any other data you are looking for.

I don't believe so.  The spreadsheet has phosphorus and nitrogen LOADS coming into the estuaries (river inputs) and also phosphorus and nitrogen concentrations for the OPEN OCEAN adjacent to the estuaries.  I am looking for phosphorus and nitrogen CONCENTRATIONS in the ESTUARIES.  --Maria
