HI people! I was thinking now when we have about 1300 members it would be nice to organize projects in which could participate all members. Eg . endemic species!! It would be nice project.Or general flora&fauna of my country Each could present his country ! Another project could be statistic- like distribution of specific hereditary disease. You could get information about your country and post it. That would be interesting. And members from bioinformatics could design world map so you could just click on the country and see it’s flora&fauna&distribution of hereditary diseases etc………..NICE PROJECTS that don’t need much time(I hope). One could be coordinator, other menthor and we need lector of course ….Just present your country!
Let’s start scientific career!LOL! 😆 😆 😀
but I’m serious about that above.

God you have some strange ideas…

I agree with Andrew. This idea is reallly stange.

Yah it is strange, however it is a respectable idea

How do you know if there are more people from your region with whom you could some projects..? For instance is there anybody else from the netherlands?
June 8, 2005 at 4:12 pm #24044
I just thought maybe we could be creative but if there is none who wish to participate…. 😥quote har0bed1813:
That’s the point! One who whish to join will tell his location in this topic(if it’s not written) and send pm to members from same country. Now if u are alone, u could do project for ur country alone if u wish or u could give up. See the point is that most sites and books about flora and fauna of your country is on native language …. also it would be nice to have all informations you need on the same place-here eg.
It’s not obliged! but would be nice to fill world map.
Time is not limited, but it would be nice to finish project in a year.
Also you can write 5 sentences or 100 but it would be nice to include all relevant data.
For now theme is flora&fauna of my country.
Let’s start!Who’s in? 😀

Filling the world map is good but the fact is that the fields i like in bio are not related to my country, I mean as I don’t like botanics and zoology, I won’t be able to do something related to my country.

Not all members have access to laboratory…I also preffer molecular but THIS IS SOMETHING WE COULD DO TOGETHER!

I don’t mean to sound rude, but what do we need this? I mean is you want you can find the interesting things in a good book on the theme. Details are not even allowed in IBO, not to mention in regular school hours.
Example: we all know that dionea muscipulla(Venus fly trap) only lives in the US, but we don’t need to know about some species of musquito. Anyway if you guys think it is a good idea, go ahead. I doubt anybody would be interested in Romania’s vegetation and fauna anyway 😀
June 8, 2005 at 6:47 pm #24067
I agree with Andrew. But the ones who like those fields may be interested in this.

I think Zam wants to do some creative work with all [ or some of the ] forers ,We can have a different idea too, to work creatively and togather [ offcourse related to bio]
We can prepare “essentials of chemistry / physics /maths for biologists ” etc.

I guess none of us have much pride in our countries

hi! It’s just an idea 😥 . and Andrew the point is that u have all informations on the same place.It’s not obliged and time is not limited. When school ends, one who wants to participate can easy get informations about his country. BY planning this project I don’t think on IBO or regular school – the point of project and this whole forum is to learn something new. Watching Animal planet u get informations about some areas but not all. Well I’m in, and must say that this will be my first biogeographic project (only did molecular µ before). But we need more people if we want to fill World map. For now don’t lock the topic. Who’s in?
😀 I’m optimistic person!

I’d like to do something, but as I’m not even finished with highschool yet, I wouldn’t know what… Have got plenty of time though this summer. And nature is findable… hihi 😛
The point anyway is: I don’t know how to get started and get something usefull out of it.
June 11, 2005 at 10:13 pm #24378quote har0bed1813:
I’m in high school too. I think that you could start with endemic species(define identity of your country). U could also collaborate with geography teacher(of course and biology teacher) or someone who’s studying it-he should know characteristic biotopes of your country.As soon as school ends I’ll try in that way. I will also visit Biological University and National garden and zoo…
Also there are many interesting sites and books.
Here’s my mail so that we could exchange informations firstname.lastname@example.org or u could send me private message.
