Since flora and fauna don't recognize political borders, should we? I would like to invite all those who live within this dwindling Beech-Maple Deciduous Forest biome (see map at http://www.backyardnature.net/ecogo.htm
), which includes Carolinian Canada, to discussions of common species, and perhaps get-togethers. I don't think we can legally exchange plants across the border, but we can sure swap our knowledge of species. The GG groups formed so far that are in this zone are: Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, Ohio, Toronto, London, Hamilton, and Windsor.
I think it would be really cool if we could all use natural biome borders instead of, or alongside our political ones. Plant local, think global.
