What is it?
This page allows you to edit the data for an organism for a visit including the species, comments about the sighting, and identification confidence.
There are three items you can edit associated with an organism record for a visit:
TSN (Taxonomic Serial Number): click on the TSN/ Scientific name link to change the organism associated with the record. This is useful is you have subsequently better identified a species (e.g., you knew the genus but now also know the species)
Comments: type in comments about this sighting of the organism here
Confidence: select the identification confidence from the drop-down box. These include:
certain: complete confidence in whole identification
uncertain of variety: certain of identification to the variety, but not positive of variety
uncertain of subspecies: certain of identification to the species, but not positive of subspecies
uncertain of species: certain of identification to the genus, but not positive of species
uncertain of genus: certain of identification to the family level, but not positive of genus
uncertain of family: not positive of family identification
