What Wildbook should this feature be in?
What would you like to see?
I’ve been using GiraffeSpotter for a number of months now and Im very happy with it. Something that I had noticed from the start was: when submitting encounters and selecting the respective species, some sub-species are shown but the one I am focussing on (Thornicroft Giraffe) is not.
There is still some uncertainty about the taxonomic classification of the Thornicroft Giraffe - But according to a new study it seems to be its own sub-species (just like the Angolan giraffe for example, which is implemented in GiraffeSpotter)
Here the study
Raphael T. F. Coimbra, Sven Winter, Vikas Kumar, Klaus-Peter Koepfli, Rebecca M. Gooley, Pavel Dobrynin, Julian Fennessy, Axel Janke
„Whole-genome analysis of giraffe supports four distinct species”
So far I had always used ‘Giraffa tippelskirchii’ for my encounters but I thought I’d ask you whether you can / want to implement G. t. thornicrofti aswell.
How would this functionality help you?
I am actually not quite sure it this request belongs under ‘Feature requests’. If not, I would appreciate if you could forward me to the correct forum.
