Guidelines for Bulletin submissions

1. Excursion reports
Compose in Word or plain text with minimum formatting. Species names in italics. No embedded images.
2. Images
Minimum 300k, but the larger the better. No need to crop them. Label with species name, description or location, abbreviated if necessary. Do not embed images in the document, submit as a separate file.
3. Species lists
List in Word, or in plain text. Do not submit in a Word table or in Excel. List in alphabetical order.

Plants are usually listed with Latin names in italics in the form Genus species followed by variety if applicable. Common names can be included if desired, but usually there is not room for family etc names.

Vertebrates, including birds, are usually listed with common name, although include Latin names if you wish. Invertebrates: list as Genus species if known, and/or family and common name if desired or applicable. Just remember that there is limited room and each item should fit onto a maximum two lines.
Sometimes there will be a particular reason to vary the species list guidelines, eg grouping larger numbers of invertebrates under common name category.
