It's been a while since I needed to use Natureserve.  I used to be able to print a list of species in a given watershed, or a list of watersheds where a named species cold be found.  Apparently you have to pay for that now??  Any idea what the cost is?  This is really a shame, information is less and less obtainable for amateur naturalists.  And the cost of reprints on JSTOR.  It's a crime.

If you need copies of the literature take advantage of sci-hub.cc If you have the correct DOI you're in business. And you don't have to be able to read Russian to make it work. You didn't hear it from me.

Have you registered for a password on NatureServe? It doesn't cost anything.

I don't remember Bruce, I'll try that.  Fishmap does not give me what I need.  I am familiar with sci-hub, I posted it on FB a while back, or it might have been here, I can't remember.  I couldn't find what I wanted there.

Fishmap was originally built off Natureserve data - I might be able to add anything you are looking for. Just let me know.

I like this attitude. Fishmap didn't provide what you wanted Martin, but Ryan is open to suggestions. Your input can only make this project better, so what were you looking for? This Fishmap thing is really exciting, and your input matters. Good stuff.
