Thanks! Now I just need to finish this dissertation so I can finish writing up the spatial ecology paper...

Really cool paper! I like how the authors describe four new lineages, but only propose elevating one of them to the species level. Green Salamanders rock!

The description of Aneides caryaensis—a new green salamander from the Hickory Nut Gorge of North Carolina! Here's one I was fortunate to see and photograph with a few years ago.

I did find that in my research, but it made me mad that the tz arg doesn't do it. I used the lubricate option out of spite.

What is sun time? "Animal activity patterns are in fact aligned to daylight intensity - in particular, sunrise, sunset and zenith - not to the time on your clock or GPS unit or camera (Nouvellet et al, 2012)."

Figured out why my code wasn't working. The tz argument in as.POSIXct() doesn't actually change the time zone. What does it do? Not sure. However, the lubridate function with_tz() DOES change the time zone. Result? My camera trap times are updated to better represent reality. 1/2

Hey! Are you a natural resource manager? Practitioner? Work for an NGO? Or do you work with managers? What conferences, if any do you/your practitioner colleagues attend? Please help me signal boost if you are able.

Thanks. I think sunTime uses SunCalc, so I'll just go to the source!

I'm not getting excited until it goes to the senate. Then I'll hold my breath.

Has anyone successfully used the sunTime function from the R package overlap? I can't seem to get it to work properly for my "America/Chicago" timezone data.

The results are in! 6 for magma (left), 17 for viridis (right). Thanks for your input everyone, the final figure will be improved based on your comments.

Someone recognized viridis!

Can you elaborate on that a bit? If I was to apply this scale to a topographic map, I would assume the yellow would be mountain tops, no?

That's really interesting, you're the second one to say that. The actual figure will have a very clear legend so people will not have to use their intuition.

I thought about that, but I don't have any zero values, and didn't want that to be misleading.
