The Traces Project is designed to capture the many signs and signals that are left behind by animals or plants or any organism. They are like cryptic clues left behind by unknowns and we can try to solve who left what. The signs may be markings in the sand or scats dropped by the animal or a half eaten and chewed leaf or a protruding fruiting body of a fungus that lives underground. So whenever you see a tracks or traces - photography them and upload them into this Project.

    There's a little bit of uncertainty over which Xanthomelon is present in Townsville but I will leave it at X. distractum for now
