Orientation, Guidelines, Discussion[edit]


Bloom clocks work by keeping track, over several seasons, of what plants are found blooming at a particular time of year.

The early results are simply the order in which plants bloom.

Later results can be interpreted to yield a system which can match up bloom cycles to periods in the calendar year in different regions.

The bloom clock makes extensive use of templates.

Entry creation templates[edit]

Page creation templates[edit]

Included templates[edit]

Taxa level[edit]
Identification characteristics[edit]
version tracking[edit]

Versions of the Bcp3 templates are tracked using these templates. They are blank, but can be modified to include categories in order to impliment a DPL search for older versions requiring updates. See Template versions for details.


Plant log pages use a large number of categories (eventually there could be hundreds of categories on each log).

Descriptive categories[edit]

Temporal categories[edit]

Regional categories[edit]

Text-based Clocks[edit]

Main Clock Pages[edit]

  • Temperate clocks go by season.
  • Other clocks (wet/dry season, etc.)... we don't have these yet.

User-specific Clock Pages[edit]

  • Users who add multiple entries at once may want to consider using personal clock pages to avoid edit conflicts (since it can take a while to sign under all the plants).

Plant Logs[edit]

  • Plant logs (pages using the prefix "BCP/") are the eventual target for all data. These pages are also used in a manner similar to templates on the visual based clocks.
  • Plant logs may eventually be placed in hundred of categories, in order to construct the visual clocks.

Visual-based Clocks[edit]

  • Regional and seasonal clock pages organized by flower color, plant type, and the time of year a plant blooms. These pages are created using DPL.
