You could report your findings and affix fieldnotes using the website or mobile app for Android-based tracking devices.

-**About Us**+{{url>http://locust.fo.am/zizim.html}}
-We are a group of patabotanists attempting to reinvigorate human-plant interaction. We come from a place where humans are accustomed to communication with the ‘planetary Other’, including our close neighbours from the domain of eukarya - plants and fungi. Some time ago, we discovered that we share portions of your digital networks, where we found something unbelievable: we were bamboozled by the lack of reciprocal understanding and non-communication between humans and plants, especially considering current environmental and cultural degradation. Hence, in August 2012 we embarked on a quest (code name Jiejing, aka Borrowed Scenery) to attempt to reestablish pathways between Earth-bound sentiences. To begin with, we plan to observe, collect and experiment with interactions between humans and plants in a dense urban environment. We chose a place that is large enough to include a diversity of habitats, while small enough for us to be able to do all our fieldwork on foot (as we are not accustomed to riding or driving machines). 
-During 2012CE we were based in Gent, Belgium and operated from a temporary lab in an abandoned candy store.
