You may wonder how this EcoTypes site works! Here is some information, and below are recent updates:
- The site once resided on Lewis & Clark’s Digital Scholarship (DS) multisite, a WordPress-based initiative for which Lewis & Clark’s Environmental Studies Program played a key role. It now resides on jimproctor.us, Prof. Jim Proctor’s domain.
- Site functionality and display have been enhanced via Toolset-based custom post types, Beaver Builder-based templates, and other WordPress plugins.
- The EcoTypes survey, and live survey charts displayed on this site, are done via secure, customized Google Forms and Google Sheets. The quick themes survey [offline as of January 2021] was done via Formidable Forms.
- Related references are managed via a Zotero group library, and dynamically inserted on EcoTypes axis and other pages on this site.
- There is some capitalization that deviates from standard usage. In general, each axis or theme is capitalized (e.g., Aesthetics or Place) to denote its use on the EcoTypes site.
- The front page image, and background image on the EcoTypes axis and main theme pages, are based on publicly-available Ansel Adams photographs, including “The Tetons and the Snake River” (1942), and “McDonald Lake, Glacier National Park” (1942). (And thanks to Jenn Bernstein for the idea.)
