What
:
A BioBlitz is an event where a group of volunteers or students collaborates with experts -- both professional and amateur—to inventory as many species as possible present in a specified area over a 24 hour period.
The idea was pioneered by Peter Alden and Edward O. Wilson on 4th July 1998 when a team of scientists and naturalists identified over 1900 species at the Walden Pond Reserve outside Boston, MA.
