Field Notes
Last year I found Oriental Bittersweet and I'd published, but there wasn't enough evidence to prove it was Oriental Bittersweet. So, this species survey is about finding the Oriental Bittersweet again. This is Oriental Bittersweet because the berries have three yellow skins around them, and that the leaves are flat instead of folded. The berries are all along the line instead of having the berries at the tips like American Bittersweet.

I think the pictures could have been a little clearer and you could have gone into a little more detail. But otherwise, awesome job! :)

Okay, I was in a hurry at the time. Thanks!

Hi, I really liked your photos but I feel that you could have added a part about what the location was like where you found it, I realize that you put upland developed areas but that was the day like? One last thing is that your observation is Info picture is sideways, but your evidence is really good and accurate. Please don't take this the wrong way, Just want to help :)

Okay, thanks!
