WILDLIFE GUIDE APPS
From the National Wildlife Federation, America’s oldest and largest wildlife conservation education organization, comes a series of comprehensive and interactive apps that bring field guides into the 21st century.
The National Wildlife Federation Wildlife Guides will help you discover the wild animals, plants and mushrooms of North America via 50,000 pages of expert-curated content, thousands of the highest quality professional photographs, maps, and drawings, and more than 4,000 bird, mammal, insect, and amphibian sounds.
Get all the apps and carry one of the richest field guide series in your pocket wherever you go with 24/7 access at your fingertips!
This authoritative and easy-to-use guide features 570 types of North American mushrooms, with nearly 700 photographs, text descriptions to help identify mushroom species, and robust search functions to aid in species identification.
Utilizing the latest iOS technologies, you can:
• Search by name (common and scientific) using either keyboard or verbal search systems; type or speak all or part of a mushroom’s name to search for its detailed account.
• Organize species alphabetically or taxonomically.
• Search by shape, habitat, region, color, size, time of year, mushroom structure—or any combination.
• Touch to open any or all of the text sections and to enlarge photos to aide with identification in the field.
• Take notes and upload photos to keep a digital journal of your observations and share them with family, friends, and our growing online community.
Each species account contains:
• description with identification details
• habitat description
• range information
• discussion about the species’ history, edibility or toxicity (if known), and other notable characteristics
• taxonomic Order information
• photos of similar species with links to those species’ accounts
• links to additional information for every species
