Field Guide Apps
This app holds descriptions of over 560 species encompassing birds, fishes, frogs, lizards, snakes, mammals, turtles, freshwater, marine and terrestrial invertebrates, spiders and insects including butterflies. From animals found on Queensland’s coral reefs, in rock-pools, in tropical rainforests, in deserts and in the suburbs, the habitats are hugely varied but only represent a tiny fraction of the true diversity of life in this large State. Our scientists will continue to add new species and refine this app over time.
This app was designed for those who love exploring the rocky shores, and muddy sand flats and mangroves, or simply enjoy strolling along the beach. We hope that it will provide some insight into the wonderful, but often little known creatures, with which we share our planet. The present edition contains about 540 species of invertebrate animals and marine plants that thrive in the intertidal and shallow subtidal zones. A similar future app will include the vertebrate species such as fishes, birds, marine reptiles and mammals.
