PLANT & ANIMAL
IDENTIFICATION

Our approach is this:

  1. Figure out an organism's identity
  2. Look up the name
  3. Store the information, keep adding to it, and organize so it can be easily retrieved

The result is that you start understanding things you didn't even know could be understood. It's grand stuff, and important, too, for those of us interested in getting involved in saving Life on Earth...

We have two approaches. Click on the one you want to try:
