Additional Identification Resources
There are a growing number of online and mobile applications that can help with identification of organisms. Some tools use image recognition to match what you have seen with possible choices. Other tools use crowdsourcing where a group of people look at your shared image and provide suggestions of what they think you've found. Here is a list of some of these tools. Contact Us and select "Learning and Education" if you have others we should know about.
