Invasive Species App

The Midwest Invasive Species Information Network has launched an app for smartphone users to identify and report invasive species (over 170) with their smartphones.  The app gathers information about how many species are in the area and their density, as well as collects user pictures.  This is a great way to get involved and help scientists learn more about the spread of invasive species.  For more information, see the Great Lakes Echo article here and the MISIN website here.
