The project was funded by the National Science Foundation-sponsored Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship in Rapid Environmental Change, or REACH-IGERT, at UC Davis.
From Melissa Whitaker on iTunes, http://itunes.apple.com/,
"The Butterfly Guide provides an interactive field guide to over 100 butterfly species in the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento Valley & San Joaquin Delta. This app is meant for students, scientists, amateurs, educators, nature-lovers, and anyone who wants a tool for understanding and recording the entomological beauty of our region."
David Waetjen, a Web developer with the UC Davis Information Center for the Environment will work on the second phase of the app, in which users will be able to upload photos and notes to the public database.
