This e-guide to the birds of Great Britain and Europe is part of a series of mobile systems for identifying species in nature. They were developed as part of the EC KeyToNature project aiming to provide easy access to flora and fauna information.
This app contains:
- Information on 448 species of birds (distribution, habitat, food, etc.)
- 1360 photographs
- The sounds of 435 species
- An interactive key for identifying species
- An alphabetical list of species with a search function
This application is an adapted mobile version of the CD-ROM ‘Birds of Europe’, published by ETI, Netherlands (ISBN 90-75000-98-7). In addition to this e-fauna, other e-guides covering plants, butterflies, fish, reptiles and amphibians are available or in preparation.
