SBC LTER kelp forest field guide is an iPhone app
This new application is a free field guide to 150 algae, plants, fish and invertebrates that inhabit the unique ecosystem of the Pacific Ocean kelp forests. Students, divers and nature lovers will learn about the amazing inhabitants of the California coast and Channel Islands kelp forest ecosystem. The app was a collaborative effort of UCSB Marine Science Institute and Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, using data and imagery from SBC LTER. Coding was provided by Citrix Systems. The app is available from the iTunes store under "california kelp forest", and plans are underway for a version for the iPad and Android operating systems as well.
