Tool name: 

Anymals+Plants

Description: 

An application running on Android that is linked directly to the databases of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). The mobile application enables recovery of data already available in the GBIF for a geographical area delimited by the user. It displays the species that have been spotted in the area, the observations made, and further data from Wikipedia. Amateur naturalists can thus complete the observations already made or add a species that has not yet been recorded.With anymals+plants you can also create your own mobile app for Android, iOS and Windows Phone 8.
