The Outsmart Invasive Species project is a collaboration between the University of Massachusetts Amherst, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (MA DCR) and the Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health at the University of Georgia.
The goal of the project is to strengthen ongoing invasive-species monitoring efforts in Massachusetts by enlisting help from citizens. The web- and smartphone-based approach enables volunteers to identify and collect data on invasive species in their own time, with little or no hands-on training.
By taking advantage of the increasing number of people equipped with iPhone or digital camera/web technology, this approach will expand the scope of invasive-species monitoring, and is an effort to help control oubreaks of new or emergent invasive species that threaten our environment.

I'm sorry but I can't use your app because the icon is an insect and the load screen is an insect. Then there's some menu picture of an insect. Creeps me out. Sorry. Just wanted to give you the feedback in case you make a bug free version. I just wanted it for the invasive plants... I'll get a friend without insect-phobia to download it to use instead of me!
