Issues come out in September, October, November/December, January/February, March, April and May.
NOTE: This app requires an active internet connection.
Created for the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), the guide is also full of useful information about each park such as major sites within it, directions, hours and fees, links, and phone numbers to make reservations or get more information.
The NPCA National Parks Field Guides will help you do all sorts of things--- find out what species of bird you just saw on the beach in Cape Cod, learn what grizzly bears eat for dinner in Denali, know when porcupine mating season begins in the Shenandoah or identify the trees you find in Yosemite.
It's comprehensive-- all native birds and animals are included, along with photos, in-depth descriptions, audio, field marks and more. Users can also search for Endangered Species or Poisonous/Dangerous species native to any of the 100 national parks featured.
The 100 parks included are a representative sampling of the hundreds of parks in the national park system that support critical wildlife habitat – from seashores and recreational areas to riverways and historical sites.
Intended for novices and experts alike, the guide’s design and content selection maximize its accessibility and ease-of-use so that users can easily find within the guide the wildlife they are most likely to encounter. No other field guide matches the content and capabilities of this mobile field guide.
The field guide was developed for the National Parks Conservation Association by eNature.com. At the heart of this mobile app is eNature’s comprehensive, geographically segmentable database of U.S. wildlife, both animals and plants. eNature.com’s core content of wildlife information includes almost 6,000 individual species and originated with the same data set used to create the printed Audubon Field Guides. All the data has been carefully reviewed and vetted by leading biologists, zoologists and other natural history specialists. eNature.com has consistently been one of the Internet's most-visited sites for nature and wildlife information and has won numerous awards and accolades.
"Find out exactly how bad the light pollution is." (Chandra Clarke, citizensciencecenter.com)
"The app couldn't be easier to use, and you can even learn different constellations along the way." (Nicholas Fordes, plos.org)
The Loss of the Night app turns your eyes into a light meter, allowing you to become a citizen scientist and report how bright the night sky is where you live!
In many parts of the world, the night sky shines with wasted artificial light from poorly designed street lamps. Skyglow outshines the stars in the skies, and dramatically changes the natural nighttime environment. Scientists are concerned that light pollution might have a big impact on nocturnal ecosystems, but they have very little information about how bright the actually sky is worldwide, or how skyglow is changing over the years.
You can help monitor skyglow using this app! It's based on Google's Sky Map, and lets you make measurements with a very sensitive, stable, and well understood light meter: your eyes! All you need to do is look for certain stars in the sky, and tell us whether you can see them or not. Using the Loss of the Night app is both fun and educational, and it also generates important scientific information that might help to protect the environment in the future.
After you've finished your measurement, your data will be anonymously sent to the GLOBE at Night project (http://www.GLOBEatNight.org), where you can see it on a map and compare it to other observations from around the world. Counting stars is a great experience and family activity, and you might find that you learn the names of stars and constellations without even trying. Students can use the app to measure skyglow and star visibility for their own science projects, and at the same time be part of a global citizen science network.
The most important information for this project comes from brightly lit places where you can't see many stars, but you're welcome to use it in places where you can still see the Milky Way. If you’re lucky enough to be in such a place, let others know!
Satellites look at the ground, not the sky. By comparing the skyglow to the ground brightness, you will help communities learn what types of lamps light the streets instead of the sky. Hopefully in the future, cities will save energy and money, while having appropriately lit streets, dark bedrooms, and a sky once again full of stars.
Lots more information, including details of preliminary results, is available on the project blog: http://lossofthenight.blogspot.com
You are welcome to get into contact with the light pollution researchers from Verlust der Nacht that built this app, and learn about their other projects (http://www.verlustdernacht.de). The app also provides some basic information on the history, importance, and consequences of artificial light at night.
This project was sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Germany).

The Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) at the University of Tasmania has partnered with research institutes across the country to help monitor species distributions in the marine environment. Citizen scientists - fishers, divers, boaters and beachcombers-can contribute their knowledge of the seas to help monitor Australia’s vast coastline. The citizen science data collected highlights regions and species that may be experiencing important distribution changes, so that research can be focused into these areas.
Inspiring Australia and NSW Government Environmental Education Trust Fund provided funding (with support from IMAS and the University of Newcastle) for the development and production of a beautiful and easy-to-use tool allowing photo sightings of unusual marine sightings for any particular area to be submitted to Redmap. The app also contains information on Redmap species that are highlighted in each coastal region as those that are important to look out for. The species information provided includes pictures and basic biology as well as distribution maps.
The app also allows individuals to build their own map and catalogue of submitted sightings (sightings will appear on the public website after verification by our science team).

Welcome to Toca Lab! Explore the colorful and electrifying world of science and meet all 118 of the elements from the periodic table.
Discover elements by experimenting with the lab tools!
* Take your element for a spin in the centrifuge.
* Warm them up in the Bunsen burner.
* Put the element on ice with the cooling agent!
* Add a drop or two of mysterious liquids from the test tubes.
* Change their voltage and make them magnetic with the oscilloscope.
Each element has it's own personality. In Toca Lab, what does Neon sound like? Is Gold heavy or light? Is Nitrogen squishy or hard? Explore, inspect, and study each one and let us know! Can you find all 118?
The time has come, future scientists, to head into the lab to explore and discover. Put on your lab coat and protective eye gear because things are about to get experimental!
Toca Lab is a place for playing and having fun, and with it we hope to inspire kids to explore science. While the periodic table in Toca Lab is accurate, the way new elements are created is not. Instead, it’s a fun way to experiment, discover and create curiosity in the world of science. Toca Lab is just a starting point for further exploration!
