Life for pollinating insects such as bees, butterflies and moths is increasingly difficult, with many species numbers in decline. We are asking you to record the insects that visit your garden to build our understanding of which plants are most attractive to these insects. You will be participating in a Citizen Science project that will generate thousands of insect observations of the plants that pollinating insects like to visit. This app enables you to:â¢ Record details of the pollinating insects on your chosen plantsâ¢ Plot these results to see which of your plants is the most popularâ¢ Upload the data to our central databaseThe data you gather, along with the photos you take, will be used in a research project being undertaken by the University of Sussex. The Earthwatch Institute in association with Waitrose and The Crown Estate is facilitating this research. So what are you waiting for? Bee-friend your garden!

IveGot1 brings the power of EDDMapS to your Android. Now you can submit invasive species observations directly with your Android from the field. These reports are uploaded to EDDMapS and e-mailed directly to local and state verifiers for review. IveGot1 was developed by the University of Georgia Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health through a cooperative agreement with the National Park Service, in cooperation with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the University of Florida Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants. IveGot1 is more than just an app, it is an integrated invasive species reporting and outreach campaign for Florida that includes the app, a website with direct access to invasive species reporting and a hotline 1-888-IVEGOT1 for instant reports of live animals.Every year more than 85 million people visit Florida. However, people are not Florida's only visitors; Florida is also an inviting destination for invasive species that threaten to undermine the health of our environment. More than an inconvenience, invasive plants and animals can greatly alter our native landscape, adversely impact native wildlife, destroy agricultural crops and threaten our health. Invasions of exotic species cost Floridians over $500 million each year. The economic costs are small compared to the ecological ones. Florida has millions of acres of public lands; these lands furnish us the water we drink, the air we breathe and countless recreational opportunities. These public lands are highly vulnerable to invasion by exotic plant and animal species; it is estimated that more than 1.7 million acres of Floridaâs natural areas have been infested by invasive species.By reporting sightings of invasive animals and plants, we can better assess the extent of the infestations and hopefully eradicate new infestations before they become huge problems such as melaleuca or Burmese pythons. The goal of IveGot1 is to make identification and reporting easy and efficient as possible.Features:Easy species reporting that captures your current location and allows you to submit an image of your sightings. IveGot1 allows for both online and offline reporting with reports saved on your phone for uploading when you have network connectivity.Images and information on Florida's worst non-native invasive animals and plants.Real-time point distribution maps centered on your current location.Get Involved - Join the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council or your local Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA) through the Florida Invasive Species Partnership.Powered by EDDMapS - The University of Georgia Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health's Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System. EDDMapS allows for real time tracking of invasive species occurrences using local and national distribution maps and electronic early detection reporting tools.
