Biodiversity of the Western Volcanic Plains Flora and Fauna Field Guide app

Discover the unique flora and fauna of the Western Volcanic Plains and map your own sightings in the field with Ecolinc's Biodiversity of the Western Volcanic Plains Flora and Fauna Field Guide app. Over 160 animals and over 250 plant species are comprehensively described, most with multiple images taken within the natural habitat of the species. Identifying animal calls are provided with distribution maps including both past and current sightings recorded by the Atlas of Living Australia.

This Field Guide app also provides the opportunity for users to map and upload sightings of any of the listed species within the Western Volcanic Plains, to contribute to a growing database of sightings of both common and threatened grassland species.
