Smartphone App Gets Smart About Invasive Species


The new Midwest Invasive Species Information Network (MISIN) smartphone app is getting at the core of the invasive species problem in the Great Lakes. The app provides a mobile solution for capturing invasive species field observation data. With it, users can identify and report more than 300 invasive plant and animal species, browse images and species information on the top Midwest invaders, and play an important role in the early detection and rapid response to new invasive threats in your local area.

The MISIN app was developed by the Applied Spatial Ecology and Technical Services Laboratory at Michigan State University.
