An updated app allows visitors to the Greater Yellowstone Region a close-up introduction to the wildflowers and other plants of the area.
The app, called “Flora of the Yellowstone Region,” is designed for experts and beginners alike. Users will find more than 400 wildflowers, trees, shrubs and grasses.
Yellowstone officials say the guide presents plants in a clear, informative format with photos and botanical illustrations, description and field marks, and tidbits on individual plant's ecology and cultural use.
A new “favorites” feature allows the user to mark selected plants for future reference or share with friends and colleagues. Users can also test their wildflower knowledge by downloading the “Flora of Yellowstone” quiz.
The app is available for $7.99. A fully-functioning “intro” version is available as a free download.
