LifeList tracks the plants and animals you've seen, where you've seen them, and when you've seen them. You'll find an "Update My LifeList" option at the bottom of pages. All you need do is register before using it.

Quiz is now here in beta, with more to come. Test your skill matching the bird, mammal, fish, or amphibian with the sounds it makes. Quiz also includes a dozen interactive crossword puzzles that will challenge and build your vocabulary. Future versions will allow you to practice your species identification skills and learn interesting facts about plants and animals.

Key: The Beta version of Key is now ready for you to try. For any plant or animal that you want to identify, simply click the Key button on the top of any page, and work your way through Kingdom, Phylum/Division, Class, Order, and Family. When you decide what Family your species belongs to, you will see a list of species. For those species in your neighborhood, you will see this icon next to the species name. Users of Key must register, so that Key knows what species to identify as "local". This beta version is functional, but will be improved with additional text and photos in the coming weeks.
