The 'Lookup Life' app is like having a complete natural history encyclopedia in the palm of your hand. More convenient than a heavy guide book, this handy app provides all the tools you need to identify thousands of different plants and animals.

The Lookup Life app is free to download for iOS, Android and Windows phones. The app works in conjunction with the 'ZipcodeZoo' database, which contains a vast amount of pictures and information about the natural world. The Lookup Life app contains a handy search function that allows you to identify an unfamiliar plant or animal by using a variety of distinct attributes, including location, appearance and the behavior of the species in question.

With information on millions of plants, animals and insects, the Lookup Life app functions as a pocket-sized natural history encyclopedia.
