ZipcodeZoo.com - Online field guides to the plants and animals of the world, with photos, sound recordings, and distribution maps.
ZipcodeZoo.com aspires to be a useful Field Guide to plants
and animals of the world. Often, to be useful, a field guide must have a sense
of where you are and what might be found there. For every professional naturalist
who has made a positive identification of some species, there are 10,000 amateurs
wondering what they have just seen. There are many books to assist in the
task of identification, but most cover species of a wide geographic range
-- "Birds of America" -- even though most species occur in smaller
geographic ranges. If you are trying to identify something you have just seen,
the grand book of everything is too much. Too much information can be cumbersome.
For identification, a good field guide could be localized to your back yard.
There are many species that look the same, and can be distinguished only by
genetic analysis or by knowing where they were found. If your Field Guide
contains many finches or salamanders that could not possibly be found in your
back yard, it increases your chance of a misidentification. Too much information
can sometimes mislead. ZipcodeZoo.com is working toward being able to provide
information about the animals of a specific area. We will succeed when you
can make a list all species that might be found in any specific spot in the
world, without strays that could not be found there. Ideally, such lists would
be sensitive to the probability of being found in a given spot, not merely
whether it might/might not be there.
