There is an app for that!

What do you do if one of your Cubbies ask, "Mr. Wilson, what kind of tree is that?"

Unless you are traveling with Bob Rheinhardt or Joel Richardson, who knows all of that stuff, you might not have an answer.

But, there is an app for that!

"Scientists have developed the first mobile app /to identify plants by
simply photographing a leaf. /The free iPhone and iPad app, called
Leafsnap, instantly searches a growing library of leaf images amassed by
the Smithsonian Institution. In seconds, it returns a likely species
name, high-resolution photographs and information on the tree's flowers,
fruit, seeds and bark."
