Look for the places to visit to see wildlife and the best of the nature of Dorset here in the sites database.
Announcement: New features
20th March 2013:
Today I release the latest version of the Nature of Dorset web-site which now has a graphical interface for accessing function. This is part of a number of measures I am introducing to make the site more accessible to users of mobile devices such as the Ipad and the Iphone; however, users with a mouse or a finger-pad will, hopefully, also find this new approach easier to use than conventional menu tabs and data tables.
Incorporated in to this new approach is something I have had in mind for some time; a logical, structured, species identification system for Dorset animals and plants. By starting with a simple choice between animals and plants and following the sub-page choices down four levels I hope you will come to a conclusion on the animal or plant that you are trying to identify. This is very much work in progress and I hope it will improve as I refine it. Feed-back on how helpful, or otherwise, you found it would be appreciated as it will help me improve the process.
