Botanist Using Apple iPad In The Field

Below is a photo of botanist David Werier using his iPad in the field to look at plant manuals he has stored on it.  David says it saves him a lot of weight and he can carry many references that would have been impossible to bring in the field in the past.  It has a protective case and a clear plastic cover over the glass.  We were puzzling over a plant in a gorge in the Finger Lakes and it only took a few seconds for David to find the key characters in a manual he has stored on it. He doesn’t use it to enter data and he hasn’t dropped it in the water yet! – Steve Young
