The MISIN smartphone app provides a mobile solution for the capture of invasive species field observation data. You can play an important role in the early detection and rapid response to new invasive threats in your area by contributing invasive species observations to the MISIN database.
Report invasive species observations for both plants and animals.
Browse a species catalog of over 400 invasive species critical to the Midwest.
Simple field data collection allows you to report without extensive data submission.
The purpose of the MISIN app is to aid in the collection of Midwest invasive species observations in support of early detection and rapid response efforts. Your contributed data will be added to a growing online database of invasive species observation data for the top invaders in the region. This data can be browsed through the MISIN website (https://www.misin.msu.edu) and is used by land managers to help make informed decisions regarding the control and impact of invasive species.
