Taxonomist is the best way to discover taxonomy. Learn more about the origin of the species and their connections in a simple and visual way. This carefully designed app is a perfect complement for biology and natural science students. Give it a try and tell me what you think.
You're ready now, become a taxonomist!
Just type a scientific or a common name in the search bar and Taxonomist will display the requested info from the NCBI’s Taxonomy database.
Tap on any taxon in the lineage view to see more information about it without losing your current search result. Easy, fast and unlimited.
Want to hide taxon names? Or get rid of the taxa with no rank? No problem, reach the app settings to customize the UI to your needs.
Taxonomist has been developed using modern technologies (like Swift 3) and adopting most iOS accessibility features, including VoiceOver navigation and Dynamic Type, with the aim of making it useful for anyone and everybody. With this idea in mind, I've also made the Taxonomist's translation project public, so if you find a typo or want to participate translating the app into your language, you may do it via POEditor.
Moreover, TaxonomyKit, the open source library that powers Taxonomist is also publicly available on GitHub, so feel free to check it out if you have some ideas or want to use it in any other educational and/or scientific project!
