Detailed descriptions

Where a key ends in a species description, tapping on that choice will reveal the detailed description page.  Alternatively, the description can be accessed from the Species List.

 

Tapping on a thumbnail image will select it and show the associated caption.  Tapping on the main image will display it full screen.

 

If the species description is long, the text can be scrolled.  Also, if there are many pictures, the thumbnail images can be scrolled left and right.
