Pines to Vines – The Forest Biome

Review Excerpt: This poster-child example of what a tablet-delivered textbook can look like, Pines to Vines is a large (378 MB) stand-alone app, that mixes traditional text with interactive illustrations and dynamic maps. Content includes six chapters that introduce the concept of forests, and then examine different types of forests (e.g., tropical vs. boreal) as well as special types of forests, different types of wildlife, and threats to forests. The app was developed in collaboration with Oregon State University’s Department of Forestry.
