In this paper we introduced Augmented Reality (AR) on Android platform for ubiquitous learning (u-learning). Android is breaking new ground for mobile computing and open technologies. Android is versatile as it is not limited only to mobile phones, but it can be installed on various devices. Android gives developers the opportunity to leverage their development skills, while also building an exciting and active community. Augmented Reality (AR) is going to be the future of most apps; all it takes is a decent processor, a camera, a compass and a GPS, all of which are becoming increasingly common on smart phones. Through AR we can have educational tools that provide individuals with total flexibility to receive, send, and review training and detailed product information through an increasingly ubiquitous web-enabled communication device. In this paper, we proposed Augmented Reality for Species Identification using Android Smartphone with augmented reality in species determination. This study is appropriate in the field of Biology. This is useful in outdoor experimental activities of the students. Like for example while they are visiting the zoo, botanical garden and etc.
