HOW IT WORKS:
Select plant characteristics that match the plant to be identified
Select any characteristic in any order, from almost 300 lists of characteristics
Characteristics defined, with detailed scientific illustrations
With each choice the list of possible plants shrinks, getting to one species with about 3 to 6 plant characteristics.
The app suggests lists based on ease of use, effectiveness, and remaining species
Confirm identifications by comparing with photos and/or descriptions
Plant book references with page numbers provided for each species
An interactive glossary of botanical terminology with scientific illustrations
Access to all data for each species
Alphabetize the species list by either common or scientific name or search by entering a name.

This app is a compact but complete, easily portable version of our comprehensive plant ID software for PCs, and are thereby subsets of the largest and most extensive database of plant characteristics produced anywhere. We sincerely appreciate the individuals, agencies, and institutions over the years that have graciously allowed us to include their copyrighted plant photos in our programs. Even with over 250 sources of photos, not all are of the highest quality. They are the best available and are included here for the help they provide in obtaining and confirming correct identifications.
