It is developed by scientists from four French research organisations (Cirad, INRA, Inria and IRD), and the Tela Botanica network, with the financial support of Agropolis fondation.
Among other features, this free app helps identifying plant species from photographs, through a visual recognition software. Plant species that are well enough illustrated in the botanical reference database can be easily recognized.
This app works on more than 4100 species of wild flora of the French territory, the species list is available through the application. The number of species and the number of images used by the application evolve with contributions of end users to the project.
It doesn't allow the identification of ornamental plants. It works even better than the pictures submitted are focused on one organ. Pictures of tree leaves on uniform background provide the most relevant results.
If you correctly identify a species, you can participate to the project by submitting your observation with the "contribution" button. These contributions subject to a moderation process will be validated collaboratively.

The identification process is not computer-based, it requires human involvement. Therefore each identification is paid using Google's in-app purchase. One plant identification costs 1 USD / 0.7 EUR. If we can't identify your plant, you don't pay anything.
Everybody gets one identification for free as a trial.
Our team will respond as soon as possible, but the identification usually takes minutes or hours. So far, we have been able to identify 90% plants in average.
Professionally made content, photo and convenient grouping of TREES!

Plants are characterized by the types and organization of the flower parts. Floral formula and floral diagrams represent the arrangements and classification of flower parts. You can learn and enjoy playing with floral families and their structures.
By using this app, you will be expected to sight-identify the plants to families, based on knowing and recognizing key characteristics of the families to which they belong.
Ideal for any gardener and those interested in plants!
Swipe left and right to look through plants in this easy to use and fast app. Press the info button to get a description of the plant, or get more descriptive information online.
Feedback gratefully appreciated! I'm looking to improve this app to make this a more effective tool

The App also allows saving of plant and pest favorites, easy sharing of screen shots, and a shortcut to search Google for more information on each plant. It is hoped that users of this App will have fun learning new plants and mapping their locations but also to come to better appreciate the complex relationships between plants, pests, and the environment that have evolved over millions of years and will search for the least detrimental way to control infestations.
This Lite Version will not allow uploading of images (scroll down to view the Pro Version).
Recognize the Ruellia, Safflower or a Hechtia in a picture.
More than 5000 plants are waiting to be discovered by the botany expert and plant-lover.
Mark your favorites in the slideshow. Use the filter symbol within the titelbar to filter plants either by favorites or by similar ones. Searching for a specific plant is also possible.
Choose the correct plant name out of four choices. Use hint to get further information on the searched plant. Use 50:50 to reduce from four to two choices or take a joker to skip a question.
Learn more about the plants in Wikipedia.
At the end of your knowledge question and answer session you will be evaluated.
Select number of questions in preferences menu. There you can also set filter on a certain plant class.
By deactivating the expert mode the questions are a bit easier (but still they are challenging!).
A fast internet connection is required so that the pictures can be streamed smoothly onto your device.
You can activate high image resolution within the settings menu. This increases data traffic.
There is also a premium version available.
The Biology Quiz
- includes the plant kingdom
- does not have advertising
- includes the animal kingdom (Zoology Quiz) and the fungi kingdom
- contains more than 10000 species
Please use the feedback option within the settings in case you have some question, problem or suggestion on the Plants Quiz. We are happy to hear from you.
What are you waiting for. Improve your knowledge with the Plants Quiz.
The app collects user-supplied information (text, photographs) about the problem and sends it to a professional plant pathologist with a Ph.D. and more than 20 years of experience in the science.
The user promptly receives live communications from the pathologist, including the probable name of the plant disease and causal pathogen, tactics for managing the disease, and contact information for local university experts who may be able to provide more information or examine samples in person.
Every year, plant diseases cause tremendous losses to plants and untold human suffering worldwide.
One must accurately and quickly identify the causes of disease in order to manage or control it properly.
Given the similarity of symptoms among diseases and the thousands of plant pathogens that can cause disease, expert diagnosis is needed in most cases to unravel the confusion and to provide clear direction.
Whether you are a home gardener or professional farmer, The Plant Doctor could save you the time and the money that you have invested in your plants.
