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.

Environmental Weeds of Australia has been developed to assist with the identification of weed species that invade natural habitats. It is a valuable resource for all those concerned about environmental weeds: weed and biodiversity researchers, trainers, advisors, weed control officers, environmental community groups, weed management practitioners, and anyone with an interest in environmental weeds.
While Australian focused, this key provides an excellent resource to users in other countries. Both plain English and botanical terms (usually in brackets) are used throughout the App to make it applicable to as wide an audience as possible.
At the core of this App is an interactive Lucid identification key to 1020 plant species that are either significant or emerging environmental weeds in Australia. To help confirm the identification of weed species the app provides over 10,000 photos and a wealth of information on each weed species and how to distinguish between very similar species. In many cases, links are provided to websites that have relevant information about the management of specific weed species.
En "Arboles Ibericos" se pueden encontrar las especies de árboles autóctonas de la Península Ibérica (incluyendo España y Portugal), así como las más frecuentemente cultivadas en el medio natural, tanto en parcelas para su explotación como en zonas ajardinadas o recreativas.
No precisa de conexión a internet, por lo que puede consultarse en cualquier momento y lugar. Contiene 64 géneros y 116 especies con su descripción, hábitat, claves de identificación, cerca de 1000 fotografías, etc.
Contenidos: Pablo Galán Cela, Roberto Gamarra Gamarra y Juan Ignacio García Viñas.
The contents include:
- 118 species: all the native trees as well as those which most frequently become established in the wild in Andorra, continental Portugal, peninsular Spain and the Balearic Islands. Each species entry includes a distribution map, a brief description and one or more photos.
- 2 different ways to search (directed and open), which the user can choose between to intuitively identify species.
- More than 300 illustrations that facilitate species identification.
- Around 400 photos showing the most characteristic details of each species.
- A glossary containing more than 80 terms.
Arbolapp does not need an internet connection to work, making it really useful for trips into the natural environment. Its contents are aimed at anyone wanting to learn about or increase their knowledge of the trees they find in their surroundings. For this reason, an effort has been made to use understandable language and simple explanations without dumbing down the content.
Arbolapp has been developed by the most important Spanish research association, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), through its Deputy Vice Chair of Scientific Culture and the Royal Botanic Garden. It is also funded by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT).
La identificación se basa en claves dicotómicas a partir de la observación de las características morfológicas de los vegetales (hojas, ramas, flores, ...).
Siguiendo las diferentes opciones se llega a la determinación de la especie. En este punto, la aplicación nos redirige a la wikipedia, donde podremos constatar que, efectivamente, se trata de nuestra especie y visualizar más ampliamente sus características.
The local database, allows you to access content always important. You will need Internet access to view additional content, and also need the GPS to find your current location and easy access to power trees.
The contents of the application will grow with time.

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.
As it turns out oil is made from prehistoric plants, not dinosaurs (childhood ruined!). Woodland Fuel calculates the number of trees you used on any given journey and presents the information in a fun and relatable way.
All you need to know is how many miles you did and your average miles-per-gallon (it also works for you sensible people using kilometeres, just don’t mix and match miles and kilometeres-per-gallon or it may blow up and end the world, or just throw an error and crash, we’re not entirely sure as we were too scared to test it).
If you’re interested in the science that went into Woodland Fuel check out the Mystral Design blog where we’ve given a complete write up.
Woodland Fuel is and always will be completely free, but if you do like it please consider making a donation to a charity instead. We recommend the World Land Trust Save A Habitat.
There is also a super top-secret feature hidden waiting to be discovered (ok it’s not really that super top secret, hint: who are we?).
P.S. We should need to say this, but Woodland Fuel is for fun and entertainment, and although there is a fair amount of research and science. In other words if you use this for any serious scientific work, don’t blame us if it all goes wrong and you blow something up.
