iFlora is an app for the identification of plant species of the Flora of Great Britain and many European Countries.
With the innovative identification concept information of only few characters is often sufficient to identify a plant species. In difficult species group, in which identification may not be possible down to the species level the information in the fact sheets may include further characters and information.
For each species more than more 200 identification characters are available. In the app, identification characters can be selected from an intuitive user interface. The identification characters can be selected by tipping on clear icons in an arbitrary sequence until the plant is identified.
The identification with iFlora is quick and simple: iFlora even makes specific recommendations on the best identification characters. For example, only three simple characters may suffice to identify Yew (Taxus baccata).
In the apps, also comprehensive information on the plant species is available: scientific drawings based on historical floras, distribution maps, and information on species characteristics, systematics, and ecology.
Our main aim during the development of the app, was to allow a reliable and easy determination of European plant species. Hence, we consequently utilized the technical opportunities of smartphones so plants can be identified with only little botanical expert knowledge.
