These plants are spreading quickly across the UK. They displace native species and detrimentally affect the ecology of many vulnerable habitats. Some also pose a considerable threat to human health. These plants also present a large financial cost to the UK economy with the annual cost of all invasive, non-native species totalling some £2 billion.
The first step in tackling this problem is accurately determining where these plants are. In order to do that, we need your help! Please use this app to help us to build a comprehensive picture of the UK’s invasive, non-native plant species.

You can browse plants by families, genus, search by common name or scientific name, and state. The detail species page include major characters and distribute map, and linked to USDA web site for detail information.
You can use it in a field trip, write a note about a plant, take a photo using the phone camera, select a photo from the phone. It is all at your finger tip.
You can save the plant locations and later view all of them on a map.
You can also group them, and add various species into different groups for easy access.
Note: Data are from USDA plant database (2006), with 541 families, about 5000 genea, and 50,000 species. If have other data sources, please let me know. We can make it better. I am a plant lover too!
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.

The keys benefited from an unpublished key written by Dr. James Hardin and from keys presented by Brown and Brown (1972: Woody plants of Maryland, Port City Press) and Preston and Wright (1988: Identification of Southeastern Trees in Winter, NC Agr. Exp. Sta. AG-42). Nomenclature and taxonomic concepts follow Weakley (2010: Flora of the southern and mid-Atlantic states). A list of excluded species is included in the app. Images were captured by Dr. Jon Stucky and Dr. Alexander Krings, with additional contributions by Will Cook (Duke University), Dr. Paul G. Davison (University of North Alabama), and Jeffrey Pippen (Duke University).
