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).
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 Biodiversity Garden is a phytogeographic journey from America to Africa, Asia and Europe, as far as Oceania. At the same time, it is also a journey through the planet’s biomes, from tropical to sub-humid, temperate and arid zones. To show people the wealth of biodiversity preserved in every corner of the Earth, from the richest to the poorest, from the most protected to the most threatened.
In the Biodiversity Garden, with this app, a smartphone or tablet will become a tool for visitors to interact with the environment and plants. This app will be used to increase the possibilities for communicating and disseminating botanical knowledge, a natural evolution of the way we recount the Botanical Garden’s five hundred years of scientific experience.
With this approach, the visit begins even before visitors reach the Garden and continues after they leave its gates.
It is an interactive key to identify a plant to its respective family.
You select characters and enter their values, such as flower color; the app will present you with possible identifications including family details and images.

Porquê uma aplicação para mapear plantas invasoras?
As plantas invasoras estão dispersas por todo o território e a sua distribuição altera-se rapidamente, pelo que ter um mapa atualizado da sua distribuição não é tarefa fácil.
A sua colaboração é valiosa: a informação recolhida será fundamental como ferramenta de gestão e como base para estudos científicos. Para além de poder submeter avistamentos de plantas invasoras, também pode aprender mais sobre elas, com a ajuda de um pequeno guia descritivo.
Mas o que são plantas invasoras?
Plantas invasoras são plantas não-nativas que, depois de introduzidas pelo Homem, conseguem reproduzir-se e dispersar pelos próprios meios, e aumentar muito a sua distribuição no território. São uma ameaça para a biodiversidade e para os ecossistemas nativos, e representam prejuízos significativos a nível económico. Só na Europa, estima-se que os prejuízos relacionados com as espécies invasoras sejam muito acima de 10 biliões de euros por ano.
Um grupo de investigadores do Centro de Ecologia Funcional da Universidade de Coimbra (CFE/UC) e da Escola Superior Agrária de Coimbra (ESAC) desenvolve, há mais de uma década, investigação com plantas invasoras e, paralelamente, investe na divulgação do tema junto da sociedade. No âmbito do projeto “Plantas Invasoras: uma ameaça vinda de fora”, estão a dinamizar uma atividade de ciência participativa no site http://invasoras.uc.pt , que pretende estimular os cidadãos a colaborar no preenchimento deste mapa.
Como funciona a aplicação?
Cada utilizador pode submeter registos da localização das plantas invasoras que encontra. Primeiro, é necessário criar uma conta de utilizador em invasoras.uc.pt. Depois de registado, pode entrar na aplicação e mantê-la ligada sem necessidade de fazer login de cada vez que a utiliza.
A aplicação apresenta uma lista de 46 plantas invasoras, ordenadas pelo nome científico. Comece por selecionar a espécie que está a observar, com ajuda das fotografias e descrições fornecidas. No canto superior direito da aplicação existe uma ferramenta de pesquisa que pode ajudar na identificação – basta clicar, selecionar a cor da flor, o porte da planta e o tipo de folha, e a lista de espécies será significativamente reduzida. Se persistirem dúvidas, pode consultar informação detalhada sobre as espécies em invasoras.uc.pt
Depois de selecionada a espécie, está pronto para fazer um novo avistamento; basta seguir as instruções que surgem e preencher os dados requeridos. Sempre que possível, aconselhamos o uso de GPS para uma localização mais exata. O preenchimento é rápido e nem todos os campos são obrigatórios. Tem um campo para “notas” onde pode colocar informação adicional que considere útil. À medida que utilizar a aplicação aprenderá a reconhecer as espécies, e será mais fácil e rápido utilizá-la: se o GPS estiver a funcionar, em menos de 1 minuto fará um registo.
Os avistamentos submetidos podem ser visualizados no mapa disponível em invasoras.uc.pt. No entanto, os avistamentos só ficarão visíveis depois de validados. No site pode ainda consultar os seus avistamentos, editá-los, ou apagá-los antes de serem validados, e submeter novos avistamentos.
A aplicação foi desenvolvida pela Bundlr e os conteúdos por investigadores do CFE/UC e da ESAC. O projecto “Plantas Invasoras: uma ameaça vinda de fora (ref 16905)” é co-financiado pela UE/FEDER, através do QREN (Programa Factores de Competitividade — COMPETE) e por fundos nacionais através da Ciência Viva.
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.
