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.
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 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).
Users can narrow the species list for any location in North America using the phone's GPS, network signal or any entered address or zip code. Basically the application can become “Woody Plants of Where You Are Standing”. For example, it can become the “Woody Plants of Southwestern Oregon” , the “Woody Plants of Central Park” or the or “The Woody Plants of 37.108 lat., -80.452 long., elevation 2118”.
Users can further narrow the species list by answering a series of very simple tree attribute questions such as where the plant is growing, leaf shape, leaf arrangement, flower color or fruit type.
The species list can also be narrowed by typing a keyword such as oak, Abies, red or palm. For example if oak is typed only oaks found in the defined area will be listed.
A feature also allows you to send any tree related question to “Dr. Dendro”, a tree expert in the Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation at Virginia Tech. You can send a tree description or pictures of your plant and experts will help with identification.

Botaniculum is a perfect tool for plant identification, not only for botanists but for interested laymen as well.
The Botaniculum database knows about 7,000 plant names. It contains classification attributes and detailed information regarding major domestic and wild growing plants, as well as medicinal plants.
In addition, there are 2,500 large-format color photos and illustrations in brilliant HD quality.
The wealth of information in Botaniculum corresponds to a textbook of more than 1,000 pages, yet this data collection fits into any pocket.
Botaniculum is easy and intuitive to use. In seven steps or mostly less, even laymen will identify any native wild plant with the help of his or her smartphone (according to flower color, flower shape, inflorescence, leaf shape, leaf arrangement of leaves, leaf edge and specific shape). In addition, fruit type, fruit color, bloom time, collection time and many other properties can be specified.
Photos can be added to each plant - taken with the internal camera or added from existing photo collections.
Many search functions and a fast full-text search option make it possible to use Botaniculum as a comprehensive and convenient reference. With a few clicks, the plants are sorted according to their properties, which include medicinal plants, culinary herbs, their use in homeopathy, bloom time, collection time, species, habitat and many more - the search possibilities are almost endless.
Numerous synonyms in the database allow the user to quickly locate plants by their popular or botanical names.
Botaniculum contains information about the healing effects of the more than 400 medicinal plants. Their applications and contraindications are listed, as well as their possible homeopathic use and other interesting details.
The database contains information about poisonous plants as well: toxins, toxic effects and toxic parts of the plants are listed.
Edible plants are listed with detailed information about collecting time, preparation, taste and culinary use.
It is possible to add user-defined categories and comments to each plant.
All information is available “offline” at any time after installing the Botaniculum App on your Android device: after installation, an internet connection is not necessary, therefore no connection costs will be incurred and the program functions of Botaniculum work in remote places.
The Botaniculum image database requires 600 MB internal storage capacity.If you want to install the image database on an external sd-card, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keywords: plants reference, plant identification, plant determination, plants guide, herbs guide, encyclopedia of plants, textbook of botany, medicinal plants, culinary herbs, list of plants, plant finder, wild plants, flora, biology.

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.
