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 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).
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!
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.

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.

Using the application makes species identification easy: simply choose selection criteria in the order you prefer. While observing a plant, you can, for example, define its height, flower colour, or leaf shape. The list of possible species is refreshed and refined each time you select an additional criterion. In most cases, finding the correct species takes only a few easy selections. The identification works the same for all species.
