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.
To find this application on the web, go to the following link:
Those who want to contribute more interactively to this participatory science project can go to:
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).

Each installation includes three prepaid identifications, each other for : 1 USD / 0.7 EUR. We use Google's in-app purchase.
The identification process is not computer-based, it requires human involvement. Therefore we ask for a payment to maintain quality of the service. If we can't identify your plant, you don't pay anything.
Our team will respond as quickly as possible, but the identification usually takes minutes or hours. So far, we have been able to identify 90% plants in average.

The species offered are common in the Northern Europe and the whole Northern Hemisphere. Future updates will provide an even wider selection of species groups, regions and languages as well as many additional interesting features!
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.
- In English and Finnish
- With In-App purchases, it is possible to identify almost 1,200 species!
- Selection criteria can be chosen according your own preference
- The results are refreshed after each selection
- Photos have been selected to assist the identification process
- Links to the NatureGate pages, where you find more details and additional pictures
- Browsing of species based on scientific, Finnish or English names

The species identification is easy – try yourself!
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!

These mobile apps are being developed under the U.S. State Department's International Exchange Alumni programme- Alumni Innovation Engagement Fund's Project- Mobile Apps 4 Climate Change. Dr. V.Shubhalaxmi has been the sole winner from India who won the global competition wherein 1000 proposals were submitted and only 53 finalists were chosen world over. She alongwith her four team members; Dr. Swayamprabha Das, Dr. Ashutosh Richarriya, Dr. Anirban Gupta and Mr. Isaac Kehimkar have launched student citizen science programme in 10 schools of New Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkatta and Mumbai. For this endeavour, they have partnered with WWF-India and Greenline.To learn more about this initiative visit our project website www.inaturewatch.org
The app is targeted towards young students who have taken fancy to gadgets such as smartphones and tablets. The idea is to engage students by use of technology and assist them in their project work which could involve documentation of local flora. This app is also a tool for environmental educators specially teachers who sometimes do not have access to natural history resources or persons. The app brings tree identification to finger tips of its users thus providing an alternate tool besides an expert or field guide.
The app describes 50 species of trees along with their pictures of leaf fruit, bark, common English and Latin name, height, geographical range, details about leaves, flowers, fruits, uses and associations. The language has been kept non-technical however incase of unavoidable technical words, a glossary if provided to explain these terms.Once you download this Android app either on your smartphone or tablet, please keep updating your app as we will be improvising and rectifying some of the technical and information errors. In case you come across a tree which is not available in this app, we have provided list of books and online resources wherein you could get your tree identified. Happy Treewatching!
This app is a brainchild of Dr.V.Shubhalaxmi so saw the gap between learner and educator, plus apathy towards environment by urban people. Having worked for BNHS for 21 years, she left to start her own social enterprise- Ladybird Environmental Consulting . Her company specializes in environmental CSR. To learn more visit her website www.ladybirdconsulting.co.in.
This app is a hard work of 37 people who worked on it besides the principal content developers; Mr. Isaac Kehimkar and Dr. V.Shubhalaxmi, the creative team of LycodonFx did an excellent job of converting our dream idea into a reality. In the domain of environment there are very few vendors who are equipped with natural history know how and product execution. In this regard LycodonFx is highly recommended to all those who wish to develop new environmental products. Visit their website www.lycodonfx.com and see for yourself.
