PlantNet Plant Identification 3.0.4
Pl@ntNet is an application that allows you to identify plantssimply by photographing them with your smartphone. Very useful whenyou don't have a botanist on hand! Pl@ntNet is also a great citizenscience project: all the plants you photograph are collected andanalysed by scientists around the world to better understand theevolution of plant biodiversity and to better preserve it. Pl@ntNetallows you to identify and better understand all kinds of plantsliving in nature: flowering plants, trees, grasses, conifers,ferns, vines, wild salads or cacti. Pl@ntNet can also identify alarge number of cultivated plants (in parks and gardens) but thisis not its primary purpose. We especially need Pl@ntNet’s users toinventory the wild plants, those that you can observe in nature ofcourse but also those that grow on the sidewalks of our cities orin the middle of your vegetable garden! The more visual informationyou give to Pl@ntNet about the plant you are observing, the moreaccurate the identification will be. There are indeed many plantsthat look alike from afar and it is sometimes small details thatdistinguish two species of the same genus. Flowers, fruits andleaves are the most characteristic organs of a species and it isthem that should be photographed first. But any other detail can beuseful, such as thorns, buds or hair on the stem. A photograph ofthe whole plant (or the tree if it is one!) is also very usefulinformation, but it is often not sufficient to allow a reliableidentification. At present Pl@ntNet makes it possible to recognizeabout 20,000 species. We are still a long way from the 360,000species living on earth, but Pl@ntNet is getting richer every daythanks to the contributions of the most experienced users amongyou. Don't be afraid to contribute yourself! Your observation willbe reviewed by the community and may one day join the photo galleryillustrating the species in the application. The new version ofPl@ntNet released in January 2019 includes many improvements andnew features: - The ability to filter recognized species by genusor family. - The differentiated data revision that gives moreweight to users who have demonstrated the most skills (inparticular the number of species observed, validated by thecommunity). - The re-identification of shared observations, whetheryours or those of other users of the application. - The multi-floraidentification that allows you to search for the photographed plantin all the flora of the application and not only in the one youhave selected. Very useful when you are not sure what flora to lookfor. - The selection of your favorite floras to access them morequickly. - The navigation at different taxonomic levels in imagegalleries. - The mapping of your observations. - Links to manyfactsheets. The web version of the application is also available atthe following address: 1.6.0
Smart'Flore is an application for the discovery of the botany. Itallows to find the plants that are close to you or to guide you onbotanical trails. This work is part of the Floris'Tic project,supported by the "Programme Investissement d'Avenir" and involvingteams of Agropolis Fondation, Tela Botanica, Inria, Cirad, Cnrs,Inra, Ird, UM. A browser offers the possibility to explore thespecies list and to filter according various criteria (yourgeographical position, plants uses, family, genus). Presently,there are four referentials that are availables within theapplication: French flora, Reunion Island flora, Useful plants, andWorld flora. You can also explore "Botanical Trails". Some trailsare supplemented with explanatory panels that facilitate theidentification of plants in the field. Other trails aredematerialized but the application will guide you easily todiscover the plants. The detailed card of each species allows todiscover the following informations (when availables): - Commonnames (sources: EOL, GBIF, GRIN) - Plant uses (source: GRIN) -Photo gallery (sources: EOL, GBIF, TLB) - Wikipédia page - Pl@ntUsepage (Wiki for useful plants) - Map of the observations (source:GBIF) - Scientific name, Genus, Family, Synonyms (sources: GRIN,The Plant List, TLB) EOL: Encyclopedia of Life GBIF: GlobalBiodiversity Information Facility GRIN: Germplasm ResourcesInformation Network TLB: Tela Botanica
