Pl@ntNet is an identification system that helps you identify plants through images. The Pl@ntNet system works by comparing visual patterns transmitted by users via photos of plant that they seek to determine.  This free app works on more than 18,000 wild plants.


„Pl@ntNet is an application that allows to identify plants simply by photographing them with a smartphone. Pl@ntNet is also a great citizen science project: all the plant pictures produced by the networkd of users (of several millions of people) are used by scientists around the world to better understand the evolution of plant biodiversity and to better preserve it.“

„Pl@ntNet allows to identify and better understand all kinds of plants living in nature: flowering plants, trees, grasses, conifers, ferns, vines, wild salads or cacti. Pl@ntNet can also identify a large number of cultivated plants (in parks and gardens). The more visual information you give to Pl@ntNet about the plant you are observing, the more accurate the identification will be.  Flowers, fruits and leaves are the most characteristic organs of a species and it is them that should be photographed first. But any other detail can be useful, such as thorns, buds or hair on the stem. A photograph of the whole plant (or the tree if it is one!) is also very useful information, but it is often not sufficient to allow a reliable identification.

At present Pl@ntNet makes it possible to recognize about 31,000 species. Pl@ntNet is getting richer every day thanks to the contributions of the most experienced users. All shared observation will be reviewed by the community and may one day join the photo gallery illustrating the species in the application.

New version of Pl@ntNet includes the following features:
– The ability to filter recognized species by genus or family.
– The differentiated data revision that gives more weight to users who have demonstrated the most skills (in particular the number of species observed, validated by the community).
– The re-identification of shared observations, whether yours or those of other users of the application.
– The multi-flora identification that allows user to search for the photographed plant in all the flora of the application and not only in the selected one.
– The selection of your favorite floras to access them more quickly.
– The navigation at different taxonomic levels in image galleries.
– The mapping of your observations.
– Links to many factsheets.
