Some scientists have estimated that there are about 400,000 flowering plant species in the world; that’s a lot of plants. So you’ll be okay if you don’t know each and every one of them. But if you’re really curious about that one flower you walked past on the park, don’t worry there’s an app that will help you identify that plant. Pl@ntNet is an app that will help you identify a plant just by taking a picture of it; think of it as the Shazam for plants. The Pl@ntnet application was launched the agriculture trade show and it is available at the Apple store and soon for Android. It is an app that allows amateur botanists to identify the plants around them and share their observations all in real time. Just by using a Smartphone, the user can photograph some bark, a leaf, a fruit or a flower and then in just a few seconds the database (a comprehensive one) provides the user with the plant’s scientific and common names
