Oregon Wildflowers

High Country Apps, LLC
The Oregon Flora Project at Oregon State University and High Country Apps have partnered to produce the new Oregon Wildflowers plant identification app for smart phones and tablets. The app provides photographs, range maps, bloom period, and detailed descriptions for more than 940 common wildflowers, shrubs, and vines that occur throughout Oregon and adjacent areas of California, Washington and Idaho. Designed for both budding wildflower enthusiasts and experienced botanists, Oregon Wildflowers will appeal to individuals who are interested in the names and natural history of the plants they encounter. It is an excellent educational tool for all ages to learn about botany, plant communities, and ecology using the plants found throughout Oregon. Each of the 947 plants profiled has multiple photographs, distribution maps, and a detailed description. The majority of species included are native, and introduced species common to the region are also covered. Plant hunters can use the app to identify species in all ten of Oregon’s diverse ecoregions. Users can browse through the stunning photographs of plants organized by common name, scientific name, or by family to select a plant and access the related information. However, most users will likely use the identification key that is the core of the app to identify an unknown plant of interest. The key's interface allows users to select from twelve illustrated categories: geographic region, type of plant (e.g., wildflower, vine, shrub), flower features (flower color, number of petals, inflorescence shape, flowering month), leaf features (arrangement on plant, leaf type, leaf shape, leaf margin), plant size, and habitat. Once downloaded, the app does not need an internet or network connection to run so you can use it no matter how remote your wanderings take you. The Oregon Flora Project is preparing a comprehensive Flora of Oregon for publication in 2015. The Oregon Wildflowers app presents a subset of this information—over 20% of the state’s unique plants—formatted for mobile devices and easily mastered by a wide audience. Users will find extensive information on the ecoregions and plant habitats of Oregon, a glossary of botanical terms, and descriptions of each plant family represented in the app. The Oregon Flora Project website (www.oregonflora.org) contains additional information about all of Oregon’s 4,560 vascular plants. A portion of revenues from the app supports conservation and botanical exploration in the region.

The Pollinator Partnership is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization-- the largest organization in the world dedicated exclusively to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems. Birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals that pollinate plants are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food. They also sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce. Unfortunately they are in trouble. Some species have seen a 90% decline in their populations over the last decade. Without the actions of pollinators agricultural economies, our food supply, and surrounding landscapes would collapse.

Plant ID on the App Store on iTunes

Marcia Angi

Description

This App will help Identify Plants in their Natural Environment. It is designed for novice and experts alike to help identify plants in your environment. Just choose from drop down boxes to describe the plant and get a list with pictures to help identify the plant. Once you click on the plant you will get valuable information about the plant. It can be used to find herbs or invasive plants or poison plants and is a great beginning to discovering plants, trees, mushrooms and other fungus. The app has a list of 50,000 plants to explore but the drop down menu helps to narrow your search and give you a list of pictures and options. The information page that you are taken to will allow you to see a further search or in some cases, give you a document fact sheet to tell you about the plant you have chosen. The plants in the data base are from all over but mostly in the United States and Canada.
It can tell you if a plant is endangered or invasive, poison or edible or even what soil it is grown in and if it can be transplanted from one area to next.

It is difficult to identify plants in the wild because many can look alike and one maybe poison and one edible so please do not make a decision based on the app without consulting an expert. This app is intended to get you started on your wilderness or backyard exploring on the exciting world of plants and nature. HAVE FUN.
