To all those interested in plant identification, particularly in the UK. You
may be interested in the following link.

What you will find there is an internet application to aid in the
identification of wild plants. The species covered are those higher plants
that grow in the wild in Great Britain, including ferns, grasses and trees.

The system asks some simple questions about the characteristics of the plant
and will pick the most likely species from its database.  You may also find
the system useful to obtain checklists of plants from a particular habitat
or family.

If you find the system useful or have any comments or suggestions please
feel free to contact me.
