The Minnesota Wildflowers Info. app was developed to serve as a complete, offline compliment to the renowned website: MinnesotaWildflowers.info.
The full version currently contains profiles for 1,450 plants with over 12,000 images covering:
•53 Ferns & Fern Allies
Each plant’s profile contains a detailed description with insights into how it is distinguished from similar plants, a distribution map for Minnesota, a table of traits and general information, and images. A complete list of plants that are known to occur in MN is also included.
A layman friendly, multi-access key assists with the identification of plants. As traits are selected in the multi-access key, plants that do not have the trait are eliminated and traits that do not serve to narrow the results are grayed out. A glossary, that can be accessed through the multi-access key, describes and illustrates examples of the traits.
Two plant profiles can be compared at once, side-by-side, by turning on the “Comparison View” setting within the app.
