Description

The Grows at Griffith app allows users to access an attractive, easy-to-use and concise flora of the common vascular plants found on Griffith University campuses and South East Queensland.

Overview

The Grows at Griffith app is useful to anyone wanting to identify plants in six different plant communities. Traditionally this would require a number of guidebooks to identify plant species and communities. The current identification guides are rather large and, although extremely informative, are cumbersome in the field.

Features of the app include:

  • Multiplatform: downloaded for both iOS and Android
  • Information on over 200 plants
  • More than 500 photos of plants
  • Search plants by various characteristics

Considerations

The app is free and is readily downloadable from iTunes or Google Play. With open access to such a wide audience, we hope that this may kindle an enthusiasm for generating more similar apps in the future to document and present, in a simple yet concise medium, the entire flora of South-East Queensland.
