Insects, plants, flowers, birds: discover the best uses to identify them

It has never been easier to become a wildlife expert. In the spring, the finally ripe buds bloom thousands of flowers and the insects begin to swarm again. Enough to tickle all our senses… and our curiosity! A walk in the city or in the countryside is an opportunity to rediscover the wonders that nature has in store for us. But sometimes the latter turns out to be quite mysterious. How do you know the name of some small animal, shrub, or flower? In recent years, mobile applications have sprung up like mushrooms to help us identify them. The principle is simple: just take a picture of the plant, insect or animal in question to discover the complete identity card. Practical, right? And a small bonus: another application based on the same principle allows you to recognize a bird by its song.

Downloaded over 10 million times, the PlantNet application presents itself as the Shazam of plants. The principle is simple: while walking through nature or through the streets of your city, you photograph a species (flower, shrub, cactus, conifer, etc.) and submit it with the application. PlantNet then makes sure to identify it among the 20,000 species listed in the catalog and gives you a detailed identity sheet to learn more. All the photos uploaded by users then allow scientists around the world to study the evolution of biodiversity in order to better conserve it.

Indeed, the application is aimed at novice gardeners by giving them valuable maintenance advice for their plantations as well. Practical, isn’t it?
