Questions related to Plant Identification
I found these seeds (photo attached) in the gizzards of Green-winged Teal (n=51), and I was hoping that someone on here could recognize them before I start diving into the seed manuals to identify them. I am not good with wetland seed identification but I'm pretty sure the second from the left in the middle row is Polygonum lapathifolium. If you have any book recommendations too please let me know, these were found in coastal North Carolina. Thanks!
The seeds were collected in autumn/winter. A pink thin shell covered the seeds. No pulp was found, the seeds are dry. The seeds were found in South Germany at the edge of the forest. Unfortunately I have no more information. I'm looking forward to any suggestions. Thank you :-)
Between the new plant species and the plant subspecies exists narrow differences, When somebody can decide it? what are the essential elements to do it?
During my recent investigation in a montane cloud Rhododendron forest (1800m asl), I found this sponge like moss. Someone told me it's a species of carnivous moss. Yet I cannot find information about the plant. Could anyone provide scientific name to me? Thanks in advance.
Now a days many techniques are available on crop nutrition such as soil testing, plant testing, foliar diagnosis, soil test crop response method and colour chart method etc. Though many number of methods are available to diagnose deficiency or toxicity of nutrients either in soil or on crop plants , identification of type and level of nutrient deficiency or toxicity is difficult for recommending nutrient application. In this connection, discussion on soil mineral resource identification, nutrient release from the particular mineral and quantity of elements release my give better idea on nutrient management for agri / horti /forestry crops especially in organic agriculture.
I would like to upload images of plants and get some identification (only name, for example). Maybe some service using Deep Learning?
Is there is a researcher that can help to know the botanical name of the plant with the help of a picture?
It is a coastal area along the Arabian gulf just before the mangrove plantation. So I want to identify the plant.
I have observed among the population of Croton bonplandianus near Salem City, Tamil Nadu India with distinct yellow veined variegated leaves. What is the reason for this kind of variation in the leaves of some plants while the other populations remain green?
There are various applications that show the name of a plant to the user by receiving an image. What is the basis of the operation of this category of applications? How do these apps quickly detect plants?
Just got back from Iran, and there was questions about local eremostachys. Earlie this species originated from Shah Kuh Mnts was identified as molluceloides (=macrophyla). Found the same much further to the West, in Elburs Mnts near Folud Mohale, Semnan Prov. In both places plants grow in similar conditions. Occupy the ridges and upper parts of slopes of the Northern, North-Western and Western orientation at the height of 2000-2300 m. The plants are quite tiny, their height together with the spike no more than 20-25 cm. See picture 1-5 shows the plants themselves and the places of their growth. Much further South, in the vicinity of Reshm, Semnan Prov., I found Eremostachys, which does, at first glance, morphologically not different from the previous one, except for the size (photo 6-10). This is a powerful plant at least half a meter high. Grows at the junction of the slope and valleys and in the bottoms of mountain valleys at an altitude of about 1500 m. In areas where it grows the first plant, is not found the second, and vice versa. In your opinion, are these two similar Eremostachys are different species, or just two different forms of the same species?
I am currently pursuing my research in Phycology and planning to conduct a study on microalgae. Is there any place where I can send my samples to be identified? (Preferably in South India)
Also, if it's possible to get any pure-cultured algae for my experiments?
Can anybody please help me to identify this plant? The picture of the plant was taken from a forest in Amuana Praso in the Eastern region of Ghana. Thanks for your help.
Hi, I'm a plant pathologist (not a very good plant biologist I'm afraid) currently struggling. I was studying the spread of a disease on Manila palms (Adonidia merrillii) when I noticed some differences with this specimen which led me to believe it might be another species (or at least another cultivar). The leaves are a tone darker in green, the trunk is slim and the crownshaft is bluish-grey. The "structure" of the leaf seems a bit different at least to me. While looking for pictures of other species I found that manila palms were previously included in the Veitchia genus. Is this a Veitchia species or a Adonidia merrillii? Could you help me with this particular specimen? I add photos of the plant (the one in the center) and close-ups of fruits and leaf.
Please help to identify to species this eremostachys. It is from: IRAN, SEMNAN, SHAHRUD AREA, SHAH-KUH MTS., SHAHVAR MT., N36º31', E 54º45', ~2100 m, 15-17.V.2017
Please help to identify to species this Scrophulariaceae. It is from: IRAN, Razavi Khorasan Province, Khezri Dasht Beyaz N 34º03', E 58º37', ~2300 m, 10-11.V.2017
There is a need to identify this plant, an important host plant for some leaf-mining insects in Bolivia (paper in prep.). We would greatly appreciate any your help.
Photographed in June 2018, in Bolivia: Coroico (the Yungas province), elevation 1600 m. It‘s a rather large tree, growing close to a village. Unfortunately, no more photos available. No flowers.
The way 16S and 18S rDNA sequencing employed for the genetic level identification of bacteria and fungi respectively, am looking for sequence based identification of the plant species targeting the rbcL gene.
In this context I would like to know if there is an universal primer that encompasses all the species included in the kingdom - Plantae available?
Thanks & Regards

Can anyone help identify this plant, I suspect it may be from the Euphorbiaceae family, we found it in the rainforest in Kota Kinabalu. A local herbalist told me it is used to prevent aging, cancer and poisoning. Locals refer to it as Bornean Ginseng.
I already have a checklist of North American plants which meet basic tree, shrub, subshrub, forb, graminoid, epiphyte, vine, broadleaf/needleleaf, rosette, succulent, evergreen/deciduous categories. However, I am interested in further classifying species as sclerophyllous, or small-leaved. I could otherwise spend considerable time reviewing plant manuals to get this data.
Should shortness outrank succulence? Combinations like "succulent subshrub" would be lost if I were to follow Appendix B (species like Opuntia humifusa, would generally be lumped in with dwarf shrub since it is mostly < 30 cm, except in FL).
It may be desirable to have annuals as a separate category of forbs and graminoids, given that they characterize vegetation in some unique ephemeral enviroments.
Now a day’s electronic media has made extraordinary milestones relevant plant identification. There are so many apps are present to identify plants. You can take a snap from your cell phone, it will identify about captured plant, also provides basic details like botanical name, family, cultivation and uses. You can easily identify plant through modern electrics. You can download app from play-store named snapplant, pictureThis etc.
If this information is helpful for you then let me have its feedback.
this ixora mainly collected from teak planted forest floor of kaptai, rangamati area in 2017. Hardly 1 feet high.
Now growing in BAU botanical garden. Picture attaced.
Is this Ixora nigricans or other spp? get confused
Can any one confirmed it?
thanks in advance
