Help track down invasive plants
Posted on October 25, 2013
The Environment Agency, the Nature Locator team at the University of Bristol and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology have joined forces to help combat the spread of the UK’s most problematic invasive, non-native plant species using a Smart Phone app. The majority of the species on the app live in or near water, so this especially relevant for the WTT and our supporters.
The PlantTracker app, available free from the iTunes App Store and Android Market, shows you how to identify each species and enables you to easily submit geo-located photos whenever you find one. The app now features 14 invasive plant species and also includes a “Confusion Species” gallery for each one, to help you separate some of the similar looking plants you might encounter.
