New mobile app released

On March 4, 2024, we released our mobile app called FloraQuest: Carolinas & Georgia, a new plant identification and discovery app covering over 5,800 vascular plants. With graphic keys, dichotomous keys, habitat descriptions, range maps, 33,333 diagnostic photos, and a set of great places to botanize, this and all the FloraQuest apps are the perfect companion for your botanical explorations. It doesn't need an internet connection to run, so you can take it with you anywhere.

Check out our talk on FloraQuest, the FSUS Web App, and all things Flora of the Southeast.
