Perfect guide for a pocket

This is the second flower guide I have from Earthrover. This one doesn't dissapoint! Like the other, the search choices here are extensive. And unlike books I refer to, I can search leaf structure if the plant isn't in bloom. Easy to just casually search through the photos to find the color and look of a flower seen on the trail, to find its name. Or click on the details tab and find a great deal of information. If you want to dig deeper and explore botanical terms, become versed in the Latin organization of plant families, or want information on plant uses it's all there - a reference and an education in your pocket. There are 5-6 photos for nearly each species! This and a hand lens will go on my next hike. No more heavy guide books.

Just what I've always wanted!

Cliff and Gabi McLean are renowned for their knowledge and expertise as plant experts for the San Gabriel mountain region. I have their CD version of Plants of the San Gabriel Mountains and have wished that I could bring that with me in the field. Now I can with this app! Easy to use and chock full of information and images, the search capabilities make plant identification in the field a snap. No more wondering... "What is that plant?" or "I think I know what that is... I just need to confirm it somehow." An awesome resource!

Great app

Going on a three day hike in the San Gabriel mountains. Will test the app. It would be very useful to know which plants are edible and what parts of the plants. Also a cross reference between similar looking plants- for example if I'm looking at Chinese mustard plant in the wild, to make sure it's not something similar(and poisonous,) the app provides 3 most similar looking plants to the mustard plant that I can look over and review.
