To Conserve, Preserve, and Sustain Biodiversity of our planet


Next time when you saw a tree and you want to know what the name of the tree is just take a picture of the leaves of the tree and use Leafsnap aplications.   Leafsnap application identifies tree species by the shapes of their leaves, so the app’s algorithms extract the edge contours of the leaf in question (that’s why the app asks you to snap your pics on a solid background) and match it against an online database assembled by the Smithsonian Institution. FindingSpecies.org  uses this information to display the information about the tress or animals More details can be obtained at the followng links
