If you're reading this ...

… then you're halfway there! To use the website, just select the "Home" link by clicking in the upper left corner of this screen. Then click on the section of Plant ID Pal in which you're interested.

The list contains all of the plants in the section. You can scroll down the page or use the alphabetical index on the right edge of the window, then click on a plant name to view the photos and brief descriptions for that plant.

Each entry has multiple views of the same plant (whole plant, twigs/stems, leaves, flowers, fruit, etc.). You can click on the small thumbnail image or the dots at the bottom of the screen to navigate through the images and descriptions for that plant.

To return to the plant list, click on the left arrow in the upper left corner of the screen.


There is also a "Quiz" feature at the end of each list of plants. Think of it as a flash-card game. You’ll be shown an image, then you click on the corresponding plant name that you think is correct. If you select the wrong answer, you’ll see "Try Again" in red letters and you may then select another answer. If you are correct, you’ll see a green checkmark and you can click the next question button at the bottom of the window.


You'll also find a glossary of terms used throughout this site. Click on the Glossary link on the home page and scroll down the page to navigate.
