The new Adventrop software at http://www.upc.qc.ca/cirad 


Adventrop is a new, completely visual method for identifying plants.
Anyone needing to quickly name a plant can use it: botanical specialists,
as well as farmers, environmental activists, students and even school
children. The power of this method should be clear from the following
demonstration. 


Please take warning! In the demonstration the method is applied to a
particular category of plants: weeds of the Sahelian-Sudanian zone in
Africa. We want you to evaluate the method for plant identification and
not this special case. The objective of our survey is to learn if this
method is a valuable addition to existing identification tools, and to
find partners interested in applying it to other plant categories. 


By answering the following few simple questions, you will be helping the
general public attain a better knowledge of nature. Moreover, the
development of this method will give scientists and professionals in the
field more ease in pursueing their research. 


Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
