A free app that allows you to log the growth of your plant tracker, record care instructions and set reminders. It is also an easy to use, intuitive interface for monitoring environmental factors such as temperature and humidity that impact plant health.
It is a collaborative “citizen science” project that uses members to monitor the progress of plant species worldwide. The app collects a photograph of a plant and compares it to a database of botanical images collected by other users to determine the plant’s species. It then offers a list of potential matches, and the user can select which one best fits.
Growth with Control: The Role of Plant Trackers in Asset Management
RTip is an image-based root growth velocity tracker that provides accurate results despite manual intervention in time lapse videos (i.e., when the root tip is not under the microscope and the images are distorted or blurred). Its ability to automatically skip past perturbation activity, as well as its ability to perform occlusion tracking even when the root tip is not in view for a long period of time, make it superior to other image-based trackers in terms of root velocity measurement and adaptability to perturbations.
This tool is designed for analyzing data from plant surveys conducted in quadrat maps. It iterates through a dat and inv file by site, quadrat and then species to compare quadrat maps from sequential years and assigns track and demographic data to individual organisms based on their overlap. A more detailed description of this process, including examples and a step-by-step guide to the application can be found in the package vignette.
