Additional choices on the Plant Identification page
A main part of the plant pictures are closeups showing details for positive identification. The DVD has the same capabilities for search and identification as the web site, in other words, all the scripts run from the DVD itself by just inserting it, and no installation is necessary. A major advantage of using the DVD is that it can be used in the field on a laptop. And, of course, the DVD contains over 1,800 more species than the web site.

Satisfaction is guaranteed, if you can view the web site and are using Windows 98 or higher, the DVD should run fine as well. The basic system requirements are listed below, however, if there would be a compatibility problem, the DVD can be returned within 10 days if in new condition, and a full refund except shipping/handling will be issued promptly. The DVD, as pictured above, will be shipped with first class mail in a DVD sleeve and rigid mailer. During plant growth season it may take up to about a week before products are shipped out because of high demand and work in the field.
