Nature can provide you with food that will let you survive any ordeal, if you don't eat the wrong plant. Learn about the plants of the region where you will be operating before your life depends on it. Plants can also provide you with medicine in a survival situation. Plants can supply you with weapons and raw materials to construct shelters and build fires. Plants can even provide you with chemicals for poisoning fish, preserving animal hides, and for camouflaging yourself and your equipment.

Wild Plant Survival Guide describes the physical characteristics, habitat and distribution of edible, medicinal and poisonous wild plants. Over 130 plants and 350 color photos simplify the identification of poisonous and edible plants. The U.S. Army gathered this content and now it is available to you.

If you spend time in the wilderness, Wild Plant Survival Guide is for you.

So far so good

I'm new to plant identification so any information is helpful. I like that I can zoom in close on the photos...wish it had a bigger selection of plants in the app, but a lot apply to my location. Next camping trip ill be using it while hiking. I'm probably not going to eat everything I find because I'm not in a survival situation, however it is a fun activity with the wife to walk around and enjoy looking for certain plants.

Great pictures, perfect information, works off line, easy read, very organized. One suggestion I would make is break up the edible plants into groups where they are located in the states. So all plants found in Florida in one tab. If plants are found in multiple states and it's the same multiple states they should in one tab.

Hello there, ,

Not enough

I also wish there was a plant identification feature. I’d like to snap a shot and know what I’m looking at
