S1E10 — How to Map and Catalogue Every Plant Species on Earth by 2022 with Eric Ralls of PlantSnap & Earth.com
June 30, 2021
This week, I am joined by Eric Ralls, Founder & CEO of PlantSnap and Earth.com, to discuss how a chance encounter with a mystery plant in his friend's backyard led to the idea behind PlantSnap, what technologies have made PlantSnap's 650,000 plants and 475 million+ image database possible, how a revolutionary partnership with the world's largest botanic gardens organization will complete their global citizen science project, and of course, what Eric's favourite plant is.
