Harmful Nova Scotia Plants application

We recently developed a companion application to our Useful Nova Scotia Plants application. This one is called Harmful Nova Scotia Plants.

Once again, the content was developed by Marian Munro, botany curator of the Nova Scotia Museum. This one does not exclusively feature native Nova Scotia plants, but instead divides plants into three categories: Wild, Garden and House –– and so includes non-native plants that might be found in or around the home, such as Aloe Vera and Nutmeg.

It’s available as a web application written in Elm and once again as an Ember application in iOS and Android versions.
