The FLIP project was funded by the FLEPPC 2011 Kathy Craddock Burks Education and Outreach Grant awarded to the Orange County Environmental Protection Division for the development of a web-based application that would allow for easy identification of common invasive plant species.
FLIP stands for FLorida Invasive Plants and is designed to be a mobile field guide that can be accessed by a computer, smart phone, tablet, or other device with internet browser capability. Developed in partnership with the University of South Florida (USF), FLIP currently contains 60 plants: 59 Category I invasive species and one Category II invasive species, as designated by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council (FLEPPC) 2015 list of invasives.
