Abstract: Traditional taxonomic practices are insufficient on their own to cope with the growing need for accurate identifications. The recent development of DNA barcoding has been applied to plants. The next step is the development of a high-throughput Automated Identification Technology (AIT) system. Our research indicates that the efficacy of an AIT system equates with savings in time and funding. Given the potential interconnectivity of web-based applications, we suggest an AIT system for plants that uses several existing systems and suggest several applications where AIT could serve as a tool for biologists and for society at large.
