We present the plant classification system submitted by the QUT RV team to the LifeCLEF 2015 plant task. Our system learns a content speciffic feature for various plant parts such as branch, leaf, fruit, ower and stem. These features are learned using a deep convolutional neural network. Experiments on the LifeCLEF 2015 plant dataset show that the proposed method achieves good performance with a score of 0:633 on the test set.
