This will allow the user to analyze a individual in relation to his race. The user must have already cast analyze species to make this very useful. It will tell exacting information on the nature of the subject. It varies between animal and plants.
Animals you get their type , their HD or levels, their hp, their armor, their
permanent special abilities, their Stats, and alignment. This will not include temporary or
magic item induced change. For example We have a bug bear that is a third level ranger
would give us the following.
Humanoid, Hd 3d8+6+3d10+6, 3HD monster,3HD ranger HP38, speed 30, Ac (+1 dex, +3 natural), Special abilities: All ranger and Darkvision 30' Str12, Dex14, Con15, Int12, Wis 14, Cha10, Alignment NE
It would not tell that his strength was a effective 16 because he wore a belt of str +4, nor that the axe he was holding lets him haste one time a day. It would tell if a local mage cast a permanency to read magic though. You would get the information that would be available if they were naked.
Plants on the other hand give you less useful info. They will tell you if the particular plant has a flaw or if it is particularly hardy but little else.
this spell gives the users of the spell a +2 to all manipulations of the life form, such as breeding or other forms of biomancy
