Abstract: The interactive keys allow the user to select which features of a plant to use for identification and in what order to use them. Our keys have been developed with the user in mind. They were created using Lucid, a program made by the Centre for Biological Information Technology (CBIT) at the University of Queensland. The dichotomous keys require the user to give information on features selected by the author of the key and in the order selected by the author. They were created using Phoenix, another program made by CBIT. The resulting keys are more flexible than printed keys because they allow users to skip leads, returning to the skipped leads later, if desired. Our Fact sheets contain high quality images, treatments, line drawings, and many other useful data. Many of our fact sheets also feature interactive Google Maps displaying global distribution data from GBIF. Our glossary contains succinct, useful definitions for botanical terms that you will encounter in our keys. We have included many high quality images to help illustrate the definitions. (The special focus of these resources in on monocotyledonous plants, esp. Poaceae and Cyperaceae.) [Information of the supplier, modified]
Java Virtual Machine (JVM) v1.4.2 or greater is required for using the keys.
