Environmental Weeds of Australia has been developed to assist with the identification of weed species that invade natural habitats. It is a valuable resource for all those concerned about environmental weeds: weed and biodiversity researchers, trainers, advisors, weed control officers, environmental community groups, weed management practitioners, and anyone with an interest in environmental weeds.

While Australian focused, this key provides an excellent resource to users in other countries. Both plain English and botanical terms (usually in brackets) are used throughout the App to make it applicable to as wide an audience as possible.

At the core of this App is an interactive Lucid identification key to 1020 plant species that are either significant or emerging environmental weeds in Australia. To help confirm the identification of weed species the app provides over 10,000 photos and a wealth of information on each weed species and how to distinguish between very similar species. In many cases, links are provided to websites that have relevant information about the management of specific weed species.

    After using it for a while I found it wasn't very helpful as an identification tool or even to look up plants when you know the name.

    Tested it on St John’s Wort and Serrated Tussock running a Samsung Note 2. Works very well. Off-line too which is essential for Rangers. Thank you.

    Pros: First useful guide to weeds in Australia I've come across for Android. Love that it can be run without WIFI access, unlike many other keys I've tried. Easy to use. Photos are clear well when my Nexus 10 is in portrait mode Cons: Photos are blurry if the Nexus 10 is used in landscape mode (too few pixels in photos for this), but may be OK for a 7" tablet.
