This Environmental Weeds of Australia DVD has been developed to assist with the identification of weed species that invade natural habitats in Australia (i.e. environmental weeds). Both plain English and botanical terms (usually in brackets) are used throughout this product in order to make it applicable to as wide an audience as possible.
The core feature of this DVD is an interactive Lucid identification key for about 1000 plant species that are either significant, emerging or potential environmental weeds in Australia. If you haven't used a Lucid key before, you can find out more about Lucid features in the help files located in the Lucid Player.
The Environmental Weeds of Australia DVD also provides photos and a wealth of information on these weed species. The Fact Sheets section can be visited separately from the key if you are interested in finding out more about a particular species. These pages are also useful for confirming an identification, or for finding information about how to distinguish between very similar species. In addition, they often provide links to websites that have relevant information about the control and/or management of these species.
