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.

It is a partnership between all Australian museums, herbaria and biological collections, CSIRO and the Commonwealth Government to help build a clearer picture of Australian biodiversity for researchers and managers, in fact anyone who would like to know more about the living world, identify species or understand their distribution. It’s easy to add your own sightings and photos to the Atlas and help to increase our knowledge and understanding of Australian biodiversity.
This application allows users to retrieve lists of species recorded within an area, and to view details of the species such as recorded distribution, scientific name, common names and images. It also allows users to submit species occurrence records with an image to the Atlas of Living Australia, and to view the latest images added to the Atlas.
On November 28th we will conduct a large-scale Citizen Science project—THE GREAT KOALA COUNT. We hope you can participate, and you could win a prize for helping out! You can do it with family or friends, as a community group or as a school.
Why have a koala count? Koalas populations are now considered Vulnerable in most of their natural range. However, in South Australia koala numbers are predicted to be high. Counting koalas is difficult because they occur in towns, gardens, parks, along roads, on farms and in schoolyards. There are simply not enough scientists to count them. So we need your help – to be a Citizen Scientist and help count them, and let us know what you think about them.
Use this app to take a photo and record what you see, then share your data with the world!
