Environmental Weeds Australia

Environmental Weeds Australia


Environmental Weeds of Australia is now available as an ID App! It is based on an updated edition of the popular CD version and includes the full identification key, weed fact sheets, and over 10,000 images right on your smart device.


Please note this is a large download (272M) and depending on your connection may take several minutes to download and install. An internet connection is not required once installed.


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.

Use it all the time for work, it's fantastic & easy to use. Wish they would keep adding plants & make one for eucalyptus too

Great I've been using these Lucid identification keys since uni. Great to see them come to Android. Would be good to have a favourites option to save the identified object though.

Better to use the internet. 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.

Very useful for our Rangers 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.

Great ID resource 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. Tick boxes for selecting features are incredibly faint - initially got frustrated using the app as I wasn't aware they were there and couldn't see how to select a feature. Correction needed: lesser canary grass (Phalaris minor) hasn't been entered correctly, so doesn't sort correctly - scientific name and common name have been reversed.
