About this product

With the aid of Wattle, you will be able to identify any species of acacia in Australia. This powerful electronic key enables species to be quickly and accurately named, irrespective of whether specimens are in flower or fruit. WATTLE is also a comprehensive information package, with descriptions and illustrations of the nearly 1,200 species, subspecies and variants of acacia in Australia.

Wattle's browser interface enables quick access to the rich stores of information or to the identification component, the latest Web-integrated Lucid Player. Every species has a botanical description, a distribution map and diagnostic drawings, one of which is annotated to highlight the most critical features of the plant. Supplementary drawings are derived from well-known sources such as Mueller's Iconography of Australian Acacias, Simmons' Acacias of Australia, and Whibley & Symon's Acacias of South Australia. This product has been updated to use the Lucid software version 3.5.
