Abstract

An interactive identification system is presented for Australian rain forest trees. The identification system contains 2 basic components, a computer-based key (available on 3 floppy disks) and a printed manual in 2 volumes. The first volume contains instructions for loading and using the computer key, descriptions and illustrations of the features available, a glossary, and lists of species giving scientific names, common names, and standard trade names. The second volume contains descriptions and diagnoses of the 1056 taxa of trees currently recognized within Australian tropical rain forests. A companion volume is available which contains leaf/leaflet illustrations of all the species in this manual.
