The Rain Forest Key project wiki

Welcome to the Rain Forest Key project wiki, a space for collaborating on interactive keys and descriptive resources for Australian tropical rainforest plants.


This project is based on the original Hyland et al. (2003) interactive CDROM, Australian Tropical Rainforest Plants - Trees, shrubs and vines. Subsequent projects seek to add the orchids, ferns and fern allies and the herbs. This wiki contains key and descriptive materials and discussion with the aim to integrate all the rainforest key projects in a single resource.
