Warning on the use of some LucID menu options

The LucID software was designed for use in creating taxonomic keys and so some of the menu options are not relevant to the Plants for Carnaby’s Search Tool. These include the options ‘Allow Misinterpretations’, ‘Retain Uncertainties’ and using ‘Best’ mode. If these options are selected the results will not be meaningful.

To the best of our knowledge the information contained in this search tool is correct. Many fields relate to biological characteristics that are influenced by many factors and so the performance of a particular plant may vary in different circumstances.
