ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS / CREDITS
A huge thank you to Geoff Robertson for his advice, support and encouragement. Until recently, Geoff has been
the president of Kosciuszko to Coast (K2C) - a partnership of eleven natural resource management agencies and
community organisations with the overarching objective of increasing the resilience, extent and connectedness of target ecosystems across the K2C region.
Geoff was instrumental in selecting the weeds relevant to the ACT and Queanbeyan regions.
Thanks are also due to Ros Cornish, a walking encyclopedia of native plants in the ACT and Queanbeyan regions of Australia. Ros occasionally leads walks on
behalf of the Australian Native Plant Society
Go here for her collection of native plant images.
Special thanks to Kathryn Wells, Manager, Grasslands Project, Kosciuszko to Coast Inc.
For those of you who wish to learn more about weeds, there are some fantastic resources. For example, see here
If you are interested in learning about bio-control of weeds, please visit Barry Sampson's very informative site here
Needless to say, any errors in the information present here about the weeds, the native plants, or anything else, are ours alone.
We also thank the following people for granting us permission to use their images in the game. Copyrights to the images reside strictly
with the copyright holders.
The clock is ticking! And you must select the correct name of the plant in the photographs! The faster you identify the plant, the more points you earn.
But that's not all. If you correctly identify the plant, you will also be asked whether or not the plant is a weed. If you get it right, you earn bonus points! But if you get it wrong, you will lose points.
Not easy? Unsure? Luckily, you are given four life preservers, which appear beneath the multiple choice panel. You can use these life preservers at any time.
The "50/50" life preserver rules out half of the possible answers, which will make it easier to select the correct one. But keep in mind, the clock will keep ticking.
The "Stop Option" life preserver stops the clock, and the points you earn for correct answers will be based on how many seconds are remaining on the clock. So if you want to select a "Stop" life preserver, do it quickly!
Yes, you can play a "50/50" life preserver and a "Stop" life preserver in a single round. In fact, you can play all four in a single round.
That's it! After you're finished, you will have the option of entering your score on the leader board. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
