Australian Weed Resources
Following a project funded by the Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts, images of weeds have been added to the 'Weeds in Australia' website:
Images from this project are hosted by the Australian National Botanic Gardens’ photo collection database, the Australian Plant Image Index (APII), and can be searched, along with a large collection of native Australian plant images, at:
APII image search:
The images will also be linked to the Australian Plant Name Index 'APNI' database, which already lists a number of weed taxa.
*Please note: special copyright conditions apply to all weed photographs, as with all images in the APII. Some weed image records have hyperlinks to the original source (in the Notes section), examples of these are: all of the “Bugwood” images, the Starrs’ collection from Hawaii and some photographers on Flickr. For all other images please contact the Photo Collection for use and copyright information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
