Fiona Greatbanks - Key to the Vacular Plant Family of the Hawaiian Islands
Lucid3 Builder was used to assemble a key capable of helping a person with minimal botany experience to easily key out a plant from a list of sixty-six plant families commonly found on Oahu. Thirteen features and 193 states were added to help define what characteristics might be checked for. Families received a check mark for each characteristic that they contained, helping to create a spreadsheet and make it possible for those using the Lucid Player to select the features pertaining to the family at hand. Images and definitions were added to help those with minimal botany experience to understand what they were looking for, as well as URL links from family names to web pages about the families to help confirm identity.
