This key was developed by Susan Yardley in 2012 as an Endeavour Teacher Fellow. She was funded by the New Zealand Government through the New Zealand Science, Mathematics and Technology Teacher Fellowship Scheme, administered by The Royal Society of New Zealand. The project was also supported by Landcare Research via Core funding for Crown Research Institutes from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s Science and Innovation Group, New Zealand, and contributes to the vision of the Styx Living Laboratory Trust.
Susan would like to gratefully acknowledge the support of Herbarium Staff, especially Phil Novis who was her supervisor on this project and Kerry Ford and David Glenny who gave advice. Images for the key were contributed by Landcare Staff as well as Willem van den Ende, Christine McClure, Mike Bowie and Trevor James.
