In January 2011 an exciting new 18 month project commenced which is aimed at updating the WATTLE identification key and delivering this through a web interface. This work will be undertaken as part of the Acacia theme within the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA). The project will deliver an updated interactive key to all described Australian Acacia species, including those that have been newly described since the publication of WATTLE in 2001. A dynamic fact sheet will be included for each species and this will include a description, line drawing, photographs (where available) and information on nomenclature, distribution, ecology, etc.
