1 In March, you will complete an online quiz each week. Quizzes will include multiple choice questions on the identity, habitat and moisture indicator group of the indicator plants in this study guide. Quiz: you will be shown the pictures in this study guide. A multiple-choice question will appear next to the pictures. You will have one minute to select the best answer for each question.

2 Family name common name Habitat (Elevation zone) Moisture Regime Indicated View the pictures of the indicator plants Look at stems, leaves, inflorescences, and other distinguishing characteristics Background colours = visual cue of moisture regime indicated Hyperlink to the eflora web page for each species

3 Learn the scientific name, common name, habitat and the moisture regime indicated by each plant. Notes: Scientific names = Latin, in italics Genus = capitalized species = lower case Family = capitalized Common name = lower case, unless it includes a formal noun View the pictures of the indicator plants Look at stems, leaves, inflorescences, and other distinguishing characteristics

4 The indicator plants are grouped by their moisture regimes = background colour of the slides. Groups will be tested in the following order: 1. Very Dry to Dry (red) 2. Fresh to Moist (green) 3. Dry to Moist (yellow + green) 4. Moist to Very Wet (blue) View the pictures of the indicator plants Look at stems, leaves, inflorescences, and other distinguishing characteristics

5 Groups will be tested in the following order: 1. Very Dry to Dry (red) 2. Fresh to Moist (green) 3. Dry to Moist (yellow + green) 4. Moist to Very Wet (blue) The first test will examine group 1 only. Test 2 will examine groups 1 + 2, Test 3 = groups 1 to 3, Test 4 = groups 1 to 4 View the pictures of the indicator plants Look at stems, leaves, inflorescences, and other distinguishing characteristics
