Identification keys

In the framework of project Dryades, the research group of the Dept. of Life Sciences (University of Trieste) has developed many online identification keys, as well as several textual versions downloadable in pdf format. In 2018, a new version of software FRIDA, by S. Martellos, was created to start work on an interactive lichen flora of Italy. FRIDA3.0 permits to create keys with both a multi-entry and a dichotomous query interface. Several keys are also available in stand-alone versions for mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, via the free app KeyToNature (available for both Android and iOS devices).
