Lucid3 System Requirements
In LBAM ID you will find interactive keys, fact sheets, descriptions, and images to aid in the identification of tortricid moths encountered during light brown apple moth surveys in California. The interactive key is a Lucid3 Java Applet. Lucid3 (Lucid version 3) is software for creating and using interactive identification keys. Lucid was developed by the Centre for Biological Information Technology at the University of Queensland in Australia. Visit the Lucidcentral website for more information on Lucid and Lucid3.
HTML pages in LBAM ID outside of the Lucid3 interactive key are viewable without the Lucid3 Applet Player and are all accessible from the home page. Please check the Lucid3 system requirements below if you would like to use the interactive key.
