A part of the species quiz could be completed in context of the research project“WWF, BG and BSM – ‘BIB 2.0’: Botanical platform for communications for Bavaria and Germany”.
After logging in at the species quiz you can start it: a medical plant is selected randomly and by clicking on conforming characters next to the photos on the side bar, you describing the plant. Here one screenshot (German UserInterface):
At the end you can guess the name of the plant. To motivate even more the description of the plant, a score system is implemented where every described character gets one point (also characters recognised as not available). Additionally, if you know the medical plant’s name you get 3 extra points.
