Australian Bush Food Plant Quiz
Bush Tucker and Edible Weeds
Test out your skill at identifying Australian wild-growing plant foods. The questions are made up randomly using plant food information from survival.ark.net.au.
This is the third of many forthcoming quiz pages on survival.ark.net.au. (The first was the spider quiz and the second was the bird quiz.)
Some of the quizzes will be a lot easier than others. The plant quiz is the hardest so far, since there's 187 plant images
in the initial version (of which 10 are chosen randomly), and most people know birds a lot better than plants. The current (first) edition of the spider quiz only has a few images.
Also, this quiz will sometimes be easier or harder depending on what plant pictures, and what multiple choice options, are randomly chosen.
There are both native "bush tucker" and introduced "edible weed" plants in the quiz currently. Eventually you'll be able to choose to do either of those, or both. And also to have the questions in
the plants' common names, or scientific names, or both.
WARNING: Never eat
plants that are growing in an area where they may have been sprayed
with pesticides or herbicides (weed killers), or where the water
supply to the area could be polluted, such as from urban or industrial
run-off. Never eat any part of any wild growing plant unless you are certain you can identify it. Being certain means you have developed a maturity of skill in identifying plants. It does not mean you are pretty sure it looks just like "that plant you saw once on some website".
Please read the disclaimer and other instructional material before even thinking about eating any of these wild foods yourself.
Computer-based multiple choice quizzes can be an excellent way to learn about nature. I got "A" grades in university Biology thanks to many hours cramming multiple choice practice questions in the computer lab.
NOTICE: This is a very new page and will be improved soon... There may still possibly be some problems with how it works.
