We are conducting experiments designed to better understand the features of
information retrieval systems that help people locate floristic
information. We need ten volunteers.

Earn $50.00 for participating in an approximately 2.5-hour session!
Participation involves working through a training session, completing brief
questionnaires, several plant identification tasks and a discussion group.

Qualified subjects
o must be familiar with botanical terminology
o must have experience with vascular plants
o must be native English speakers
o may be novices at using visual information retrieval
interfaces (i.e. no experience necessary)

If you are interested in participating,
