Lawn and environmental care: A study of attitudes and perceptions


You are invited to take part in a research project about the factors that influence intentions to engage in environmentally friendly lawn maintenance. 

The study is being conducted by Breeanna Morgan and will contribute to the honours project for her Bachelor of Psychology at James Cook University.

If you agree to be involved in the study, you will be invited to complete an online questionnaire and Implicit Association Test (IAT). 

The IAT involves a series of sorting tasks that will take approximately 5 to 10 minutes to complete. 

The questionnaire, which enquires about your attitudes and perceptions towards toward stormwater pollution and lawn maintenance, should take about 10 minutes of your time. 

You will require a Windows desktop or laptop computer (as it is not supported on Mac) and internet connection. 

You will also be required to install a plugin before you begin but don’t worry – the instructions appear onscreen and it takes less than 30 seconds to install. Browsers that support the plugin include Mozilla Firefox (recommended) and Internet Explorer.

Taking part in this study is completely voluntary and you can stop taking part in the study at any time without explanation or prejudice.

Your responses will remain completely anonymous. The data from the study will be used in an honours thesis and may also be used in future reports and publications. You will not be identified in any way.
