  Not so obvious # 5 [ Previous ] [ Next ]

 

Does the botanical name have to be in every specimen list? No.  As a reasonable first guess, new filters start out with the botanical name as the first column of every filter.  This is entirely optional.

If you choose a different item to replace it, you will have a surprisingly different looking specimen list.  This is because the first item in the filter is always displayed in the prominent top-half of each specimen row.  This position does not scroll left and right with the rest of the list, but stays fixed to the left-hand side of the list.

An example with common names shown first.
The same list, but with hay fever pollen shown in the prominent top-half. ...............................................
The same list a third time, with stature in the fixed position.
