Is there an easy way to expand the taxonomic checklist? Yes.  By double-clicking an item in the hierarchical checklist you can see all plant names one rank lower in the list.

If you double-click while holding down the <Ctrl> key, you can see all plant names two full ranks lower in the list.  When sub-ranks are available (such as sub-class or sub-order or sub-family), the sub-ranks down two full ranks are also included.  See the example below.

By double-clicking the sub-class Equisetidae while holding down the <Ctrl> key, all intermediate ranks down to family (Equisetaceae) are expanded.
