Finding taxonomic entries
   Compleat Botanica    Using the software    Finding   
 
 
   

 

The Find command takes two forms:  one for finding specimen records and one for finding taxonomic entries.  See the document Finding specimen records for more about that.

To begin the search for taxonomic entries be sure that your current view is the Checklist View.  In addition, the Find command only works when the "current focus" is the List View.  See What is the significance of the fancy borders? for more about this.

 

 

Here are some details about the Find window:

Item Description
Find what Type a taxonomic entry or the first few letters of an entry that you are searching for.
Exact full word match When this is checked, partial matches are not considered.  For example, searching for "Acer" will not return entries for "Aceraceae".
Find next Searches forward through the Checklist to find the next match.  Automatically opens the taxonomic tree to the entry matching the request. 
Find prev Searches backward through the Checklist to find the previous match.  Automatically opens the taxonomic tree to the entry matching the request. 
  The bottom portion of this window shows the name(s) found and their rank.
