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:
||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".
||Searches forward through
the Checklist to find the next match. Automatically opens the
taxonomic tree to the entry matching the request.
