The search fields use the SQL convention that % matches 0 or more characters of any value. For example, to search for a genus that starts with "Ab", type "ab%" in the genus field (without the double quotes, of course). Searching is case-insensitive. To match any single character, type "_" (without the double quotes).
Hint: if you're looking for bee, type in %bee to match honey bee, very yellow-faced bee, etc.
Specifying only the "Additional search fields" in a search may take a very long time because so many records will match. It is suggested that these be used only with the main fields above.
All checked items in the Mode of Origin fields will be "OR'ed" together, e.g. endemic and indigenous checked means the Mode of Origin will include either.)
All checked items in the Distribution fields will be "AND'ed" together, e.g.Kauai and Oahu checked means the distribution must include at least Kauai AND Oahu.
