Instructions for searching the Flora Europaea data set

To search the data set, enter one or more words from the scientific name in which you are interested into the appropriate fields of the form. For example, enter family names in the Family name field, Genus names in the Genus name field etc.

The Taxon name field allows for searches at ranks not covered in the other fields eg subspecies, section etc.

The Rank name field will return names at any given rank, eg. select genus from the popup list to restrict the hits to the rank genus. This field is intended for use in conjunction with the taxon name field.

The results of the searches from each field will be combined using a logical AND. That is only searches that match ALL the criteria entered will be returned.

N.B. Entries ARE case sensitive.

To lookup Gentiana acaulis L., enter:

Gentiana in the genus name field, and acaulis in the Species name field.

Multiple search criteria can be entered into each field and should be separated by a comma. For each field, the values returned will be combined using a logical OR.

To look up both Gentiana acaulis L. and Ajuga acaulis Brocchi, enter:

Gentiana, Ajuga in the genus name field, and acaulis in the Species name field.
