Instructions for searching the Dipterocarpaceae data set

To search the data set, enter some or all of the details of the specimen in which you are interested into the appropriate fields of the form. Enter collectors' names in the Collector name field, collection number(s) in the Collection number field and taxon names in the Taxon name field

Searches using the Taxon name field will return a list of specimens which were last determined to the name that you have entered. If a specimen has been previously determined to the name you enter but has subsequently been redetermined, it will NOT be returned. 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 look up collection 495 by Mark Newman, enter:

Newman in the Collector name field, and 495 in the Collection number 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 Newman 495 and Burgess SAN18716, enter:

Newman, Burgess in the Collector name field, and 495, SAN18716 in the Collection number field.
