Notes on Searching:
- Searches are from UW-Stevens Point (UWSP) specimens records entered to date.
Searches are not case sensitive
Searches for Scientific Name, Genus, Species and Collector
are wildcarded at the END only. For example, typing "er" in the Genus field
will result in a query which will select only genera starting with er -Erigeron,
and not genera ending with er ---Aster. Collector's name format is Last,
First M. or Last, F.M. - it is wildcarded at the end so "Last, First",
"Last, F (note no period)", and "Last" yield the same results
Searches for Location Name are
wildcarded at BOTH ends.
Data for Wisconsin or Federal rare plant specimens will not
be returned if location information is requested below County level.
Location Name and TRS are combined into one criterium as (Location
Name OR (Township AND Range AND Section))
All criteria are combined with "AND" so the more fields
used the narrower the search
The simpler the Collector and Place Names the broader the
search. This allows for differences in spellings, abbreviations, spacing,
Use " subsp.", " var."
, " f.", and " X " (hybrid)
in Scientific Name search -without authors.
Township, Range, and Section MUST follow the formats given
(note leading zeros)
To check nomenclature, refer to Vascular
Plants name search.
