To find whether a particular species is listed or cited, use the search species link in the navigation panel on the left side of these pages. All species corresponding to a particular query (e.g., a vernacular name or genus name) will be listed. This function may also be used to list all species in a genus, or family, or sharing a common name.
Under the browse species link, species are ordered by Family, Genus and Species Names. There are 330+ entries.
Please see Paul's Comments [About the Species (PB)] for details about the nomenclature.
On each page for each species, there is a default photo or 'species representative image' that comes up when the page is opened. Other photos of that species, if available, are listed below it; selecting those links will bring up the other photos.
Clicking on the image ID listed after 'Current Photo' brings up information about the owner of the photo, and the nature of the original photo (e.g. 35 mm slide) and any other web versions of that photo (e.g., larger size). Currently there is only one version of each photo in the Species Section of the database.
Use the search topics function to search for presence of key words in a Topics page.
Under browse topics, topics are organized in a hierarchical scheme. If the label under the Title column is highlighted as a link (dark green/orange when you pass over it), there are subtopics underneath it; if it isn't, there are no subtopics. Clicking on view under the Action column at the right, brings up the Topic page. See Example.
Once you are in a Topic page, clicking on the image ID listed after 'Current Photo' brings up information about the owner of the photo, and the nature of the original photo (e.g. 35 mm slide) and any other web versions of that photo (e.g., larger size). Anne is providing large versions of most of her photos to allow viewers to see more of the detail in these habitat photos.
