Advanced Search
Advanced searches allow you to choose whether you search the entire collection of plant records (Search Type: Combined) or separately search the living collections or herbarium data. In general, every blank you fill in will restrict your search: thus, a search for "Hess" in collector last name with "Ulmus" in the genus will only return elm species that were by a "Hess" (typically, William Hess, the former herbarium curator). Fields are also typically wildcarded at both ends: "mo" in Collector first name will return "Morris" or "Raymond" or any other name with "mo" in it.
