You have several options to search in the web, according to the type of content that you are looking for:
- Any content | For a general search, you can use the search engine box that is in the top menu of the page.
- Species | To search a particular species, we recommend you to use the Species section, where you can choose the search method between map or list.
- Observations | Get the latest observations from the section under that name. If you want to see all the observations for a particular species, you can go to the section Species and view them on the map, or browse a list of them in the catalogue.
Watch or follow contents
You can wat species, routes and spaces to be alerted every time there are new threats, records or data modifications. You can choose which ones to follow and you can also quit anytime. Just go to the content that you are watching and click Unfollow.
Validated and no validated contents
The contents marked as validated have been reviewed by the editors of the web, who are botanical experts that support the credibility of the information of species, routes, spaces and records. "No validated" contents have not been reviewed by editors, so we are not responsible for their accuracy.
«I made a record, but do not know the species...»
Do not worry. Surely someone can identify it for you. When you cover a record data, check the option I don't know what species is this. Your record will go to the catalog tab Identify them, and other users can linked it with the right species.
