Searching for binomials

Recommended Posts

Let's say I want to search for a specific palm using its binomial... For example Dypsis rivularis.

I don't want a list of every time either search words have been used; all of the dypsis threads or a slew of Ravanea threads pertaining to rivularis... I am specifically targeting "Dypsis rivularis" Is there a way to accomplish this? Like using quotes around the nomenclature or a plus symbol between the two parts of the name?

Any ideas?

Hi Bill,

perhaps i don't understand really the question but if it is in PT search, I ofen do that :

"Dypsis rivularis" with double quotes. and then for your exemple PT return 18 results.

and then when I'm in the thread I make a ctrl F/ctrl C in Firefox to find directly the post.

not all the threads have the search words highlighted in the header, but the couple of words are there.

the good thing is with posts with multi pages we go directly on the first page with the couple words but we can also get multiple results for the same thread.

hope it helps.
