The Search box in the header has different search options depending on where you are on the site:

  • All finds all content that includes the search term.
  • Page only searches for terms in the page content type
  • Taxonomy only searches for terms in the species lists and returns the taxon page matching the terms.
  • Media searches images by file name or the scientific or common (vernacular) name the image has been attached to - see example below
