Search function

Species -
Searching under the 'species' heading, the text box responds to both common and scientific species names. The searches may be narrowed by indicating the desired 'habitat type' and / or 'organism type' by using the appropriate drop down list. If you would like to browse through all available species images then simply press the search button, leaving the text box empty and the drop down lists on 'All'.

Impacts / Management -
Searching under the 'impacts / management' heading will provide images of various wildlife management practices, landscape shots or images showing the impacts of non-native species. Searches may be narrowed down to habitat type by using the drop down habitat list. The text search box may be used to specify images containing, for example a particular management practice (e.g. shooting, trapping, etc). If you would like to browse through all available images then simply press the search button, leaving the text box empty and the drop down list on 'All'
