FCBS Bromeliad Species Online Database: Search Help

You may search on a single field in the database or a combination of two or more fields.

If you wish to search for all the Aechmea species, including synonyms, select Aechmea from the Genus: field and click the "View Records" button.
Alternatively, if you wish to search for all the Aechmea species without the synonyms (to get a count of valid species), select Aechmea from the Genus: field and No from the Is Synonym: field.

Returning a list of species names for a particular genus is one of the useful things you can do with this database. Be sure to select a "Sort Order" for your query. You can sort by "Species" to return an alphabetical listing or you can sort by "Species #", a list sorted this way will show you how the species are related to each other

If you are looking for a particular plant, just enter its name in the Name: field. Case does not matter unless you select "Match Case" from the Search Options at the bottom of the Search form.

If you have questions or comments about this database please email: webmaster@fcbs.org
