This form searches IBIS TaxonName data in the repository. All elements, aside from Year and Rank, are lucene text searches. The lucene query syntax is described here .

Try to limit your searches to unusual terms. A search on the name string "common wombat" will take longer and return more matches than "wombat" alone.
