How do I create a bibliography of scientific names?

You can generate a bibliography for a scientific name by either searching for a name (see instructions) or using the following URL structure:

Where Scientific_name is any uninomial, binomial, or trinomial. Replace spaces with the underscore ( _ )character.

Examples: (Orchid family) (Great white shark) (Great Cormorant)

Bibliographies use the canonical form of the species name and include results for both the canonical and long name (with author/date) forms. Bibliography URLs for the long name include references for both name forms.
