Keep it easy to link to
It’s no effort to browse through numerous taxa data descriptions, record data collections and image galleries – if you aren’t in a hurry. It’s no effort to enter a specific search term and get the result list – if you remember this specific term.
But it is really easy to just bookmark the page where you found this interesting taxon information, that new herbarium specimen record, this beautyful plant picture, and share the URL with other interested users in your community, as you can do with any page offered on this site.
All search parameter, record IDs, image IDs, taxon IDs are available in the URL, because all requests are implemented as GET-request. That limits the number of possible parameters, but it makes possible the easy click-and-link.
