Hints and tips for creating and printing lists:
- Our lists are formatted to look good when printed. however, you may need to adjust your browser's print settings to achieve the best possible printout:
- For lists with more than 4 to 5 counties, try printing in landscape mode. Landscape mode can usually be selected in your printer's Page Setup dialog box - in your browser look in the File Menu for a Page Setup option. Users running Netscape on a Mac may not have this option.
- Many web browsers remove background shading and images from a web page when printing. This will greatly affect the appearance of our printed lists. To force your browser to print backgrounds and images, use your browser's Print Preview menu option (if available) and select the appropriate choices given there.
- Regional lists covering several adjacent counties provide much more complete species representations than do single-county lists.
- File sizes for these lists can range from 100 KB for a single county to 4.2 MB for a list covering the entire state.
- Most single county list includes anywhere from 200 to 1,100 names. Currently, our entire state list includes about 3,600 names (an over-estimate of the number of taxa since names are included at both specific and subspecific levels).
- Some of our better represented counties include: King, Snohomish, San Juan, Clallam, Jefferson, Chelan, Kittitas, Yakima, Klickitat.
- Our most poorly represented counties include those in southwest Washington (Wahkiakum, Cowlitz, Clark, Pacific) and southeast Washington (Walla Walla, Columbia, Garfield, Asotin). We encourage collectors to help us fill the gaps in our knowledge of these counties.
