FILTERS: The new Life List+ format includes filters that allow users to exclude subspecies, or extinct taxa, and various combinations of these contents, if so desired. Thanks to Peter Kovalik for creating this package.
To vary the taxonomic ranks displayed, click on the black button in cell B1 (Rank). To exclude subspecies, for example, scroll down the lower list and click “ssp”. Press “ok” if needed. The check mark will disappear and the spreadsheet will recompose without subspecies. To return to the full spreadsheet, click ”clear filter” at the bottom right of the filter display.
To exclude extinct taxa, click on the black button in cell C1, and then on the little cross (†) in the lower list. To display only extinct taxa, click instead on “blank”.
