Add names of synonyms to the typing helper list
At present when you start to type a name to search by taxon, suggestions are offered that can be selected to avoid additional typing.
The list of typing suggestions only includes names accepted by Weakley and needs to have added all names that can link by synonymy. For example, if you type Tofieldia the only suggestion is Tofieldia glabra, but if you persist and type Tofieldia glutinosa the map of Triantha glutinosa appears. We need to add Tofieldia glutinosa and other synonyms to the list of acceptable names for the spelling helper.

Fixed. Added ajax-based auto-completion dropdown list, which retrieves data dynamically from the database based on user input in the text box. It only retruns a certain number of matches (currently 10).
Previously, the names are hardcoded in the client-side javasript codes, which is hard to maintain and takes longer time to download.
