Deep links to maps
I should have also asked this in the message I just sent about the Flora of the
Southeast mapping site. Is there a way in the current system to specify a URL
that will take the user to a particular species rather than having to go
through the search process? In my website as it currently stands, users can
click on links to go to specific USDA Plants state maps to see where they
report the species. E.g.:
I would like to have a link that would just take them straight to the map of
the entire region for the species on your site. I realize that the site is
still in the formative stages, but I think it would be good to consider making
this possible in the future if you haven't already.

Sorry, the current links created automatically by the email server are broken at the space in the species names. Please try the new links below with space replaced by '%20'.

Getting very close.
We still have the probelm that if there are multiple subspecific taxa, then the link goes to the list of taxa rather than the map requested.
Consider -- http://www.herbarium.unc.edu/seflora/species.htm?species=Acer%20negundo
Also, subspecific taxa maps fail, even if one inserts %20 for the spaces. Consider -- http://www.herbarium.unc.edu/seflora/species.htm?species=Acer%20negundo%20var.%20texanum
