I am really appreciative of this initiative to compile land-use information. I was wondering if there was a way to search for information by author or presenter. If not I think this would be a really good addition to the webpage.

Thank you for your question. You can search by author or presenter name in our search bar, and anything related will come up. If you want to browse by author or presenter (without entering any names), however, we currently don't have that function. We will consider that in future upgrades.
