We strive to make the site to comply as fully as possible with web standards outlined by the World Wide Web Consortium. Our site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for screen and print layouts.

How do I download PDFs?
NRE publishes many documents in Media Centre and Publications page, in Portable Document Format (PDF). This allows these documents to be downloaded and printed with their original formatting intact. These files require the Adobe Acrobat® Reader (Version 5.0 or higher) to be viewed and printed. This reader is free and may be downloaded from the Adobe Web site.
How do I download/view PowerPoint files?
NRE occasionally provides copies of PowerPoint presentations on the Web site. If you do not have Microsoft PowerPoint installed on your computer, you can still view these documents by using the PowerPoint Viewer. This software is free and may be downloaded from the Microsoft Web site.
How do I search for...?
NRE’s search engine is an easy way to find the information you are seeking.
Our Search supports both Wildcards and Boolean Operators when performing search queries.
You can enter a query like this directly into the search box:
This would return results that had keywords that started with “biodiversity” – it is very useful when you don’t know the exact spelling of something or you couldn’t remember the exact name of a keyword. Also, with the new addition of the refinement panel you could start off with a very broad wildcard search and then refine your results to quickly get exactly the results you are looking for.
This means that you can use things like “AND”, “OR”, parenthesis, =, >, <, <=, >=
Here’s an example of the type of query you could run using the syntax:
(“NRE” AND “environment”)
Boolean Operators have been around for a while but are usually only used by search power users. While wildcard searches allow users to do very broad searches, Boolean Operators allow users to do very specific searches so they can quickly find the results they are looking for that meet their search criteria.
