Description: The default species search returns nothing when the form is empty:

It should return all.
Similarily links from the portal make use of facet filters, but contain no q search param:

--- issue around dataset search fixed, but worth checking again when fixing the species search. Its a shared based class ---

There are links from around the portal such as:

which fail, but if you append q= it works.

best fix is to default that behavour so the first URL works
