- Wildcard search is not supported here - to find names containing a substring, the species search should be used instead.
- result list ordering and relevance is indeed not clear. May require revision, see e.g. the list resulting from a search for "cirs": http://uat.gbif.org/occurrence/search?TAXON_KEY=cirs
- there is a misunderstanding about combination of query parameters. When combining several names in a search, they are OR-ed
Enquiring by email to better understand the intention of the search composition.
