Hi everyone and thanks for looking
I really hope I'm not asking a daft question, but I want to exclude a term unless it comes with another term in a search containing multiple strings. In my precise example, I am looking at global forests and I want studies from India and Africa to be included but only where the forest type is "temperate forest". I don't want any results with India or Africa in the title/abstract/keywords unless the term 'temperate forest' is also there.
I have several search strings which work together so an example would be:
woodland OR woods OR forest
fragmentation OR disturbance
"soil communities" OR (soil* AND biota)
If I add to the first string OR (India AND "temperate forest"), I will get studies about temperate forests in India, but I will also get studies about every other forest/woodland type in India due to the other primary keywords, 'forest', 'woodland' etc. So is there any way to exclude India but keep the India + "temperate forest"?
