1. place phrases in quotes
"wind power"

2. use - or - for synonyms
cafo* or "concentrated animal feed operation*"

There are several ways to formulate your search. Keep in mind though that because this is a full text database, using - and - to connect your concepts will, in most cases, result in a large number of items and many will not be relevant.

Best to try and bring the word/s closer together.

Bring the words closer together:
/s = same sentence 
"atlantic salmon" /s (gmo* or "genetically modified organisim*")

/p = same paragraph
 "atlantic salmon" /p (gmo* or "genetically modified organisim*")

hlead(...) - limit to headline and lead paragraphs (you can use -and- here since you are limiting where the words appear
      hlead("atlantic salmon" and  (gmo* or "genetically modified organisim*"))

Filters on the left:
search within
date
publication type - then sources
etc.

Example:

"atlantic salmon" /p (gmo* or "genetically modified organisim*")
