The TaxonIds template summarizes taxonomical identifiers for use in the "External links" section of pages describing taxa. We currently support the following fields:
|wikispecies||The page name on WikiSpecies.|
|name||The taxon name. This will default to the page name if not provided, or the Wikispecies link if that is provided, and is automatically italicised. Higher taxa (families and above) should have this field set to prevent the taxon name appearing in italics. It should also be set where the Wikispecies link contains a disambiguation term (e.g. use |
|ncbi||The NCBI Taxonomy identifier.|
|eol||The Encyclopedia of Life identifier.|
|itis||The Integrated Taxonomic Information System identifier.|
|worms||The World Register of Marine Species identifier.|
|gbif||The Global Biodiversity Information Facility identifier.|
|paleodb||The Paleobiology Database identifier.|
|others||Links to any other databases. For example, you could set this to: [http://arctos.database.museum/name/Mus%20musculus Arctos].|
Which databases should we include?
- The database identifier must state the identifier on this page, indicating that the identifier itself is uniquely used to identify this entry.
- A database should encompass a certain number of species to be included here.
- This template must support taxa at all levels: species names, family names, kingdoms, et al.
- At some point, we should encode the ids into a short string where it can be read automatically.
