- TaxonX - Marking up taxonomic literature
TaxonX - Marking up taxonomic literature¶
TaxonX seems most promising because of its flexibility and simplicity for marking up taxonomic literature. For other document based standards see wiki:TaxonomicDataStandards#Documentbasedformats. We like to explore the potential and problems of TaxonX on this ssite a bit, listing as many existing TaxonX documents with their original source as possible.
The problems listed here might be solvable by introducing new tags into TaxonX, probably from a separate (EDIT) namespace.
Synonymy type missing¶
TaxonX seems to have no way to markup the kind of synonymy that is being described
