Discussions pending:

POV:

It has been suggested that the Name section should be the first section on a page.

It would make some sense, IMHO.

Kempm:

For most organisms the term type-locality can be used.

For Bacteria and Archaea, I'd like to use type-strain. A chemical formulae that is widely used and that can be found in publications.

For lichenous organisms, I'd like to use the term Host-substratum/Locality, as I'm using on many Fungi pages.

Some Fungi can be determined on the host they are feeding on. And Ascomycetes taxonomy relies heavily on this.

Will there be more exceptions?

Kempm:

If the name section describes a taxon above species level for example Genus-level, add the term type species.

This is the specimen on which the genus is based on.

For Familia, use type genus etc.

Kempm:

I have been contributing a bit different, and added the synonyms section as a lvl 2 (main) section.

Also I added information like homotypic synonyms, basionym, competing synonym, and non-competing synonym.

POV:

It has been suggested to rename this section to Interwiki.

KempmPOV:

The name Interwiki makes more sense to me, since it describes better what it is.

Vernacular names is not just a list of names, but a list of links to the right (existant) pages?

Who is Gen. Wikispecies? Edit

Shouldn't this page be called, say, "General Wikispecies information" or "General infomation about Wikispecies" or just "General information"? - dcljr (talk) 01:47, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Return to "General Wikispecies" page.
