Welcome to Wikispecies!
Hello, and welcome to Wikispecies! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages you might like to see:
- Help:Contents provides a good introduction to editing Wikispecies.
- Templates are there to help you to follow our syntax and formatting standards.
- Have a look at Done and to do.
If you have named a taxon, then it is likely that there is (or will be) a Wikispecies page about you, and other pages about your published papers. Please see our advice and guidance for taxon authors.
If you have useful images to contribute to Wikispecies, please upload them at Wikimedia Commons. This is also true for video or audio files containing bird songs, whale vocalization, etc.
Please sign your comments on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your username (if you're logged in) and the date. Please also read the Wikispecies policy What Wikispecies is not. If you need help, ask me on my talk page, or in the Village Pump. Again, welcome! Andyboorman (talk) 10:03, 8 April 2023 (UTC)
Taxonomic problems. edit
The 2010 paper synonmising Pennisetum and Cenchrus has resulted in complete taxonomic nonsense, which unfortunately has been blindly accepted by online authorities, such as POWO, Hassler and World Flora. MBG/Tropicos is much more circumspect. WS can not make original research and at the moment does not allow taxon pages for comb. ined. I was hoping that by now that the 8/9 Cenchrus sp. ined. would have been corrected, no such luck. Therefore, I apologise for reverting your well meaning blanking and redirecting of Pennisetum. Given the problems we need to raise this at the pump and ask the community for their opinions regarding taxon pages for comb. ined.. It worth noting that IPNI will not accept comb. ined., as there is no formal treatment that follows ICN. Please I beg patience. Andyboorman (talk) 11:55, 17 February 2024 (UTC)
