Terms used in Bionomenclature
Title: Terms used in Bionomenclature
Creator: Hawksworth, David L.
Abstract: This is a glossary of over 2,100 terms used in biological nomenclature - the naming of whole organisms of all kinds. It covers terms in use in the current editions of the different internationally mandated and proposed organismal Codes; i.e. those for botany (including mycology), cultivated plants, prokaryotes (archaea and bacteria), virology, and zoology, as well as the Draft BioCode and PhyloCode. The print version of the book is available online as a PDF document. Hard copies are planned with availability options currently under evaluation. GBIF also provides a web application serving the content of Terms Used in Bionomenclature. The web application features flexible search and browse capabilities with convenient grouping of terms around nomenclatural codes and term types. In addition, the glossary can be browsed and referenced using Semantic Web (Linked Data) features. [Information of the supplier]
