IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Arctos taxonomy has changed - learn more here.
  • Taxon Name is the "namestring" or "scientific name," the "data" that is used to form Identifications and the core of every Taxonomy record.
  • Taxon Term is the data value of either a classification term ("Animalia") or or classification metadata (such as name authors).
  • Term Type is the rank ("kingdom") for classification terms, in which role it may be NULL, and the label for classification metadata ("author text").
  • Source indicates the source of a classification (NOT a taxon name). Some classifications are local; most come from GlobalNames.
  • Common Names are vernacular term associated with taxon names, and are not necessarily English, correct, or common.
