Extracts are provided in CSV format, using DwC attribute names where possible.
All object identifiers are actionable IRI.
Additional attribute names are taken from the DwC issue tracker or from the NSL schema.
These flattened extracts are a high level abstraction from the underlying data objects. The queries are complex and subject to frequent review so please report errors and discrepancies if they are found.
These datasets are incomplete, works in progress - for details of the specific status of each, please contact the custodian.
- that have been used in APC including phrase names, common names and hybrid names;
- that have not yet treated in APC such as the Orchids;
- Algae, Fungi and Bryophytes (these will be replaced with the names from their source datasets when they are incorporated into the NSL)
- hybrid formulae.
The extract now includes many names (such as isonyms) that may seem superfluous or unnecessary complications outside of their nomenclatural or taxonomic context. The solution here may be to provide a number of expurgated editions, tailoring to particular use cases.
APC is incomplete. This is most noticeable in the taxonomic arrangement. Parent taxa with taxonomic status 'DeclaredBT' are hypothetical entries (for the purpose of maintaining the tree - then mostly for excluded taxa) that should be removed from this extract. They will disappear as the APC coverage incorporates these taxa.
