in case you havn't read my initial e-mail: I am currently trying to
establish a wiki-based, open species directory at www.wikispecies.org/,
which is meant to become a wikimedia project.
I got some support for contents by a range of wikipedia writers, but what I
really need now are developers who set up a basic structure so that we can
get started. Jimbo Wales suggested that the inital wikispecies would be
basically the same as the one of wikipedia.
I evaluated some species data bases and based on that I worked out a basic
structure: a main page with search functions and sub-pages for an individual
species/genus/family and so on, whith different features that can be
searched for (for details see bottom of this e-mail).
If you think you can help, please let me know - every support is much
MAIN PAGE AND SUBPAGE STRUCTURE
Best viewed at: www.fishbase.org (though for a rather professional user,
therefore a bit extensive). Main page would need to be a search page that
provides a determination key as well.
A general division in standard search and advanced search with details
would be good.
NAME (common name, scientific names, synonyms, taxonomic number, etc.)
CLASSIFICATION KEY (classification, would be perfect if we could get a PDA
compatible one for field applications)
FAMILY (loads of detail search functions, see at fishbase)
DISTRIBUTION (loads of detail search functions see at fishbase: country)
ECOSYSTEM (loads of detail search functions, see at fishbase)
TOPIC (special topics and articles)
TOOLS (loads of detail search functions, see at fishbase; including a
BIODIVERSITY MAP (once again: see at fishbase)
MEDIA (maps, films, pictures, if available)
Subpage for species:
CLASSIFICATION (as tree diagram, looks like a path)
MORPHOLOGY (incl. picture or illustration)
RESILIANCE / REPRODUCTION
HABITAT / ENVIRONMENT
MEDIA (images, maps, diagrams, videos, etc.)
DISTRIBUTION (geographically and in terms of countries)
