up to now a Wikipedia sister-project meant that its content is (mostly) 
disjoint with the content of any other Wikipedia project. That means that an 
article is either in A  or in B (or = exclusive or). 

The proposed project "wikispecies" will have a huge overlap with existing 
Wikipedia articles. Therefore using the term sister-project is IMHO wrong, 
and calling it a "partial fork" is much closer to reality.

best regards,
