Metadata Record -- Taxonomy Section
The Taxonomy section of the Edit Window defines the taxonomic information for the resource. A Taxonomic Collection in mdEditor is described using a hierarchy or 'Classification' consisting of a discretionary number of levels from Kingdom to Subspecies. The mdEditor's implementation also allows multiple entities to be ascribed to each level of the hierarchy which effectively supports branching the hierarchy. The Taxonomic Collection further includes information about observers, specimens, and how the species identification was made.
Although the Taxonomy section was originally developed to define biological hierarchies, it may also be used to define hierarchies in other disciplines.
While not strictly a hierarchy, taxonomy could be used to document layered systems or stratigraphic resource.
When one or more Taxonomic Collections have been defined the Taxonomy section window will look similar to the image below.
Click the Add Collection button in the Secondary Sidebar to add the next Taxonomic Collection.
