Components of Bisby Core There are 5 components in a Bisby Core standard document: The taxonomic tree component: describe the information of a taxonomic tree, such as the name of the tree, the author of tree, etc. The taxon information component: describe the taxonomic relevant data of taxon; The data object component: describes attributes of taxon in text and/or multimedia format; The reference component: describe information about references; The people component: describe information of expert who make scrutiny.
Data Source of EOL China All species data in EOL China are from species databases of animal, plant and microbial building up by Institute of Zoology, Institute of Botany and Institute of Microbiology, CAS, which collect data from monographs, scientific papers, website and reviewed by taxonomists. The names of taxonomists are listed in the species pages as an object of the species. The copyright information are attached with the object data as in EOL website.
