      • Taxonomy is unstable data
    • Distinction between identification and t agging
      • Sequence

  • 5. Managing Taxonomy
    • ADW taxonomy not based on any single source
      • Composite classification built from multiple sources (Mammal Species of the World, Howard & Moore, ITIS)
    • Past: same database as managed was used in projects
      • In theory, updates could be made public faster
      • Ancestry indexed as materialized paths (best match for editing vs. search)
  • 6. Managing Taxonomy: Future
    • Source data managed separately, to minimize duplication of data between classifications
    • Build composite classifications
    • Export composite classifications as simpler hierarchies to import into other project databases
    • UUIDs to maintain consistency
