Templates under consideration

There is still some work to be done to determine what information to include and what information NOT to include (we don't want too much duplication with Wikipedia). In particular, even though it says Vernacular names below, they are currently only included if there is a link to a Wikipedia article.

There is also some new discussion about the layout and format of these pages

see Wikispecies:Village pump/Archive 3#Revised proposal


Currently, Panthera tigris is seen as an example of an "ideal" Wikispecies page.

How a taxon page content should be structured

Look at Help:General Wikispecies

Taxonavigation: Give the most commonly used clades of the taxonomic tree and allows a convenient navigation through all groups of life. To find templates for taxonavigation, see template:sp for an example. To use a template, use {{Nameofclade}}, like this: {{Aves}}.

Name: Give the binominal name according to the original author of that name. For example: Meles meles (Linnaeus, 1758).

Synonyms (subsection): Give a list of other scientific names that have been used for the same species. These names are no longer valid but are still important because there is information out there under these names that can be used for the valid name still. SYNONYMS is a subsection of the NAME section. For more details, please see: Help:Name section#Synonyms. See Anopheles triannulatus for an example.

References: Give the publication in which the original description of the species was presented. This means an actual publication citation NOT a website. Also, make these references complete and user-friendly. For example, unabbreviate "Insec. Inscit. Menstr." like this "Insecutor Inscitiae menstruus." To find references, try these sites:

(User Jmb is compiling a more comprehensive list.)

Vernacular names: Give names of the species in other languages by using the {{VN|en=Red Fox|de=Rotfuchs|nl=Vos|ko=붉은여우|etc...}} template.

In addition to the vernacular names, give links to articles on this species in the particular Wikipedia, for example: [[en:badger]] (links to the English Wikipedia on badgers), [[de:Dachs]] (links to the German Wikipedia article on badgers). These links will appear in the sidebar on the lower, left side of the page.

Try to avoid other information. If you must, add it to the discussion page of the taxon. To preserve understandability for all languages, further information for a particular taxon should be put on the respective Wikipedia.

Taxa formatting: General rules

To achieve a standard look across Wikispecies, we have put up some rules for entering new taxa.

When there are more than one of a certain taxon, the plural form of the taxon should be used. Multiple taxa of the same level should then be separated by a nonbreakingspace-dash-space combination ( - ). For genera and lower use above templates.

Taxon (singular) Taxon (plural)
Phylum Phyla
Classis Classes
Ordo Ordines
Familia Familiae
Divisio Divisiones
Cohors Cohortes
Sectio Sectiones
