As quoted from Jimbo Wales:

As you know, the creation of this project was somewhat controversial in some quarters, and so I propose an early development of a strong non-forking policy guideline here, illustrating how wikispecies significantly differs from articles that would appear in a general encyclopedia.
Here are some of the key points that the board put forward when we approved this project:
We set up the WikiSpecies wiki for biologists to begin organizing the project.
We propose that as the software is developed, it should work to strongly support integration with wikipedia, to help avoid duplication of effort, i.e. to avoid forking.
We ask the participants on wikispecies to particularly think about how their work should differ from a generalist encyclopedia.
