Wikispecies: Lasciate che l'elenco libero delle specie evolva!

Nell'agosto 2004, la Wikimedia Foundation ha pubblicato il nuovo progetto, Wikispecies. Questo sito web è stato creato per fornire un forum open source per le informazioni tassonomiche e biologiche

I contenuti di Wikispecies

Wikispecies interesserà una comunità seriamente interessata come scienziati, studenti o insegnanti. Ha lo scopo di collegare altri progetti della Wikimedia Foundation e non dovrebbe trasformarsi in una bio-Wikipedia. Ci sono persone nei progetti wiki che temono una separazione con Wikipedia, uno sviluppo che tutti noi vogliamo evitare. Pertanto, è stato sviluppato un template per i contenuti, che dovrebbe essere preso come linea guida. Alla fine, spetta agli utenti decidere cosa Wikispecies diventerà.

Il template fornisce una struttura di base raccomandata per le pagine:

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, just click "edit" at the top of any taxon page. To use a template, type {{Nameofclade}}, for example like this: {{Aves}} for birds, i.e. Aves.

NAME: Give the binomial name according to the original author of that name, for example: Meles meles Linnaeus, 1758.

REFERENCES: Give the publication in which the original description of the species was presented. To find this, try these sites:

VERNACULAR NAMES: Give names of the species in other languages (see Help for instructions). Links to articles on this species in the particular Wikipedias will be added automatically, for example [[en:Badger]] (links to the English Wikipedia on badgers) and [[de:Dachs]] (links to the German Wikipedia article on badgers).

OTHER: 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.

Wikispecies' milestones

On May 20, 2007 Wikispecies surpassed 100,000 articles. This milestone was recorded at Wikimedia News and submitted to the Wikipedia Signpost's Tip Line. A post was also made on Wikizine's wiki. For more milestones, see Wikispecies:Wikispecies milestones.

In 2015, we integrated with sister project Wikidata to coordinate structured data between other Wikimedia Foundation projects as well as the world's learners.

Futuro di Wikispecie

What will Wikispecies become eventually? As said before, this will widely depend on the users of this resource and on the will to share knowledge. Right now, there is an enormous pool of information online, which can be found on a variety of websites. One of these is, which is something like an official resource. Another very good source is Most other sources are protected by copyrights, often not very user-friendly, or limited to a select group of species.

This is very similar to the situation on general encyclopedias before 2001. Then, Wikipedia was released and became an instant success. Wikipedia has proved that the concept of self-administered information can work excellently. There is no reason to believe that Wikispecies should not become a valuable source of information.

Depending on the user's interests, the contributed content could make Wikispecies the largest archive of open-access pictures on British wildlife; a determination key for all European marine organisms; a teaching tool for middle school teachers; an archive of local vernacular names of herbs; a collection of weblinks to resources on corals; a reference for passionate herpetologists who want to learn about their pets; or simply an unlimited and expandable forum for all those who share a passionate interest in the life forms of this planet.

What Wikispecies becomes is up to you. We provide you with the technology; you add the content you want to see.
