A brief overview of some Kew

Sharing information between projects A brief overview of some Kew “key” projects, potential areas of overlap and possible exchange mechanisms.

“All plants are hybrids, but some are greater bastards than others” Franz Thonner (photo L Grillich, Vienna 1910) from “Thonner’s analytical key to the families of flowering plants”

Database rights (structured data)

Methods

Partly managed by TCS and SDD standards

XML so easily extended (in house)

Standards would need to be formally changed

We could … Develop a shared feature list that would at least be useful for regional keys to higher taxa (genera). Illustrate these features with “standard” drawings and develop ways of linking to specimen & other images in TOAD. Develop methods for Concept and IPR tracking in conjunction with external projects (eg. IdentifyLife).
