Description

Presentation by Simon Mayo at the KikForum
Abstract:
As part of the CATE project we are developing keys in Lucid 3 to the genera of Araceae, and to the genus Anthurium (ca. 800spp.), Arum and Philodendron. The key to Arum is already online. These keys will be incorporated into a web-based taxonomic revision of the Araceae family as the plant model group for the project. Anthurium presents a particular challenge as it is a very large and difficult genus, within which it is currently nearly impossible for non-specialists to determine plants to species. We hope the key will go some way to solving this problem.

Project Leaders : Prof. Charles Godfray (Oxford Univ., Imperial Coll., Kew Trustee), Dr Malcolm Scoble (Keeper of Entomology, NHM) NERC-funded Original institutional Partners : RBG Kew, NHM, Imperial College. Major collaborators : Oxford University, Missouri Botanical Garden.

 

Feasibility study: web-based, consensus taxonomy for two model groups (1 plant, 1 animal) Build sites and initial content for each taxon Build software framework for on-going revision by the community Build human-institutional framework for sustaining consensual, rolling revision AIMS

Providing contributors with career credit of sufficient value Building an environment in which taxonomists feel secure in contributing their data – IPR issues satisfactorily resolved Making the case for web publication being as important as paper publication Ensuring high quality of output Challenges

Taxonomy in public domain: published work: revisions, monographs, new species papers, flora treatments Evaluate, filter, augment with images, edit critically Upload onto Internet Edited version of current taxonomy (not a new revision!) Make the current taxonomy available on the Web Araceae Content Team Set up mechanism for regular/continuous update Involve taxonomic community: build an “institution” collectively Aggregate the taxonomic specialists Outputs on the Web Starting Point Content Team transforms into Editorial Team Build software Build software Transfer software management to Kew by project end Project software hosted at Imperial Coll. and NESC Ben Clark Updated “Consensus” taxonomy Rolling Revision
