Abstract: This webinar will provide an overview of how the Arctos data model understands taxonomic classification, as well as how users manage shared taxonomy-related tables. Arctos taxonomy aims to control hierarchical species classification using both local and external sources. The model also maintains species’ common names and relationships between taxa. To illustrate how this resource is used by collections, we demonstrate how to search for taxa and how taxonomy relates to specimen identifications. We also show how to create and edit taxa and classifications. Finally, we troubleshoot common issues users encounter when handling Arctos taxonomy.
