The full scientific name of the kingdom in which the taxon is classified.
- spell out the full scientific name [KCP: should we add "names should be capitalized except for the specific and subspecific names"?]
|speciesAggregate [NOTE KCP: should there be a space between species and aggregate? See next example below]|
Use standardized institution codes such as:
- taxonRank = controlled vocabulary: http://vocabularies.gbif.org/vocabularies/taxon_rank [NOTE KCP: this link does not seem to work?]
NOTE KCP: not sure if we need examples here, since the example would always be "Plantae"? How about "Protista" and "Fungi"? Are they to be included here?
