Wasila M Dahdul, Hong Cui, Paula M Mabee, Christopher J Mungall, David Osumi-Sutherland, Ramona L Walls, Melissa A Haendel
2014 Journal of Biomedical Semantics  
We developed the Biological Spatial Ontology (BSPO) to standardize the description of spatial and topological relationships across taxa to enable the discovery of comparable phenotypes.  ...  The BSPO is currently used by projects that require standardized anatomical descriptors for phenotype annotation and ontology integration across a diversity of taxa.  ...  Stevenson and Pankaj Jaiswal for discussions on plant spatial terminology. We thank Anya Broverman-Wray for her expert preparation of the illustrations.  ...

Ecological Kinds and the Units of Conservation [article]

Christopher Lean, University, The Australian National, University, The Australian National
These chapters together provide a framework for conservation science, which can then be applied to novel problems.  ...  I defend the position that biodiversity should represent taxonomy and be quantified in reference to phylogenetic structure.  ...  The rest of the microbe genome is relegated to the descriptor of "accessory genes".  ...
