Plant, Animal & Anatomical Illustration in Art & Science:

Plant Taxonomic Database Standards
No. 1. The International Transfer Format for Botanic Garden Plant Records
1987. 64 pp.; 10 tables; 8 1/2 x 11". Stiff paper cover. ISBN 0-913196-57-6.

This standard lists the various data items needed in a database on the plants grown in a botanic garden. It explains the meaning of each data item, outlines the rules that pertain to it, and shows how it can be categorized and stored, both in manual systems and in the computer. It then provides a format for exchanging electronic plant records that contain these data items.
No. 2. World Geographic Scheme for Recording Plant Distributions, ed. 1
S. Hollis and R. K. Brummitt. 1992. ix, 104 pp.; 16 maps; 8 1/2 x 11". Stiff paper cover. ISBN 0-913196-56-8. This scheme meets the need for a standard yet adaptable system of geographical units for use in recording plant distributions and arranging specimens. Because a purely political arrangement cannot meet all the needs of botanists, the scheme's arrangement compromises between a politically and a phytogeographically oriented system. It identifies geographic units worldwide in a four-level hierarchy, incorporating continents, regions, provinces and countries. Each geographical unit at each level has its own numeric or alphanumeric code. The scheme is presented in five tables, the recognized geographical units are shown in 17 maps, and a gazetteer relates over 2,100 names to the overall system.
No. 3. Plant Names in Botanical Databases
Frank A. Bisby. 1994. viii, 30 pp.; 8 1/2 x 11"; 6 oz. Stiff paper cover. ISBN 0-913196-62-2.

This standard clarifies how to determine what information is needed in order to specify scientific plant names and how to organize those names for botanical databasing purposes. Because databasing needs vary, this standard is flexible. It is divided into four variants or levels, and so it provides a scale of options for rendering plant names according to the degree of specificity needed. It identifies the elements that need to be considered—taxa, names elements (species, species aggregate, intergeneric hybrids and graft chimaeras, interspecific hybrids and graft chimaeras, intraspecific categories, subspecies, variety, cultivar), author strings, classes of names, and reference citations—and provides recommendations. This standard is useful for taxonomic reference databasing but may also meet the databasing needs of natural-history societies, nature reserves and conservation centers. Includes references and appendices.
