Data Entry: Identification

[ moved to https://arctosdb.wordpress.com/documentation/create/bulkloader/#taxa ]


Data entry (including the Arctos screen and specimen bulkloaders) try to seamlessly construct identifications linked to taxonomy by way of taxa formulae based on user input. However, for taxa formula A {string}, more explicit input is required.

The input string must contain a valid taxonomy.scientific_name, followed by a space, followed by an opening curly bracket, followed by the verbatim identification, followed by a closing curly bracket.


Input Identification Taxonomy Problem
unidentifiable {granite} unidentifiable granite none
granite

All identifications must be linked to taxonomy
unidentifiable{granite}

Incorrect format; missing space.
