Thesaurus Onroerend Erfgoed Soorten

"Een thesaurus is een, meestal hiërarchische, woordenlijst die wordt gebruikt om terminologie te standaardiseren. Onze thesauri worden gebruikt om informatie te helpen indexeren en terugvinden in onze databanken. (...) We stellen onze thesauri samen met een bijzondere aandacht voor onze lokale Vlaamse situatie, zonder internationale thesauri zoals de Art & Architecture Thesaurus en de thesauri van Historic England uit het oog te verliezen."

"A thesaurus is a mostly hierarchical list of words used to standardize terminology. Our thesauri are used to index and find information in our databases. (...) We construct our thesauri with special attention to our local Flemish situation, but without losing sight of international thesauri such as the Art & Architecture Thesaurus and the thesauri of Historic England."

Catalogue of Life

"The Catalogue of Life (CoL) is the nearest thing to a comprehensive catalogue of all known species of organisms on Earth. Continuous progress is made towards completion, and this edition contains 1,639,016 living and 5,763 extinct species. Please note that this is probably just over three quarters of the world's known species. This means that for many groups it continues to be deficient, and users will notice that many species are still missing from the Catalogue.


"The TOP-Thesaurus defines standards for a functional approach to plant diversity by stabilizing the terminology for concepts widely used in ecology and evolution. TOP provides names, definitions, formal units and synonyms for more than 700 plant features: plant traits, environmental preferences and spatial distribution. TOP can be searched via: FACETED SEARCH, filtering the available information by grouping terms into facets; HIERARCHY SEARCH, providing a tree that progressively unfolds; INDEX, a complete alphabetical list of all concepts defined in TOP.

Noms de plantes. Corpus de fitonímia catalana

"Aquesta obra, el diccionari en línia Noms de plantes. Corpus de fitonínimia catalana, és un diccionari descriptiu, elaborat en el marc del projecte Noms catalans de plantes per un equip d’especialistes dirigit per Joan Vallès i Xirau i format per Joan Veny, Josep Vigo, M. Àngels Bonet, M. Antònia Julià i Joan Carles Villalonga, en col·laboració amb el TERMCAT. El desenvolupament d’aquest projecte i la publicació dels seus resultats ha pogut fer-se realitat gràcies al suport de moltes persones i institucions, que hi han cregut i hi han contribuït de diverses maneres (vegeu els crèdits).

Plant Ontology

"Plant Ontology project is a major international bioinformatics effort on standardizing the nomenclature, definitions, synonyms and relations of various terms/keywords/vocabularies that describe anatomical entities as well as the growth and developmental stages of plants. This collaborative project involves team members and projects with expertise on plant functional and comparative genomics, genetics, systematics, anatomy, developmental biology, computational biology, ontology development, etc.

GRIN Taxonomy for Plants

"The National Plant Germplasm System of the Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture maintains a computer database, the Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN), for the management of and as a source of information on its 568,489 germplasm accessions. The taxonomic portion of GRIN provides the classification and nomenclature for these genetic resources and many other economic plants on a worldwide basis.

New Zealand Threat Classification System

"The New Zealand Threat Classification System's long-term goal is to list all extant species that exist here according to their threat of extinction. The system is made up of manuals and corresponding taxa status lists. The status of each species group (birds, plants, reptiles, etc.) is assessed over a 3-year cycle."
