TOP-Thesaurus

"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.

Open Science Taxonomy

"The FOSTER portal is an e-learning platform that brings together the best training resources for those who need to know more about Open Science, or who need to develop strategies and skills for implementing Open Science practices in their daily workflows. Here you will find a growing collection of training materials to meet the needs of many different users, from early-career researchers, to data managers, librarians, funders, and graduate schools."

Nomenclature 3.0 for Museum Cataloging

"Nomenclature 3.0 is a much-expanded edition of Robert G. Chenhall’s system for classifying man-made objects, originally published in 1978. The Chenhall system is the standard cataloging tool for thousands of museums and historical organizations across the United States and Canada. In this third edition, three new hierarchical levels of terms allow for more precise definitions of objects and their functions. Every classification and object term has been reviewed and revised as needed by a professional task force appointed by the American Association for State and Local History."

Taxonomy of Exemplary Secondary School Programs in the State of California

"A research project undertook to develop a system whereby information could be exchanged about exemplary secondary school programs within California. A survey was sent to 375 randomly selected districts throughout the State requesting information about model programs dealing with any of the following: curriculum, staffing patterns, office organization, gifted programs, slow learner programs, programs for the emotionally disturbed, individualized learning, advisory committees, career and vocational education, the use of department chairmen, or other innovative programs.

A Proposed Taxonomy of Postsecondary Education Subject Matter Areas

"The development of the NCHEM taxonomy came about because of a need for standardized and comprehensive structures for cataloging and organizing information on the multitude of instructional programs and activities presently functioning in the various levels and sectors of education. Although considerable effort has gone into the development of the NCHEMS postsecondary education

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.

AlgaeBase Taxonomy

"You can browse though the hierarchy by clicking on the names below and drilling down. At each level the numbers of current species are given for each taxon. Only currently accepted names are currently included. Should you find any errors, please click on the little envelope icon, and you can send me an e-mail via the site. In order to make calculations of the numbers of species of living algae, note that 68 or so species of flowering plants (seagrasses) are included for the present (under the Phylum Magnoliophyta), and about 2000 fossil algae, mainly calcium- and silica- secreting forms.

Indiana Philosophy Ontology

"The InPhO analyzes over 37 million words of philosophical content from: Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy; Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy; PhilPapers; HathiTrust/Google Books Collection. The InPhO is constructed by a novel 3-step semi-automated process, called dynamic ontology: 1. Data Mining — Natural language processing (NLP) techniques generate statistical hypothesis about the relationships among philosophically-salient topics. 2. Expert Feedback — These hypotheses are evaluated by domain experts through online interfaces. 3.

World Register of Marine Species

"The aim of a World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) is to provide an authoritative and comprehensive list of names of marine organisms, including information on synonymy. While highest priority goes to valid names, other names in use are included so that this register can serve as a guide to interpret taxonomic literature. The content of WoRMS is controlled by taxonomic experts, not by database managers.

Taxonomy of Digital Research Activities in the Humanities

"This taxonomy of digital research activities in the humanities has been developed for use by community-driven sites and projects that aim to structure information relevant to digital humanities and make it more easily discoverable. The taxonomy is expected to be particularly useful to endeavors aiming to collect information on digital humanities tools, methods, projects, or readings."
