Taxaonomic database structure

A relational database manager requires a single field to related two
files. The complete latin name works well this way. Some people like to
type the specific epithet in separately. This requires generating a key
field from two fields through programming, another level of complexity.
Fancy database managers written for biological uses do this, but you
should type in the whole name for the key field if you are a
non-programmer working with a business data manager.
