I'd be interested to know your requirements a little better. Why do  
you want to track the taxonomies? Are you creating a monograph or  
flora/fauna or do you need it to accurately integrate ecological or  
other studies?

The chances are you don't just want Taxon Concept software but want  
software to do something "useful" that just happens to handle Taxon  
Concepts data correctly.
