Hi Andy,

Thanks for the info. It’s nice to see the links to Wikidata, and the author identifiers (VIAF, ORCID, ISNI, etc.).

One thing about Wikispecies which drives me a little nuts is the lack of standardised way to write references (compared, say, too the templates used in Wikipedia). Given all the interest in extracting citations from Wikipedia, is Wikispecies lily to adopt a similar template for citations, or is that wishful thinking?

If you have named a taxon, then it is likely that there is (or will
be) a Wikispecies page about you, and other pages about your published

Wikispecies now has a page for people to whom this applies:


Please feel free to forward this email to colleagues, or to mention
the page in your journals, other forums, etc.
