Scientific names are ambiguous as identifiers for biological taxa: their context and definition are required for accurate data integration

Conference Proceeding
Kennedy, J., Kukla, R., & Paterson, T. (2005)
Scientific names are ambiguous as identifiers for biological taxa: their context and definition are required for accurate data integration. In B. Ludaescher, & L. Raschid (Eds.), Data Integration in the Life Sciences, 80-95. https://doi.org/10.1007/11530084_8
Biologists use scientific names to label the organisms described in their data; however, these names are not unique identifiers for taxonomic entities. Alternative taxonomic c...
