For our Botanic garden collection, I’m looking for a way to maintain a single Taxon tree for the two classification approaches - the classic and the Clade-based APG IV.
The solution that I choose has three points:
- Label the taxonomic ranks like this: Kingdom, SubKingdom/Clade, Division/Clade, SubDivision/Clade, SuperClass/Clade, Class/Clade, order, etc.
- When Clade is used, to add “(cl.)” to the name.
- Where the two formats exist, to make the Class and the (lowest-level) clade synonyms.
Does anyone have a better solution?
