Abstract:Biological taxonomy is established on organism relationships with scientific names as the primary identifiers; however, resolving various taxonomic names remains one of the greatest challenges in taxonomy and systematic biology overall. We proposed an evidence-based approach that extracts trait (character) evidence from published literature to facilitate the comparison of taxonomic concepts. In this poster, we report an initial set of results from our first case study using the plant genus Rubus. The case study tested the entire pipeline of the Explorer of Taxon Concepts toolkit we have developed and revealed challenging phenomena to be solved in the near future.
