Description[uredi kodo]

This metadata template links Wikipedia articles to various biological and taxonomic databases. Taxonbar displays these links as short strings, indicating the unique identifier each database has assigned the taxon for catalogue purposes.

Taxonomic identifiers of each taxon are stored and retrieved from each taxon's corresponding Wikidata entry, but can be overridden in individual articles with locally entered data. Adding the data to Wikidata is preferable.

This project is based on the work of {{Normativna kontrola}} and Wikidata:WikiProject Taxonomy. If you are a template editor or Wikipedia administrator, you may contribute at Modul:Taxonbar. Please discuss ideas/thoughts for improvement or use on Pogovor o predlogi:Taxonbar.

Taxonbar is placed below all navigation templates, except Authority control (not shown here).

Usage[uredi kodo]

Add Taxonbar to an article:

  1. In Source editing mode, insert {{Taxonbar}} below all other navigation templates except Authority control.
  2. Click "Show preview" to check placement and to see which Taxon identifiers are automatically pulled from Wikidata.
  3. If you have more identifiers to add, consider adding them to the article's Wikidata item (so that all versions of Wikipedia will automatically benefit). Be careful not to edit the structure or names of Wikidata taxon until you have become familiar with Wikidata:WikiProject Taxonomy and Wikidata:WikiProject Taxonomy/Tutorial.

Hide specific identifier (optional)[uredi kodo]

Individual identifiers listed in the table above can be removed(hidden) from the bar by setting the corresponding parameter to no. This is useful when trying to reduce the number of links within Taxonbar. Spaces are optional. There is no sense in removing too many identifiers, for example: removing plant or fungi identifiers from an animal taxon would have no effect as these parameters will not show up on an animal taxon in the first place. It is best to preview {{Taxonbar}} on the page and decide what entries provide little relevant data. Plant species will have the most entries and are most likely in need of hiding some entries if the goal is to keep the bar on one line.

Example: To remove FOC, IPNI, and AFPD, the code would look like:

{{Taxonbar | foc = no | ipni = no| apdb = no }}

On Coffea arabica, the result is:

Additional parameters[uredi kodo]

Some taxon identifiers not currently in Wikidata can be added via additional parameters, however, adding the data to Wikidata is preferable.


{{Taxonbar | emonocot = 280381 | Wikispecies = Lilium }}

On Lilium, the result is:

where the taxon identifier in the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families has been added to those picked up from Wikidata.

Multiple Wikidata entries[uredi kodo]

Some taxa will exist under multiple names (synonyms) on Wikidata. To add these synonyms, you can use the |from2=, |from3=, etc. parameters to specify their Wikidata IDs. The parameter |from= / |from1= will be automatically determined by the associated Wikidata entry. While not required, it is preferable, from a maintenance perspective, to specify the Wikidata entry via the |from= / |from1= parameter. Parameters |from2=, etc., can be specified manually; this can be useful if the associated Wikidata entry differs from the taxon name of the en:Wikipedia article.

If there is more than one row, the taxon name from Wikidata will be shown in the leftmost column — to overwrite this, use the |title= / |title1=, |title2=, |title3=, etc. parameters. You can add taxon identifiers not present in Wikidata by appending the appropriate number to the end of the parameter name — for example, to add emonocot to the second row, use |emonocot2=.

For example, {{Taxonbar|from=Q26972265|from2=Q20717272}}, when placed on the page Dog produces:

The same approach can be used when monotypic taxa have a single article, but there are multiple entries in Wikidata. For example, at Haptanthus, which covers the genus and its sole species, {{Taxonbar|from1=Q15715555|from2=Q133951}} produces:

Basionyms[uredi kodo]

Basionyms available on Wikidata (via bazionim (P566)) are automatically appended. You may also manually specify the basionym via |from#= to customize its location.

For example, both

{{Taxonbar|from1=Q43372357|from2=Q164254}} and

would produce identical taxonbars for Ponerorchis cucullata:

or {{Taxonbar|from1=Q43372357|from2=Q21977691|from3=Q164254}} for a customized location:
