Properties Values
Label is the preferred name
Description This term is true if the source citing the use of this vernacular name indicates the usage has some preference or specific standing over other possible vernacular names used for the species.
Examples TRUE
Notes Some organisations have attempted to assign specific and unique vernacular names for particular taxon groups in a systematic attempt to bring order and consistency to the use of these names. For example, the American Ornithological Union assigns the name "Pearl Kite" for the taxon, Gampsonyx swainsonii. The value of isPreferredName for this record would be true.
