treatment sec: A section of a taxonomic treatment. For example, diagnosis, materials examined, etymology, etc.

Notes: The treatment sections model the various elements used to describe a taxon, e.g. materials citations, biology, description, diagnosis, keys or etymology. These elements are defined by the sec-type attribute ("type=XXX"). The values ought be general values so that searches to make best use of the semantic nature of the tagging and allowing comparisons and general searches. However the current DTD allows a free choice of the terminology for the attributes. The following values are suggested and are partially also reflected in the SPMInfoItems:

  • biology_ecology: The description of the biology, behavior and ecology of the taxon.
  • description: The formal description of the taxon.
  • diagnosis: The character that differentiate this taxon from another.
  • discussion: A discussion of the value of certain characters and its limitations, the materials included in the publication, future research needed.
  • distribution: A biogeographic synthesis of the observation data underlying this study.
  • etymology: The origin of the name of the taxon.
  • key: Identification tool to identify the children of the pertinent taxon.
  • materials_examined: The listing of the observation data used in the study. It can be very detailed to cursory.
  • multiple: An element allowing mixed content.
  • synopsis: A list of children taxa belonging into the pertinent taxon.

<tp:treatment-sec> can be nested. This allows increasingly specific mark up, eg a description part, and within it the description of female, male, soldier, larva or other casts or life stages.
