The SCAMIT Taxonomic Database Tool is a draft general-purpose
tool based on the SCAMIT Edition 7 taxon list, designed to make information readily available
for taxonomists and ecologists:

Tool development and status
SCAMIT Provisional Species voucher sheets have a long history
going back to the early years of SCAMIT. SCAMIT begin publishing a
Species List of member reported SCB described and provisional
species in 1994 and since 2011 publishes annual updates. The
requirements for acceptance of provisional species voucher sheets
for inclusion on the Species List over the years have varied. The
Species List Review Committee meeting in June 2015 decided to adopt
the following guidelines for the creation, vetting, and acceptance
on the Species List:
SCAMIT Provisional Voucher Sheet Guidelines [Posted 6 Nov 2015]
The taxon trees conform to Edition 7 (to match the current Taxonomic Database Tool).
In the second half of 2012, a series of “new” Toolbox files were added from agency and individual collections. These files are temporarily renamed with a leading asterisk and are shown in green (e.g. *Aberranta sp SD2.pdf). Once there has been a chance for expert review, the asterisk/green will be removed.
Please send comments and observations about these files to Larry Lovell (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks!
This list is in the “old” toolbox hierarchy (not reflecting any specific SCAMIT Edition X hierarchy). It contains about 100 files that need expert advice to determine where to place them in the standard Toolbox hierarchy (or whether to keep them at all).
