I would appreciate any information you could provide regarding the
species indexes, say for the FAO. I saw you message on the
My interest is that I have produced a lexicon of animal names in
various dialects of Chuukic, in the Eastern Caroline Islands,
Micronesia. I have developed a species index, but mainly for purposes
of sorting into an order that is convenient for me (modified
phylogenetic). A more standard way would be better.
But for one thing, the names I am getting are not usually assignable
to a specific species. A name might refer to several species, or to
an undetermined species.
