Template:Taxa/doc

From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository
Jump to: navigation, search

Creates formatted lists of links to taxon of rank strictly higher than genus (like order, family or tribe).

Currently takes up to 200 names.

Please use the Latin plural form of the taxon as the first parameter.

Note: if you want to edit this template, first try your modifications on {{Taxa/sandbox}}.You can then test your edits in {{Taxa/testcases}}.
When the new version is ready, you can move it to the main template.

Example[edit]

{{Taxa|subfamiliae|Lycaeninae|Miletinae|Polyommatinae|†Theclinae|source=MSW|accessdate=2012-03-29}}
displays:

Included subfamilies (for Mammal Species of the World):
Lycaeninae, Miletinae, Polyommatinae, †Theclinae


{{Taxa|familiae|Amphizoidae|Aspidytidae (family)|Dytiscidae|Hygrobiidae|Meruidae (insects)|Noteridae|†Coptoclavidae|accessdate=2012-03-29}}
displays:

Included families (Retrieved on ):
Amphizoidae, Aspidytidae (family), Dytiscidae, Hygrobiidae, Meruidae (insects), Noteridae, †Coptoclavidae


Note: prefixing a name with "†" will add the symbol before it to designate it as extinct.
Note: in case of disambiguated category (like Aspidytidae (family)) provide the name with parentheses

Syntax[edit]

{{Taxa|rank|taxon1|taxon2|taxon3|taxon4|...}}

Parameters[edit]

  • First parameter is the taxa rank. This rank should be written in Latin and plural should be used if there are multiple taxa. Here is a small reminder of all the rank possibilities:
Singular Plural Comment
Cladus Cladi
Regnum Regna
Phylum Phyla
Divisio Divisiones
Classis Classes
Cohors Cohortes
Ordo Ordines
Familia Familiae
Tribus Tribus
Sectio Sectiones
Forma Formae Is it a good idea to provide form list in commons ?
For genera use {{genera}} or {{genera2}}
For subgenera use {{genera|rank=subgenus}} or {{genera2|rank=subgenus}}
For species use {{species}} or {{species2}}
For nothospecies use {{species|rank=nothospecies}} or {{species2|rank=nothospecies}}
For subspecies use {{subspecies}}
For varieties use {{subspecies|rank=varietas}}
Note: If you provide an invalid rank, Category:Pages with incorrect biology template usage will be added

Optional parameters[edit]

  • Use |source=<WebSiteShortName> to display the source of this genus list. See Taxasource/doc for the complete list of managed WebSiteShortName
    • Use |name=<TaxonName> with |source= to specify the taxon name if the current category/gallery name is not exactly the taxon name (In article "Vanda (Orchidaceae)" use name=Vanda)
    • Use |source2=<WebSiteShortName> to provide additional sources
    • Use |ref=<reference> if your source is not managed by {{Taxasource}}
  • Use |accessdate=<yyyy-mm-dd> to provide the date of the retrieval of the data
  • Use |extant=yes to specify that none of the listed taxa are extinct
  • Use |<taxonName> to display that <taxonName> is extinct (|<taxonName>|<taxonName>=† is Deprecated)
  • Use |inline=y to make it all one line (and it should wrap correctly if it takes up more than one line in the browser)
  • Use |note=<note> to add a note at the bottom of the list (such as "This list may be incomplete" or further clarification on the sources used to create the list).
  • Use |title=<title> to replace the auto-generated (and auto-translated) "Included <rank>:" part with custom text.
