Commons:Category scheme flora

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

This is the proposed category scheme for media (files) related to flora. If you add a new category to the hierarchy please add it to the following structure too.

We use Jamaica as an example.

The scheme builds on work by User:CarolSpears and uses subcategories discussed in w:en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flora and other pages to which that article links.

General guidelines[edit]

  • Every plant image should be geocoded to permit future auto-generating of, for example, distribution maps of taxa at the species, genus or family levels.

Category:Plants[edit]

Is outside the scope of this proposal. It is included because it is one apex (is that the correct term?) of the Flora category tree:

Category:Flora by country[edit]

  1. Category:Flora of Jamaica. This category should be used for all plants of Jamaica, both native (whether photographed in Jamaica or elsewhere) and introduced. If you know which subcategory/ies your plant belongs in then please place it there. If not, use this category.
    1. Category:Flora of Jamaica (native). The native and indigenous plants of Jamaica.
      1. One subcategory per species e.g. Category:Ageratina riparia (is this correct?).
    2. Category:Flora of Jamaica (cultivated). The agricultural and garden plants that are deliberately grown by humans in Jamaica.
      1. One subcategory per species.
    3. Category:Flora of Jamaica (introduced). Plants that are not indigenous to Jamaica but instead have been accidentally or deliberately introduced by human activity or by natural means.
      1. One subcategory per species

Category:Ecozones[edit]

Is outside the scope of this proposal. It is included for information. For background see w:Ecozone.

Category:Neotropic[edit]

Is outside the scope of this proposal. It is included because it is the other apex (is that the correct term?) of the Flora category tree:

  1. Category:Flora of Jamaica. This category should be used for all plants of Jamaica, both native (whether photographed in Jamaica or elsewhere) and introduced. If you know which subcategory/ies your plant belongs in then please place it there. If not, use this category.
    1. Category:Flora of Jamaica (native). The native and indigenous plants of Jamaica.
