Primary biological classification
Your site uses a single primary biological classification. By default this classification is automatically created and added to your vocabularies list, when your site is created.
Taxon names within the primary biological classification can be used to tag other content items (such as images) on your site. You can modify these associations by editing your primary biological classification settings.
Anonymous visitors to your site will be able to browse your primary biological classification. If you have multiple people contributing to your LifeDesk then the primary biological classification will represent your consensus view on how organisms in your area of interest are categorised.
Alternate biological classifications
In addition to the primary classification you can create alternate biological classifications to which you can add names. Alternate classifications will not be visible to anonymous users. Names within alternate classifications can not be used to tag any other content on your site. You can however move names from an alternate classification to your primary biological classification using the biological classification tree editor.
If no alternate biological classification exists, individual names or hierarchical lists of names are automatically added to your primary biological classification on import. If alternate biological classifications exist you will be asked to specify a destination classification for import at which time you can choose either your primary biological classification or an alternate biological classification that you have created.
