The Aldabra checklist is an appropriate subset of the Seychelles checklist, which in turn is a subset of the full African Bird Club list, based on the ABC country checklists.
Either select the species to add by first selecting the authority to copy it from, then the particular species, or enter a new species directly below.
NB: Likely authorities hard-coded for now, but dropdown should ideally be restricted to parents of current authority only.
If selecting from another authority, you can still update the information below before adding the species.
NB: Species name is defaulted from the previous species row and should of course be overwritten!.
NB: Genus is defaulted from the previous species row but may need overwriting; specific needs to be entered in either case.
NB: Species id will be taken from the corresponding species on the authority being copied from, otherwise enter 0 for a totally new species.
NB: Need a way to enter a new family if required.
NB: Notes only allow up to 255 characters, but there is no enforcement of this. Anything longer will be truncated without warning.
NB: Species name for the old taxon should be updated to differentiate it from the split taxa using a '/' or '[group]', e.g. Species A/Species B or Species A [group].
NB: Scientific should also be updated similarly, e.g. Genus specific A/specific B or Genus specific A [group].
NB: Split species must previously have been added through Add Species. Currently allow for split into 5 species.
NB: Ideally this should be done through a species lookup rather than direct entry of id.
NB: Species name for the old taxon should be updated to differentiate it from the split taxa using '[lumped]', e.g. Species A [lumped].
NB: Scientific should also be updated, using '[lumped]' or brackets for the old specific name, e.g. Genus specific [lumped] or Genus [specific] subspecific.
NB: Lumped species must already exist.
This will update all user lists according to the edited taxonomy and should only be done when all edits are complete.
