Working with a range of web services, I have found myself making extensive
use of the LSIDs that are specific to each data source. For example, for
ITIS, I use the Ecsenius bicolor LSID: *urn:lsid:itis.gov:itis_tsn:636326*
For WoRMS, the LSID for Ecsenius bicolor is:
For Atlas of living Australia the LSID for Ecsenius bicolor is:
Is there a GBIF LSID that can similarly be used as a unique identifier for
a taxon? I have come across the various GBIF unique keys but these are not
unique outside of the GBIF environment and within the Gaia Guide systems I
am deciding how best to work with these, ensuring their uniqueness,
alongside identifiers from other data sources.
Thanks again for your assistance.
