Maintaining databases for Names, Nomenclature and Taxonomy

Summary: Names and taxonomy form the backbone of biodiversity data. Anne will explain how we keep track of this information, including where it is maintained and plans for how it will be used into the future.

After her presentation, Anne will co-host a Q&A session with Anna Monro. Both Anne and Anna are involved with the documentation and standardisation of plant nomenclature in Australia.
