EU BON Taxonomic backbone (v1.2)

The Unified Taxonomic Information Service (UTIS) provides the taxonomic backbone for EU BON. UTIS allows to run federated searches across multiple European checklists and returns harmonised response documents. The current implementation of the UTIS connects web services of the Pan-European Species directories Infrastructure, PESI and EUNIS which fully covers Natura 2000. Therefore UTIS can be used in full compliance to Appendix 3 of the the INSPIRE directive.

Furthermore it connects to the Catalogue of Life (CoL), and the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS).

Currently it is possible to search for taxa and synonyms by scientific name or vernacular name strings. In case the search string is matching a synonym the according accepted taxon is resolved. UTIS provides furthermore a special search mode for resolving taxon identifiers. The responses of the search web service can optionally include information on the classification and on related taxa as far as this data is delivered by the connected checklist providers.

The service is being developed by the Biodiversity Informatics Research Group of the Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem.
