Introduction - Name Properties and Concepts - Nomenclatural Concepts

NameBank maps scientific names, and lexical groups of scientific names, into larger groups based on an objectively-defined relationship (homotypy). These names occur when, for example, a species name is moved from one genus to another.

string term concept name string
1 1 1 Gasterosteus saltatrix Linnaeus 1768
2 2 1 Temnodon saltator (Linnaeus)
3 4 1 Pomatomus saltatrix (L. 1768)
4 4 1 Pomatomus saltator (Linné 1768)
5 4 1 Pomatomus sallatrix (Linn. 1768)

The relationship between these strings as nomenclatural entities are synonymous. They all refer to various representations to the same type specimen.

Replacement names also fall into this category.
