BSBI Distribution Database > Taxon name parser

Taxon name parser

Upload a taxon name list (or other tab-delimited file containing a column of taxon names) to match against names in the DDb. Output consists of the uploaded file with additional columns matching against the DDb names and with some types of problem highlighted.

If you are using this tool to prepare data for import into the DDb then please use the default settings for output and retain all the output columns in the file that is sent for DDb upload. 'DDb internal id' rather than taxon name is used for importing records.

The name parser will treat the first row of the file as column headings, so if the source file is missing headings then please add these before upload.
