seeAlso the following:

1. 
http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/ode/?uri=http%3A%2F%2Flod.taxonconcept.org%2Fontology%2Fdwc_area.owl  
-- ODE view of the Ontology
2. 
http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/describe/?url=http://lod.taxonconcept.org/ontology/dwc_area.owl%23Area 
-- Alternative Descriptor Page


Peter: adding isDefinedBy relations across: Ontology, Classes, and 
Properties, will make the ontology more navigable via #2 above. It will 
also make the ontology URI a pivot point from the Classes and Properties 
descriptor pages :-)
