Hi,

I see that you have also added EUNIS links for species. I can provide you with a much better quality, and I have forked the repo. But I am concerned about the use of owl:sameAs as the predicate. The community doesn't have consensus on the species names and we can't even agree on many species - e.g. is the goat in the Pyrenees the same species as the one in southern Spain or a subspecies? I don't want some OWL-aware query tool to be utterly confused.

What I'm asking is: Can I use skos:exactMatch and skos:closeMatch instead of owl:sameAs?

|| 
|| Nice, we received links to 2 data sets yesterday, already, thanks to
|| Sarven: http://270a.info
|| It is a good start and we are really hoping for more. Note that most of
|| the links in http://richard.cyganiak.de/2007/10/lod/imagemap.html only
|| point to DBpedia and not outwards.
|| 
|| In case you are not a Git expert, GitHub allows you to upload links with
|| their GUI:
|| 1. create an account
|| 2. fork this repo https://github.com/dbpedia/dbpedia-links
|| 3. click on the "create a file button" and upload your links
|| 4. send a "pull request"
|| 
|| We might simplify the way to contribute later. Right now, Git seems to
|| be the easiest way. Any ideas are welcome.
|| all the best,
|| Sebastian
