Hi Franck

Thanks for updating us on this. Great to see the updated live deployments to the latest draft version of the profiles.

I’ve updated the live deployment list for the website and it will go live when the PR is approved.

Note that there seems to be an error being raised about the JSON-LD on line 199 of the below link. I can’t see what is causing it, but it is different from the tool just complaining about the Bioschemas types not being included in Schema.org yet.

Best regards

Dear all,

We have updated the markup of species webpages of the National Museum of Natural History of Paris. The 180.000+ webpages are now annotated with types Taxon<https://bioschemas.org/types/Taxon/0.4-DRAFT/> v0.4-DRAFT<https://bioschemas.org/types/TaxonName/0.1-DRAFT/> AND TaxonName v0.1-DRAFT<https://bioschemas.org/types/TaxonName/0.1-DRAFT/>.

Main changes:
- the taxon names (either reference name of synonyms) are now given with the 2 available options: directly with name and alternateName, and as TaxonName instances with scientificName and alternateScientificName.
- identifiers of 3rd-party data sources are given with PropertyValue instances where the value is the identifier itself and the propertyID is the Wikidata property such as http://www.wikidata.org/prop/direct/P846 for "GBIF id".

You may check this example: https://inpn.mnhn.fr/espece/cd_nom/60878/?lg=en   - In the source, look for: "@type": "Taxon"

Dear Bioschemas.org community,

Good news: the National Museum of Natural History of Paris has annotated 180.000+ species webpages with the Taxon 0.3-RC<https://bioschemas.org/types/Taxon/> type that we are pushing for publication in schema.org. You may check an example here: https://inpn.mnhn.fr/espece/cd_nom/60878/ (look for the string: "@type": "Taxon").

The annotations follow the Taxon profile 0.4-DRAFT<https://bioschemas.org/specifications/drafts/Taxon/> that should eventually become the current profile as this is THE one that is in line with Taxon type 0.3-RC (the current profile 0.3 is NOT in line with the type 0.3-RC. Yes.... kind of confusing). @Alasdair: any news on changing the version of the current profile?

Note that this is only a first step. In a second round, we wish to push for a TaxonName<https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1cQPR7KGU0fOHXiRoaJpahEgrX9i6SIc36X8cupfg6_4/edit?usp=drive_web&ouid=114871180013004076623> type that will allow for more flexible annotation while making it possible for name-centric portals to annotate their pages without mixing taxa and names.
