Hi LOD'ers :-)

I am trying to work out some way to map the various semantic representations
for a species, in conjunction with a friendly three letter organization.

The goal of these documents is in part to improve "findability" of
information about species.

The hope is that they will also help serve as a bridge from the LOD
to species information from the three letter organization and it's partners.

The resources are mapped using skos:closeMatch.

This should allow consumers to choose those attributes of each species
resource that they think are appropriate.

It has been suggested to me that more comprehensive documents describing
species should be in the form of OWL documents, so I have included
nonfunctional links to these hypothetical resources.

I have the following examples, and am looking for comments and suggestions.

RDF Example  http://rdf.taxonconcept.org/ses/v6n7p.rdf

<http://rdf.taxonconcept.org/ses/v6n7p.rdf>Ontology
http://rdf.taxonconcept.org/ont/txn.owl

<http://rdf.taxonconcept.org/ont/txn.owl>Ontology Doc
http://rdf.taxonconcept.org/ont/txn_doc/index.html

VOID              http://rdf.taxonconcept.org/ont/void.rdf

<http://rdf.taxonconcept.org/ont/txn_doc/index.html>I look forward to your
comments and suggestions, :-)
