"The Population and Community Ontology (PCO) describes material entities, qualities, and processes related to collections of interacting organisms such as populations and communities. It is taxon neutral, and can be used for any species, including humans. The classes in the PCO are useful for describing evolutionary processes, organismal interactions, and ecological experiments. Practical applications of the PCO include community health care, plant pathology, behavioral studies, sociology, and ecology.
"Beta Cell Genomics Ontology (BCGO) is an application ontology built for the Beta Cell Genomics database (http://genomics.betacell.org/gbco/) aiming to support database annotation, complicated semantic queries, and automated cell type classification. The ontology is developed using Basic Formal Ontology (BFO) as upper ontology, Ontology for Biomedical Investigations (OBI) as ontology framework and integrated subsets of multiple OBO Foundry (candidate) ontologies.
"The BioAssay Ontology (BAO) describes biological screening assays and their results including high-throughput screening (HTS) data for the purpose of categorizing assays and data analysis. BAO is an extensible, knowledge-based, highly expressive (currently SHOIQ(D)) description of biological assays making use of descriptive logic based features of the Web Ontology Language (OWL). BAO currently has over 700 classes and also makes use of several other ontologies.
"Le plan de classement de la BSI est spécifique. Dès l’origine, il a été choisi de ne pas utiliser les classifications préexistantes, telles que la CDU ou la Dewey. La BSI a donc élaboré son propre outil.
"The Biomimicry Taxonomy is a classification system developed by the Biomimicry Institute to organize biological content on the website AskNature. The taxonomy categorizes the different ways that organisms and natural systems meet functional challenges into groups of related functions.
Use the taxonomy to help you navigate AskNature or, when beginning a design challenge, as a tool to help you 'think functionally' and identify questions you can 'ask' nature."
"It is a uniform classification scheme of buildings across the globe. It will be used as a basis for assessing the risk from earthquakes within the scope of GEM. It also facilitates global collaboration and growing of our joint knowledge on the diversity and seismic vulnerability of all the buildings that exist around the globe."
"It is difficult to provide a taxonomy of optimization because many of the subfields have multiple links. Shown here is one perspective, focused mainly on the subfields of deterministic optimization with a single objective function."
"The Climate Bonds Taxonomy provides broad guidance for prospective green bond and climate bond issuers and investors. Guided by the Climate Science Advisory Panel, the aim of the Taxonomy is to encourage common definitions across global markets, in a way that supports the growth of a cohesive thematic bond market.

"Welcome to Online Taxonomic Keys, a joint project of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Royal BC Museum. This project seeks to facilitate the development of, and make readily available, a variety of regional and global identification keys in a format that is concise and easy to use. The information presented is compiled from published and unpublished works from taxonomic specialists worldwide.
