[tdwg-content] Another example of non-overlapping concepts

I thought that I would also mention that in addition to The Plants List, the
eBird project also uses on overlapping concepts in its bird list (it does
have concepts for common hybrids)

What is clear to me is that you cannot create graphs like these if every
observation can have X number of species (especially those that overlapping
) without any indication which is is the most appropriate one.

eBird Occurrence Maps Northern Cardinal

NCBI is also similar.

Perhaps a member of the consensus committee can comment?
