Dear all,

I found this message on the CHRONOS news pages:

'Taxonomic Synonymy efforts with GNS New Zealand':
CHRONOS is implementing URNs (Uniform Resource Names) of taxon names
as a means to connect multiple sources of taxonomic data.
Initial tests include Neptune, the Mesozoic Planktonic Foraminifera
Taxonomic Database, and FRED, the paleontological database of the
Geoscience and Nuclear Sciences in New Zealand. Modeled after the
Life Science Identifiers (LSID), taxonURNs are unique IDs.

I cc this message to Cinzia and Doug from CHRONOS.. hey, I hope you
both are OK? It would be great if you could join the TDWG mailinglist
and give us some more details on that effort..

best regards,
