Add a Term

Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination

To add a term:

  1. Click on the 'new' link to add a term.
  2. Keystroke the word(s). For display purposes we recommend all lowercase unless a capital is warranted, e.g., for proper names like Waterston's organ.
  3. Add a definition. For display purposes we recommend that it starts with a capital letter and ends with a period.
  4. Tie the term to the reference from which the definition was copied verbatim using the "written by" field. Curators can add themselves as a reference if the definition does not come from a reference.
  5. If known, tie it to the highest taxon for which this term applies.
  6. Choose the language if not English.
