Today I'm in the taxonomy :-)  Very incompetent :-(

So I ask for advice...

1.	How to name the relationship between the taxonomic ranks ?

<class> <has_superior_rank>  <phylum>  ?

or <has_upper_rank> or <has_immediately_upper_rank> or something without "rank" ?

2.	How to name the relationship between particular taxons ?

The definition of "phylum" in Wordnet uses the word "contains". http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=phylum

"S: (n) phylum ((biology) the major taxonomic group of animals and plants; contains classes)"


<Mammalia> <is_contained_in> <Chordata>

is acceptable ? There is a practice already ?

Or should I be bold and use crm:P150_defines_typical_parts_of ?
