Dear Dan,

In the course of the European Project iMarine and the Greek contribution 
"LifeWatch Greece" to
"LifeWatch" (Europe), we have developed together with taxonomy 
specialists a complete CRM-compatible solution for the below, which is 
well received by biologists. Beware: It is actually
an exercise in metaclass modelling. Luckily, it can be implemented in 
RDF. My colleague Chrysoula
can point you to all the publications and material.

Best,

Martin
