Löschantrag bei identischen BildernEdit

Hallo Winterkind, bei identischen Bildern kannst Du den Löschantrag nicht für beide Bilder stellen. Eines muß ja erhalten bleiben. Für welches Du Dich dabei entscheidest, mußt Du selbst wissen. Vielleicht die ältere Version, der bessere Name oder ähnliches. Vorher mußt Du noch abchecken, ob eines oder beide Bilder in irgendeiner Wikipedia eingestellt sind (am oberen Rand auf "Nutzung" klicken). Wenn das zu löschende Bild irgendwo benutzt wird, mußt Du es dort durch das zu behaltende ersetzten. Schöne Grüße --Botaurus stellaris 20:14, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

taxonavigation authorityEdit

Hello, my friend,
Just a small mail about this modification.
When the author is in parenthesis like (Scopoli, 1786), it means something and the parenthesis should not be suppressed.
The parenthesis means that the author has created this species with another name. But later, another biologist has renamed a part of the name (the genus most often). In thoses very common cases, the parenthesis are kept and sometimes the new biologist name is added (Like in Mogador (Linnaeus), 1798). Cheers Liné1 12:26, 28 January 2008 (UTC)


Hello my friend,
this modification is not a good idea. As Animalia in the category Eukaryota, Eukaryota should also be {{Taxonavigation}}.
The idea is that a child taxon (like Category:Acinonyx_jubatus) should contain exactly its parent {{Taxonavigation}} (like Category:Acinonyx)+ itself (like Species|Acinonyx jubatus|).

category:Female Panthera leo and category:Male Panthera leoEdit

Hello. Just wondering why you renamed these, and I also wanted to point out that there is the same naming for Category:Passer domesticus, so you might want to change that too. I used the binomial name, although some pages use the English common names like Category:Roosters or Category:Lions in art. I'm not sure which is best or what the logic is with that; maybe people feel it's best not to mix English and binomial names? Richard001 (talk) 03:48, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Well, I originally stumbled onto the category "Cubs", which was full of lions. I therefore created a new more-specifically-named category for them and moved the images. I named it "Category:Panthera leo (juvenile)" for several reasons. One was to use the binomial name. Secondly that name was to come first, as it was the most important defining characteristic, with "juvenile" being additional information/further sub-definition. Also because the images in there were apparently no longer supposed to be in the parent category "Panthera leo": therefore images would still be tagged with the binomial name, just with an addition. The addition in parentheses set it apart from the binomial name and marked it as a further description. I chose the English word(s), because straight Latin would probably be less likely to be commonly known. Also the words in question are Latin-derived or similar to other European languages, so there is probably a higher chance of somebody understanding it, as many people known at least bits of some European language.
While doing that I came upon the Male/Female categories. Applying the reasoning above, I decided to rename those categories. As said before, the scheme "Female Panthera leo", has several (to me) negative traits. It mixes up Latin and English in a way which makes Panthera look like a subgenus, and doesn't set the "female" apart as further description. And because it is seemingly supposed to be used instead of the top category, placing binomial name first makes it apparent what it is about, with further definition added in parentheses.
Summary: in the fight "Category:further-sub-division important info" vs. "Category:important info (further-sub-division)", the latter seemed more reasonable, practical and elegant to me. My apologies if I offended you.
I hope this was not too much tl;dr, and not as convoluted as I think it might be. ~ Winterkind (talk) 23:59, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation. Richard001 (talk) 03:19, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Category:White TigersEdit

Bei den weißen Tigern MUSS es sich um eine Art de:Albinismus handeln, denn es ist nur das Phäomelanin zwischen den schwarzen Streifen aufgehellt. Das kann man durch eine Melaninbildungsstörung - also Albinismus - erklären - da gibt es einige Beispiele, bei anderen Tierarten, wo durch Albinismus nur das Eumelanin oder nur das Phäomelanin beeinflußt werden, da die jeweilige Mutation erst nach der Auftrennung der Synthesewege von Eumelanin und Phäomelanin auftritt.

Es kann sich bei den weißen Tigern unter keinen Umständen um Leuzismus handeln, da bei Leuzismus niemals ein ungestörtes schwarzes Streifenmuster möglich wäre. Bei Leuzismus fehlen an den weißen Stellen die Melanozyten, die BEIDE Farbstoffe bilden und das Muster kann nicht mit dem Streifenmuster des Tigers übereinstimmen, da dieses durch den Tabby-Locus festgelegt wird.

Falls Du irgendeine Quelle hast, die besagt, daß es sich um noch etwas drittes handelt, dann nenne mir diese Quelle. Und zwar eine, die belegt, daß der "Melanin-Inhibitor" oder das Chinchilla-Gen kein Ausfall eines Enzyms der Melaninsynthese ist, sondern etwas anderes.

Mit "True albino" ist vollständiger Albinismus gemeint, bei dem keinerlei Farbstoffe im Körper vorhanden bleiben. Ein Tier mit unvollständigen Albinismus hat aber durchaus auch Albinismus. Als Albino-Locus oder Albino-Serie werden das Thyrosinasegen bzw. seine Mutationen bezeichnet, zu denen das Gen, das beim tiger mutiert ist nicht zählen kann, da Thyrosinase zus Herstelluzng aller Melanine nötig ist. Es gibt aber noch diverse Formen von Albinismus die auf andere Gene zurückgehen.

Ich habe mich damals bei der Kategorie nach den Artikeln der gerichtet. Wenn's so nicht passed ist kannst Du es ja einfach wieder ändern. ~ Winterkind (talk) 23:12, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Anas platyrhynchos subcategoriesEdit

Good idea! Much needed. Maybe also Cat:Anas platyrhynchos (pairs) and Cat:Anas platyrhynchos (flocks)? - MPF (talk) 22:55, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Schwimmende SchwäneEdit

Die Kategorien mir den schwimmenden Schwänen habe ich angelegt und es ist mir letztlich egal ob sie so oder so heißen - sofern alle Kategorien die sich mit schwimmenden Vögeln beschäftigen analog umbenannt werden. --Kersti (talk) 21:07, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
