This documentation is transcluded from Template:Taxasource/doc.

This template takes a web site short name as parameter and returns a link to this web site.
This template is called by:
The websites managed by this template should be limited to well known sites for species classification.
The purpose is to centralize those links here, to simplify future maintenance and to limit url duplication.
Each entry of this template should correspond to a template of Category:Biology external link templates
Note: Now this template support all combination of these WebSiteShortName, like "ADW & ITIS & ZorapteraSF"
Note: if you want to edit this template, first try your modifications on {{Taxasource/sandbox}}.You can then test your edits in {{Taxasource/testcases}}.
When the new version is ready, you can move it to the main template.

{{taxasource | WebSiteShortName | name=<TaxonName> }}
  • name=<TaxonName> (optional)
To specify the taxon name if the current category/gallery name is not exactly the taxon name.
It is mostly needed only for subgenus (Where taxonName really contains a (xx) part), because by default the (xx) is considered as disambiguation and suppressed
This parameter is needed only when using a WebSiteShortName qualified as clever link
  • WebSiteShortName
The web site Short Name.
Nuvola apps important.svg If the short name is not recognized, this template returns the text passed as parameter.
To construct this list you can look at Category:Biology external link templates.

Nuvola apps important.svg Note: Clever links are links redirecting directly to a web page describing the taxon (using {{PAGENAME}}).
Note: These clever links may need the name=<TaxonName> parameter
Nuvola apps important.svg Note: All combination of multiple sources are now accepted (like ITIS & MSW)
Nuvola apps important.svg Note: Some deprecated WebSiteShortName add Category:Pages with incorrect biology template usage to the article
Nuvola apps important.svg Note: Unknown WebSiteShortName add Category:Pages with incorrect biology template usage to the article. You perhaps should use |ref=
  • ref=<reference> (optional)
  • ref2=<reference> (optional)
Use it if your source is not one of the preceding
