Taxobox templates

This template is used to display a taxobox for a hybrid of two animal species within a single genus whose taxonomy is stored in the taxonomy templates of the automated taxobox system, provided that no ranks between species and genus are to be displayed (since it works by looking for the parent taxon of the genus).

For plants with nothospecies names (e.g. Chrysanthemum × morifolium) use {{Speciesbox}}. This template is used for animals such as the liger, Panthera leo × P. tigris.

UsageEdit

Usage is similar to Template:Speciesbox (with one slight variation noted below).

Cases in which the sex of each species parent is irrelevantEdit

Dzo
Scientific classification edit
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Mammalia
Order: Artiodactyla
Family: Bovidae
Subfamily: Bovinae
Tribe: Bovini
Genus: Bos
Species:

In this case, use the genus, species1 and species2; if the article on either species is not at the scientific name, use link1 and/or link2. For example, the taxobox to the right was formed by the following code:

{{Hybridbox
 | name     = Dzo
 | genus    = Bos
 | species1 = grunniens
 | link1    = Yak
 | species2 = primigenius
 | link2    = Aurochs
}}

Cases in which the sex of each species parent is relevantEdit

Liger
Scientific classification edit
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Mammalia
Order: Carnivora
Suborder: Feliformia
Family: Felidae
Subfamily: Pantherinae
Genus: Panthera
Species:

For some hybrids, which species is male and which is female is a part of the definition of the hybrid. For example, an animal whose father is a lion and mother is a tiger would be called a liger, while if the father is a tiger and the mother is a lioness the animal would be called a tigon. In this case, the species names should use father and mother, and the links would be father_link and mother_link. For example, the taxobox to the right was formed by the following code:

{{Hybridbox
 | name        = Liger
 | genus       = Panthera
 | father      = leo
 | father_link = Lion
 | mother      = tigris
 | mother_link = Tiger
}}

Requirement for correct displayEdit

The template will generate a taxobox which will display correctly only if the taxonomy for the genus has already been created (i.e. Template:Taxonomy/genusname already exists). If it does not, you will be asked to create it. One way is to look for the "fix" link and open it.
