Taxobox templates

Template:Infraspeciesbox displays an automatic taxobox for a rank lower than species (an infraspecific rank) for taxa governed by the ICN  (the botanical code). For taxa governed by the ICZN  (the zoological code), see Template:Subspeciesbox.

At present it can only handle a subspecies or a variety (varietas), or the combination of the two, for a non-hybrid species. In particular, it does not handle forms. It also does not handle scientific names with the hybrid symbol ×, such as subspecies of hybrid species.

UsageEdit

The parameters are generally the same as Template:Subspeciesbox, which handles subspecies whose names are governed by the Zoological Code.

Note: the example taxoboxes below show how they would look if on a page with the scientific name as the title, when the taxobox name would be set to the page title by default.

Subspecies onlyEdit

Suppose that a species called Yucca grandiflora has a subspecies Y. g. subsp. laxifolia. Then:

{{Infraspeciesbox
| genus = Yucca
| species = grandiflora
| subspecies = laxifolia
| authority = A.Anon
}}
generates →
Yucca grandiflora subsp. laxifolia
Scientific classification edit
Kingdom: Plantae
Clade: Tracheophytes
Clade: Angiosperms
Clade: Monocots
Order: Asparagales
Family: Asparagaceae
Subfamily: Agavoideae
Genus: Yucca
Species:
Subspecies:
Y. g. subsp. laxifolia
Trinomial name
Yucca grandiflora subsp. laxifolia
A.Anon

Variety onlyEdit

Suppose that the species Yucca grandiflora has a variety Y. g. var. tenuifolia, with no intervening subspecies. Then:

{{Infraspeciesbox
| genus = Yucca
| species = grandiflora
| varietas = tenuifolia
| authority = B.Anon
}}

generates →

(The parameter "variety" can be used in place of "varietas".)
Yucca grandiflora var. tenuifolia
Scientific classification edit
Kingdom: Plantae
Clade: Tracheophytes
Clade: Angiosperms
Clade: Monocots
Order: Asparagales
Family: Asparagaceae
Subfamily: Agavoideae
Genus: Yucca

Variety:
Y. g. var. tenuifolia
Trinomial name

B.Anon

Subspecies and varietyEdit

Finally suppose that Y. g. var. tenuifolia is actually within Y. g. subsp. laxifolia. Then:

{{Infraspeciesbox
|genus = Yucca
|species = grandiflora
|subspecies = laxifolia
|varietas = tenuifolia
|authority = B.Anon
}}

generates →

Note that the ICN does not allow Y. g. subsp. laxifolia var. tenuifolia as a name.

Clade: Tracheophytes
Clade: Angiosperms

Variety:

AuthoritiesEdit

If for some reason it is desired to attach authorities, this is done by working upwards from the lowest level taxon:

{{Infraspeciesbox
|genus = Rhododendron
|greatgrandparent_authority = L.
|subgenus = R. ''subg.'' Hymenanthes
|grandparent_authority = (Blume) K. Koch
|species = irroratum
|parent_authority = Franch.
|subspecies = pogonostylum
|authority = (Balf.f. & W.W.Sm.) D.F.Chamb.
}}
generates →
Rhododendron irroratum var. pogonostylum
Scientific classification edit
Kingdom: Plantae
Clade: Tracheophytes
Clade: Angiosperms
Clade: Eudicots
Clade: Asterids
Order: Ericales
Family: Ericaceae
Genus: Rhododendron
L.
Subgenus:
R. subg. Hymenanthes

(Blume) K. Koch
Species:
Franch.
Subspecies:
R. i. subsp. pogonostylum
Trinomial name
Rhododendron irroratum subsp. pogonostylum
(Balf.f. & W.W.Sm.) D.F.Chamb.

Extinct taxaEdit

If the genus is marked as exinct in its taxonomy template, all lower ranked taxa will be shown with †. Otherwise, three parameters can be used.

  • If the target of the taxobox, whether subspecies or varietas, is extinct but higher ranked taxa are not, use |extinct=yes.
  • If the target of the taxobox is a varietas and a subspecies is included that is extinct, use |subspecies_extinct=yes. The varietas will also be shown as extinct.
  • If the species is extinct, use |species_extinct=yes. The subspecies and varietas, if present, will also be shown as extinct.
