Proposal from Jayne Ireland on behalf of EuroFIR WP1.6
Submitted 2007-09-18 - Discussion closed.
Descriptors in bold and italics are suggested new descriptors.
LanguaL proposals from latest EuroFIR food indexing:
|HONEY||PLANT USED AS FOOD SOURCE [B1347] or PLANT USED FOR PRODUCING EXTRACT OR CONCENTRATE [B1013] or FRUIT-PRODUCING PLANT [B1140] or INSECT [B1220]? Scope Note needed!|
|ROYAL JELLY||PLANT USED AS FOOD SOURCE [B1347] or PLANT USED FOR PRODUCING EXTRACT OR CONCENTRATE [B1013] or FRUIT-PRODUCING PLANT [B1140] or INSECT [B1220]? Scope Note needed!|
Wikipedia: "German Chamomile (Matricaria recutita), also spelled
Camomile, is an annual plant of the sunflower family Asteraceae.
Synonyms are: Chamomilla chamomilla, Chamomilla recutita (accepted name
according to the Flora Europaea), Matricaria chamomilla, and Matricaria
suaveolens. It usually grows near populated areas all over Europe and
temperate Asia. It is widely introduced in temperate North America and
Australia. As the seeds need open soil to survive, it often grows near
roads, around landfills and in cultivated fields as a weed. Other names
include Wild Chamomile, Hungarian Chamomile, and Scented Mayweed."
Does this agree with LanguaL AI "<SCINAM>Anthemis nobilis L. [BASIS] <GRIN>104133 <MANSFELD>32403" ??
Should we add SYNONYMS : Camomile, German Chamomile, Wild Chamomile, Hungarian Chamomile, Scented Mayweed ?
|peas||SWEET PEA [B1487]||
URGENT !!! Sweet Pea (Lathyrus odoratus) is a flowering plant.
Wikipedia:"Unlike most peas, the seeds of the sweet pea are poisonous as
they contain a neurotoxin, and should not be eaten."
This descriptor was used for "PEAS IN THE POD" in Precombined Terms !
=> either remove from BT PEA, EDIBLE SEED CULTIVARS [B1001] as it causes confusion (not being EDIBLE !) and/or replace with Pisum sativum (the usual garden pea)
GARDEN PEA (preferred name in ITIS)
<SCINAM>Pisum sativum L.
|SNOW PEA [B2466] and SUGAR PEA, EDIBLE POD [B2467]||
what is difference between SNOW PEA [B2466] and SUGAR PEA, EDIBLE POD
They have same scientific name and have synonym "edible-podded pea"
=> deactivate SUGAR PEA, EDIBLE POD [B2467] and declare as synonym of SNOW PEA [B2466]
=> Or deactivate both descriptors and declare them as synonyms of the broader term PEA, EDIBLE POD CULTIVARS [B1031]
Wikipedia: "In general parlance the terms 'dove' and 'pigeon' are used
somewhat interchangeably. In ornithological practice, there is a
tendency for 'dove' to be used for smaller species and 'pigeon' for
larger ones, but this is in no way consistently applied, and
historically the common names for these birds involve a great deal of
variation between the term 'dove' and 'pigeon'."
=> place DOVE as synonym or NT to PIGEON [B1304]
|EUGENIA SPP. [B2921]||rename: EUGENIA (eugenia spp should be its synonym), RT= ROSEAPPLE [B2020]|
|ROSEAPPLE [B2020]||set RT = EUGENIA [B2921]|
new NT needed: PECTEN MAXIMUS
BT SCALLOP [B1489]
<SCINAM>Pecten maximus (Linnaeus, 1758)
syn: Coquille Saint-Jacques
SALMON [B2250] is defined as oncorhynchus spp. This definition is not
correct, as this BT should also include Salmo salar.
ATLANTIC SALMON [B1587] (Salmo salar) needs to be included in the TREE table so that it will appear in the hierarchy under SALMON [B2250] !
|PLUM [B1206]||PRUNE [B1207] should be deactivated, prefer PLUM [B1206] (similar to rule for grape-raisin)|
|verbena||SPICE OR FLAVOR-PRODUCING PLANT [B1179]||
new term COMMON VERBENA
BT: SPICE OR FLAVOR-PRODUCING PLANT [B1179] or VERBENA (see below)
<SCINAM>Verbena officinalis L.
synonyms: common vervain ; verbena officinalis
|SPICE OR FLAVOR-PRODUCING PLANT [B1179]||LEMON VERBENA [B2953]
according to Wikipedia, its synonym is Lemon beebrush
|Verbena||SPICE OR FLAVOR-PRODUCING PLANT [B1179]||
because of similarity in name, both COMMON VERBENA and LEMON VERBENA
could be placed under a same BT: VERBENA
=>new term VERBENA
synonyms: vervain ; verbena ssp
