[…] names. On the one hand are tools for the fundamental task of recognising names within text, such as the dictionary-based TaxonFinder [], Linnaneus [] and OrganismTagger []; the machine learning-based NetiNeti []; and hybrid systems such as TaxonGrab [] and SPECIES []. On the other hand are name-linking tools which are aimed at resolving taxonomic names mentioned in text to their preferred names, a […]

[…] later stages of the ontology building process by domain experts.Other string matching software exists for examining BHL-generated OCR text, primarily focused on taxon name discovery. TaxonFinder and NetiNeti determine relevant BHL articles for a user by utilizing a controlled vocabulary, or taxon name lists. Although anatomy ontology term usage in descriptive articles has potential as a viable m […]
