Decomposition of Oxalate by Microorganisms
INTRODUCTION Oxalic acid is often accumulated as a metabolic end-product in plant cells either as the free acid, as sodium and potassium oxalate, or precipitated as an insoluble salt most commonly calcium oxalate. Deposits of calcium oxalate occur as microscopic crystals in many different organs and tissues a wide variety of plant taxa. Their accumulated amount varies among species and may comprise up to 85 % of dry weight of some plants [1]. In the animal kingdom oxalate and its salts are presented in urine and blood of mammals. Much of the oxalate in animals originates from the oxalate ingested with plant material, although mammals through the oxidation of glyoxlate and ascorbate synthesize minute amounts. OXALATE AND MICROORGANISMS Many fungi, belonging to Ascomycetes, Basidiomycetes and Zygomycetes, a few Lichens [2] and slime mold genera Perichaena and Dianema [3] produce calcium oxalate crystals during some phase of their life cycle. Accumulation of oxalate by fungi, particularly in Aspergillus, Penicillium

November, 2002 Taxonomies have recently emerged from the quiet backwaters of biology, book indexing, and library science into the corporate limelight. They are supposed to be the silver bullets that will help users find the needle in the intranet haystack, reduce "friction" in electronic commerce, facilitate scientific research, and promote global collaboration. But before this can happen, practitioners need to dispel the myths and confusion, created in part by the multi-disciplinary nature of the task and the hype surrounding content management technologies. What is a "taxonomy?"

Terms Pertaining to Zoological Nomenclature
Allotype
A specimen designated from the type series that is the opposite sex of the holotype.
Available name
A name that is correctly proposed according to the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. An available name is not necessarily the valid name.
Category
Any rank within the classification hierarchy, e.g., family, subfamily, subspecies.
Change of rank
When a name is moved from one level of the classification system to another, e.g., when De Lotto (1955) moved Ceroplastes destructor brevicauda from the subspecies to the species rank C. brevicauda this was a change of rank.
Classification
A system of nested hierarchical categories used to efficiently store information about the diversity of life.
Classify
To place a taxon in a classification system.
Cotypes
A term no longer recognized in the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature; synonymous with syntypes.
Emendation
An intentional change to a previously proposed name, e.g., Lindinger proposed the emendation Hemiberlesea for the armored scale Hemiberlesia indicating that it was originally improperly formed.

A taxonomy of Internet Commerce by Paul Bambury It is also an empirically derivedclassification system or taxonomy of existing Internet business models.
http://www.firstmonday.dk/issues/issue3_10/bambury/
Read related articles on Internet economics This paper attempts to clarify terminology discussing the interface between commerce and the Internet. It is also an empirically derived classification system or taxonomy of existing Internet business models. This taxonomy has two main branches - transplanted real-world business models and native Internet business models. The latter part of the paper discusses the role of business, governments, regulation and ideology in the development of I-Commerce and makes some cautious speculations regarding its future.

Conclusion: Internet Imperialism

There are several terms used to describe business that takes place on the Internet. These include Electronic Commerce (E-Commerce) the Information Economy the Online Economy and Internet Commerce . Literal interpretations of these terms denote particular domains of activity and little rigour is applied to their application. As the terms Electronic Commerce (E-Commerce) the Information Economy , and the Online Economy denote activities not limited to the Internet the term Internet Commerce (or I-Commerce ) will be used in this document to denote commercial activities associated with the Internet. The term

http://www.nwlink.com/~donclark/hrd/bloom.html
Learning Domains or Bloom's Taxonomy
The Three Types of Learning There is more than one type of learning. A committee of colleges, led by Benjamin Bloom, identified three domains of educational activities. The three domains are cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. Since the work was produced by higher education, the words tend to be a little bigger than we are normally used to. Domains can be thought of as categories. Cognitive is for mental skills (Knowledge), affective is for growth in feelings or emotional areas (Attitude), while psychomotor is for manual or physical skills (Skills). Trainers often refer to these as KAS, SKA, or KSA (Knowledge, Attitude, and Skills). This taxonomy of learning behaviors can be thought of as "the goals of the training process." That is, after the training session, the learner should have acquires these new skills, knowledge, or attitudes. The committee then produced an elaborate compilation for the cognitive and affective domains, but none for the psychomotor domain. Their explanation for this oversight was that they have little experience in teaching manual skills within the college level (I guess they never thought to check with their sports or drama department). This compilation divides the three domains into subdivisions, starting from the simplest behavior to the most complex. The divisions outlined are not absolutes and there are other systems or hierarchies that have been devised in the educational and training world. However, Bloom's taxonomy is easily understood and is probably the most widely applied one in use today.

Marine Biology
With
Ms. M. Hello! Welcome to my webpage. This page is being created to help my students and the members of the school club that I sponsor. The club is a Marine Science Club. I teach Biology and Marine Biology. While trying to get the members of my club prepared for the National Ocean Science Bowl, and having my students do a project on taxonomy, I found that it isn't simple to find full taxonomy without a lot of trouble. Thus was the beginning of this project.
I attempt to make information available for my students. Being a very small district (only one high school) and on the lower end of the financial scheme, any extra info. has to be donated. This is my donation. Hopefully this site will be of some value to others (not just my students).
I am rather new at making a wegpage, so please be patient with me. I will be updating this site daily. I would appreciate any feedback. Also, donations are always welcome to help the club make it to the National Ocean Science Bowl. If you would like to help out please click on the link below.

Global Taxonomy Initiative
Background
Governments, through the Convention on Biological Diversity, have acknowledged the existence of a "taxonomic impediment" to the sound management of biodiversity. The purpose of the Global Taxonomic Initiative (GTI) is to remove or reduce this taxonomic impediment - in other words, the knowledge gaps in our taxonomic system (including those associated with genetic systems), the shortage of trained taxonomists and curators, and the impact these deficiencies have on our ability to conserve, use and share the benefits of our biological diversity. The GTI has been established by the Conference of the Parties to address the lack of taxonomic information and expertise available in many parts of the world, and thereby to improve decision-making in conservation, sustainable use and equitable sharing of the benefits derived from genetic resources. The GTI is specifically intended to support implementation of the work programmes of the Convention on thematic and cross cutting issues. Given the many competing demands for capacity building in taxonomy, activities under the GTI must be clearly linked to the implementation of Convention.
