Description Author(s) References Examples

Description

The class taxlist is defined in this package using the S4 language. The main task of taxlist objects is to keep the taxonomic coherence of information included in taxonomic lists and to implement functions (methods) for a proper data handling. Objects of class taxlist can be included in further objects, for instance in biodiversity records as done in the package vegtable.

For a more detailed description of this package, see Alvarez & Luebert (2018).
