News record: [77347] New Database Schema

Draft versions of the new database schema and table descriptions for the morphbank system can be viewed here. Among other things, the new schema follows established standards, such as Darwin Core version 2.0 for specimen data, allows image annotation, and provides for validation of taxonomic names by integration with ITIS. Comments are appreciated and can be mailed to mbadmin at scs dot fsu dot edu.
