Can have context?

Nike (talk)06:22, 17 February 2013

None of the "Database" entries truly have a context, because they are pulled from the database (!) onto the pages as needed.

In this particular set (translated ranks), what you're translating is what biologists call a "rank," ie: Kingdom, Phylum, Order, Species, etc. This particular term (forma) is used by botanists, for example broccoli and cabbage are two different "forma" of a single species (believe it or not). Wikipedia says it well enough: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forma_(botany)

This is the sort of context needed. :) I've added it to EOL:Database-translated ranks-label-rank id-107/qqq; please do the same for other specific terms. If you also have particular indications (e.g. to keep in Latin, to follow scientifical terminology etc.), this is also useful context to add to qqq.
