Edit-copy green.svg Documentation for Template:taxlink. [edit]
This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.

This template categorizes entries with missing taxonomic names, so that the missing names can be added (if not spelling mistakes). If it is used for a taxonomic name for which Wiktionary has an entry, it links to that entry and categorizes the entry into Category:Entries with redundant template: taxlink. Such templates are removed.

It requires a parameter to indicate what level the taxon is, eg, family, tribe, genus, species, epithet.

The optional parameter "nomul=1" should be used if the page linked to already exists, but it doesn't have a Translingual section or lacks the wanted definition. For example, a plant genus name may be present, but not a needed animal genus name.


The taxon.
The level (rank) of the taxon: for instance, family, tribe, genus, species; also clade, informal group, nothospecies, variety.
