  • Taxonomia - been here since 9 jan 2006 quite some time something being incorrect? Hendricus 14:46, 30 Decembris 2007 (UTC)
I moved the page for consistency. The form taxonomia certainly exists, but taxinomia is grammatically preferable and we have usually used it on other pages. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 16:44, 30 Decembris 2007 (UTC)

Nonne est paginae Classificatio biologica et Taxinomia cognominatae??? --SECUNDUS ZEPHYRUS 11:45, 27 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)

Non commiscendae sunt. Classificatio biologica = en:Biological classification et de:Taxonomie in der Biologie, sed Taxinomia = en:Taxonomy et de:Taxonomie. IacobusAmor 13:31, 27 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)
Taxinomia pagina ipsa "Taxinomia [...] est biologiae pars quae classificationem systematicam viventium describit" dixit. --SECUNDUS ZEPHYRUS 15:12, 27 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)
Definitio fuit falsa: taxinomia non est biologiae pars: classificatio biologica est taxinomiae exemplum! Ergo commentarium emendavimus. ¶ Just to explain further: taxonomy is a much bigger field than biological taxonomy. It includes economic taxonomies, military taxonomies, philosophical taxonomies, artistic taxonomies, and other potential taxonomies. Biological classification is a subset of it. As en: explains, a taxonomy is typically
"organized by supertype-subtype relationships, also called generalization-specialization relationships, or less formally, parent-child relationships. In such an inheritance relationship, the subtype by definition has the same properties, behaviors, and constraints as the supertype plus one or more additional properties, behaviors, or constraints. For example, car is a subtype of vehicle. So any car is also a vehicle, but not every vehicle is a car. Therefore, a type needs to satisfy more constraints to be a car than to be a vehicle. Another example, any shirt is also a piece of clothing, but not every piece of clothing is a shirt. Hence, a type must satisfy more parameters to be a shirt than to be a piece of clothing."
The taxonomies of cars & shirts have nothing to do with biology. Cars, shirts, and biological hierarchies are examples of taxonomy. And the article that's one of the 1000 celebrated pages is Taxinomia, not (the very much smaller concept of) Classificatio biologica. IacobusAmor 18:01, 27 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)
Though Classificatio biologica might be a smaller topic, it lends itself to a much longer encyclopedic article. Darn. --SECUNDUS ZEPHYRUS 18:18, 27 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)
