NAME

       HTML::Microformats::Format::species - the species microformat

SYNOPSIS

        use HTML::Microformats::DocumentContext;
        use HTML::Microformats::Format::hCard;

        my $context = HTML::Microformats::DocumentContext->new($dom, $uri);
        my @objects = HTML::Microformats::Format::species->extract_all(
                          $dom->documentElement, $context);
        foreach my $species (@objects)
        {
          print $species->get_binomial . "\n";
        }

DESCRIPTION

       HTML::Microformats::Format::species inherits from HTML::Microformats::Format. See the base
       class definition for a description of property getter/setter methods, constructors, etc.

MICROFORMAT

       The species documentation at <http://microformats.org/wiki/species> is very sketchy. This
       module aims to be roughly compatible with the implementation of species in the Operator
       extension for Firefox, and data published by the BBC and Wikipedia. Here are some brief
       notes on how is has been impemented:

       ·   The root class name is 'biota'.

       ·   Important properties are 'vernacular' (alias 'common-name', 'cname' or 'fn'),
           'binomial', 'trinomial', 'authority'.

       ·   Also recognised are 'class', 'division', 'family', 'genus', 'kingdom', 'order',
           'phylum', 'species' and various other ranks.

       ·   Because some of these property names are fairly generic, you can alternatively use
           them in a prefixed form: 'taxo-class', 'taxo-division', etc.

       ·   If an element with class 'biota' has no recognised properties within it, the entire
           contents of the element are taken to be a binomial name. This allows for very simple
           markup:

             <i class="biota">Homo sapiens</i>

       ·   The meaning of some terminology differs when used by botanists and zoologists.  You
           can add the class 'botany' or 'zoology' to the root element to clarify your usage.
           e.g.

             <i class="biota zoology">Homo sapiens</i>

       An example:

         <span class="biota zoology">
           <i class="binomial">
             <span class="genus">Homo</span>
             <span class="species">sapiens</span>
             <span class="subspecies">sapiens</span>
           </i>
           (<span class="authority">Linnaeus, 1758</span>)
           a.k.a. <span class="vernacular">Humans</span>
         </span>
