Taxonomy Revision in Botany: A Simulation of Historical Data

Eugenio Alberdi and Derek Sleeman

In this abstract we present ReTAX, a system for taxonomy revision in Botany. The function of ReTAX is to revise, and eventually modify, a taxonomic hierarchy as novel inconsistent data are provided. The system has been applied to replicate some taxonomic revisions which have taken place historically in the botanical family Ericaceae.
