tblIdentifications contains record of identifications on labels or in publications or by placement in trays. Each identification must have either HigherTaxonName or a genus name that can be located via NomenclatorID. If the genus is specified, then HigherTaxonName is left blank. RefID, IdentifierName, PlaceInCollection, and IdentificationModeNote are the four possible sources of identification. At least one source of identification must be stated. Placement in collection is considered not worth recording if one of the other sources is listed. If the identification is from the literature, then RefID > 0. In that case, names of subgenera, genera and higher taxa must be present in tblTaxa. If RefID = 0, names of taxa are not required to be present in tblTaxa.

  • SpecimenID, integer, 4 bytes, = tblSpecimens.SpecimenID
  • SeqNum, integer, 2 bytes, sequence number for identifications for this specimen; SpecimenID and SeqNum together form the primary key
  • HigherTaxonName, text, 30 characters maximum, name of taxon higher than genus rank, used only when there is no identification at genus rank or lower
  • NomenclatorID, integer, 4 bytes, = tblNomenclator.NomenclatorID
  • TaxonIdentNote, text, 300 characters maximum, any additional taxon related information contained with the identification
  • TypeKindID, integer, 4 bytes, = tblTypeKinds.TypeKindID; kind of type, 0 if none
  • Topotype, integer, 1 byte, 0 = not a topotype, 1 = is a topotype
  • TypeTaxonNameID, integer, 4 bytes. If TypeKindID and Topotype both = 0, then TypeTaxonNameID = 0. If either TypeKindID or Topotype > 0, then TypeTaxonNameID = tblTaxa.TaxonNameID of the name for which this specimen is a type.
  • RefID, integer, 4 bytes, = tblRefs.RefID, published reference with this specimen identified
  • IdentifierName, text, 50 characters maximum, name of person on identification label. To be deleted when linking table to tblPeople is available.
  • IdentifierID, integer, 4 bytes, = tblPeople.PersonID. For future implementation, probably in a separate linking table.
  • Year, integer, 2 bytes, year stated on an identification label
  • PlaceInCollection, integer, 1 byte, 0 = not the source of the identification, 1 = the identification information is based solely on the placement in a collection
  • IdentificationModeNote, text, 200 characters maximum, information about the source of the identification
  • IdentQualifier, text, 30 character maximum, qualifying text associated with identification
  • VerbatimLabel, text, 1000 character maximum, full text of identification label
  • LastUpdate, smalldatetime, date and time row last updated
  • ModifiedBy, integer, 4 bytes, FileUserID of the signon that made the change
  • CreatedOn, smalldatetime, date and time row was created
  • CreatedBy, integer, 4 bytes, FileUserID of the signon that created the row
