DELTA DEscription Language for TAxonomy
The DELTA format (DEscription Language for TAxonomy) is a flexible method for encoding taxonomic descriptions for computer processing. DELTA-format data can be used to produce natural-language descriptions, conventional or interactive keys, cladistic or phenetic classifications, and information-retrieval systems. According to the information provided to the Secretariat, the database contains: wood anatomical macroscopic description and illustration of 130 internationally traded timber (including 16 CITES-protected timbers); and wood anatomical microscopic description and illustration of 53 internationally traded softwoods (including 8 CITES-protected timbers).
