In order to develop an abstract model that encompasses how various data providers and users represent Taxon Concepts the schema development team from Napier University (JessieKennedy and RobertKukla) held face-to-face meetings throughout early 2004 with a variety of the interested parties. Brief notes from these meetings are provided (below), and the schema model was developed in the light of Napier's understanding of how each of the different users and providers wished and required to model their own data.
