Unit ref:
The Life Science Identifier (LSID) is a standard URI for a biological taxon. Biological taxon is a name or other label identifying an organism or a group of organisms as belonging to a unit of classification in a hierarchical taxonomy. The LSID is a URN with the syntax "urn:lsid:::[:]". For example, the copepod Calocalanus pavo may be represented by LSIDs "" (based on WoRMS) and "" (based on ITIS). These URNs may be converted to URLs delivering RDF by prefixing with "".
