Uses by Module:Autotaxobox don't show up as transclusions, but the template is potentially used as often as this module.

Usage[change source]

This template is one of a number of configuration templates in the automated taxobox system. It is used by Module:Autotaxobox|taxoboxList.

It tests whether its parameter, a Latinized rank, is a 'principal' Linnaean rank or not, returning 'yes' or 'no'. Editing this template will change which ranks are treated as principal, and therefore always displayed in an automated taxobox.

Ranks currently treated as principal are: regnum, phylum, divisio, classis, ordo, familia, genus and species, plus ichno- and oo- versions of these.

Other configuration templates are:

  • {{Anglicise rank}} – converts the Latin form that is used in taxonomy templates to the English equivalent
  • {{Is italic taxon}} – defines which ranks cause taxon names to be italicized
  • {{Taxobox colour}} – defines which taxa set the taxobox colour and what those colours are
