We are currently working with our experts deciding on how "Finnishness" of species will be defined. Taxonomy Editor tool will soon be in production for our experts to start maintaining their checklists, and start tagging Finnishness statuses, etc.

We have decided with our experts, that selection of a certain name to "FinBIF master checklist" will have either a formal (bibliographic) reference or information about an informal decision (Expert + date).
