 Wikispecies FAQ - Meta
Wikispecies is an open, wiki-based, species directory that provides a solution to the problem that there is no central registration of species data.
Wikispecies is not currently part of the Wikimedia Commons, partly because the role of the two is very different, and the two projects attract different audiences.
Having Wikispecies separate from the Commons also allows people interested in this data to be able to download it in a suitable format, rather than having to sort out which parts of the database are species-related, and which are large amounts of images that are not relevant to them.

 Agriculture and Life Sciences News - Websites of Interest - April
Wikispecies (Wikimedia Foundation) is an exciting new project intended to be an extensive, open directory of species covering plantae, animalia, bacteria, fungi, and more.
This project is aimed at a scientific audience and is a collaborative venture that will evolve through the input and needs of its users.
Therefore, Wikispecies is putting out the word to naturalists, scientists, and other taxonomists to help develop this centralized base for taxonomic information.

 NET NEWS: Calling All Taxonomists -- 307 (5712): 1021a -- Science
It's such a daunting job that nobody has pulled it off in more than 200 years: compiling a list of the world's known species.
But the organizers of a new project called Wikispecies hope that everyone from biologists to birders will lend their know-how to a comprehensive online catalog of the world's roughly 1.8 million kinds of living things, such as the raft spider (Dolomedes fimbriatus).
But Wikispecies is aimed at scientists rather than the general public.
