    @Cyndy Parr: The DwC-A Media file has columns for Publisher, generic Contributor and Creator (can be assumed to be photographer for photos, author for text, etc.). So those fields can be used to provide multiple agents and can also accept semi-colon delimited lists of multiple names in each column.

    To get the precise role names and especially to include agent metadata such as the homepage, it is necessary to include the Agents file and include a semi-colon delimited list of AgentIDs in the Media file. This structure is not endorsed by the creators of the DwC archive as associating extensions with Media as opposed to Taxon breaks the star schema that the archives were intended to represent. EOL does allow references and agents associated with Media and I am happy to help a partner create such a archive with such associations.

    @Cyndy Parr: The thumbnailURL is relevant for videos as well as other media types. For example see http://eol.org/api/data_objects/1.0/207f85a543f0d9a455e02ed5e42ce71c.json . This field contains the URL of a thumbnail hosted by EOL. The thumbnail will have been resized to meet the needs of our site design.

    Many of the thumbnails will have been supplied by our Content Partners but if we are able to create one automatically we will serve it using the same field. It is highly recommended that partners provide their own thumbnail if they have one so the frame can be representative of the video.

    For those that are interested there is another good compilation at http://sn2000.taxonomy.nl/Main/Index/Homonyms/A1.htm

    @Roderic Page: I just downloaded a version of the 2010 database provided in the second section on http://www.catalogueoflife.org/services/instructions.html, which is at http://4d4life.eu/downloads/CoLupdate_01062010_data.zip . The record_id 2322671 does refer to Papio in this version (with LSID urn:lsid:catalogueoflife.org:taxon:d7a1f584-29c1-102b-9a4a-00304854f820:col20100701), so EOL is representing the July 1st updated version of the 2010 Catalogue of Life. I'm not sure how many identifiers are different between the versions, but I tried Papio hamadryas: http://eol.org/api/search_by_provider/1.0/6873687.json?hierarchy_id=529 and found them to be consistent, but many higher taxa have different record_ids. I believe one problem we had with the CD version was there were no orders of Aves - a problem reflected in the published version: http://www.catalogueoflife.org/annual-checklist/2010/browse/tree/id/2243478. Exposing the GBIF classification and identifiers in the API is a good idea - I'll put in a ticket to capture it.

    Hi Rod - the label 2009 is indeed wrong and I have changed it to 2010. This was caused by different database entities having different labels (datasets vs hierarchies), resulting in this unfortunate error. I am trying to figure out precisely which version of COL 2010 we are representing. It looks like these records in our database were created on 2010-08-09, so I my best guess is this was the July 1st version of the 2010 Annual Checklist, and I am currently trying to find a copy of that version to confirm. The provider identifier does map to the 'record_id' column in the 'taxa' table in the COL dataset. Cyndy has been urging us to get the 2012 version indexed ASAP and I hope to have that in by the end of next week at the lastest. I will post an update later today if I am able to confirm which version of the 'Annual' checklist we are representing.
