veneer
http://eol.org/schema/terms/veneer
thin slices of wood, usually thinner than 3 mm (1/8 inch),[1] that typically are glued onto core panels (typically, wood, particle board or medium-density fiberboard) to produce flat panels such as doors, tops and panels for cabinets, parquet floors and parts of furniture. They are also used in marquetry

verbatim coordinate system
http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/verbatimCoordinateSystem
The coordinate format for the verbatimLatitude and verbatimLongitude or the verbatimCoordinates of the Location.
verbatim event date
http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/verbatimEventDate
The verbatim original representation of the date and time information for an Event.
verbatim latitude
http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/verbatimLatitude
The verbatim original latitude of the Location. The coordinate ellipsoid, geodeticDatum, or full Spatial Reference System (SRS) for these coordinates should be stored in verbatimSRS and the coordinate system should be stored in verbatimCoordinateSystem.
verbatim longitude
http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/verbatimLongitude
The verbatim original longitude of the Location. The coordinate ellipsoid, geodeticDatum, or full Spatial Reference System (SRS) for these coordinates should be stored in verbatimSRS and the coordinate system should be stored in verbatimCoordinateSystem.
version
http://eol.org/schema/terms/Version
version or edition of a published document or resource.
vertisol
http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/ENVO_00002254
A soil in which there is a high content of expansive clay known as montmorillonite that forms deep cracks in drier seasons or years. Alternate shrinking and swelling causes self-mulching, where the soil material consistently mixes itself, causing vertisols to have an extremely deep A horizon and no B horizon.
vertivore
http://eol.org/schema/terms/vertivore
carnivorous animal which eats primarily vertebrates
very large
http://purl.bioontology.org/ontology/SNOMEDCT/258262008
A qualitative descriptor of a size that is considerably more than typical
very long-persistent
http://eol.org/schema/terms/veryLongPersistentSeedBank
Of seed bank longevity. Seed bank longevity is at least >= 30 yr.

very small
http://dicom.nema.org/resources/ontology/DCM/112132
A qualitative descriptor of a size that is considerably less than typical.

The sensory system subserving the sense of vision.
vitamins
http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/CHEBI_33229
Any micronutrient that is an organic compound. The term "vitamines" (from vita + amines) was coined in 1912 by Casimir Funk, who believed that these compounds were amines.
vivarium

volcanic
http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/ENVO_00000094
A feature associated with a volcano, an opening, or rupture, in the Earth's surface or crust, which allows hot, molten rock, ash and gases to escape from deep below the surface.
volcanic arc
http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/ENVO_00000351
A chain of volcanic islands or mountains formed by plate tectonics as an oceanic tectonic plate subducts under another tectonic plate and produces magma.
volcanic cone
http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/ENVO_00000398
Built by fragments (called ejecta) thrown up (ejected) from a volcanic vent, piling up around the vent in the shape of a cone with a central crater.
volcanic crater
http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/ENVO_00000246

volcano
http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/ENVO_00000247

voucher id
http://eol.org/schema/terms/VoucherID
The best available identifier for locating this voucher specimen.
vulnerable
http://eol.org/schema/terms/vulnerable
A taxon is Vulnerable when the best available evidence indicates that it meets any of the criteria A to E for Vulnerable, and it is therefore considered to be facing a high risk of extinction in the wild.
http://www.iucnredlist.org/technical-documents/categories-and-criteria
vulnerable
https://eol.org/schema/terms/vulnerable_NS
At moderate risk of extirpation in the jurisdiction due to a fairly restricted range, relatively few populations or occurrences, recent and widespread declines, threats, or other factors.
