Script error This template is a wrapper for the function taxonInfo in Module:Autotaxobox. It is only intended for use from within templates implementing the automated taxobox system.


The template returns information held in "Template:Taxonomy/taxon". The information is ultimately returned by one of the "Don't edit this line" variant templates.

{{Taxon info|taxon|item}}<code>

<code>item has one of the following primary values:

  • parent{{Taxon info|Felis|parent}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>rank{{Taxon info|Pteranodon|rank}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>link target{{Taxon info|Pteranodon|link_target}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>plain link text{{Taxon info|Pteranodon|plain_link_text}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>extinct{{Taxon info|Pteranodon|extinct}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>always display{{Taxon info|Araneomorphae|always_display}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>refs{{Taxon info|Chenistonia|refs}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>same as{{Taxon info|Avialae/skip|same_as}}<code> → Script error

One <code>same_as link will be followed, if it is present and the direct value of the item is the empty string. Thus Template:Taxonomy/Corallinaceae/stem-group has |same as=Corallinaceae plus |rank=stem-group, so all other values are obtained from Template:Taxonomy/Corallinaceae:

  • parent{{Taxon info|Corallinaceae/stem-group|parent}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>rank{{Taxon info|Corallinaceae/stem-group|rank}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>link target{{Taxon info|Corallinaceae/stem-group|link_target}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>plain link text{{Taxon info|Corallinaceae/stem-group|plain_link_text}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>extinct{{Taxon info|Corallinaceae/stem-group|extinct}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>always display{{Taxon info|Corallinaceae/stem-group|always_display}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>refs{{Taxon info|Corallinaceae/stem-group|refs}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>same as{{Taxon info|Corallinaceae/stem-group|same_as}}<code> → Script error

A special case is if the item requested has the value <code>all. In this case, no same_as link is followed. All the values in the taxon's taxonomy template will be returned, separated by "$", in the order parent$rank$link$link_text$always_display$extinct$same_as$refs.

  • {{Taxon info|Corallinaceae/stem-group|all}}<code> → Script error
  • <code>{{Taxon info|Corallinaceae|all}}<code> → Script error</div>
