    Abstract

    The prototype toolkit, called LITCHI, uses constraints and constraint violation repair techniques to enable the automated detection and, where possible, the automated resolution of conflicts in taxonomic databases. The LITCHI software has been used successfully on various test sets. LITCHI has led to the discovery that individual checklists are less consistent than had been anticipated, although its initial purpose was to detect conflicts between distinct checklists.
