Comment: One row per taxon studied. For now, this is a very simplified taxon model with no identification of the taxonomy being used, and there can be only two names, one scientific and one common.
|taxonid||integer Auto Increment [nextval('taxon_taxonid_seq')]||Unique row identifier. The value of this column is automatically assigned by the system; the normal practice, which results in a system generated id, is to omit this column when inserting new rows or to supply a NULL value. The value of this column cannot be NULL.|
|scientific_name||character varying(128)||The scientific name for the taxon, using for example the NCBI or the ITIS taxonomies.|
|common_name||character varying(64) NULL||The common name for the taxon. This need not be the most common or generally accepted name, but the common name used within the study.|
