General Description
A comprehensive description of the characteristics of the taxon
Diagnostic Description
Distinguishing feature of this taxon from its closest relatives.
Look Alikes
Other taxa that this taxon may be confused with. Common in invasive species communities.
Key
Diagnostic key for 'associated' species.
Morphology
The appearance of the taxon (is it only external?); e.g. Habit; antomy (thee branch of morphology
that deals with structure of animals)
Management
A statement about the level of need to manage a taxon which can be related to a piece of legislation,
e.g., a CITES list.

future.
Legislation

Threats
The threats to which this taxon is subject.
Trends
An indication of whether a population is stable, or increasing or decreasing.
Procedures
Deals with how you go about managing this taxon; what are the known threats to this taxon?
Risk Statement
Includes invasiveness, impacts
