Hi Jayne,    (01)

Good resources about ontologies can be found on our wiki at:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?RecommendedReadingResource    (02)

... as well as from the archives of all the wonderful sessions 
we've been having, under: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?WikiHomePage#nidZ    (03)

As we have not been doing much about taxonomies here at Ontolog 
... I would recommend, as good resources on taxonomies, for one 
to check out Denise Bedford's presentation she made at one of 
Susan Turnbull and Brand Niemann's Collaboration Expedition 
Workshop (#31/NSF/2004.04.28) -- see:
http://colab.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ExpeditionWorkshop/MultipleTaxonomiesWorkshop_2004_04_28#nid5S    (04)

The theme of that event was on multiple taxonomies, ontologies 
and the semantic web. Therefore, most of the other presentations 
on that day are probably of interest ... and they were all excellent.    (05)

Cheers.  =ppy    (06)

[ppy] Yes, Jayne is right ... there was some distribution problem 
over the last few days. However, all messages got into the html 
archives properly. Please check that - 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/forum/ontolog-forum/2005-07/index.html - 
to make sure you didn't miss anything.  Our (cim3) apologies.  =ppy
