    • Should any of the existing element names be changed? Possible reasons to do so are a) consistency within the schema (Collector->Collectors), b) agreement with elements in ABCD or elsewhere (BasisOfRecord->RecordBasis), c) better reflection of the intended content of the element (Collector->CollectorsOrObservers), and d) now, if ever, is the time to make such changes. One reason not to do so is effect on existing installations, mappings, and documentation.
    • LifeStage - should this element go into the Curatorial extension as a biological individual element?
    • Sex - should this element go into the Curatorial extension as a biological individual element?

    • Sex - should this element go into the Curatorial extension as a biological individual element?
    • Attributes - should this element go into the Curatorial extension as a biological individual element?
    • Habitat - should this element be added to the Core? It is an attribute of the occurrence location? The following description is proposed: "A free text description of the environmental properties at the time and place of the collection or observation. Examples might include vegetation, associated species, substrate, moisture, topography, temperature, water quality, etc." This element would be fully compatible with ABCD's Gathering/Biotope/Text.
Changed:

    • EstablishmentMeans? (or some better alternative name) - should ValidDistributionFlag be replaced by a new element in the Core with the following description? "The historical relationship of the occurrence to the cited time and place of collection or observation. Examples: 'wild', 'captive', 'invasive', 'cultivated', 'cultivated ex wild', 'persisting from cultivation'".

    • EstablishmentMeans? (or some other name such as Origin or PropogationType?) - should ValidDistributionFlag be replaced by a new element in the Core with the following description? "The historical relationship of the occurrence to the cited time and place of collection or observation. Examples: 'wild', 'captive', 'cultivated', 'cultivated ex wild', 'persisting from cultivation'".
 
    • Collector - should this element go into the Curatorial Extension to join CollectorNumber, or should CollectorNumber be in the Core?
    • AssociatedSpecies? - should this element be added to the Core or elsewhere? Description not yet proposed.
    • ImageURL - This element has very limited capacity (a single URL to an image). It is likely to undergo change with any serious review. Should we consider a media extension and remove this element from consideration in the Core?
