Topic: Preferred TVK on Downloads
We have been downloading some datasets from Gateway for import into our systems. The downloads contain a 'preferred' taxon version key. However, looking at our (I believe up-to-date) taxon dictionary, the preferred TVK is wrong for the species.
For example, Chlorops meigenii is listed as having a Preferred TVK of NBNSYS0000029994; according to our dictionary it should have preferred TVK of NBNSYS0100027565.
Can anyone explain what might be happening here? Is the preferred TVK in the dataset the one that was correct at the time of upload and has since been updated??
