ready Flora Phenotype Ontology

Abbreviation: FLOPO

General Information
The Flora Phenotype Ontology is a domain ontology for the description of plant characters. FLOPO contains more than 25000 phenotype and traits classes, the creation of FLOPO is data-driven: For each trait/phenotype class exists a taxon annotation in the underlying Floras.

OBO Foundry
The Open Biological and Biomedical Ontology (OBO) Foundry is a collective of ontology developers that are committed to collaboration and adherence to shared principles. The mission of the OBO Foundry is to develop a family of interoperable ontologies that are both logically well-formed and scientifically accurate. To achieve this, OBO Foundry participants voluntarily adhere to and contribute to the development of an evolving set of principles including open use, collaborative development, non-overlapping and strictly-scoped content, and common syntax and relations, based on ontology models that work well, such as the Gene Ontology (GO). The OBO Foundry is overseen by an Operations Committee with Editorial, Technical and Outreach working groups.
