DELTA: DEscription Language for TAxonomy

The DELTA format is a flexible method for encoding taxonomic descriptions for computer processing. DELTA format data can be used to produce natural-language descriptions, keys, classifications (cladistic and phenetic), and systems for interactive identification and information retrieval. The site, a compendium of information about the topic, including links to programs and documentation, is supported by the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization's (CSIRO) Entomology Program.
