Note to self and others

Arachnolingua focuses its OWL expressions on the claim (= assertion, statement) of an individual behavior event or class expression and properties should start there and work out.  Thus: courtship_event –has_participant–>palp–part_of–>male–has_type–>Habronattus sp.  There may be consequences for this decision (especially for class level statements), but it is better to be consistent and document the design decision here for now.

This should eventually make it into the ‘primer’ documents for the curation tool and the database schema as well.  I wonder if there are any tools in Protege for looking at graphs of individuals – maybe lego?
