How are scientific names identified throughout the BHL corpus?

The Biodiversity Heritage Library uses taxonomic intelligence tools, including gnfinder developed by Global Names Architecture, to locate, verify, and record scientific names located within the text of each digitized page. The text used for this identification is usually uncorrected OCR, so may not include all results expected or visible in the page.
