New category Category:Anatomy websites created[edit]

New category Category:Anatomy websites created. If you know any pages which fall under this category, please add category to that page. Thanks. --Was a bee (talk) 17:32, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, how interesting. --Tom (LT) (talk) 01:31, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Inculusion of UBERON ID is requested at Infobox_Anatomy[edit]

Inclusion of IDs of Uberon (multi-species anatomy ontology) from Wikidata (d:Property talk:P1554) into {{Infobox anatomy}} is requested at Template talk:Infobox anatomy. Any comments or questions are welcome. --Was a bee (talk) 07:39, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, that sounds very useful, in particular because it is inter-species. Is the wikidata side of things already filled out? I've had a look at Head ([1]), fascinating. --Tom (LT) (talk) 01:35, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
Currently I'm adding little by little. Now, about 300 items are registered[2]. At the end, 3,000 or 4,000 items will be added. --Was a bee (talk) 00:49, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Tagging anatomy and sexual talk pages with Template:Reliable sources for medical articles[edit]

Opinions are needed on the following matter: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine#Tagging anatomy and sexual talk pages with Template:Reliable sources for medical articles. A WP:Permalink for the discussion is here. Flyer22 (talk) 07:05, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

A little late to comment on this one but all I do wish these public service announcement-like edits were accompanied by edits to the content of the articles themselves. --Tom (LT) (talk) 01:28, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Do you mean that tagging articles with Template:Reliable sources for medical articles is like a public service announcement? Flyer22 (talk) 03:57, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

About "High 2D:4D Digit ratio linked to Asperger's syndrome"[edit]

--Tom (LT) (talk) 01:42, 18 May 2015 (UTC)


There has for some time been a proposal to merge Mesentery and Transverse mesocolon. Neither of these articles is about the word "mesentery" in general, they are about a particular, important example of a mesentery. I would not like to perform the merger myself because I do not know enough about the topic. However, I would like to see the merger done because I want to free up the use of the word "Mesentery" to cover the word's much more comprehensive use in other parts of the animal kingdom. At the moment, if I want to mention a mesentery in a sea anemone or a segmented worm, there is no suitable article to link to. Any suggestions on how best this can be dealt with? Cwmhiraeth (talk) 09:23, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

I suggest refer to Mesentery#Other animals or Mesentery#Worms or something like this for the moment - this would be consistent with the general structure we use for articles - unless you are about to upload a lot of content. We had a one-time use who uploaded articles about the separate mesenteries, but if you have a read they could be greatly simplified as they are full of pointlessly technical language ("The principle of mesenteric contiguity helps conceptualize several heretofore unresolved anatomic issues"). I hope that helps. --Tom (LT) (talk) 01:24, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I will do what you suggest. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 09:52, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

New article on anatomical variation: extensor medii proprius muscle[edit]

A new article on an anatomical variant in the hand, extensor medii proprius muscle, has been created a while ago. If possible, please help expand the articles on anatomical variations. Very little has been done in the topic. I will try to compile the list of variations, perhaps more systematically (by region e.g., back, abdomen, lower limb, etc.). We can start from there. --Athikhun 10:49, 25 May 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Athikhun.suw (talkcontribs)
