Scientific Classification of Plants[edit]

I'm confused as to which reference manual/site was used to classify Plants (and possibly animals).

For example: Lilium Lilies shows underneath the heading "Scientific Classification":

     Kingdom: Plantae ; (unranked):Angiosperm ; (unranked): Monocots;  Order: Liliales  family:Liliaceae subfamily:Lilioideae genus:Lilium

I think this article and countless other plants articles have mistakes/errs. There are empty classification headings, Err/incorrect classifications, and I'm not sure but possibly unecessary classification categories added.

Using the Lilium Lilies article as an example, the empty classification heading shown as: (unranked): Angiosperm is one: not filled in and two: incorrect. The classification would be (Division/Phylum) and the correct Division/Phylum would be, according to USDA[1], Magnoliophyta – Flowering plants

Original Article Correction
(unranked): Angiosperm Division/Phylum: Magnoliophyta
(unranked): Monocots Class: Liliopsida – Monocotyledons
Subfamily: Lilioideae Subclass: Lilidae*

[*]Subfamily is listed lower down and accepted classification include: Kingdom,Subkingdom, Superdivision, Class, Subclass, Order, Family, and Genus followed by Species.

The reason I bring this up is because the accepted classification for plants is based upon Linnaeus's Systema Naturae. I've seen some articles reference the International Association for Plant Toxonomy, they follow that system, which a similiar classification system is used for the other 8 Kingdoms, yet articles are still either mislabeled, misinformed or completely incorrect. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:56, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Regional foods categorisation[edit]

Good afternoon. I'm working on some Italian regional cuisine articles and I'm in doubt: how should typical regional cheeses and agricultural products be categorised? Both subcategories of "Cuisine of region XXX"? Thanks. Cloverleaf II (talk) 14:33, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Italian cuisine[edit]

The Italian cuisine article has been rated as 'high importance' by WikiProject Food and drink. It is currently GA status, but I have nominated it for reassessment. Any input would be great, here. Sotakeit (talk) 11:12, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Poultry[edit]

Article "Cyperus rotundus" might need some quality check[edit]

Quoting the article: "Some part of the plant was eaten by humans at some point in ancient history."

this article might at some point have been written by humans in ancient wiki history

and could urgently use some serious quality check...

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Food Safety Hazard[edit]

Dear food experts: This old AfC submission will soon be deleted as a stale draft. Is this a notable topic that should be kept and improved instead? Or is this information already covered somewhere? —Anne Delong (talk) 03:44, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

I took a very quick pass at the article. The opening sentence was out of whack and there was a heading right before the opening sentence, which is never done. I took a whack at the headings, but I don't care enough about the subject to do a thorough copyedit. Look at the review and why it was rejected: it reads like an essay and doesn't appear to be NPOV. Make sure there is no opinion in the prose (unless it is sourced, and then mark it as such), and make sure every claim is backed up by a reliable, verifiable reference. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 12:54, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, Frεcklεfσσt, for taking a look at this. By editing the draft you have postponed its deletion for six months. I presume since you took the time to improve it that you believe that the topic itself would make a good article. I have had plenty of experience with whipping improperly written articles into shape, but, lacking knowledge of the food industry, I want to make sure that the topic is suitable and not already covered elsewhere, so that I don't waste my time. There are about 3,000 of these abandoned drafts every month (Category:G13 eligible AfC submissions), so I have to pick and choose which ones to "rescue". —Anne Delong (talk) 13:50, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Wow, 3000 a month? Sorry for assuming you wrote the draft. I was a little distracted and didn't check. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 13:55, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, quite a number of them are obviously hopeless, and there are several other people checking them besides me. Still, a lot of them go unchecked because there are so many. Here's one I found that was never submitted; it's been sitting unnoticed since last year: Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Top Chef PolskaAnne Delong (talk) 20:22, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Darren Walsh (chef)[edit]

Please take a look at Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Darren Walsh (chef). I think the person is notable, but this is not an area I know much about. I copied the article to es:Darren Walsh (chef) in the Spanish Wikipedia, but I don't know whether it will be kept there. Eastmain (talkcontribs) 16:12, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
