Function Details: Since completing the major work of tagging plant and botany related articles with the Wikipedia:PLANTS project banner, BotanyBot has gotten a bit bored. Articles on plant taxa, whether it be a species, genus, etc., are often placed in the most familiar category, which is usually at the family level (e.g. Category:Stylidiaceae), even when there is a more specific category. BotanyBot would remove the higher level taxa categories from the articles that appear in that category and place them in the more specific one. For example, there are a number of Acacia species articles that are in Category:Mimosoideae (subfamily) and there's even one in Category:Legumes (also known as the Fabaceae family in part). Many of these articles are already in one of the above categories and also Category:Acacia, so BotanyBot would be reducing overcategorization.
