General description

Name: SpeciesHabitat
Submitted by: AldoGangemi
Also Known As:
Intent: to represent species together with their typical environment in terms of habitat and water area
Domains:
Competency Questions:
  • what species have what habitat in what water area?
Solution description: ---
Reusable OWL Building Block: http://www.ontologydesignpatterns.org/cp/owl/fsdas/specieshabitat.owl (333)
Consequences: The pattern allows to represent species with a typical habitat and a typical water area where the exemplars can be found. However, there is no direct relation between the habitat (type) and the water area; in principle, it is possible that there are no places in the water area that provide the conditions for that habitat.

In order to represent that a species has a habitat within a given water area, the situation pattern should be reused and specialized, as in the speciesconditions.owl pattern.

Scenarios: give me the species having a 'demersal' habitat in water area '24'

Elements

The SpeciesHabitat Content OP locally defines the following ontology elements:

Class Habitat (owl:Class) Habitat is the biological and ecological context of a species in the area of an aquatic resource.
Habitat page
ObjectProperty hasHabitat (owl:ObjectProperty)
hasHabitat page
ObjectProperty isHabitatFor (owl:ObjectProperty)
isHabitatFor page

Additional information

This pattern encodes a FSDAS competency question, with an indication to use some Species class, and some hasHabitat property, with range xsd:string. Since the application task of FSDAS is to jointly query FIGIS factsheet data and RTMS time series data, the pattern must encode elements that can be easily mapped to FIGIS and RTMS schemas/ontologies. Issue (1) mapping Species to FIGIS schema, since the needed schema elements are two instead of one. Issue (2) representation of habitats in the pattern is intuitively with objects, since habitats are typically objects, and points in a value space (as the referents of xsd datatypes typically are). The suggestion in the competencey question is to use xsd.string though.
