3.4. Species authority files

The programs in this suite need basically only one operation from the species authority files: look up a species code and see if it is valid.

Base class BaseSpeciesSet describes the interface for this operation. Derived classes handle the details of the different species authority files.

This class is detailed in Section 13, “class BaseSpeciesSet: Base class for species authority objects”.
