Groups of organisms require labels or names to refer to them, however the idea of a single static name index, although tempting for its simplicity, is both impractical and unadvisable as a basis for referring to organisms for which data has been collected and stored for analyses and sharing. The relevant issues are described and some of the challenges facing database researchers are discussed.
