Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Agronomy Vocabulary should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
2842   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Agronomy Vocabulary should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
Namespace Embedded in LUI
This resource has been annotated by the Bioregistry as having a potential namespace embedded in LUI. This means that you may see local unique identifiers that include a redundant prefix and delimiter (also known as a banana) and therefore look like a CURIE. For Agronomy Vocabulary, the banana looks like c_. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like c_2842 (instead of the canonical form 2842) and CURIEs for this resource that look like agrovoc:c_2842 (instead of the canonical form agrovoc:2842). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.
