Registry Biological Spatial Ontology

An ontology for respresenting spatial concepts, anatomical axes, gradients, regions, planes, sides and surfaces. These concepts can be used at multiple biological scales and in a diversity of taxa, including plants, animals and fungi. The BSPO is used to provide a source of anatomical location descriptors for logically defining anatomical entity classes in anatomy ontologies.
