The Environment Ontology is a resource and research target for the semantically controlled description of environmental entities. The ontology's initial aim was the representation of the biomes, environmental features, and environmental materials pertinent to genomic and microbiome-related investigations.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Environment Ontology should match this regular expression:
^\d{7,8}$

Example Local Unique Identifier
09200010   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Environment Ontology should match this regular expression:
^envo:\d{7,8}$

Example CURIE
envo:09200010
MIRIAM Namespace Embedded in LUI
The legacy MIRIAM standard for generating CURIEs with this resource annotates the namespaceEmbeddedInLUI as true. 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 Environment Ontology, the banana looks like ENVO:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like ENVO:09200010 (instead of the canonical form 09200010) and CURIEs for this resource that look like envo:ENVO:09200010 (instead of the canonical form envo:09200010). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.
