taxa: Classes for Storing and Manipulating Taxonomic Data

Provides classes for storing and manipulating taxonomic data. Most of the classes can be treated like base R vectors (e.g. can be used in tables as columns and can be named). Vectorized classes can store taxon names and authorities, taxon IDs from databases, taxon ranks, and other types of information. More complex classes are provided to store taxonomic trees and user-defined data associated with them.
