Bio::Taxon is the new preferred way of dealing with taxonomic information in Bioperl.

It can be used to represent information about any taxonomic rank, for example a species. The old Bio::Species module is now a special-case of Bio::Taxon intended for describing a species only, but will eventually be deprecated.

Bio::Taxon objects inherit from Bio::Tree::Node and so can be used in Bio::Tree::Tree objects, giving access to all the useful Bio::Tree::TreeFunctionsI methods.

The change log describes the changes that were involved in transitioning Bio::Species to Bio::Taxon.
