The biocon—biological conventions—package aids the typesetting of some biological conventions.
At the moment, it makes a good job of typesetting species names (and ranks below the species level). A distinction is made between the Plant, Fungi, Animalia and Bacteria kingdoms. There are default settings for the way species names are typeset, but they can be customized. Different default styles are used in different situations.
