Abstract
    This note discusses requirements for a knowledge medium in sponge taxonomy. Such a knowledge medium provides computer-support for the day-to-day scientific work of a group of expert-scientists, working in the field of systematics for sponges. It is also an instrument for the dissemination and use of the research results produced in it. The quality of such a knowledge medium depends on the extent in which it supports the daily practices of scientists working together, making abstraction of the differences in time, space and conceptual vocabulary that divides them. After a general motivation we describe a selection of functional and non-functional requirements and illustrate these with an experimental implementation based on software agents on the World-Wide Web.
