Each AFO-concept has only one preferred label per language and concepts may have one or several entry terms.   Many AFO concepts have links to the YSO - General Finnish ontology or . We hope to have links to AGROVOC Multilingual Thesaurus of FAO or both at a later date.

The ontology is maintaned collectively by and editorial group which has representative from the Natural Resources Institute Finland, Finnish Environment Institute and the University of Helsinki Library and the Natural History Museum of Finland. The latest updates of the ontology in 2017 have been created with the assistance of the Finnish Terminology Center TSK.
