How does the CV adjust when there are changes in taxonomy?

We’re currently for shooting for twice a year, but 2019 had a lot of interruptions in the form of experimenting with and training a model that could fit on a phone for Seek. Given the current way we do it, it can take months from start to finish, depending on how accurate we need / want it to be, how much QA / QC we do, problems we encounter during the process, etc. We’re shooting for at least twice a year, which we’re hoping is reasonable and gives us enough spare time to experiment with different stuff on the same hardware. It’s possible we’ll figure out a way to update the model without fully re-training it, which would allow us to add new taxa at a higher frequency. That’s one of those experiments we haven’t had time to do yet.
