(1) PATO: Phenotypic qualities that form the building blocks of phenotype descriptions; (2) Mammalian Phenotype; (3) Plant Trait. 
These three ontologies can be downloaded from PATO Wiki(in XML format), or from OBO Foundry (in obo format: TO (plant_trait.obo) , MP (mammalian_phenotype.obo), PATO(quality.obo)). 
 
Groups that are using PATO:
