Can also provide -d to specific the directory to store index files in, -o to specific the location of your nodes file, and -a for the names file. Or the option -e to use the web-based entrez taxonomy database if you don't have the flatfiles installed.

Providing the nodes.dmp and names.dmp files from the NCBI Taxonomy dump (see Bio::DB::Taxonomy::flatfile for more info) is only necessary on the first time running. This will create the local indexes and may take quite a long time. However once created, these indexes will allow fast access for species to taxon id OR taxon id to species name lookups.
