    hypen usage

    Strong is on the board of directors of the Chicago Climate Exchange, Wikipedia-described as "the world's first and North America's only legally binding greenhouse gas emission registry reduction system for emission sources and offset projects in North America and Brazil."

    What is the subject of the verb described? What is the function of '-' in the sentence?

    - though I'd've said 'described in Wikipedia' as that work has so many contributors (as is the case with wikis generally).
