To Do

Pager

The pager implementation for all specified services are yet to be developed.

Notes

JSON Default

Even though the specification mentions JSON as the default view, the usual REST service request url practice is to include 'application/json' in the request 'Accept' header or set json as response type in the request url itself (e.g. http://dev.e-taxonomy.eu/cdmserver/col/name_catalogue.json?query=Abies%20alba)

Name String Search

Examples

To Do

Notes

  • Could be interesting to add a list of name lsids in the response.

Name Information

Examples

To Do

Notes

  • At the moment taxon lsids are not included in the response in the case where the name uuid corresponds to a synonym. Would it be interesting to return taxon lsids of the accepted taxa (could be more than one) of this synonym ?

Taxon Information

Examples

To Do

Notes

  • At the moment, the classification map is not included when the taxon uuid corresponds to a synonym. Would it be correct to return classification maps of the accepted taxa (could be more than one) of this synonym ?

  • At the moment, for synonyms, only the list of accepted taxa are included in related taxa field in the response. Would it be interesting to include even the synonyms of these accepted taxa ?
