get_natservid_(

Arguments

sci_com

character; A vector of common or scientific names. Or, a taxon_state object (see taxon-state)

searchtype

character; One of 'scientific' (default) or 'common'. This doesn't affect the query to NatureServe - but rather affects what column of data is targeted in name filtering post data request.

ask

logical; should get_natservid be run in interactive mode? If TRUE and more than one wormsid is found for the species, the user is asked for input. If FALSE NA is returned for multiple matches. default: TRUE

messages

logical; should progress be printed? default: TRUE

rows

numeric; Any number from 1 to infinity. If the default NaN, all rows are considered. Note that this function still only gives back a natservid class object with one to many identifiers. See get_natservid_() to get back all, or a subset, of the raw data that you are presented during the ask process.

query

Deprecated, see sci_com

...

curl options passed on to crul::verb-POST

x

Input to as.natservid

check

logical; Check if ID matches any existing on the DB, only used in as.natservid()

Value

A vector of taxonomic identifiers as an S3 class. If a taxon is not found an NA is given. If more than one identifier is found the function asks for user input if ask = TRUE, otherwise returns NA. If ask=FALSE and rows does not equal NA, then a data.frame is given back, but not of the uid class, which you can't pass on to other functions as you normally can.

Authentication no longer required
