Arguments

sci_com

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

wiki_site

(character) Wiki site. One of species (default), pedia, commons

wiki

(character) language. Default: en

ask

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

messages

logical; should progress be printed?

limit

(integer) number of records to return

rows

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

x

For get_wiki(): deprecated, see sci_com. For as.wiki, various, see examples

...

Ignored

check

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

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.

See get_id_details for further details including attributes and exceptions

Details

For wiki_site = "pedia" , we use the english language site by default. Set the wiki parameter for a different language site.
