FloraBrasil API

The service provides a catalog of plant species in Brazil with the goal of supporting documentation and conservation of flora across national, regional and local areas within the country. It is part of the Brazilian government's commitments under the international Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) to support the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC). API methods support access to a checklist of plant organisms by genus, species, and subspecies, with parameters for output language, data format, etc. Methods also support listings of categories of organisms, geographic locations, and related characteristics of the Brazilian environment.
