The service provides a record of fossils found and documented, including their locations, the organisms represented, and their living environment at the time when they were alive. It compiles paleobiology information to document plant and animal life at specific points in space and time. Information about individual fossils and species is supported by broader taxonomic information.
API methods support HTTP GET requests for fossil occurrences documenting presence of an organism, or a distinctive part of an organism, identified with a location and timeframe. The API gives access to records compliant with the XML format of the Species 2000 Catalogue of Life to provide taxonomic, stratigraphic, geologic, and geochronological data along with records of particular fossils and organisms.
