PhyloPic API

PhyloPic is a phylogenetic taxonomy and a database of reusable silhouette images of plants, animals, and other life forms. PhyloPic exposes the information in its database through an API. The API provides access to PNG formatted images and a variety of metadata such as names, taxonomical information and user information. The API is also able to manipulate the database by managing user accounts, enabling or disabling hyponyms, adding or editing names, and more.
