EU-nomen PESI API - How To

EU-nomen's PESI (Pan-European Species directories Infrastructure) provides an online database of taxonomic information on species occurring in Europe. It merges information from other major online databases and contains hundreds of thousands of scientific names along with vernacular names in 89 languages. For many species, PESI also includes images, distribution, and conservation status as well as links to other portals that provide additional information. Developers can integrate PESI's taxonomic data into their own applications using the SOAP-based PESI API.
