The service provides for resolution of species and organism names to scientific names as defined in a particular authority. The ideal resolution links a species name as it appears to a uniform resource identifier (URI) that unambiguously specifies it within any of various authority lists. The service is intended to standardize use of species names in taxonomy trees depicting species relationships in the Phylotastic web service.
API methods support submission of a list of taxonomic names for the service to resolve, and the API returns a URL that provides the service output along with date submitted and other metadata. Methods also support retrieval of the resolved name data, which returns a listing of authorities and the URIs they define for the submitted name.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
